The Dell Inspiron One 2310 is a 23-inch space-saving, all-in-one desktop PC which has a lot of interesting features. The Inspiron 2310 has a full-HD 1080p screen resolution and an Intel Core i5 processor, with an optional multitouch-enabled screen. If you’re looking to replace your aging desktop PC with a sleek, good-looking all-in-one desktop below Rs. 50,000, let’s check what the Dell Inspiron One 2310 has in store for you.

Design & Build
The Inspiron One 2310 is a very good looking laptop, slim and stylish -- better than the Dell Studio One 19. The Dell Inspiron One 2310 is like any other all-in-one PC with a photo-frame design -- similar to the Lenovo IdeaCentre B500, MSI Wind Top AE2220, and Lenovo IdeaCentre B300, for example. The Dell Inspiron One 2310 all-in-one has a nice polished matte shell with a gunmetal gray shade on on the back panel -- it certainly looks better than other all-in-one desktops we’ve reviewed, with the exception of the all-aluminum Apple iMac. The desktop’s two onboard stereo speakers are placed below the screen bezel.

With the inclusion of a wireless keyboard and mouse, the Dell Inspiron One 2310 does well to limit cable clutter on the desk -- you need just one cable to switch on and start using the Inspiron One 2310 desktop. We didn’t have any complaints from the Dell Inspiron One 2310 PC’s build quality; it’s nice and solid. If anything, it’s tilting stand comes across as slightly thin, but it isn’t flimsy and supports the weight of the all-in-one-desktop PC pretty well.

Usability
The Dell Inspiron One 2310 all-in-one PC comes with a 23-inch widescreen display supporting a full-HD 1920x1080 pixel resolution. The screen is matte in nature -- unlike most popular all-in-one desktop PCs. We really liked the 23-inch screen on the Inspiron One 2310, despite its non-glossy screen it manages to pull off very good brightness, contrast levels, and color reproduction is also better-than-average for its class of all-in-one PC. Viewing angles are also good with acceptable color shift. Reading text and watching HD movies was a nice experience on the Dell Inspiron One 2310 all-in-one PC.

The Dell Inspiron One 2310 also has an optional multi-touch screen version which supports touch input. But since ever touch-enabled all-in-one PC can’t do without a mouse or keyboard, it is best to look at this function as an add-on feature.

The Inspiron One 2310 comes with a 2MP webcam for videochats over the Web. It also comes with a useful webcam software to record videos and snap photos and upload them on YouTube or Flickr, respectively -- and have some fun in the process.
