Dell has rolled out a colorful series of small form-factor PCs, the Inspiron Zino HD, which brings Windows-based competition to Apple's Mac mini. The new nettop measures 7.8" x 7.8" x 3.4", weighs 3.53lbs and offers a bit more muscle than your average Atom-based machine.

The Inspiron Zino HD houses a 1.6GHz AMD Athlon 2650E processor (up to 1.8GHz AMD X2), Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics (or Radeon HD 4330 512MB), 2GB of DDR2 800MHz RAM (up to 8GB), a 320GB 7200RPM HDD (up to 1TB), a DVD burner (or Blu-ray drive), and Windows 7 Home Premium (or Professional) X64. Other specifications include 802.11n Wi-Fi, four USB ports, an eSATA port, a headphone jack, a four-in-one memory card reader, and VGA as well as HDMI-out.

Dell's mini desktop is currently listed on the company's Ireland site, and doesn't appear to be available in the US just yet. Prices start at 329 euros and climbs up to about 950 euros with maxed out hardware.
