Dell Studio One 19: Tactile Titillation

For months, Japan has gotten to play with Dell's latest desktop, the Studio One 19 All-in-One. But now Europe and the states get to join in on the fun. Made out of aluminum, glass, and fabric and sporting one measly power cord, the Studio One looks so good you just have to touch it which is exactly what Dell wants you to do.


The Studio One has an optional touch capability to let eager fingers get hands on with their work. The You Paint software, included int the package, lets you reconnect with your inner Kindergartner without the messy cleanup (besides the fingerprint-smudged screen of course). There's also a percussion center that lets you bang out a beat on a simulated drum kit. When that gets, users can edit photos, create playlists and slideshows as well as browse the web.


While the touchscreen thing is pretty cool, it can get a little gimmicky after awhile. Luckily, the Studio One has a solid hold in the performance and power departments. The $699 base system includes an Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor, Windows Vista Home Basic, 2 GB of memory, a 320 GB SATA hard drive, and a 9200 Integrated Graphics card, which is not too shabby. It also includes a 7-in-1 media card reader, six USB ports to cover any and all peripheral needs, and a CD/DVD burner.

Although it's being marketed as a great family computer for Mom and the kids, the thought of sticky jam fingers caressing this beauty just seems a little wrong. So go ahead and be a little selfish, we won't tell anyone.
