It might look like a blurry humidor, but in actual fact this is Dell’s upcoming Studio Hybrid mini PC. Clad in what’s believed to be orange plexiglass, the machine – an update of the bamboo eco computer seen in April – may be small but the spec list certainly isn’t shy: an unspecified Intel chipset, 4GB of RAM and 320GB hard-drive makes for a very reasonable compact computer.
Other specs include WiFi, a DVD+R drive and a memory card reader. Dell seem to be positioning the Studio Hybrid as a potential HTPC, since there’s lashings of connectivity: five USB ports, an HDMI port, S/PDIF and DVI.
No word on price or availability, but Dell have previously suggested somewhere in the region of $500 to $700. That makes it more than, say, ASUS’ Eee PC, but then the components are a whole lot more grown up.
