Strong daily use machine for general computing tasks
35-year Technology Consumer "8-tracks to 802.11", Amazon

Summary: First: a used PC (the only current availability of this model) is not something I would typically recommend to somebody in the market for a desktop computer. Even if you are headed that route, I'd carefully examine new machines at the same price, where you are likely to find increased performance and warranty support. This review is recap of the 3.5 years (and counting) of service of a Dell Inspiron 580 purchased from Dell.
Excerpt: When i purchased my dell i heard pros and cons about dell computers before buying a dell. I decided to buy a dell because there was more pros than cons, and all i can say is i'm glad i did. This is absolutely the best and most reliable computer i have ever owned. I play online games frequently and am on social sites and we also run a radio station on the internet and this computer has no problems at all handling all of that.
The Dell Inspiron 580S has more bang for the buck.

Excerpt: This desktop comes with the power and storage to provide all that I will ever need for the next 5 to 8 years. 6GB Dual channel memory and 3i 3.06 GHz processor gives me the ability to use multiple applications at better than 5 times the speed that I previously had. It was cheaper to have a 1 TB Hard drive than 320 GB on other systems. The combination of power and memory made the change from Windows XP to Windows 7 a zero effort transition.
Excerpt: in this day and age of apple selling overpriced computers, it's nice to know that Dell is still offering sane alternatives. i picked up this computer from dell during one of their sales, it was a refurbished model but it arrived with no problems and i really couldn't tell what had been wrong with it.
Excerpt: What can I say. The Dell Inspiron model is absolutely the best money you can get at $500-700. I have had an inspiron for 6 years and would never change. Not even for an apple. Now I own Apple products such as Ipad or Iphone and have used Mac's at work but I definitely perfer the relativity use of a PC.
Excerpt: I JUST BOUGHT THIS COMPUTER LAST WEEK AND BEST BUY AND DELL TOLD ME THAT THIS COMPUTER IS BEST TO BUY BECAUSE OPERATING SYSTEM IS THE BEST TO RUN. I REALLY LOVE IT ALOT BECAUSE IT RUNS SO FAST AND WORTH TO HAVE IT. I SUGGEST ANYONE TO BUY THIS KIND OF COMPUTER. I CHECKED THE COMMENTS FROM BEST BUY AND DELL THAT LOTS OF PEOPLE REALLY LOVE THIS COMPUTER BECAUSE OF BEST OPERATING SYSTEM AND HAVE LOTS OF MEMORY AND RAMS. MY COMPUTER HAS 6GHZ AND 8 GB.
An honest review from someone who actually knows technology.

Summary: FIRST OF ALL: In response to the other reviewer. Don't believe the person whose telling you to buy a Gateway over a Dell. Gateway hasn't been good for 10+ years. I bought this computer almost two years ago and haven't encountered a single problem. The performance is great, its quiet, dell has been wonderful, and it runs my entire game library without the slightest hesitation.
