Dell Inspiron 580s


The Dell Inspiron 580s is a very good compact system for the home user, with enough power to work on light to moderate multimedia tasks.

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.

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 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...

Dell Inspiron 580


The product has difficulty keeping internet connection, dropping out regularly or just stalling for several minutes before continuing. It is also quite slow updating screens on the internet. I regret not buying another HP PC.

Dell Inspiron 580


This product was quite easy to set up, is very comprehensive in content and being Dell is excellent quality for the price.

I have only had the machine for a relatively short while and have had no problems with it to date.

Dell Inspiron 580


So simple to set up, it's a smart unit and compared to the Dell offers I looked at it wasquite reasonable in price. It replaces a Dell System that I've had for 8 years. If the Inspiron gives me the same reliability as that I will be well satisfied....

None so far but I haven't used it much up tp press. I'll have to come back to you later
