Summary: Cannot comment on this as though it were a brand new product, since I purchased it used (i.e., defective) from "quintard sales" here on Amazon. I can, however, offer feedback about the details of that ordeal in hopes of saving someone else a similar headache. This unit was clearly defective, despite it being advertised as "Used, Like New." On first bootup, WndwsError msg came up stating that it hadn't been shut down properly (prior to my even receiving it).
Summary: I was looking for another Dell 570 computer as I already had one( Which I had to give to my wife). I was so impressed with the performance of this machine I just had to find another. But that wasn't easy as others probably realized the same thing I did( That the 570 is a great machine). Fortunately Amazon had several good used ones. This machines works very well and came with everything including the original box and documentation.
Summary: I don't care what anyone says AMD processors bloody fly! Due to my past career in technology and operations I have probably purchased over 1000 computers in the last five to eight years and multiples of that number in the last 20 years. all PCs. The vast majority of them have been Intel processors. I have to tell you I have always felt a little disappointed with the Intel machines.
Summary: Bought this on clearance from Walmart for 225 dollars! With Windows 7 and the AMD processor this was a steal! Reviews were mediocre at a higher price of 599 but otherwise good. This is an upgrade for me and I will be installing Ubuntu 12.10 or Linux Mint to run side by side with the Windows OS. Nice LED monitor with good sound card built on the motherboard. Not too easy to find as it is being phased out.
The Dell Inspiron 570MT is very fast, reliable, and easy to use.

Excerpt: I have used a Dell for nearly 6 years, and had run out of hard drive for my programs since it only had 40G of hard drive total. I also wanted Windows 7, and after pricing desktops at several stores and online and also from my computer repair shop locally, I chose the Dell Inspiron 570 from dell.com. Dell offered the most for the money. This computer has a Terabyte of hard drive and 6GB DDR3 SDRam. It was a snap to install, and runs fast and quiet.
Excerpt: This system was purchased to replace the old Dell. It has the features needed for game play and was easy to setup. Most systems owned by the family are Dell so that was what we loolked for. It has been in use for a few months now with no problams with the system. Windows 7 came preinstalled and has been a solid OS. Hardware has not been a problem but then rarely is for a Dell. The systemis in use fpr 12-14 hours each day.
