Dell In­sp­iron 24 7000 AIO

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST - By Az­izul Rah­man Ismail

Sleek, slen­der, and dressed to im­press: the dy­namic Dell In­sp­iron 24 7000 is a mount­ful all-in-one PC that fea­tures some of the most fun and in­ter­est­ing tech­nolo­gies, crammed into some­thing so slim.

The de­sign of the In­sp­iron 24 7000 AIO is clean, thin, stylish, and mod­ern. The bulk of the PC is dis­trib­uted be­tween the mon­i­tor, the neck and the base – mak­ing it look thin all through and through. Com­bined with alu­minum gray with black ac­cents, this all-in-one PC also car­ries an air of lux­ury.

Our re­view unit comes stan­dard with Dell's wire­less desk­top key­board and mouse. Once all set up, the only cable that was con­nected to the In­sp­iron 24 7000 AIO was the power cable. Nev­er­the­less, the base of the PC pro­vides four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a mem­ory card reader, a uni­ver­sal head­set jack, au­dio out, Eth­er­net port,

NOVEM­BER 2015 and HDMI out. The base also houses the stereo speak­ers. How­ever, plug­ging in too many pe­riph­er­als to the PC takes away from its es­thet­ics.

In­ter­est­ingly, there is also an HDMI in port built into the base. This means users can plug in an­other de­vice, for ex­am­ple a gam­ing con­sole, to the In­sp­iron 24 7000 AIO and take ad­van­tage of its beau­ti­ful 23.8-inch Full HD Tru­elife LED-back­lit touch dis­play. The tilt of the dis­play has a range of be­tween -5° to 60°, giv­ing the AIO PC a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions.

Built into the top of the dis­play is an In­tel RealSense cam­era. On pa­per, the tech­nol­ogy is sound. It has fa­cial anal­y­sis that could track mul­ti­ple faces, and iden­tify fa­cial fea­tures like eyes, mouth and nose. It also has hand and fin­ger track­ing, with the abil­ity to track up to 10 fin­gers si­mul­ta­ne­ously, rec­og­nize eight ges­tures, and ac­cess to raw depth data.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the RealSense cam­era has sound pro­cess­ing in the form of speech recog­ni­tion and back­ground noise sub­trac­tion; aug­mented re­al­ity with ob­ject track­ing; and the abil­ity to draw CG images in real-world sce­nar­ios.

It's a fun nov­elty, but as any gamer would tell you, this tech­nol­ogy is very sim­i­lar to the one built into a cur­rent gen­er­a­tion con­sole, and that tech­nol­ogy has been un­cer­e­mo­ni­ously side­lined by the afore­men­tioned con­sole maker.

A gam­ing PC the In­sp­iron 24 7000 AIO is not, but to be fair, it could sat­isfy ca­sual gamers. It is, how­ever, bet­ter suited as a pro­duc­tiv­ity, cre­ativ­ity, and me­dia con­sump­tion de­vice. This can be seen in our PCMark bench­mark tests, where it scored 3,489, 4,714, and 4,242 in the ac­cel­er­ated Home, Work, and Cre­ativ­ity tests, re­spec­tively.

The In­sp­iron 24 7000 AIO scored well in tasks con­cern­ing con­tent cre­ation, as well as con­tent con­sump­tion.
