If you keep up with products in the blogosphere, you might already be familiar with the Studio One 19, which is our new all-in-one computer. Darren Gladstone’s article kicked off some discussions when we introduced it in Japan last month. Today, we’re now offering it to customers in the United States and Europe.
Over the weekend, Gizmodo and others reacted to a design-focused video that Lionel featured in a blog post late last week. The Studio One 19 is an all-in-one computer that provides a great shared computing experience for families. As mentioned in an earlier post, the Studio One 19 features a simple and approachable design, with five different color options to easily match any home décor.
The Studio One 19 is no slouch when it comes to performance either. Because it’s built on a desktop chipset and features some desktop hardware like Intel’s Core 2 Duo processors and desktop hard drives. Video performance is solid too with NVIDIA GeForce 9200 graphics and 9400 performance graphics upgrade options.
For more on both the hardware and software behind the Studio One 19, take a look at this video that features Josh Duncan and Angela Blair from Dell’s product team:
Besides design and performance, the optional touch capability is something that stands out. The Studio One 19 is our first desktop to feature a multi-touch option. In case you missed it, here’s the preview of the touch capabilities we shared recently. Now that it’s here, I wanted to share more details about the touch features that the Studio One 19 offers:
- Easy multi-touch photo editing, slideshow creation, playlist compilation, notes, and even web browsing.
- Use Touch Zone to quickly locate touch applications and access media content including photos. Listen to music and create playlist.
- Unleash creativity with You Paint finger painting software.
- Record videos and upload directly to YouTube with the touch of a finger with TouchCam
- Flick to Flickr – Upload photos to Flickr to share with family and friends.
- More cowbell – Use Drum Kit to bang on the drums with the multi-touch percussion center. Lionel said this was a blast.

Update: Dell has also teamed with Cozi to feature the Cozi Family Organizer on the Studio One 19 (both touch and non-touch). Families use Cozi to schedule appointments and activities in the shared family calendar, to track shopping and to do lists, to keep a family journal and to send quick messages and reminders. For example how many times have you asked your teen to stop by the store and pick up a few items on the way home – and they remember half of what you needed? Well, with Cozi you speak their language by sending the grocery list via text directly to their cell phone. Really – Cozi is a simple and intuitive experience that any family member can easily use.
Cozi also offers a couple of extras on the Dell Studio One 19 including:
- Cozi Express – Launches Cozi right from the desktop for immediate access to the family’s calendar, shopping and to do list and other information.
- Cozi Photo Collage Screensaver -Automatically creates and rotates stunning collages from photos stored on the PC, organizes the photos by family events and activities, and displays upcoming appointments from the family calendar.
