Dell Inspiron 530
Advantages: Reliable, Fair amount of processing given it's age
Disadvantages: Hefty desktop, can get over run if you try to run too much complex software, poor graphics card
Had this for a good number of years, until i needed a laptop for university, so gave it too my brother when his computer died, and he still uses it now and works fine.
Processing/Quality >>>> The machine looks okay and features handy little flaps to cover up CD/DVD drives, and the 2 frontal USB ports and audio jacks. Which keep it looking smart under your desk.Had no issues hardware wide through its 6/7 year existence, added a new graphics card to enable it to be able to play some games, but that's about all the adjustments I've made.
Okay, it's not the fastest machine you'll ever use, but it does the job, and it does it relatively well as well. Never really got bogged down and could and can handle all the basic software with ease.
Reliability >>>> Touched on this earlier, but to reinforce, no issues, at all, for 7 years and counting. If you aren't a tech savvy person, this is the computer you need to purchase.
Ease of use >>>> Incredibly easy to set up, features all the ports you need daily access to on the front, (4 USB ports, audio) so you don't have to ever have to gain access to the back of the machine once set up. Once plugged in and set up and given daily use, never had to ever move it. (apart from graphic card installation, which was very easy to carry out, quick and easy access to the inside of the machine)
Features >>>> Given the age of this, it does lack on the features front, and you won't impress with Blu-ray players etc. But maybe you could with all the money you'll save, because they'll be plenty of that going spare.
Overall >>>> Perfect computer for someone, who want's a maintenance free, adequately equipped reliable home computer, without breaking the bank. 8/10
(See my other reviews if your interested in purchasing a new mouse, or computer speakers to accompany your new computer)
Summary: Perfect for the average user, still used at the moment and runs fine.
