Dell has launched its new line of colorful Studio Hybrid desktop PC that's meant to fit anywhere in the home, packing a small footprint, high-def video, and price tags starting at $499

The company officially introduced on Tuesday an ultra-small desktop that the company says is 80 percent smaller than standard minitower desktops. It also uses 70 percent less power than a typical desktop.

The Studio Hybrid will be available in six jewel-like colors (emerald, quartz, ruby, sapphire, slate, and topaz) plus bamboo.

The Hybrid will run Intel's Pentium dual-core and Core 2 Duo processors, and support up to 4GB of RAM and up to 320GB of hard drive storage.

It will also include five USB 2.0 ports, one IEEE 1394 (FireWire) port, either an 8? DVD±RW drive or 6x Blu-ray/DVD/CD combo drive (both slot-loading), optional 802.11n Wi-Fi, and gigabit Ethernet. The Hybrids will feature HDMI and DVI output, S/PDIF audio output, and an optional TV tuner. The systems will run Intel GMA X3100 graphics. It will come preloaded with the Windows Vista OS.

Priced starting at $499, Dell will first sell the desktop through its Web site ...although by the time customers trick one out with a 320 GB drive, 4 GB of RAM, a Blu-ray drive, and a 2.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, the price rapidly climbs above $1,500.. With a monitor, prices will start at $689.
