Dell Dimension 2400


The Dell Dimension 2400 provides a decent feature set for students at a reasonable price.

Although the limited upgradability of this unit might be too restricting for those with computer-heavy majors, it does make a great buy for students with simple computing needs.

Dell Dimension 2400 System Review


The Dimension 2400 is a budget home/office system based on Intel's i845GV chipset, and houses a Celeron 2.4Ghz processor (in the model we tested) or a Pentium 4 up to 2.8 GHz.

It's unlikely that most small computer stores could put together a system of this quality for an equivalent price, though we would highly recommend you opt for the more powerful Pentium 4 CPU over the sluggish Celeron

Cheaper budget PCs can be had elsewhere, but Dell's Dimension 2400 offers a solid feature set, a strong warranty, and adequate performance.
