Excerpt: The Dell Studio One 19 (EO19-USE012CS) ($999.99 list), which is available at Costco, is very similar to the Studio One 19 I looked at earlier this year. Like the previous iteration, this Studio One 19 is a smallish all in one PC with a 18.5-inch touch screen panel. It’s more powerful than the sub $600 all in one nettops we’re seeing on the market these days, and it’s also priced accordingly.
Summary: At Â£599, the Dell Studio One 19 is somewhere in between the entry-level Atom-based all-in-ones and high-end all-in-ones like the Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 and Apple iMac 20-inch. It's a balanced product, offering good value for money, and it comes with a better-than-average touchscreen experience. Buy it if you are unconvinced about the compromises of some Atom-based all-in-ones and don't want to shell out a fortune for a good-looking all-in-one.
Dell Studio One 19 S210502MY (All-In-One) Desktop Review
29 July 2009
Conclusion: The Dell Studio One 19 (S210502MY) is now retailing at RM 3,999 – a rather steep price for an AIO. It’s a great option if you’re looking for a one-stop entertainment unit that not only looks chic but takes up little space. If you’re looking for a cost-effective desktop unit, perhaps the Inspiron series is what you should be looking at. Personally, I think the Dell Studio One 19 is great for compact quarters, such as living rooms and bedrooms of limited space.
Summary: The Dell Studio One 19 has the best combination of price and performance among touchscreen-capable devices; if you spend any less, you'll have a PC that performs like a netbook. Unfortunately, its anaemic connections and lack of upgradability are a lethal combination.
Excerpt: This touch-screen PC is enticing in its low-end configurations, but the higher-end models are costly considering the screen size. Plus, its design, while sleek, isn’t all that friendly for families with young children.
Pros: Slim and stylish, Cozi Webware adds functionality and substance to otherwise gimmicky touch software, Crisp, loud speakers, Integrated power brick
Cons: Cloth accents likely to soil over time, Recessed touch screen makes cleaning LCD tricky, Higher-end configurations are expensive, but don’t offer much of a graphics boost
Summary: Dell has undergone a design remodeling of sorts during the past year. Gone are the bulky, plastic-looking computers, and in their place is a fleet of forward-thinking, streamlined devices that have an appearance more in common with a Mac Pro than a PC. The Dell Studio One 19 is a sleek and modified version of the company’s latest XPS One desktop, and uses an 18.5-inch curved panel LCD display with touch capability to operate.
