Dell's All-in-One Hits U.S. at $699

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 18 comments

The Studio One 19 was officially announced by Dell back in March but with a Japan only release. Today, the Studio One 19 comes to the U.S.

The all-in-one Studio features a 19-inch LCD display with 1366 x 768 resolution and optional multi-touch capabilities. The system also flaunts a stylish aluminum, glass and fabric design and comes in an array of colors, including white, red, blue, pink and charcoal.

They come outfitted with Intel processors ranging from the Celeron 450 to the beefy Core 2 Quad 8200, and a choice of either Nvidia GeForce 9200 or GeForce 9400 integrated graphics. The system also features 1 GB to 4 GB of dual-channel memory, 160 GB to 750 GB of hard drive storage, 2.1-channel audio output, a 7-in-1 media card reader and a choice of either a slot-load DVD burner or a read-only Blu-ray combo drive.  Helping to keep the price down, optional features include integrated 802.11b/g/n WiFi, a 1.3-megapixel web camera, a microphone and facial recognition security.


As far as we’re concerned it’s a sleek looking machine with decent specs to boot but we’d like to see a 24-inch version at a higher price point with a dedicated GPU. Check out it out on Dell's website.

    Wi-Fi is an optional Add-on? And integrated Wi-Fi to boot! Who wants to clutter up an all-in-one by running an ethernet cable to it?

    The optional wireless keyboard and mouse are nice, but they aren't blue-tooth. What do you do a year from now when your dell keyboard dies past warranty?

    Still using my Dell keyboard from my old Dell Dimension 4400 purchased in 2001.

    (Then I got smart and started to build my own computers.)

    Water cooling on a Q8200 anyone? Running this machine at 100% 24/7 should kill it in 3 months...then you will have to call "Dell's Special Customer Service in India" and they will script you troubleshoots or route you to another rep for 2hours because the department you are trying to reach has 2hour minimum wait limit ^_^

    I gave up on dell a long time ago...long, long time ago. Enjoy!

    Why bother? All-in-one aren't, and probably shouldn't, be geared towards any kind of gaming. I would recommend something like this to my wife/in-laws/grandparents/or kid, on the off chance that I didn't feel like building one for them.

    I agree. No hard gaming on this one...Price point for me really isn't quite worth it either. Sorry Dell ^_^

    It's more than that. You have more control over what goes on the computer. It runs smoother simply because of that. No futzing around with repartitioning hard drives and begging for OS install discs :D

    To Dell: Keep this concept but change the monitor to a minimum 42" LCD, blue tooth for control of the keyboard/mouse pointer, and add a stealthed blueray drive slot loaded drive on the side. Either that or just send me one of these to demo for you.

    This would work well if the multitouch is good, for my kitchen. And I've got ethernet behind the wall, just need to pop it out behind where I'd mount it. Wireless is worthless for any real data transfers, even N sucks compared to my gig network. Try streaming 1080p to a PS3 via wireless with anything else going on.

    Higher end GPU = more heat = bad for touch screen.

    I've seen Apple do the same. Now we have PCs making all-in-ones. Whether it's an Apple or PC... I DON'T GET IT. You can tell me all day that it's sylish, chic, or space saving... but for each price point of these all-ones computers something better. A laptop.

    I could use a 19" 1366 x 768 resolution monitor all day. My 17" laptop has a higher resolution.

    I could see these being used in retail / public environments. These would be great for kiosks and libraries.

    Wow look like trouble to me.
    Wouldn't touch that with a 100 foot pole.
    Just like a laptop, this guy will overheat and die just after the guarantee expires, trust me on this one.

    If you buy, good luck with RMA in India,
