That's really not too awful.

I really don't like the all-in-one PC myself, except maybe for very specific purposes, but to each their own.

If I could find some decent recipe software, this would be a very nice solution for chef in a kitchen. Especially when it comes to baking =\
 
Like they say "Birds of a feather flock together"

1) ill never buy any crappy Dell
2) I'll never buy a computer at crappy Wallmart!!!!

At least they put all the shit together :p

Yeah its a nice price for what it is.... but won't last for long (1 year)because of the crappy parts used by Dell to save money

I am pretty sure i remember seeing one of those at my tech school over a year ago, airman brought it to the lobby of my dorm and played L4D on it, I was like what is that ????

I am not sure, however if it was exactly same computer tho, but I'm pretty sure it was dell.

Anyone see what OS this runs?, I would assume Win7- but what version? It looks like a good PC for the older / plug n play crowd.

[citation][nom]mr_tuel[/nom]Good price, but will it last 2-3 years?[/citation]

Most dells hold up beyond 3 years. Sure they aren't bulletproof but what is. I'd take a dell any day over an acer and especially over an asus. Best laptop brands are dell, toshiba, apple, fujitsu, ibm. toshiba and apple have the lowest defect/return rate.

For basic use (surfing, e-mail, YouTube, etc) it will last a good while, the CPU is not the fastest but I have slower comps with less CPU, RAM power still going strong. You don't need a super system for web surfing or checking facebook, a basic comp like this will do fine.

[citation][nom]tayb[/nom]Not a bad deal really for an all in one.[/citation]

Not bad, but not good. a Mac Mini and a cheap 19" monitor can be had for about $700 ($740 with a RAM upgrade), and that comes with a decent processor (a bit slower, but at least it has VT), a much better GPU, better expandability, faster RAM, and higher resolution, and it runs OS X and Windows.

Step up $500, and you get a 3GHz iMac, 21.5 vs 18.5", better resolution, better GPU, Better WiFi, bluetooth, much greater expandability, wireless components (kbd/mouse), better speakers, lower power draw, cheaper extended warranty, a free copy of Parallels 5, and more. A Dell with an intel GMA GPU might last a year or two before it's completely useless on the modern Internet, and from day 1 it can't do HD video and can't support dual displays, where an iMac should last 3-5 years easy, and resell later for 1/3rd its value or more. At least on the Mini or an iMac you can play WoW...

I don;t know if he's so concerned with component failure as "will it be SUEFUL" in 2-3 years. With a GMA GPU, slow RAM, no VT support, no external monitor port, it's not looking good...

Basic users today are expecting Hulu to work, Netflix, Flash videos, online games, and more. An intel GMA GPU that can't handle 1080p video is gonna piss off a lot of consumers...
