Computex 2017 in Taipei has seemed like a series of one-upmanship so far, from the new Asus ultra-thin laptops or Nvidia's ultrabook initiative. Dell is not looking to be left out and has revealed the newest series of Inspiron desktops that offer all-in-one and upgradable options.

Inspiron Gaming Desktop

The lowest bar of entry will be the Inspiron Gaming Desktop. The new desktop will serve as a cheaper option than the high-end Alienware gaming computers that Dell has offered. This falls in line with the Inspiron 14 and 15 laptops that Dell also announced earlier this year and which serve as a cheaper option to Alienware laptops.

The base model desktop will include an AMD A10 processor, a 1 TB hard-drive, an AMD Radeon RX560, and 8 GB of RAM. As mentioned, this is a base model desktop with the graphics card being one of the mid-range cards that AMD offers as a budget graphics card. The desktop will start at $600, but it can be upgraded into a much more powerful and expensive machine.

While $600 is the base, the upgrade options available could bump the price of the desktop to nearly $2,000. Some of the stronger components that can scale the desktop include a Ryzen 7 processor, a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, an SSD boot drive, and a liquid cooling system. There are also cosmetic options like transparent casing and lights for anyone wanting to show off the inside of their machine.

Inspiron All-In-One

The other options shown off were the new all-in-one desktops Dell now has available for sale. The two models available are the Inspiron 24 5000, starting at $700, and the Inspiron 27 7000, starting at $1,000.

Being the cheaper of the two, the 5000 series fits in with more of a budget model computer. The internals of the desktop include an AMD A12 processor, an AMD Radeon RX560 graphics card, and a 1 TB hard drive. While it won't set the world on fire, it is a decent all-in-one for the budget shopper.

The 7000 series desktop does offer more in the way of options for a more powerful computer. While the $1,000 option offers the same graphics card as the 5000 series, the 7000 gets the power bump from the newer Ryzen processors with a Ryzen 5 1400 processor built in. The $1,300 option trades out the Ryzen 5 for the Ryzen 7 1700 shape and the Radeon RX560 for the Radeon RX580. The third option starts at $1,500, and this includes the display upgrade from a 1080p screen to a 4K HDR but still works off most of the same components as the $1,300 option.

While these do fit into the budget model Dell goes for, the all-in-ones, especially the 7000 series, offer a little more bang for the buck than most all-in-one desktops. The internals won't outpace any higher-end machines, but it does provide anyone looking for a premium-ish experience without breaking the bank.
