Dell Inspiron I530-120B review: Dell Inspiron I530-120B

Expandability inside the Dell is basic, and in line with what we expect in a system in this price class. You get a single PCI Express graphics card slot, a quarter-length PCI Express 1x slot, and two standard PCI inputs, although one is occupied by a 56K modem. All four RAM slots come occupied, but you do have room to add a second internal hard drive.

Like all of its systems, Dell covers the Inspiron I530-120B with a one year parts and labor warranty and 24-7 toll free phone support. This is also on par with the rest of the industry. You can also find help on Dell's Web site, which has system-specific support, driver downloads, FAQs, and other features.
