The size of memory is perfect for multitasking, you can edit multimedia while keeping tens of browsers open and listen to music and you will not experience any significant lagging in performance.

Hard drive size is great especially for those that need plenty of storage space and 7200rpm speed means it offers great read and write speeds. Pocket Cloud 2.0 offers the remote desktop feature to give you the ability to access your desktop from a smart phone or a tablet as well as Explore and Web options to see, arrange files and share them through email or social media from the 2GB of free Could based storage.

Black Dell Inspiron has the measurements of 21.93 x 14.88 x 19.25 inches which means it is quite compact for a desktop PC. It doesn’t come with a monitor but a Dell USB entry keyboard and an optical mouse (both wired) which are comfortable enough but you can always upgrade to a wireless keyboard and mouse if you wish. Intel HD 4400 is the integrated graphics card that shares the same memory with the Intel Core i3-4150 processor and is 20-30% faster than the Intel HD 4000 and matches the discrete Radeon HD 7550M in performance. The Inspiron doesn’t include any speakers but an integrated 5.1 Audio for decent sound performance from your monitor or external speakers.

Conclusion: Dell Inspiron i3847 is a powerful desktop computer that is very simple to set-up (with little bloatware and just the trial versions of MS Office and McAfee) and use in day-to-day or a little more complex tasks at home or work with decent specs and features including generous amounts of memory and hard drive, Windows 7 operating system rather than the much criticised Windows 8 and the ability to upgrade easily later on when you need it. This is not a high level gaming computer as you can imagine at this price level and it will handle some of the latest games at lower settings as well as older titles at higher settings. It is powerful enough for pretty much everything else that you’d do on a daily basis. It has the standard 1Yr In-Home Warranty that is offered standard with the Dell Inspiron 3000 series desktops.
