Dell Inspiron 660


Dell has been selling mass-produced desktop PCs for years, so you'd think some of this experience might rub off on its low-cost PCs. Alas, with flimsy build quality and a tacky-looking reflective plastic frontage, its Inspiron 660 feels cheap and...

Decent upgradability, but the Dell Inspiron 660 is let down by poor performance

Extremely Upset


No pros

Hardrive died w/in 1 year. No warranty offered. Horrible experience

As advertised - A basic PC


Build quality is OK. Reminds me of the Vostro line. Basic design with a flimsy plastic facade. You will also want to purchase a 16GB USB thumb drive to use to create the "restore disk". No using DVDs anymore (?). I suggest using the Windows restore...

First Celeron PC I have used since the 300a (remember that one? If you don't... Get off my lawn!) Adequately powered for basic tasks. This is a parent PC and is perfectly suited for the task ; Comes with a keyboard and mouse, though they are pretty cheap

As already mentioned expect to uninstall a fair amount of bloatware. Not as bad as other machines I've set up and it was all easy to uninstall. I haven't seen any nagging popups as mentioned by the other reviewer though I uninstalled *everything* that...

Good Deal for Beginners


After four months, this desktop is still going strong. It handles everything from writing reports to watching movies and playing games. I left it on for 2 weeks and it hasn't even slowed down once. I recommend upgrading your keyboard and mouse as the...

Affordable. It is everything you need to get started without having to buy things separately. Comes with a nice 23" LED screen and speakers. Plenty of front and back USB ports for my daily needs. The tower is small and light enough to not take up space

The keyboard and mouse are not very flexible. I keep hitting the sleep button on keyboard. The mouse doesn't have a long enough cord that would allow some distance from the tower ; After the Windows 8.1 update, I had to downgrade my OS to Windows 7

Solid small machine


This machine has been exactly what I wanted, a small silent well performing media pc. The only problem I have is that the Intel video does not support hd audio through hdmi. This is a pain and causes XBMC to not function correctly. If you wont to use...

Small form factor, appealing case design. Low energy, silent operation

The built in Intel HD video does not pass HD audio through the hdmi port

Nice slim system with an attractive price -- thanks Newegg


I just purchased it after my XPS 420 (may have) died on me, and decided to get one. Originally I was planning on creating my own system. Anyway, setup was a breeze, and everything's included. I love the fact that I can upgrade to a higher GHz processor...

Easy to set up, compact, and faster set up

None... as of yet

Consumer review by:

Small, inexpensive, but saddled with Win 8


It's a small, relatively fast machine. If you need an inexpensive machine and can't wait for a slickdeal to roll around, this is a great choice

Machine would not activate Windows 8 over the internet. I had to do a phone activation to get it to work, which is rather annoying. Windows 8 itself is a con... I would have much preferred Windows 7 on there. This was my first experience with Windows...

Decent Computer but lousy keyboard & mouse


I bought this computer at Best Buy to replace an old Sony Vaio computer. The computer runs fast and performs well. There are no camera card ports on it, which is annoying. It does not have enough USB ports in the front or back, which is also annoying....

Fast, good performance

terrible keyboard & mouse

Consumer review by:

Great desktop


Bought primarily for a basic home computer to edit video quickly and efficiently. Also being used as a media server which can store hundreds of videos for viewing from anywhere. The 2TB hard drive has plenty of room for my current needs. Can also...

Great home computer with plenty of storage capacity

Nothing yet, runs very well
