2016 Dell Inspiron i3252 Premium Mini PC Desktop
2016 model Dell Inspiron i3252 is the new entry level mini premium desktop computer designed to offer maximum amount of efficiency using up the least amount of space possible with the entry level quad core Braswell fifth generation Intel Pentium N3700 processor (Level 2 2M Cache) at 1.6GHz speed up to 2.4GHz speed for handling daily things, 8GB DDR3L SDRAM (1 x 8GB) at 1600MHz for superior multitasking capability, ample space of storage- 1TB HDD at 7200rpm rotating speed whch is not as snappy as SSD but faster than 5400rpm speed hard drives and the latest release 64-bit English Windows 10 operating system that starts up and shuts down pretty fast. You won’t find a monitor included in the package but a basic wired Dell KB216 keyboard and Dell MS116 mouse combo. It includes a DVD±RW Optcal Drive as well as a decent range of ports and connectivity options like the 802.11bgn wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, Ethernet port, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 4 x USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI output, a VGA output, 5 in 1 Micro Card Reader, Line in/out & mic and Audio combo jack. Integrated Intel HD Graphics (Braswell) is good for a range of multimedia but not for advanced gaming but is twice as powerful as the Intel HD Bay Trail.
There are no built-in speakers but an integrated 5.1 Channel and Wave MaxxAudio Pro so with the right kind of speakers, sound performance will be quite good. It offers sufficient performance for the usual daily tasks like surfing the interrnet, Microsoft Word and Excel, photo and video viewing but not the heavy multimedia editing or running complex software or the heavy 3D games of 2015 – 2016 (gaming performance is limited) but the 4K and H.265 video acceleration is supported by this Intel HD Braswell GPU. It weighs 8.64 pounds and measures 11.42 x 3.65 x 11.5 inches- small in size and lightweight. As the Thermal Design Power is only 6 watts it does not need active cooling system – fans, also runs quieter than normal and as an Energy Star 6.1 certified computer it doesn”t consume much electricity. It is easy to set up and use- simple plugging in and getting to work, is compact in size, works great, is fast and accurate, and not expensive if you will be using your computer mainly for sending emails, typing up Word documents, working on spreadsheets, playing simple older games, watching movies in high definition and listening to songs then this is a desktop model you can certainly look into.
