Dell Inspiron i3263-8500BLK 21.5 AIO Desktop

Dell Inspiron 22 i3263-8500BLK is a modern and stylish 21.5 inch 3000 series All in One mid-range desktop computer with a sixth generation i3 processor, plenty of storage space and multitasking power, a good quality Full HD display, decent connectivity including a DVD-RW Drive, 802.11ac WiFi and a clutter-free design that is common to all AIO units and will save you on countertop in your kitchen/living room or desk space in your room. If we have a closer look at the main technical specs, you have the ultra low voltage Skylake Intel i3-6100U processor (3MB cache) at a fixed 2.30GHz speed processor without turbo boost but hyper-threading with two cores handling four threads in parallel, 8GB single-channel DDR3L SDRAM memory at 1600MHz that is quite a bit for the majority of customers but can be upgraded to 16GB if advanced users need it, 1TB SATA HDD storage at 5400rpm speed for all your common and multimedia files and 64-bit Windows 10 operating system.

21.5 inch brilliant diagonal Full HD TL display with 60Hz refresh rate has the touch functionality and IPS panel for better viewing both vertically and horizontally at up to 178 degrees and obviously 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution for very clear picture and realistic colors. You have everything inside the large monitor- the integrated speakers, hard drive, processor, memory, DVD Drive and everything else, except for the Dell KM636 keyboard and mouse combo that is also included, so you can start working or playing straight away after plugging it in and turning it on. The late 2015 release dual core i3-6100U processor has a PassMark benchmark score of 3887 that places it in the list of high mid range CPUs so you can comfortably edit your photos, stream and watch videos, play certain games but nothing too heavy. What you have as the graphics card is an Intel HD 520 with a performance similar to the dedicated GeForce 820M, which means you can play some of the games of 2016 at light settings only.

Waves MaxxAudio Pro and the speakers built into the screen deliver reasonable sound for your songs, games, and movies. Connectivity options include the 802.11ac wireless for much better speed, WiFi range and fewer drops, Bluetooth 4.0, Ethernet with the RJ-45 connector, Multimedia DVD Drive, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, 4-in-1 Media Card Reader, an HDMI output and a 720p webcam. Black Inspiron i3263 weighs 10.6 lbs with the dimensions of 1.4 x 20.7 x 13.7 inches- has a clutter-free space saving design and looks good with its contemporary and streamlined appearance. There is an empty slot for the RAM upgrade but we don’t think that is necessary unless you’re a power user that will push this system to the limits and you’re getting a very large hard drive at OK speed, that is not as good as what you can get with a Solid State Drive and you’ll need to remove this mechanical drive to put an SSD in it. Overall the Dell Inspiron i3263 offers pretty good value as it is not expensive and includes decent specs and features and only small flaws and you do not have to pay for a separate monitor either.
