Excerpt: Let’s take you back to 2005 when Apple introduced the Mac mini, a full-fledged computer inside of a 6.5 inch square enclosure. It was very impressive at the time, but now there are many competitors on the market including the Dell Inspiron Zino HD, which we’re taking a look at today.
Pros: Compact enclosure perfect for the living room., Built-in 802.11n wireless networking., No bloatware installed.
Conclusion: I love how the “mini desktop” is starting to take off, and even more glad that Dell as jumped in (because they will soon show up in the outlet, and you can usually get in on great outlet coupon deals!).
Excerpt: More and more of Dell's range have colourful designs and the Zino HD is no exception. The top of the Zino is available in a range of attractive colours and patterns, while the rest of the design is both sleek and curvaceous.
Excerpt: Dell has certainly improved in its production of Desktop PCs. Even though it is a well established producer when it comes to Laptops, it has been a bit low in the production of Desktop PCs, and particularly, mini PCs.

Conclusion: The Dell Inspiron Zino HD is a basic, low-cost computer with some media playback capabilities but little else. An HDMI connection means you can connect the nettop PC to televisions easily, but it won't play 1080p high-definition content smoothly.
Pros: Inexpensive, eSATA, hard drive is upgradeable
Cons: Can't play Full HD content smoothly, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth not standard, no remote control
