Dell Inspiron 580s


The Dell Inspiron 580s ($529, as of April 20, 2010) is in many ways a typical budget PC. Its main points of differentiation are a chassis that is slimmer than most in its category and generally strong performance for the price.

Strong general performance ; Slim, attractive case

Lackluster storage capacity ; Poor expansion options

Storage space is lacking, and the case leaves much to be desired, but you can't argue with the performance or the price.

Dell Inspiron 580s


Inside, the system is well laid out, if a little cramped (as is expected). The system has room for one PCI card, two PCIe x1 cards, and a PCIe x16 graphics card. Because of the SFF form factor, these all need to be half-height cards, but the fact that...

Compact and quiet. No bloatware. 15-month subscription to MacAfee Internet Security. Fast core i3 processor. HDMI port. Some expandability

320GB hard drive. Weak 3D performance. No eSATA or FireWire port. Could use wireless connection

The Dell Inspiron 580s a good upgrade for people using 4- or 5-year-old desktop PCs, particularly if they're still using an older Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 processor. It's a compact PC for the person performing everyday light to moderate multimedia tasks.

Dell Inspiron 580s Review


High-end Alienware rigs are nice, but they're not where the Round Rock computer giant makes all of its money.

Attractive ; Solid performance ; Highly expandable

Weirdly tall

Dell isn't the first computer manufacturer to offer an attractive-yet-capable slim form factor desktop, but that certainly doesn't mean their efforts should be discounted. Taking advantage of new processor and graphics technologies from Intel and...

Dell Inspiron 580


This is an ideal home computer if you are looking for basic features.

This home computer has a slim and attractive appearance

This computing device has a poor graphics card for serious gamers

The Dell Inspiron 580 is not the most advanced home computing device on the market today. However, it does offer the features that will fit the needs of many home computer users. Dell designed a high-performance product; it just lacks a few desirable...

Dell Inspiron 580 Desktop PC


Dell's Inspiron series of laptops and desktop PCs, that target mainly home and SOHO users, are very different from the high-end and gaming rigs. However, if you look at the performance of some of them, they offer very good value for money. A fine...

Hope the next one is better!


I have done business with Newegg in the past and have been pleased. I hope this is just a one-time experience, and I look forward to the replacement computer being of better quality. My consultant had recommended a refurbished computer because he felt...

Price and features

I had high expectations for this refurbished computer, based on the recommendations of my computer consultant. He got it hooked up, data transferred, and left. Next morning, I discovered that it had refreshed, but then did not reboot. Nothing I did...

It has been the best computer I have had yet. Fastest boot to the desktop I have ever seen. There is no way you can be dissatisfied with 6GB of RAM and a 750 GB hard drive for that kind of money. Good price even better computer

Intel graphics is ok. Im going to upgrade which wont cost much so it really isnt much of a con. Only thing I could think of
