The Dell GX280 is a mid-to-low end desktop PC designed (at the time of release) to provide average consumers with a cheaper and more affordable option for an up to date computer. The GX280 features a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processor, 1024MB (1GB) installed DDR RAM, a 40GB hard drive, and a DVD-ROM drive of varying speeds depending on the particular model. The GX280 includes additional options such as a 1.44MB floppy disk drive, 8 USB ports, integrated video, audio and ethernet controllers on the motherboard, and a stylish black mid tower case.

The GX280 comes bundled with a copy of Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 edition. The GX280 was released in early 2005, and it is worth noting that with the advancement of technology today computers are almost nearly outdated the moment they are put on a retail shelf; this makes the GX280 old (relative to age) in the world of computers.
