(Page 1 of 4 )
Today we'll be looking at budget desktops. If you have just under $550 to spend, you might be interested in either the Dell Inspiron i545-1125NBK or the Gateway DX4831-01e. Though similar in price, you'll find quite a difference between these two in performance. Let's take a closer look.
Dell Inspiron i545-1125NBK desktop
The Dell Inspiron i545-1125NBK is a standard desktop offered in retail stores at a fixed configuration. Its performance and features are on the common and unimpressive side, making the i545-1125NBK an underwhelming purchase. You can find the i545-1125NBK available for around $530, and it comes with a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
The Inspiron i545-1125NBK comes with a 2.7 GHz Intel Pentium E5400 processor with 2 MB of L2 cache. While it is a dual-core processor, it is not on par with the newer i3 processor found on some competing desktops that provides much better performance. As it stands, the E5400 processor does make the Inspiron i545-1125NBK a sufficient performer when it comes to everyday tasks such as Internet browsing, checking email, document editing, and the like.
If you want to complete more intensive tasks like photo editing, you may want something with a more advanced processor. The dual-core processor does allow you to run multiple applications at once, and the desktop also has 6 GB of DDR2 SDRAM to help with multitasking as well.
A good amount of storage is available with the i545-1125NBK's 640 GB hard drive. Graphics support comes in the form of an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 card. For the operating system, you get Microsoft Windows Home 7 Premium Edition 64-bit.
