Dell G2x10 and XPS 435

Dell on Thursday started shipping its first two consciously eco-friendly LCDs. The 22-inch G2210 and 24-inch G2410 are both tuned to use power only when necessary and have ambient light sensors that auto-adjust the backlight to match the environment. They also have a PowerNap feature that more quickly cuts power use and are built from one quarter recycled material.

Both use LED backlights and low-cost panels, with their contrast ratios scaling up to 1,000,000:1 thanks to dynamic local dimming. They also have 5ms pixel response times and relatively narrow 170-degree horizonal (160 vertical) viewing angles. DVI and VGA provide video input. In return for the lower-cost displays, Dell is selling the two G-series displays at $239 for the G2210 and $349 for the G2410.

In addition, Dell has officially priced out its Studio XPS 435 high-end desktop. The entry system now starts at $1,099 with a 2.66GHz Core i7, 3GB of memory, a 500GB hard drive and a previous-generation Radeon HD 3650 video card. A $1,299 model climbs to 4GB of memory, a 750GB hard drive and a newer Radeon HD 4670, while the fastest model at a regular $1,739 (currently $1,549) adds a 24-inch S2409W display and steps the memory up to 6GB. As expected, options exist to upgrade to as much as 24GB of RAM ($1,500), a Radeon HD 4870 1GB card ($250) and options for Blu-ray that range from a $120 single combo drive to $230 for a full burner plus a secondary DVD burner.

Orders placed today for the mid-tower PC start shipping in mid-March.
