Black Dell Inspiron i3847-3850BK is a 3000 series mid-range compact desktop offering decent performance with a fast and powerful 4th generation Intel i3 processor, lots of memory and hard drive, easy expandability of system memory, hard drive and graphics card so you can build more on the already powerful and adequate system.

Dell Inspiron comes with the Haswell dual core Intel i3-4150 processor (3MB Cache) at 3.5 GHz speed with hyper threading function for smooth 4-way processing, 8GB (2 x 4GB) Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600 MHz for high multitasking power to run several apps and programs, performing a few tasks at once and that can be upgraded to a max of 16 GB, 1 TB SATA hard drive at 7200rpm fast rotating speed- 6Gb/s and PocketCloud 2.0 to let you have easy access to your important data at whatever location.

The operating system is the English 64-bit Windows 8.1 that allows you to customise your desktop and to navigate smoothly with also its nice new features. The i3-4150 is a low heat and energy efficient high performance processor that will let you play games like PlanetSide 2, Minecraft, Skyrim at high settings with the right graphics card- a mid-range to advanced discrete card so you will be restricted by the Intel HD integrated graphics 4400 for gaming performance but the system will handle other graphics related tasks quite well and you can still play a game like Fallout New Vegas at medium settings comfortably.

Although the Haswell i3 CPU is roughly half price of a Haswell i7 processor and $100 less than an i5, it is very much capable of handling advanced games with the right kind of dedicated graphics card, such as a GTX 750 so you may want to invest in a decent graphics card if you’re an avid gamer and you will be good to go, otherwise it is an overall great system to handle day-to-day tasks and multimedia stuff: Some gaming, photo editing, multimedia storage, surfing the internet, working with spreadsheets and more. There is not a lot of bloatware on it, you’ll find the Cyberlink Media Suite, a 30 day trial of McAfee Security and Microsoft Office. It comes with a 1 year In-Home parts and labor warranty by Dell along with great customer service and technical support.
