Packard Bell iMedia D3610 Desktop Computer
The Packard Bell iMedia D3610 is a desktop computer offering everything for the office and daily use at home. It is adequately equipped and has a low price. Only remains to add a monitor and a pair of speakers.
The iMedia D3610 is a low cost machine which appeared in the catalog of Packard Bell in March. Carrying a dual core, 3 GB of RAM and a graphics card with 512 MB of video memory, the iMedia D3610 on paper is powerful enough to run office applications and multimedia. Sold with approx. Rs. 26000, this computer is a good solution for users who do not need video games or video editing? That is what we wanted to verify by testing.
As for the finish on the case of the iMedia D3610, it would tend to say that it could have been much worse. It is certainly not up to the bodywork Dell or HP, or even some chassis of Packard Bell a little more upscale, but-given the selling price of the configuration-there is no reason to complain. This black and silver tower conceals a very classical optical drive bay by tilting. On the other hand, it is sufficient to lower a small door in front for access to two USB ports and headphone and taken the microphone. Small disappointment all the same: no memory card reader is present. It will connect to one of the six USB ports (4 back) of the tower.
However, the side of the keyboard and mouse, the reality is not as favorable. The keyboard, a wired model of PS2 is still classic. But the mouse is marked "failed".
A fairly quiet machine
Regarding noise, this iMedia D3610 is a small purring quite bearable as you hear only if prolonged silence. Otherwise, the moment you are working on some serious work and your attention is engaged, it becomes almost inaudible.
OK for office use and games
Tests reports that the iMedia provides the best support for the office. Although it is a processor of another time (Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2200 clocked at 2.4 GHz), it is judicious with 3 GB of RAM, giving it the power necessary for many office applications. In contrast, the video is to be avoided, especially when it comes to compiling your videos shot with a digital video camera high definition.
What will happen when it comes to some games? To manage the display of this iMedia input range, Packard Bell has opted for a processor Nvidia GeForce G100 (512 MB of video memory). The latter gets a score of 1763 points in 3DMark 06 and 4.8 to 5.9 on the performance index chart of Windows Vista. Therefore, we should not expect to run Crysis or Far Cry "at the basic settings." But if by chance you are one of the casual players who can play with a reasonable definition of image (in 1280x800 pixels or 1024x768 pixels, for example) and a level of graphic detail "average", then you will find doubt what your core desires, including recent games.
