This computer will be one of the very few that you can still find with windows 7 loaded on to it. The computer itself is made from quality parts with the exception of one part: the power supply. Because this is a slimline machine, you can not replace the power supply easily. Desktops have two very commonly failing parts: the hard drive, and the power supply. A standard power supply does not work though. You must buy the power supply model that comes with this machine. That makes it a bit of a pain.

The machine itself though is still worthy of five stars, because it's form factor is only something a potential buyer should be aware of. It isn't indicative of this computers worthiness.

The machine has two USB ports on the front which are handy and easy to get to. I also love the fact that they put a full cd drive into this slimline. A lot of times they put notebook drives into slimlines that fail easily.

Other than that, it's an excellent machine. It comes with a mouse, keyboard, and a standard power cord.

I was looking for a desktop to connect to the new smart tv that i bought. After searching the web, this computer met all my criterions: has a hdmi output, which i can connect it to my tv, a windows7 os (I haven't heard anything good about windows8), reasonably fast, 2.7GHz, and price under $500, since I only use this desktop for entertainment purpose.
The frustrating part was after receiving the computer, brand new condition, the computer could not boot up. the exact message on the screen was PXE-E61: media test failure. After doing some digging on the internet, it seems like other people had similar problems as well. Bottom line, before every product reaches to the customers, it should have been thoroughly tested, if people from dell have at least started the computer, they would have seen the problem themselves.
However, after going to the store, getting it replaced, i do have to admit for a desktop under 300 bucks(i didn't buy this desktop from amazon), the computer works great! no glitches, no black/blue screen, but this is only my 1st day using the computer, hopefully it continues to work like this in the future.

Wasn't looking for all the bells and whistles, just something to transfer all my data from other older XP computers and still be able to use (mainly for my kids school work). Runs great and now we can retire our 10 year old HP. I was surprised to find it had a wireless network card included and was able to hook up to our Wi-Fi. I did not expect that and it was a welcome surprise considering there was no mention of one in the description. Great buy for the money and hopefully this will last just as long.

Had a 13 year old Compaq with XP that I loved & babied until the memory, even with 2 upgrades slowed everything down then they pulled the plug on XP, so I bit the bullet and got a Dell with Windows 7. Took me a couple days of comparison shopping on Amazon from so many choices & finally narrowed it down to this one. Best move I made. I'm very happy with the purchase; price didn't break the bank & for what I do: internet surf, E-Bay buy & sell, read newspapers & amateur Photo Shop,it does everything I want. There were some remarks in other evals that programs used on XP may not be compatible with 7. Not so as long as you have the original program disc as I did. Just be sure your registry is completely clear & they all took. After X-ferring data via flash drive from old PC to new, the registry was jammed with errors. Clean this up an everything was accepted including some old programs dating from the 90's & company's long gone. The case is a little plastic, the included keyboard cheap but functional, the vendor unknown, but everything arrived in well packaged good shape 3 days after ordering. It was easy to set up even for me, a 74 year old curmudgeon who is computer self taught by trial & error. There are some features in XP that I feel were easier to navigate than 7 but eventually I'll figure out a way to beat them. (Also lotsa useless bells & whistles for the "electronic herd", I just ignore generation Y)

It was necessary to replace my Dell Windows XP with a general purpose PC for web browsing, general office task and various media attributes. The new computer must be a Dell, operating in Windows 7, powerful, light weight, stylish and should come equipped with a HDMI output for connecting to a tv set.. Purchasing the Dell Inspiron 3000s desktop met all of the above and more. The older Dell Windows XP, which I operated for 6 years, fell short in its capabilities in comparison to the new Dell. What a joy as I become more attuned to the many assets embedded within my new system. I`d gladly recommend the Dell Inspiron 3000s Intel to others.

Purchased for a friend. I set it up and she was very happy. Replaced her Dell XP machine. Great computer for documents and email. Definitely not for graphic intensive games. Solid and well built.

We really are more convinced than ever regarding the quality and excellence of Dell products. It was so simple to put it into service.

Does everything my elderly mother needs. Especially good that it came with Windows 7 not 8. Also it wasn't as ladled up with promos and offers as other brands. Wasn't hard to de-crapify.

I bought this for my Mom, who will use it for email, writing and some web browsing. The machine is as advertised. Plenty of speed and memory for her use, and plenty of USB ports. Having Windows 7 instead of 8 is a major advantage.
