Solid Desktop, Reasonable Price Point for the Performance.

Strengths: Upgradable, with two 5.25" and two 3.5" bays accessible to the outside. PCI Express slot allows for high-performance graphics.

Weakness: Tired design. All the desktops made during its time look alike. Front USB ports are annoyingly difficult to access.

This desktop offers the best of both worlds. While it isn't ridiculously priced like many of Dell's XPS systems, it still offers much of the performance of their higher-end systems. It has space for plenty of upgrades and has a PCI Express slot that allows for many of the higher-end graphics cards. Uses serial ATA hard drives for high performance. The only complaints I have are minimal at best. I...

Strengths: Price and Dell Reputation

Weakness: No help from Dell when it crashed.

I loved this new DEll while it worked. It lasted for 6 months and when I turned it on there was no Start button or task bar. I was sick because I couldn't work the computer. The data in some programs on the Desktop was there, but none of the programs worked. I called Dell and they said it was a "Spyware" problem and couldn't do anything since it wasn't a "hardware" problem. I had paid for a four...

Strengths: Expandability, Flexibility

Weakness: Only 2 IDE Slots.

This is an upgrade for my previous 8200 machine. I am happy with over all performance but not a significant difference in the day to day work from my old PC. My old PC has RD ram which is what triggered me to buy a new one. I am happy with expandability of the PC especially when the SATA HD's are cheaper. I am happy that this PC does very low noise when it is compared with the 8200.

Weakness: Tired old case, front USB and Headphone jacks are hard to reach

I upgraded to this desktop from my old Dell Dimension 8200 which I had bought in November 2001. Well, on the outside, nothing has changed. Same case, same flip up front cover, and frankly, I'm a bit tired of this case; however, the inside is what's really important and the 8400 is much improved. It carries the latest intel chips with HT technology and chipsets as well as the newer and faster pci...

Strengths: Queit; Powerful; Affordable price; Reliable; Great customer service.

Weakness: None.

This PC is designed for high-end gaming and multimedia functions. Intel's top-of-the-line Pentium 4 and the new high-performance 925X Express chipset; PCI Express graphics card; strong performer with an eye toward the future; crisp monitor; strong support options. I'm very happy with it. Highly recommend!
