Summary: As meisters who recognize the versatility of a home theater PC, we find the Studio Hybrid to be a compelling desktop. Its small size and color options makes it very easy to coordinate in any home or office.
Summary: The Dell Studio Hybrid is a disappointment. On the one hand, it's one of the most visually attractive consumer propositions Dell has ever created. The look and style of the SH is undeniably cool.
Excerpt: Despite what your gut may tell you, the Dell Studio Hybrid doesn’t actually run on a combination of ethanol and D-cells. It does, however, consume about 70 percent less electricity than those hulking desktop towers, meaning you can green up your digs and improve the décor in the process.
Pros: Sips power, unlike those heinous watt-guzzling towers. Swappable color sleeves let you change the paint job to match your mood-or paint job. Reports for media-center duty with HDMI port and slot-loading Blu-ray drive. Metal stand cleverly morphs between vertical and horizontal positions.
Cons: Wussy integrated graphics choke on 3D games. Looks rigged for silent running, but actually runs a little noisy. 0 bamboo sleeve will only appeal to aristocratic pandas.
Summary: If you consider all of the options in the price range, the Dell Studio Hybrid is not very compelling. However, if you limit yourself to the very specific niche of small PCs, you'll appreciate its clever design and relatively powerful hardware.
Pros: Flexible allows custom appearance and positioning, Best combination of looks and specifications among supersmall desktops.
Cons: Standard budget PCs offer better value and more upgradeability, Laptops deliver better space economy with similar specifications for the dollar
