The Dell Inspiron 518 is a great home office computer.

  • Excerpt: The Dell Inspiron 518 is a great home office computer. I have never had any problems from the system. I have had several Dell computers, because I like to upgrade my system often if possible. I am a web designer and graphics designer. I have used other brands of computers, but none have been as good as the Dell systems that I have had. There are minor problems at times, but Dell usually provides an outstanding product.

  • Excerpt: I received my new Dell Inspirion 518 desktop computer March 12, 2009. My old computer was a Dell also. I had always had very good luck with it, but after all it was seven years old so I was due for a new one. I was very impressed from day one with my new Dell. It took me a while to get used to the new Vista, but now that I have I find I like it much better. My new Dell is so much faster. The web pages open so much  faster and downloads are much faster too.

Vista was a very poor choice

  • Excerpt: This was a brand new computer that was given to me as a gift. Dell rocks but this Vista program sucks. Because it was given as a gift I had no input on the software or the hardware. Vista is not compatible with some files I had made in Windows 2007. Most people do not have Vista therefore they can't read the files I have made on this computer. I also would have liked it to also have had an  A drive, floppy, besides the CD drive.

Mediocre Desktop At a Good Price

  • Excerpt: I have had a Dell Inspiron 518 since April of the year 2008. I originally bought it to play some low-middle level PC games such as the popular Counter-Strike Series including Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter Strike: Source and it ran both to a playable point. The problem was with Counter-Strike:Source. It was not a enormous issue but I did experience generally slow loading times and a mediocre FPS while in-game. With that aside - this is not a gaming computer.
