Experts may suggest that the PC market is slowing down, but there are a ton of innovations being made on that front. Take, for example desktops – they no longer are large ugly boxes meant to sit in one dusty corner of your house. They can be sleek, powerful and fit right in the living room. All-in-ones are not a new phenomenon and they aren’t extremely common, but there’s a lot changing on that front with every single model. Dell has launched their new Dell Inspiron One 2320.

Design and build quality

The Dell Inspiron One 2320 isn’t bad to look at. It is pretty large because of its 23-inch display. The entire frame is made of plastic with extremely sturdy stands and a plastic extension at the rear that helps keep the PC stable and also alter its inclination. The plastic used is of decent quality, but there is some flex along the bezel panel surrounding the display itself.  


The frame at the bottom houses the speakers, that are JBL branded and there’s also the usual branding for Windows 7 and Intel’s Core i5 processor. On the upper panel of the bezel lies the webcam, which is hidden by a sliding protection panel. There’s also quite a gap between the screen and the side bezel. This being a touchscreen, all-in-one requires you to move your fingers on the screen. If you slide your finger along the edges, you’ll find this gap and it’s also a little sharp along the edges. As a whole, however, the display looks pretty good. 


The connectors and controls are placed on the sides of the display. The right side of the display has the DVD drive, while all of the rest of the connectors – volume, brightness controls and USB ports are located to the left.  The Inspiron One is powered by a large external power adapter. The bundled keyboard and mouse are of good quality, though. The keyboard is slim and lightweight – there’s not a lot of depth to the keys. The mouse is wireless and a little bulky. Still, it’s ergonomically designed, but the keyboard has no notches to adjust the stand to the height of your liking. The mouse is powered by two AA batteries and replacing them is really simple – the top of the mouse comes off and you place the two batteries in them.

 

Features

At the heart of the Inspiron One is an Intel Core i5 2400S, a quad-core processor that’s clocked at 2.5GHz. Of course, with TurboBoost, it’ll spike up to 3.3GHz when needed. There’s 6GB of memory onboard the PC we received for review. As for storage, there’s a 1TB 7200rpm Seagate SATA3 hard drive. The unit we received also came with a standard Intel HD graphics solution. Bluetooth 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi 802.11n are supported as part of the platform used as well.


The display is a 23-inch 1920x1080 touch capable display and feels like it’s a capacitive one and is very sensitive. Once calibrated properly, it does become quite accurate. There are a ton of software that are bundled with the PC that help take advantage of the touchscreen functionality. For example, there’s the Zinion eBook reader that can be used to browse magazines and scroll through pages like you would on a mobile or tablet. There’s also the bunch of games that come bundled with Windows as well as some music instruments.
