Dell Inspiron i5348-2000BLK is a slim 23 inch Full HD screen All-in-one desktop PC with a modern design including the full tilt feature, a decent 3 GHz Haswell Intel Pentium processor, 4GB memory and a large 1TB hard drive that make this Inspiron ideal for work or study purposes as well as home entertainment. **The model shown on the video below is the touchscreen i5348-3889BLK model, review on this page is for the same model with non-touch screen**

Dell Inspiron AIO has the 4th generation dual core Intel Pentium G3220 (3MB Cache) processor at 3.00GHz speed, 4GB DDR3 SDRAM (4GB x 1)- 1600/PC3-12800 to multitask efficiently- that can be expanded up to 16GB if needed, 1024GB hard drive at 5400rpm rotating speed as ample space of storage for lots of photos, videos, songs and regular files, 64-bit English Windows 8.1 operating system. The Pentium G3220 appears to be a low-cost but solid performer in daily tasks as well as games and multimedia work- but remember this is not a top of the range processor, is designed for budget consumers in mind (It doesn’t have the Turbo Boost or Hyperthreading so it works on dual cores at 3GHz fixed speed).

The 23 inch large anti-glare non-touch display is Active Matrix TFT Color LCD- LED backlit with 16:9 Aspect Ratio and is Full HD with 1920 x 1080 pixel maximum screen resolution and comes with the Intel HD graphics- so what will be preventing you from playing the latest games at high settings will not be the Pentium G3220 CPU but the integrated Intel HD graphics. You can always connect the system to a second monitor or a HDTV through the HDMI port with an HDMI cable. Quality of the sound is quite good with the Grammy award winning high definition Waves MaxxAudio and the stereo speakers. 720p HD webcam with integrated microphone is ideal for chatting on Skype with family and friends and videoconferencing with colleagues.
