Two older Dell Dimension models. Right: Dell Dimension 4500; left: Dell Dimension XPS D266.

The Dell Dimension series of computers is a line of home and business workstations manufactured by Dell. As of June 26, 2007, Dell replaced the low-end Dimension with the Inspiron line of desktop computers, but it later offered higher-end consumer machines under the Studio line in 2008. The Dimension series is now sold to non-American markets. The last of the high-end Dimensions were the 9200 and 9200c, respectively XPS 410 and XPS 210 in the American market. The E520/1 and their "C" models no longer exist, and are now part of the Inspiron line, which was previously only a laptop line, under the names Inspiron 530/1 (S) with a new case design.[1][2]
