Currently not a lot of information is available about the new Dimension C521 and E521 desktops powered by AMD Athlon 64, AMD Athlon 64 X2 or AMD Sempron processors, but Dell promised to unveil more details when it starts to sell the systems on the 13th of September, 2006.

What is known, however, is that each desktop ships standard with Microsoft Windows XP Media Center, and offers a choice of configurations and sizes that can be customized to run nearly any multimedia application, according to Dell. The systems will include add-in card based on ATI Radeon or Nvidia GeForce graphics processors, built-in 7.1 audio as well as optional TV-tuners and other upgrade options.

Pricing will vary depending on configuration, systems will be available worldwide.
