    Dell Inspiron One 2305 and Origin Genesis Reviews


    (Page 1 of 2 )

    Looking for a little entertainment? Both of the desktops we'll be reviewing today could suit your needs. The Dell Inspiron One 2305 gives you plenty of connectivity options and Blu-ray for watching DVDs, while the Origin Genesis aims to reach the gamer crowd.

    The Dell Inspiron One 2305 is a highly configurable all-in-one desktop. If you throw in all the bells and whistles, the 2305 combines solid design with excellent entertainment options. The 2305's upgraded configuration sells for $1,149.99, and it comes with a one-year warranty.



    While the Inspiron One 2305 can be had for a base price of $599.99, it will give you a basic configuration.  At that price, you won't get any touch-screen capabilities, a HDMI port, a fast processor and more.  Therefore, for the purpose of this review, we will be working with the 2305's top-flight configuration. This checks in at $1,149.99, which is nearly twice the base price.

    With the elevated price, you get a 2.4 GHz AMD Phenom II X4 610e processor. The processor does have four cores that come in handy for running multiple tasks at the same time, but it gives the 2305 overall performance that lags behind some other all-in-ones on the market. It's not a speed demon, but you can use the 2305 to perform common daily tasks like web surfing, document editing, multimedia viewing, and more. The desktop gets an extra multitasking boost from 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM. Again, keep in mind that these specifications come from configuring the 2305 to its maximum, so you are paying a premium to have them.

    Graphics on the Inspiron One 2305 are supported by a 1 GB ATI Radeon HD 5470 graphics card. This graphics card allows you to play games on the desktop ,as well as HD movies, without problems. For $1,149.99, you also get a 1 TB hard drive, which should be plenty of storage for most users. Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit is the operating system of choice.

    Other features of the 2305 are highlighted by a Blu-ray DVD burner combo drive. The Blu-ray drive is a nice extra to have for when you want to watch the latest in DVD technology. Internet connectivity is provided by integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi. If you need to transfer data quickly with another digital device, there's a card reader on board. You also get a 2.0-megapixel camera and microphone built in for when you want to video chat with others.



    The Inspiron One 2305's all-in-one design is likely its main attraction. The all-in-one design allows those seeking a large-screen computer to have one in their kitchen or office without the need for a space-hogging tower. It's a clean setup, ideal for anyone who needs to save space without sacrificing too much performance. The 23-inch display has a 1,920 x 1,080 full HD resolution that is great for watching movies, playing games, and any other tasks. The display is large enough to see from a distance, making the 2305 a perfect device for a kitchen setting. At the upgraded price, the display also has touch capability. This offers some touch-based applications and games, but seems more like a novelty than something that would be used for primary computing functions.

    Connectivity on the 2305 is solid. When upgraded, you get the media card reader, two USB 2.0 ports, and microphone and headphone jacks on the side panels. The back panel features four more USB ports, an Ethernet port, audio ports, a VGA port, a HDMI port, a SPDIF port, and a port for the TV tuner.

    If you are looking for an all-in-one that provides solid entertainment options, the Dell Inspiron One 2305 may be what you need. Of course, to get the most out of the device you will have to pay over $1,000. At that level, you not only get Blu-ray and a large touch-screen, but also decent enough performance for your other computing tasks.
