CES 2011: Dell's Press Conference Announcing the Dell Streak 7, Venue Phone, and Other New Hardware

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Events" @ 04:00 PM

For full-screen viewing, click click on the video above and watch it on YouTube.

This is a video shot in Las Vegas at CES 2011, the Consumer Electronics Show. This is the first time the Dell Streak 7 has been officially unveiled, along with the Dell Venue, and the un-named 10 inch tablet. Other announced hardware includes a 3D version of the XPS 17 laptop, a new Alienware Aurora desktop PC, a new XPS 8300 desktop PC, and a few other odds and ends. The press conference was almost an hour long, so I tried to include only the interesting parts. Enjoy!

Dell Tempts with the XPS 435

"The XPS 435 can be found on Dell's website, a quick glance at the specs shows that it is indeed a top of the line PC: Core i7 Extreme, powerful graphics, optional Blu-Ray drive, up to 24GB of RAM and up to 4.5TB of hard drive space makes it a powerhouse."

I can accept the choice of the Core i7 Extreme; it's just about the fastest thing out there short of using liquid nitrogen. I can see someone using 4.5TB of hard drive space as my own storage farm is close to the same. A slick Radeon HD4870 GPU is also a good choice and it'll even handle Crysis, mostly. But I'm trying to wrap my head around why someone, short of server uses or editing really, really high resolution photos, would need 24GB of RAM. But this is supposed to be Dell's premium, top of the line, showcase PC, so why not? It looks slick, and has some thoughtful features like a set of three USB ports, media card reader and inset tray on top of the case for easy access. The only thing they haven't shown is the princely sum you'll need to pay for a computer that can probably run more than 6 copies of World of Warcraft at the same time.
