We checked 808 expert and owner reviews for DELL desktop computers and found that on average DELL has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that DELL has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the computers of a similar spec and age to the Inspiron 3000 the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 860GB. The Inspiron 3000 has a quite big hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Inspiron 3000.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers and we think the 110, and the ProDesk 400 G2 both from HP or the Lenovo X310 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the Aspire X3-710 (2TB), or the Aspire T3-710 (2TB) both from Acer which is also cheaper.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The internal memory of comparable spec personal computers that were released around the same time as the Inspiron 3000 range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB. With an internal memory of 12 gigabytes, the Inspiron 3000 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth looking at include the DELL Inspiron 3847 (16GB) which is also cheaper.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it.

3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
4 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the Inspiron 3000 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the Inspiron 3000 is 1,100MHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 ($485.71) (SSD), or the Fujitsu D556 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many computers of a similar type and age to it.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Inspiron 3000 is more than most computers of a similar age and type to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this DELL personal computer.

3 Other reasons to consider the DELL Inspiron 3000
Released Over Two Years Ago
DELL released the Inspiron 3000 over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.2 gigahertz, the Inspiron 3000 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the Inspiron 3000.
We compared all the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed desktop computers to this desktop computer and we think cheaper computers such as the Lenovo X310 is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the OptiPlex 9020 ($475.00) (3.3GHz and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 3020 SFF (3.3GHz and cheaper) both from DELL or the Acer Veriton M2631 (3.3GHz and cheaper).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Inspiron 3000 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been available for more than a year.
We compared this computer to all the other 1TB total storage capacity desktop computers and we think the 110, the Z230 ($1,426.49), and the ProDesk 400 G2 all from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Aspire X3-710 (2TB and cheaper), or the Aspire T3-710 (2TB and cheaper) both from Acer or the Asus K31AD (2TB and cheaper).
