In Depth

Dell Inspiron One 2320 is powered by Intel’s 2nd Generation Core i5-2400S processor, which is clocked at default 2.5 GHz speed. For memory it has 6 gigs of RAM(4GBx1 and 2GBx1), 1TB HDD Native Command Queuing which having a speed of 7200RPM which is practically quite good. For graphics the device has Intel’s onboard graphics HD 2000 which does prominent work but yes it is not meant for the one want to play heavy HD games on it. It has a Blu Ray(Optional or DVD) drive which is essential in every desktop. In terms of connectivity it has Bluetooth v3.0, Ethernet and WiFi 802.11/n. It has a genuine Windows 7 Home Premium Edition(64 Bit). Windows 7 interface works good with the touch input but there are some places where we have to use other input devices, but this issue will resolve after upgrading the device to Windows 8 in future because it will be more touch friendly. Now comes to its screen responsiveness, it is very responsive in fact it looks like capacitive touch panel, once it calibrate properly it doesn’t show any lag in terms of responsiveness and accuracy. Dell also provides a remote control, which makes this a media centre, there are plenty of softwares bundled with this device that makes it more powerful and useful. Keyboard and mouse are also a boon in the package, although pause, num lock, and scroll lock keys are not available in this keyboard but still it has all the remaining keys settled in a manner calibrate with the human fingers, it also has some media keys too. Now comes the performance part, Intel i5(2nd gen.) processes nicely without any glitches, multitasking is also pretty fair due to its volatile memory of 6 gigs. But remember it doesn’t perform tasks continuously for long time because it doesn’t have high cooling solutions in it as compared with nowadays desktops. Device is not able to produce such high graphics because it doesn’t have a dedicated graphics processor by default but yes for playing normal games and watching HD movies device does a fair job and however its upgraded model comes with a 1 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT525M. Display is HD so graphics on it are impressive, viewing angles are fair, color production is nice and combination of brightness and contrast is pretty good. Overall performance is quite nice as an All in One.
