Dell is thinking small with the launch of the Inspiron Zino HD. It's a mini desktop PC that measures just 197x197mm.

The tiny PC has a choice of seven interchangeable coloured lids and three patterned ones. Dell believes customers increasingly want to personalise their home technology and perhaps even choose a colour scheme to match their decor. The Piano Black lid is included in the price, while extra lids are priced at £20 each.

Powered by an AMD Athlon processor, the Dell Inspiron Zino HD runs Microsoft Windows 7, and comes with up to 8GB of RAM.

Depending upon your storage needs the PC comes with a hard disk drive that ranges in size from 160GB to 1TB.

The Dell Insprion Zino HD also features an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 graphics processor, two USB 2.0 connectors, a headphone jack and a four-in-one memory card reader

Dell includes an HDMI port so users can enjoy content stored on the device on a HD display. An optional Blu-Rray drive is also available for the PC.

The Dell Inspiron Zino HD is priced from £299 and available now.
