Hi, my name is wendy and I have been told this is a great site, so am hoping someone can help me save a few pennies.
My parents are in their 50's and are looking for a new PC, it will be used for surfing the nett, sending the emails and storing family photo's.
I bought my computer from PC world but was bullied into spending £800 and I dont want the same to happen again.
I dont know much about computers but think £400 should be a reasonable budget. If anyone knows of a decent buy please let me know, your help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help.

Google for dell outlet and look at the inspiron 530 machines
There's some on there currently for £250ish (you have to add VAT)

They'll be fine for what you need
fantastic, thanks for your help.
Sorry if this is a sillyquestion but, the spec says it doesnt come with a modem, my parents have virgin broadband, will they need a modem?
nope, you'll connect to the Virgin broadband via your ethernet connection.

You'll need to get a monitor seperate though.....plenty of offers here or on the Dell main site.

By the way make sure you choose the Inspiron 530 and NOT the 530S machines.
Dont forget 4% Quidco on Dells...minus VAT & Delivery charges though :)
I've shown my mum the Dell one but she has found one at PC world. Its an Advent Eco PC with 19" TFT
Its £399 so is within budget and I could collect it for them. Do you think it would do the job ok as the Inspiron 530 goes up from £279 to £369 when you increase the memory.

Thanks again for your help
Pc World, Acer computer, 399 reduced from 499. My dad has the exact same one and is very good.
