Summary: The DELL itself appears to work well. It does have an issue in which the front headphones jack is not working, and the USB ports do not support the charging of iPods. It is nice looking and has some nice energy saving features. Comes with wireless keyboard and mouse with the wireless receiver integrated into the unit. The wireless LAN was a little hokey in that it was a USB dongle/antenna and not integrated into the unit. The item is listed by Overstock as new condition.
Summary: Bought one from the Dell outlet. Core 2 Duo 2ghz and 4g ram. Great for streaming high def media and playing dvds. I use this in my living room and it looks great, doesn't take up much more space than a media player external hard drive. The touch panel is a really cool feature. Smaller than my dvd player. Some minor issues with boxee, but it's still in it's early stages for Windows. Haven't installed Linux yet.
Excerpt: Introduction- The Dell Studio Hybrid Desktop is the first product to be aimed at the media centre market.Products aimed at this market are produced to perform more from an entertainment angle rather than a work perspective.This means that the hardware is configured to connect and perform with video and audio products found in the household thus making the product the centre piece of your multimedia setup(this is the reason for the tag media centre pc).
