Summary: We acquired five Inspiron 580s for our office and have found them both to perform as good as expected and reliable. Now 2+ years later, I'm adding staff and looking for more of same. Nothing wrong with this machine for general office work spanning from accounting to desktop publishing, and light video editing and graphics work. Simply no problems on any of the machines.
Excerpt: It has plenty of storage for my many pictures of my son and family. My mom bought this for me for school and it has never let me down. I wish my old computer was as fast as this one. Plus I really enjoy the front load USB connectors. I can just take out the memory card from my camera and insert it directly into the computer. Makes downloading pictures super easy!!!
This Dell Inspiron 580 has great features for the money paid.

Excerpt: I purchased this Dell as a second pc but with the graphics, sound quality, and processing speed it has become my number one PC. I am an at home worker and this system performs well accessing VPN's(virtual private network) and other programs needed to perform my job.
Solid computer for a fair price from a great brand!

Excerpt: Last year, my old computer's hard drive showed signs it was about to fail, so after much contemplation, we decided to spring for a brand new one. We researched computers with the features we wanted, and that's what led us to this one. I've always liked Dells, and the particular bundle we got came with a monitor and cost us around $500, but we did get a lot for that price.
Summary: This is my current computer and the first desktop computer I have owned in years. After getting very used to using laptops for video editing I didn't think the move to a desktop computer would do much good but I was really wrong. There really is no comparing a laptops performance to a desktop computer, desktop wins every time. Now the Dell Inspiron 580 was a really good choice, I honestly hadn't done much research, I saw the price, looked at the RAM and then purchased.
Pros: Fast processor, lots of RAM and HDD space, Sleek design
Cons: Not the best durability, no in-built wireless adapter
Summary: Like the Dell PC I had before, this is a relaible product. Once its out of the boxits up and running instantly, no setup problems. The specification is good for the money and Dell's expertise at building these things comes out. The computor look cool and everything is neatly hidden. Performance wise ths is ideal for anyone wanting to surf the next and general computor use but with enough power to allow the kids to play games to there hearts content.
