Dell has announced a pair of touch-screen-enabled systems – one desktop and one notebook – that will utilise Microsoft's Windows 7 Touch platform.
The company said the desktop model, dubbed the Inspirion One 19, would be an all-in-one system. As its name suggests, the system will feature a 19in screen, and should have a starting price of £499.
The notebook system will be known as the Studio 17 and is the first notebook from Dell to offer a touch-screen interface. The company did not reveal a starting price for the 17.3in device, but the system is expected to be available for purchase later this month.
Dell said that it was primarily looking to target the new systems at the home market, where it believes the touch features will prove particularly popular.
"Touch-screen makes computing easy and fun for all ages,” said David Clifton, director of consumer marketing for Dell Europe.
"And both products perform as well as being stylish, so they can handle the common tasks we all use at home every day."
