Dell Vostro 470


Business systems are often defined not just by how quickly they complete their assigned tasks, but how quickly the systems themselves get to market. For that reason, the Dell Vostro 470 deserves some significant plaudits: This is one of the first...

Up-to-date hardware. Strong performance across applications. Fairly expandable

Default warranty covers only one year

The Dell Vostro 470 delivers fine performance and a robust-enough feature set to be your go-to sub-$1,000 business PC of choice.

Dell Vostro 470


It may look like a basic-black tower desktop, but not all basic-black PCs are created equal. For small businesses buying PCs they'll need to rely upon every day, sometimes the services and policies behind the hardware matter just as much as the box...

Competitive application performance ; Basic black design will not offend ; Toolless chassis

Standard warranty lasts only one year ; Bundled keyboard and mouse are subpar

A simple and functional design, strong performance, and useful support options make the Dell Vostro 470 a good fit for small businesses.

Excellent Gaming Machine


I bought the Alienware X51 R2 on May 29th, and received it earlier then expected delivery. The performance is excellent, and the price wasn't too expensive. The form factor is fantastic, but requires an external power supply, which isn't that much of...

Fantastic, but..


I absolutely love this computer! I splurged a little and got the Extreme Edition, which I would recommend. This thing is powerful for its small size. Just a little bit bigger than a gaming console. Runs every single one of my games on Ultra 1080p...

Great performance, few criticisms


I purchased the Alienware-R2 a couple months ago. Immediately my expectations were exceeded; booting up my games revealed I could cap them out on the highest settings with V-sync capping my FPS at 75, able to significantly above. Specs @ 1440x900p...

Endless problems


A good PC when working.. Unfortunately, this is pretty much never. When this computer works it's not a bad gaming computer. However that is pretty much never. I have had issued with the disk usage being stuck at 100%, the processor usage being stuck at...

Excellent Performance, Abysmal Quality


I bought this about a year and a half ago. Coming from an XPS 17 laptop, the performance was excellent. The only problem was that the system kept eating up graphics cards every few months. I believe it had something to do with the anemic power supply,...

Great PC... If You Want to Keep Buying New PCs


This PC is excellent, but if you ever want to upgrade the graphics card and/or power supply unit, look elsewhere as it is IMPOSSIBLE to do with this system without basically buying a whole new PC. Apparently, you can't even take the motherboard and put...
