After struggling to decide between a desktop/laptop for uni, I have decided to get a desktop due to the fact that they provide much better value for money in my opinion. My budget is about 500 pounds.
I was originally looking at http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=93584
this Dell, as with a monitor and all the bits I'd need it works out at about £500. However, when I told my mum (the kind purchaser of the new cpu) she said she would much prefer a buy-now-pay-later (eg. in about 6 months) option, which Dell doesnt offer without charging a **** load of interest (About 20%).
I would ideally like something with similar specs, but which can be paid for later. Its a long shot, due to MikeT's deal being such a good one, but does anyone have any reccomendations?
Edit: upgraded the deal in the post I mentioned to a E6750 processor (2.66GHz, 1333MHz, 4MB cache).
