Dell launches new Studio laptops with cases that add color to a laptop lineup that previously sported a predominantly industrial look. The desktop-replacement Studio 15 and Studio 17 laptops will be available in seven colors, said John New, a senior manager of global consumer marketing at Dell. With prices starting at $799, the laptop line is sandwiched between the budget Inspiron line and the high-end XPS line.
Studio 15 comes with a 15.4-inch screen, with prices starting at $799. Studio 17 comes with a 17-inch screen, with prices starting at $999. The laptops include dual-core Intel Core 2 Duo processors, support for up to 4GB of memory and up to 320GB of hard-drive storage. The Studio 15 laptop will also be available with Advanced Micro Devices chips, but only at retail stores for now, New said.
