Pros After about 5 years of ownership this computer still does pretty well. The processor that came on mine was a 2.66 pentium 4, which is still plenty good for in home use, and slight multitasking. Was pretty cheap.
Cons Thought there was a virus on it because it was rediculously slow. Then i checked the specs and found out it only came with 128mb of ram, cheap to upgrade though. Hard drive was also pretty small, 40gb.
Summary For a relatively cheap setup this dell is put together well and a good value. Make sure to upgrade ram at the very least.
Pros Dell is Dell. Cheap but reliable.
Cons not the top of the line MB. Requires some drivers updates.
Needs a new VGA if you want to run any dissent games. RAM is limited by 2 slots 512 max in each.
Summary If you are a gamer or a programmer, this is not for you. If all you do is type letters and brows internet porn, then this system will work just fine.
Pros 1. Runs Well for about 4 years
2. Hard drive size good for its age
3. Serves its time well!
Cons 1. Very slow
2. freezes often
3. Internet always acts slow on this computer!
Summary Good computer in general, but as it ages it really slows down more and more!
Cannot run programs such as MIcrosoft Flight Sim X or Sony Vegas
Pros avalible upgrades
Cons intigrated graphics and sound
Summary My Dell Dimension 2400, that im currently using has an Intel Celeron CPU, and i came with 128MB of RAM. It needed some updating. Now it has 1.12GB of RAM, and now A DVD burner. i plan on replacing its motherboard in the future...
Pros Endured the test of time
Cons No PCI-e, AGP
Summary I paid roughly $550 for this in early 2003, and I am able to run Windows vista with her now. I have maxed her out with a Nvidia GeForce 5500FX PCI video card and 2 GBs of RAM memory. Without the upgrades, She might seem obsolete--but that's not the case because many things have not needed an upgrade.
To name a few, the unfailing power of Her harddrive (seagate's st380011a) has trooped through all hell and high water. Or the 250 watt PSU which has never been turned off since late 2007..When alls said and done,
She has endured the test of time!
