Dell has launched the Studio One 19, an all-in-one desktop system boasting multi-touch screen functionality.

As an all-in-one, the whole PC is integrated into its 18.5-inch display as a single unit, making it a good choice for the minimalist and space-conscious among you.

Of course we all like things that look pretty, and Dell hasn't forgotten about style in the making of the Studio One 19 either. You'll be able to choose from a number of colours including solid pure white, tuscan red, navy blue, powder pink and charcoal to adorn the edges of your screen.

As for specs, you'll be able to configure your system with Intel Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processors, up to 4GB of RAM and up to 750GB hard-drive. For graphics, there will be a choice of Nvidia GeForce 9200 or GeForce 9400 integrated graphics.

You'll also get a 7-in-1 media card reader, six USB ports, web cam and optional Blu-ray to replace the regular DVD burner.

Of course, the most interesting of the desktop's specs is the optional multi-touch screen.

Special software for those opting for it will allow for multi-touch photo-editing, slideshow creation, playlist compilation, notes and even web-browsing.

You'll be able to record and upload videos directly to YouTube with the touch of a finger, as well as play around on specially created software like You Paint finger painting and the multi-touch percussion centre.

The Studio One 19 desktop will be available from 19 March in Japan with a launch in other countries expected later in the spring. The starting price for the Studio One 19 in the US will be $699, but no UK pricing has been announced as yet.
