Dell Inspiron 560 desktop PC


Dell's Inspiron 560 is one of the company's cheapest desktop PCs. The configuration we tested comes with very basic specifications, but includes a 18....

Acceptable power for basic computing tasks like word processing and Web browsing, four case colour options

The Inspiron 580 is more powerful at only slightly more expensive, only powerful enough for basic computing and media playback

The Dell Inspiron 560 would be reasonably well suited to a family or user that only has the most basic computing needs. It's significantly less powerful than other models in the Dell Inspiron lineup despite only costing a little less. Basic users will...

The slim profile made it ideal for use behind a cash wrap, set up horiziontally just over the cash drawer. I bought two originally, and both computers performed flawlessly for over two years without a single hardware failure

I was limited in my upgrade options, and the PCI express port was set on a far end, the wrong side for a dual-bay graphics card with an extra fan bay. It should have been set up in the middle, with a spot on either end

This Pc is Ok in its stock form.. Ive maxed out mine its one hell of a machine. Upgrades are always good ;] Maxed the ram... Upgraded Video Card added a 250 gig external HD and this is a great PC. Great for a starter or a family PC

Came with Vista... This hardly ran vista... Vista is crap anyways

Overall is a very good product.


Finaly there is a product that is not only called desktop, but really is a desktop. Not bad combination of price and features. However, replacing DVD recorder with universal drive that would allow to use CD and DVD would definately make it better...

It is compact and can be used as a really DESKTOP

Universal DVD/CD reader writer would be an asset. A bit noisy

Consumer review by:

Easy to use


Love the new Dell. I will admit it takes some adjustment to learn Windows 8 but alas, it is possible and not so difficult. Great features included in computer.
