DELL HYBRID-140G Desktop PC Core 2 Duo T5850 (2.16GHz) 3GB DDR2 250GB HDD Windows Vista Home Basic
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Tiny Size ~ About the size of a large external Drive enclosure (like the kinds that would hold an full size optical drive) - very small foot print for the desktop
- Good Specs, Core 2 Duo; 3GBRam
- Very Low Power Consumption - Probably the Greenest Desktop
- Runs Windows 7 64-Bit like a champ
- No dongle or adapter for included wireless mouse and keyboard (saves USB slot)
- Built-In Card Reader
- HDMI Port
- Slot Load DVD Burner

Cons: - Onboard Video (Intel GMA X3100) not the greatest (ie. blueray performance)
- Very Expensive to Add BlueRay (Decoder Card & Drive required)
- DVD Drive is slow compared to my desktop when ripping DVD's
- 4GB Ram Max
- Intel Wireless Card gets terrible reception (used a USB Dongle instead and it works great)
- Sensor for DVD Eject (not a button, but a sensor) did not work in Windows 7 64bit. Well, really a tradeoff, either you could get the sensor to work and Keyboard features such as volume would not OR Keyboard features work and sensor would not. This was only a problem in Windows 7 64bit, to my knowledge and has since been fixed. Was annoying until they came out with the update though.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this from a different site about 4 months ago (same specs exactly and refurb). This was to replace a 6 year old shuttle system that will not boot (bios chip or MB problem). Needed something with a very small footprint as this is my wife's computer she keeps in the bedroom.

I really like the system layout and size. It is very responsive with Windows 7 64bit.

I would have liked it better if it had a better graphics chipset, however, it meets my wife's needs.

Some other thoughts:
- Think of this as a laptop without a keyboard or screen.

- The wireless card is a mini-PCIe slot, so it may be possible to replace the card with a better one. I have not taken it apart (yet), I am not sure about how the antenna routes, however, I am sure it is simlar to a laptop.
- Second mini-PCIe slot that is meant for a Broadcom Blueray Decoder card, if you ordered with that option from Dell. Thinking about trying one of those mini-PCIe HardDrives not sure if it would work.

5 out of 5 eggs Needed a Cheap Power Suppy; Fits the biull 10/14/2009

This review is from: hec HP585DB 585W ATX12V Power Supply - Power Cord Included

Pros: - works well
- No power issues
- Good for my older Pentium 4 System
- Cheap
- Cheap

Cons: - Needs more Sata

Other Thoughts: My 4 year old Antec Smartpower blew one day and I wanted to get a cheap power supply to make sure that that is what the problem was and that nothing had fried on the board. Originally, I thought I might replace this one with a beefier name brand power supply. However, I have never felt the need to on this older system. Works. No power issues.
