At Tech Day yesterday, we launched 4 Dimension systems. All four of these systems (Dimension E520, C521, E521, and XPS 210) are meant for customers who want to do more than send emails or surf the web. All are good options for consumer and small business customers interested in multimedia like digital music, photos, or videos, or watching and recording live TV via media center.
The C521 and E521 represent the first AMD-based consumer systems we’ve ever offered. If you want the details before watching the video, here’s how processor support breaks out:
- Dimension C521: Sempron, AMD Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors
- Dimension E521: Sempron, AMD Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors
What’s the difference between the two AMD systems? Mainly form factor—the C521 features a chassis that’s nearly half the size of it’s bigger brother, the E521.
What this boils down to is that we announced two AMD-based options for customers and two Intel-based options. Our consumer and small business customers now have a choice. All four of these systems will be available worldwide today.
In the vlog below, Ketan Pandya from the desktop team gives you an overview of all four of these.
