Black Inspiron i3847-3846BK is one of the latest smart and compact 3000 series desktops by Dell with large storage, memory and a fast Intel i3 processor. Although this Dell comes in a small package and already has great features, it is easy to upgrade too. We think the price is fair and it is clear that you'd be getting more value than what you're paying for this PC.

Dell Inspiron has an Intel Core i3-4130 processor at massive 3.4 GHz speed, 8GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1600 MHz speed, 1 TB Serial ATA at 7200 rpm hard drive and the latest Windows 8.1 operating system.. The Intel i3-4130 is a 4th generation processor helping you both save on energy bills while giving you the ability to run several demanding software and browser tabs at the same time without freezing or delays with the multitasking power you're getting from its huge 8 GB memory, which is not expandable but more than adequate for 99% of customers. The graphics card is the standard Intel HD integrated graphics, which is reasonable for most stuff but not for those intensive 3D games at high settings.

It will be very hard for you to run out of space with its 1000 GB Serial ATA hard drive that should allow any computer user to save videos, songs, photos and other files and the rotating speed being 7200 rpm, it works faster than the majority of hard drives that have the 5400 rpm. PocketCloud 2.0 enables you to have access to your more important files from other computers or mobile devices. Dell Inspiron comes with the Windows 8.1 preinstalled which is less painful than the original Windows 8 (as described by some users that are used to the Win 7 or XP). Win 8.1 offers more features and new apps you'd find handy on a daily basis- that are easy to personalise and smoother navigation.

The Dell Inspiron weighs 23.8 pounds with the dimensions of 21.93 x 14.88 x 19.25 inches and looks pretty and contemporary. It works very quietly, has a nice keyboard and a mouse that certainly don't feel cheap. It comes with a DVD±RW optical drive that burns and plays DVDs and CDs, 6 x USB 2.0 ports (4 at the front), 2 x USB 3.0 ports (at the rear) for super quick data transfers, 1 x Audio-out port, a VGA port and an HDMI port (so it will support 2 monitors), high performance 802.11a/b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to devices like printers, cell phones and mice wirelessly, Gigabit Ethernet with RJ-45 offering high-speed wired internet, 8-in-1 Memory card reader for easy transfer of media (music, photos, videos) files.

Conclusion: Dell Inspiron i3847-3846BK is a great value for money desktop PC with medium range specs at a budget price. It is made of good quality components (reliable and durable), offers 4th generation Intel i3 power and speed with generous amounts of RAM and HDD, easy to set-up and use, is great looking, has a DVD drive and Bluetooth, comes with a decent range of connectivity options and has a low price tag. Some customers are not happy with the Windows 8 OS and prefer the Windows 7 but the Win 8 or 8.1 is actually about a short learning curve. This is a very fast PC that performs all your tasks at school, work or home smoothly (except for the super intensive software and the latest advanced games).
