Dell pushes 'family friendly' low-cost All-in-One Inspiron 20 3000 (hands-on)

 

Dell adds a new entry-level all-in-one to its line up with the Pentium-powered Inspiron 20 3000.

Dell Inspiron 20 3000 review

 

Dell: All-in-one and one for all!

Affordable all-in-one ; Tap-tastic touchscreen

Bound by battery cord ; Weak internal components

It's likely not a good pick for a primary setup – as the hardware is slightly on the weaker side – but for parents looking for an entry-level computer for the home, the Inspiron 20 may be the answer.

Great service

 

Simple from start of ordering, and fast delivery, and quick setup on machine for user like me ( almost plug and play; except to normal software registeration ).

Expected More!

 

Hard to believe that using pin tabs on Google slows down a brand new computer like this one. Really need to be able to provide a better quality product! Might just be my last Dell. . .

Very responsive

 

The PC is very response but suggest if buying you opt for 8 megs of memory from the start. 4 is not quite enough for this system, but was able to order an additional 4 pretty cheap.
