Dell Studio 15 with 720p-capable display launches

New Dell Studio 15 Laptops Now Stateside



For those of you in the market for a new primary laptop (vs. a netbook) I encourage you to check out our updated Studio 15 laptop. While we have been selling the Studio 15 for almost a year now, today we’ve refreshed some features and technologies that take it up a notch for in performance and entertainment capabilities. When we first rolled out the updated Studio 15 in Asia several weeks ago, two features got a lot of attention from folks like Engadget:

Energy efficient and mercury-free 15.6-inch 16:9 LED display options in HD resolution (720p/900p/1080p). These backlit LED displays also support excellent color reproduction for photos and movies.
Optional 256 or 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD4570 graphics to take on the more graphics-intensive applications, like playing games, decoding video, video chats, etc.

The new(er) Studio 15 also features entertainment-centric features like 5.1 channel audio with a 3-watt subwoofer, dual headphone jacks so you can share your movies and music with a friend, and an optional slot-load Blu-ray disc drive. Hint: the Studio 15 can also moonlight as the family Blu-ray player – just connect it to an HDTV with an HDMI cable grab the popcorn and, voila, family movie night at home is a hit. Or catch up on missed favorite show the same way - my hubby and I watched last week’s Amazing Race before this week’s, by connecting the family laptop to our 40-inch HDTV and heading to CBS.com. It’s definitely worth the investment in a second HDMI cable. Other ports and connections include an 8-in-1 media card reader, dual USB ports, one USB/eSATA combo port.

Of course the Studio includes a complete with array of built-in connectivity options including standard Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi, optional Bluetooth support, and Mobile Broadband. It also features a 2.0MP camera with dual digital array microphones, with optional facial recognition software ($25) so you can keep personal files and data private.

And as with the previous generation, individuals can personalize the exterior of their Studio 15 laptop with a variety of unique color and design options. The personalization palette includes six colors: Ruby Red, Midnight Blue, Plum Purple, Spring Green, Promise Pink (generates a $5 donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.) and something new called Black Chainlink. I personally like this option – it’s a glossy black finish, with a subtle chainlink texture that can help reduce fingerprinting (unless you’ve been into the fried chicken or pizza, and then you are on your own).





Update: If you want to see more images, either visit this link to Dell's Official Flickr page, or click on the image below.


Customers will also be able to choose initially from more than 30 of the most popular Design Studio images to decorate their Studio 15. BTW – keep an eye on the Design Studio – Ed Boyd and the consumer design team have been busier than elves in December prepping for our next “showing” and it’s pretty awesome.
