Anyone got a Dell Vostro/Inspiron desktop?

  Jamesy 13:53 22 Aug 2007

Hey guys, Dell have not long ago released these machines and there's some cracking deals on them I just wonder what your opinions of the machines are as there aint many reviews around.

I'm coming up from a Dell 5150 and one of my main concerns is noise. As you may know, the 5150/9200 are very quiet machines, BTX models infact. The vostro/insporon desktop line share a uniform ATX case I believe except different colours. Anyone who has them care to comment on their noise production, will they be noisier than my 5150?

Also, are you generally happy with the machine?

There aren't reviews of Dells because Dell doesn't supply the computer press with machines for review.

We've recently had a look at a Vostro desktop and an Inspiron laptop, if that helps:

The Vostro wasn't the quietest, but it wasn't offensive.

Set up an Inspiron 530 today (well, yesterday, it being 12:15am) , apart from an initial blast from a fan, almost completely silent. It's bottom of the range but still handled Vista Home Premium with plenty in reserve.
