Dell XPS 210

 

The XPS 210's performance-test scores are a few notches above the XPS 200's, now that Dell has swapped out the XPS 200's Pentium D processor for a newer 2.4-GHz Core 2 Duo E6600 processor. Like other Core 2 Duo processors, this one runs cooler, yet...

Small. Quiet. XPS priority support line. Included 15-month Internet security subscription. Upgradable. Large hard drive. Core 2 Duo-equipped

Ugly IR remote receiver. Not quite as tiny as other mini PC desktops. Significantly more expensive than its predecessor

Dell upgrades its "entry-level" XPS desktop with a powerful Core 2 Duo processor. It's more of an attractive Media Center PC now, but at a price.

Dell Review

 

Save space and money with the Dell XPS 210 our "TopTenREVIEWS Bronze Award" winning multimedia PC. This Dell PC utilizes a mini tower, yet is packed with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a 256 MB graphic card and a 320 GB hard drive.

In order to truly be a multimedia PC the monitor should be upgraded to the digital and to be better at multitasking, while running Vista, the RAM should be increased to 2GBs. With these upgrades the system totals around $1750.

Since the product is fairly new, less than a month since we ordered it, we'll see how reliable the machine is. We have an older Dell machine and I use one at work and have been extremely pleased with the brand and will continue to purchase Dell...

Our family loves the response of the new XPS210. The jury is still out on the Windows Vista. We'll see how that works out.

The Trend Micro anti-virus software that was ordered with it was not compatible but we were able to download an update and it appears to be working fine now.

Good things come in small packages

 

The tower surprised me being so small....but it sure packs a punch. This is my 7th computer in 20 years and my first DELL I love it. The speed everything is great so far. I believe it will live up to its name. DELL says it all.

XPS systems and windows vista

 

I hope if you are thinking about buying a new computer that you will consider what I bought.. I bought the NEW XPS210 system and it is the greatest of all time!!! I love the graphics on it, the build in camera, mic, and sound, surfing is easy too. I...

I purchased a Dell XPS 210 a few weeks ago. I was surprised how small the tower is but it's great and really compact. I love the 20 inch screen. It looks like you're watching TV when I go to play a movie. I was a little upset at first when I had...

After some adjustments made with vista and my security settings, everything runs smooth. I love it!! Vista is NOT a big bad bear, its great , it just takes some learning if you're willing to learn. NOTHING I can really say as negative on this system....

I love this computer so far, it's fast and it only takes up half the space that my last set-up did.

The only con that I found was that it only had one disc drive!

Small is not necessarily better

 

All things considered, good value. Dell support, up to now, has been excellent. I called twice, and a competent technician answered promptly and was helpful. The drop-down menus that allow one to provide specs do not allow for all options, e.g.,...

1. Because of its relatively small size, you can set this unit on a desk, horizontally or vertically.

1. The small case will not accommodate a second hard drive, nor a zip drive--neither space nor cables.

GREAT SYSTEM

 

Great idea the Dell offered XP in Place of Vista. I didn't have the funds to replace both desk tops and both laptops with Vista so it was GREAT that I could replace the one that went down with another XP system! GOOD GOING DELL!!!! A+++

This system is a great item and replaced another Dell product. Super fast with the options I purchased.

Nothing bad to say about the item. ALL GOOD!

At first glance, you'll be amazed at how remarkably compact the XPS 210 is. But what's really amazing is that this small wonder packs in big-time performance. Plus, the sleek case makes it a stylish addition to your home.
