Studio 14 laptop
Dell Malaysia has quietly become the first recipient of the Studio 14, the company's first sub-15-inch Studio model. The new design puts a 14-inch, 1280x800 display with an LED backlight into the more upscale design of the series and is customizable with any of seven different lid colors. comes with relatively fast parts that include a 2.1GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM, and a 250GB hard drive. The system is nonetheless relatively minimal in graphics with the previous-generation GMA X3100 for video.
The Studio 14 comes with Vista Home Premium and is priced at the equivalent of $1,040 US; whether it will be available in the US is unknown, though the Studio line launched first in that country before spreading elsewhere. [via Engadget]
