Dell Launches Tiny, Little Inspiron Zino HD

Measuring in at 8-inches square, the base configuration rings in at $229 and packs AMD's single-core Athlon 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, a DVD burner, integrated Radeon HD 3200 video and Windows Vista.

Then again, with options for an Athlon X2 or Neo X2, up to 8GB or RAM, up to 1 TB of storage, an ATI Radeon HD 4330 512MB card, and upgrades to various different versions of Windows 7, the pricing does tend to creep up. That said, Dell has a pretty decent pre-configured option on its site: For $649 you'll get AMD's Athlon 2850e, 4GB of DDR2, ATI Radeon HD 4330, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium, integrated 2.1 HD audio and a 20" Dell ST2010 widescreen HD monitor.

Who's interested?

    If the HDMI supports audio this thing has 7.1 channels of HD audio.

    Faster CPU and gfx than an Atom, HDMI port (non on mac mini) and the same price to boot. This is the perfect HTPC.

    well, good for u then... i guess everything's made to catch up to apple... btw, if this is apple, it would have cost at least double that price...

  • i thought the point of an HTPC was to be able playback multimedia. can this thing -- the cheapest base config -- actually do that? seems a little weak under the hood.

    Honestly, I think it is just ugly. Plus I would rather spend a bit more and get the next gen Atom with Ion.
