Dell Inspiron i560-4000NBK review: Dell Inspiron i560-4000NBK

Review Sections

Excellent power efficiency might not be a selling point for most consumers, but between this system and the Inspiron i545-1125NBK mentioned earlier, Dell has demonstrated an apparent commitment to keeping its desktops' power consumption in check. Each of Dell's budget retail systems leads its price category among Windows 7-based desktops, and for that Dell should be commended. That power efficiency won't get you anything more tangible than an extra dollar or so in your pocket every month, and you can likely make more meaningful investments in your own green conscious efforts. Still, for those who keep such things top of mind, perhaps you may sleep easier knowing the Dell is among the greener desktops we've tested.

We also have a fair opinion of Dell's service and support policies and offerings. You get a year of warranty coverage out of the box, as well as 24-7 toll-free phone support. The system itself comes with a few programs for monitoring system health, and Dell's Web site provides a handful of useful support features, from driver and manual downloads to online support chat.
