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...

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...

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 580s review: This Dell computer can easily handle word processing and Web browsing

 

The Dell Inspiron 580s is a good desktop PC for anyone after a simple computer for basic home use. It's not suitable if you want to play 3D games or store a large amount of multimedia content, but it should handle other home computing tasks with ease.

Good CPU and RAM for a basic machine, stylish and compact design

Mediocre graphics card and hard drive speed, limited scope for upgrades

Consumer review by:

Real workhorse for everyday use.

 

I have purchased 10 or more of this product line, including a number for small businesses on a budget. It is very customizable at Dell Online; important for client price point and desired performance level. I like the unit so much I put 2 in my home:...

Small for factor; customizable online to get exactly what you want; good speed, graphics, runs quiet and not heat issues

Not good for high end gaming. Intended for everyday computing needs of the home and small business. The graphics card and processors offered don't seem intended for higher end use. In the Dell line the XPS line would cater to high end use

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

I resold this to an elderly woman that wanted a new computer to browse the Internet, check her email, and watch an occasional video. For those purposes it works well. It wouldn't be a terrible machine for a media center since it has a HDMI out and...
