I have a friend who would like a desktop PC and has a budget of £300. Has anyone any suggestions please? She already has a monitor.
Thanks

Hi. I've had a quick look for you and so far I think this is the best deal:

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=104337

It's the only one I've found under £300 that has 512mb of RAM. Would be able to have a better look for you if I knew what your friend wanted it for??

Probably better off getting a Dell offer without monitor or with 17" CRT. They're around £230 I believe and have Windows XP installed etc. Today's Dell offers will be updated soon...

Thanks Flint for your reply. I've had a look at the one review for the one you suggested and it wasn't very reassuring. My friend just wants it for emails, internet surfing and possibly for creating birthday cards etc.

Get the £299 dell laptop non?

No new Dell deals today??

So, Here's a Dell one Dimentions 1100 - E-value code UKDHSONL-D02116 **Enter code here**

Processor Intel® Celeron® D Processor 325 (2.53GHz, 533FSB, 256k cache)
Operating system Genuine Windows® XP Home Edition
Memory 512MB RAM (Was 256MB)
Harddrive 80GB Hard Drive (7200 RPM)
Monitor 15" Analogue Flat Panel Monitor (15.0" v.i.s)
Network Card Integrated 10/100 NIC
Graphic Card Integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics
Sound Card Integrated Audio
Optical Drive 48x CD-RW/DVD Combo Drive
Service 90 Day Collect and Return (CAR) Service

£289 Includes VAT & Shipping.

** remember to change service to 90 days collect and return to reduce the price to £289.

I know this has a TFT monitor but sell one of them and make some money back :)

Thanks, this looks really good. Does it include a modem? When do you think this offer will finish? The Acer Aspire SA60 which has good reviews is a similar price without the monitor from ebuyer but the RAM is half so presumably it is better to go for the more memory of Dell.
Thanks.

Not much new on Dell 50p so they were low priority :)

That £289 deal was put up last night though...

It does have a 15" TFT salthepal, so if you don't need it I'm sure you could put it in the local paper and get £50 or maybe more for it.

Although the delivery charge will go over budget I think it is worth it - Athlon 64 3200 £299 ex delivery:

Or put it in the for sale and trade in HUKD...

Er... no! :oops: you would have to add one £11.75 making the full price £300.75p (Ooops 75p over!)

When do you think this offer will finish?
it is due to end 01/03/06 so you have a few more days thinking time :)

Thanks everyone. I shall give her the details of these deals and hopefully she will come to a decision soon. A local PC repairer has told me he can get a Packard Bell with 512 RAM refurbished but really new for £300 which is another option.

Packard Bell Athlon XP64 3400+ 1GIG RAM 200Gb Media Centre PC DVDRW

Price:£264-00 PLUS VAT @ 17.5% = £310-20
