Yesterday Dell announced a partnership with MLB and O P I the nail polish maker. They announced that they will be releasing notebooks that you can customize with your favorite baseball teams logo or with 6 of the most popular colors from the O P I nail polish line which have whitty names like “I’m not really a waitress Red”.
At the press conference there didn’t seem to be much excitement about the announcement, although I have to say the Mets laptop was pretty cool! I’m a huge Mets fan. But at the same time I don’t think I want to own a notebook that is permanently covered in Mets logos.
Today Dell launched a new landing page aimed at offering users a glimpse into their new thin 9.99-mm Adamo by Dell Concept.
However the website they created offers no real information on the device just a form to get their newsletter. If those of you are curious about the “Fall in love with” wording on the landing page, it is there because Adamo is “to fall in love with” in latin.

Dell today showed off their new Inspiron Zino HD desktop system at a press event in NYC. I can’t go into the details about the specs but I can share you a picture of the system which has a small form factor and uses desktop parts and not notebook parts.
The Zino HD will be available in 7 colors and 3 designer patterns. Sorry for the bad picture.

On the same day it was announced that Dells sales were down 64% when compared to last year, they announced a new Studio laptop, the Studio 14z which will feature a 14 inch HD screen and a 500 GB hdd.
The Studio 14z is available in 6 colors; Chain Link, Midnight Blue, Spring Green, Plum Purple, Ruby Red and Promise Pink (U.S. only). Dell will donate $5 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure from the purchase of each Promise Pink laptop. The six colors willl appeal to pretty much everyone, I personally like the blue one.

Today Dell announced their new Studio One 19, an all in one computer with optional touch capability which they hope will rival that of the HP Touchsmart PC.
“The new Studio One 19 is as nice to look at as it is functional,” said Alex Gruzen, senior vice president of Dell’s Consumer products. “More and more people are making the kitchen the center of their entertainment and computing experience and the Studio One 19 is the ideal system for that need. The Studio One 19 is about lifestyle and design and is very affordable for the family.”
Dell has promised to donate $5 (USD) to the to Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help find a cure for breast cancer.
Dell has promised to donate a minimum of $25,000, but has not set a maximum donation so I guess they will donate as much money as units they sell, which is actually an admiral thing, most companies place a maximum cut off on these types of donations.
Promise Pink is available today in the Inspiron Mini 9 & Mini 12, as well as the Inspiron 1525, Studio 15 & Studio 17, Studio Hybrid, XPS M1330, the XPS M1530 and the Latitude E4200
