The Dell Inspiron Zino HD is a full-fledged multimedia compact desktop available in 10 optional interchangeable colors and designs. It features the Windows 7 operating system, a single- or dual-core AMD Athlon processor, 3GB of RAM (up to 8GB), and a choice of storage from 160GB up to 1TB. At its base, it is not especially impressive; but the wide array of upgrade options is what sets it over the top. Included is a 2.1-channel HD sound blaster, as well as an optional Ati Radeon HD discrete graphics card, 802.11b/g or 80211b/g/n WiFi, and either a DVD or BD drive. With its Gigabit port, it can easily function (especially if high storage is chosen) as the central hub to a high-powered at-home network.
