There is no monitor but a full-size wired keyboard and mouse in the package. Graphics card is the Intel HD 4600 with two video out jacks to connect to two separate monitors and that is comparable to discrete Radeon HD 8650G or NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M/630M. You’ll find 3-stack audio jacks supporting 5.1 surround sound at the rear and you need to connect speakers or get sound through the monitor (quality will depend on the monitor sound level) and you will experience rich visuals with the integrated Intel HD 4600 that is up to 60% faster than the Intel HD 4000 and around 30% faster in gaming. You won’t have any problems in regular/ basic multimedia editing with such powerful CPU and Intel HD 4600- you can play older games fluently at higher settings and newer titles at lower settings and resolutions.

Conclusion: Dell Inspiron 3000 series i3647 desktop with Intel i5-4460 and Windows 7 is quiet, fast, powerful and stable and doesn’t come with a lot of junkware or trial programs and out of the few you will find pre-installed and that you won’t need, you can easily uninstall them so it is quite easy to set up and the fact that it doesn’t come with Windows 8, but the more user friendly Windows 7 appears to be a big plus for many customers. 8GB RAM would be plenty for most people as it is, for multitasking smoothly and efficiently and can be expanded up to 16GB. 1TB is quite a lot of space that would be hard to fill and the fact that it is 7200rpm rotating speed is a plus, so you can open your files or photos faster. If you want even better performance and speed, you can always go for a Solid Stated Drive to enable even faster boot-ups and speeds overall. You will have no problem with graphics editing, programming or performing heavier more demanding tasks at the office- there is not a lot it can’t do, even some gaming but you do need at least a mid-range dedicated graphics card for being able to play the latest titles at high settings, other than that it is a cool machine. It is highly rated by customers online and the reviews are mainly positive, the most part of it being its speed and power to handle a variety of demanding tasks with ease.
