Many of us build our own computers, but for those without the necessary skills, time, or interest there are a plethora of pre-built systems on the market to suit all demands. Today we are looking at the Dell Inspiron 620 MT desktop system which, on paper seems ideal for a general all round workhorse or office system.
The Dell Inspiron 620 MT certainly won’t break the bank, with prices starting at £428.99. For the money you get an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, Nvidia discrete graphics and a DVD burner. Dell also bundle Windows 7 Home Premium, a keyboard and mouse with every purchase. Simply hook up to a monitor or TV and you are ready to start working.
As with some of Dell’s recent system builds, they allow for a small amount of user customisation, with coloured front panels available via the configuration tool. These add £10 to the final price, so it isn’t a huge outlay. Peacock Blue, Deep Purple, Formosa Red and Solid White are on offer.
