Dell GX270


$599.00 Released April, 2004

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Setup is very simple, not much more to it than plugging it in and turning it on. Can run office applications and surf the web without any serious lag. Generally stable, can be left on all day and night without crashes.

The Cons:High-definition video tends to miss frames and have errors in the display. Limited expansion capabilities, not much room in the case and few slots open. Boring case design, almost unattractive in how plain it looks.

The Dell GX270 is a mid-to-low end desktop PC designed (at the time of release) to provide average consumers with a cheaper and more affordable option for an up to date computer. The GX270 features a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processor, 1024MB (1GB) installed DDR RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and a DVD-ROM drive of varying speeds depending on the particular model.

The GX270 includes additional options such as a 1.44MB floppy disk drive, integrated video, audio and ethernet controllers on the motherboard, and a stylish black mid tower case.

The GX270 comes bundled with a copy of Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 edition. The GX270 was released in early 2004, and it is worth noting that with the advancement of technology today computers are almost nearly outdated the moment they are put on a retail shelf; this makes the GX270 old (relative to age) in the world of computers.
