galaxy s3 covers

Dell just introduced three new computers that are focused on entertainment.

At the center of the new lineup is the Inspiron One, with features that set it apart from other all-in-one PCs including: a full HD 23-inch LED-backlit LCD; an optional quad-core processor that zips through web surfing, movie watching, family photo album creation, video chats and more. It has a host of audio/visual inputs that instantly transform the PC into a TV, perfect for student dorm rooms and family settings. And it also offers a new Dell-designed intuitive user interface called Stage, which delivers one-touch access to favorite content, like music, photos and videos, and applications.

Rounding out the refreshed Inspiron desktop family is the Inspiron Zino HD, the next-generation version of the award-winning system that sports a powerhouse entertainment experience in a compact design. The Inspiron Zino HD connects easily to big-screen high-definition TVs for an amazing family entertainment experience. With an optional remote control and wireless keyboard, viewers can surf the Internet from their living room couch, watch Blu-Ray DVDs or browse their music and photo libraries – all on the big screen. And its compact 8-inch-by-8-inch footprint fits unobtrusively anywhere.

Both the Inspiron One all-in-one and the Zino HD offer Dell’s hallmark fashion-forward, stylish designs and make perfect gifts for the upcoming holiday season.

Inspiron One: The All-In-One One-For-All

The Inspiron One is a sleek desktop featuring a full high-definition (1080p) widescreen color display, along with built-in Wi-Fi, webcam, DVD drive and HDMI interface for connecting to TV tuners, cable- and satellite boxes and gaming consoles. The available remote control makes it easy to stream video, watch high-definition TV or play video games on the computer’s big screen.

The space-saving design fits perfectly in tight places, whether it’s in a corner in the kitchen or on a desk in the home office, and even features a unique storage space under the display for the keyboard when not in use. The Energy Star 5.0-compliant Inspiron One is also environmentally friendly; its highly efficient WLED backlit display consumes less power and is mercury–free and arsenic-free.

Dell Stage: The Perfect Keep-In-Touch Interface

To make using the Inspiron One even more fun and productive, Dell has created a special user interface called Stage, which lets families and students quickly access their favorite content as well as a collection of creative applications, including “Touch Instruments,” “You Paint,” “Sticky Notes” and “Touch Cam.”

Dell Stage presents instant access to collections of music, photos, videos, games and other applications. For instance:

  • Touching the MusicStage tile reveals an individual’s personal music collection.
  • The VideoStage organizes personal videos and downloaded TV shows and movies and gives people the ability to purchase or rent content directly from partners like CinemaNow in the United States.
  • The PhotoStage includes integrated social networking capabilities through Facebook and Flickr so people can upload their latest photos or views pictures of their friends.
