I am a committed Dell customer and user. Dell does a really good job of putting together system components that work well with each other, and provide very good reliability and functionality. This is why I stick with Dell. The recent purchase of the Inspiron One 2330 has not let me down. I wanted to try an all-in-one machine this time because I wanted to eliminate the tower part of the system, in order to save space. The Inspiron One 2330 fit the bill. For myself, the 23 inch monitor is plenty large. It provides a very adequate viewing area without taking up excessive space on my computer desk. The main benefit of the 2330 is that the CPU portion is built right in to the back of the monitor. This is a wonderful innovation in saving space. The only drawback here is that the combination monitor and CPU makes the unit quite heavy. This is a desktop machine that you will want to put in place and leave it there. I would not call it portable in any way. Performance-wise, the Inspiron One 2330 is very good. I ordered mine with an Intel Core i5-3340S, 2.8GHz microporcessor. It has four processing cores built in to one chip. It is very fast and has plenty of computing power for all of my needs, which consist mainly of, internet use, writing documents and correspondence and some heavy scientific number crunching. I am not a gamer, so I can't speak about that type of performance. If you are looking for a solid, reliable, well-functioning and powerful desktop, the Inspiron One 2330 with do the job nicely!
