Dell Studio 14 Revealed

Sure, it isn't exactly as exciting as the teased 'Adamo' laptop, but Dell's Studio 14 laptop is still worth a look. Revealed, oddly enough, on Dell's Malaysian site, the system sits, oddly enough, between the 15.4in Studio 15 and forthcoming 13.3in Studio XPS 13.

Spec wise there is, as usual for Dell, a range of customisation options. CPUs start from a 2.1GHz Core 2 Duo T8100 and span up to the 2.6GHz T9500, up to 4GB of RAM can be fitted and graphics power comes courteously either an integrated Intel X3100 GMA or dedicated ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450. That 14.1in screen packs a 1,280 x 800 resolution panel, which is disappointing but on par with rival systems, such as the Samsung X460. On the plus side, it is at least LED-backlit.

As with other laptops in its Studio range, Dell allows a range of colour options, including "Jet Black," "Flamingo Pink" and even "Tangerine Orange." The base spec system is listed as 3,599RM (~£700) which seems pretty reasonable and even a decently specced machine will probably be hard pushed to exceed the £1,000 mark.

While it is possible that the Studio 14 could be a Malaysian exclusive option, that seems highly unlikely. Expect an update to Dell's UK site any time soon.

Waiting till January to buy a new laptop and a Studio XPS 13 would really interest me too. The only thing wrong with the Studio 15 is the size IMHO.

i really hope dell focus a bit more on a quality fit and finish with their new laptops next year. i like the current studio and xps ranges but ive always felt they just appear cheap in construction. i have an xps m1710 right now but i want something a bit more portable, lets hope the studio 14 or xps 13 live up to it!

My aging XPS Gen 2 laptop has caused me one strangulated hernia too many so I'll probably be making the plunge for a new workstation next year. The client I'm working for has a bunch of Dell Precision and Latitude machines and they have excellent build quality- the customer service from Dell also makes HP look like the bloody Keystone cops.





One of the machines that they have is a quad core M6400, the PSU is big enough to make people's fillings spark at ten paces.
