Dell launches 1TB desktop PCs

Dell unveils Inspiron PC line

Dell Tuesday unveiled its new consumer desktop PC brand -- Inspiron. Two of the first products in Dell's Inspiron line are the Dell Inspiron 530 and 531 desktop systems.

Starting at just US$498 inc VAT, the Dell Inspiron desktops are designed as consumer home PCs. As a consequence, they have huge potential hard drive capacity, and are designed to look stylish in the living room. And customers can opt for two 500GB hard drives, for a whopping 1TB of total storage space -- although we'd suggest that this will cost considerably more than US$498 -- details to follow.

One nice touch is that the Dell Inspiron towers each have no fewer than eight USB ports. Some have 10. We found four of these on the front, which is a small, but important, concession. The models we looked at also came with stylish peripherals and Dell's new SE198WFP 19in wide-screen flat-panel.

All the Dell Inspiron desktop PCs can be specified to include dual- or single-core processors, and customers can choose between AMD and Intel chipsets. Users can also choose from the following flavors of the Windows Vista operating system: Home Basic, Premium or Ultimate.

Those buying the new Dell Inspiron desktops will also be able to take advantage of Dell's soon-to-launch DataSafe system. Users will be able to back-up 30GB of their most precious data via Dell to an anonymous third party The data will be held in an encrypted vault, allowing the user to access it remotely and providing a safeguard against system failure.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
