The cute new Inspiron Zino HD mini desktop computer from Dell may, at a tiny 7.8" x 7.8" x 3.4" and 3.53lb weigh-in, seem like it's only nipping at the heels of its larger counterparts, but its dinky dimensions belie some pretty impressive capabilities.
With a choice of interchangeable colour and design casings (7 colour options and 3 artist-designed patterns are offered to suit,) this techno-cube is certainly making a bid for your aesthetic affections, but with a decent spec back-up, the Inspiron Zino HD is boxing clever. Prices range from £299 upwards, with a basic package nicely suited to being tucked away as an element of a multi-media entertainment set-up (2048MB Dual Channel DDR2 800MHz memory, 320GB hard drive, integrated HD 3200 graphics card and DVD/CD RW optical drive.) The mid-range model comes with a monitor, more powerful processor, hard drive, increased memory, etc. to bridge the gap between the basic and higher-end model, which, from £719, comes with a Blu-Ray ROM drive aswell as standard increased performance to include a 1TB hard drive. So, whether you need a space-saving multi-media addition to your living room or powerful mini desktop office performer, Dell has it covered.
4 USB ports and HDMI make it ideal for sitting under the living room flat-screen.
