Dell's got a new little Inspiron Windows PC for your desktop
Dell has released its latest Windows desktop PC and while it isn't one for the performance hungry it does have its charms.
The Inspiron Micro is as its name implies, but still housing a full Windows 8.1 with Bing PC and enough ports for it to be genuinely useful on your desk.
There are two versions, one with a Celeron J1800 CPU and one with a Pentium J2900 CPU, with the former costing from just $179. Other specs include 2GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD drive, 4 USB ports and a full-sized SD card slot. For fans of wired internet there's an Ethernet port built in, so no adaptors required, and the Micro also has 802.11 ac Wifi support.
The Pentium powered model will set you back a little more at $229, but neither of these Bay Trail powered machines are aimed at the power users. Instead they'd make a great little desktop for work or for the kids, and Windows 8.1 generally runs pretty well on low-powered hardware. Check them out now at the Dell Store linked below.
