Dell officially released its small Studio Hybrid desktop computers. These systems are about 80 percent smaller than standard desktops and use 70% less power. The Studio Hybrid is Dell's greenest PC and the firm says the system is made from 95% recyclable materials and features a PSU with a 87% efficiency.
More flexible than a typical PC, the Dell Studio Hybrid is an anywhere-you-want-it-desktop. Our smallest desktop, it looks great in the living room, on the desk, or anywhere else space is at a premium. And because sleeves are available in 6 colors or Bamboo, you know it’ll match your sense of style. Plus, it uses energy-efficient Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile Processors, so you can enjoy its power while helping to preserve the planet.
