Dell Studio Desktop


The Dell Studio Desktop is a jack of all trades but a master of none.

HDMI and DisplayPort. 802.11n wireless networking. Minimal crapware.

No Blu-ray. Pricier than competition. Only 30-day subscription to McAfee Internet Security. Awkward hard drive expansion.

Dell Studio Desktop Review and Ratings


The Dell Studio Desktop is a fine media-ready machine—with just a few key limitations.

64-bit operating system ; Lots of RAM ; TV tuner and large hard drive ideal for Media Center functionality ; Wireless adapter included

No Blu-ray drive ; Limited 3D capabilities, expansion room ; Not designed for most entertainment centers

Pretty Smooth


Specs: QuadCore 3GHz, 8GB ram, 640GB hard drive. I bought this computer for the 64-bit operating system, which allows me to fully utilize 8GB of ram for statistical software that I use. Multi-tasking is very smooth. It hasn't crashed once since I've...

Fantabulous Machine!


I love this pc. I have always owned HP in the past and had so many problems with them. I decided on a Dell this time and am very glad I did. I built & ordered it on Sun., it was shipped the next day and delivered at my home 2 days later. Fast delivery!...
