Pros Very upgradable.
Cons none. I can't find any cons, only pros.
Summary You can't go wrong with this one.
Pros Fast, Good screen, Nice size hard drive
Cons There is nothing I don't like about this product
Summary The screen is the biggest I have ever seen
Pros It has a long warranty.
Cons This machine has been out of commission more than any other of the 24+ computers I have had. I have four other computers in the office, some on Vista, some on XP and never have problems with Vista related issues, but Dell blames them for everything.
Summary The warranty is useless. I have had almost everything in the computer replace and recently lost two weeks' work once again because during a tech support call, my machine quit booting, even from CD. They are once again replacing more parts, once again (the fourth time in the year I've had the computer) I will have to totally restore all my data and of course there is always something I can't find. Their tech support puts you on hold all the time, doesn't understand English.
Pros by paying a little extra I got windows xp pre-installed along with vista.
Cons noisy and some other problems
Summary very noisy computer fan. never used one from any brand that's as noisy as this one. when it starts is like a plane taking off then it subsides to a humming noise that can be clearly heard 15 feet away. imagine when you're next to it. called dell customer service which is located in india, they were really nice but made me open up the case to try and determine which was the problem. it seemed that accepting to do that was the only way of getting them to help me. they said it is the exhaust fan that cools the power supply and will send a replacwement along with a technician, thank god!, that will install it. I went trough a very unsettling process when I was asked to open up the tower case and do this and that inside it, I'm not qualified as a compter techbician. what if I'd broken something when disconnecting an reconnecting wires??? or if by mistake touched soemthing that will give me an electric shock???
when I put it vertical and popped in a cd, it didn't read it but got "stuck" making terrible noises. I took it out and replaced it and then it worked. Same thing hapened when I laid it horizontal. :et's see what the technicina hhas to say when he comes.

Pros easy to use
Cons Worst service that I ever experienced. Dell masters the way to exercise patience.
Summary There are other machines as good as the 530 where you will receive service and attention. Would not recommend this company.
