Not a bad PC for that price at all.
You can buy it from PC world without screen for £329 also.
#2
I've been on the lookout for a decent desktop PC for my mum. Is there anything better than this available at the mo. Looks pretty good to me.
#3
build your own ^^
#4
never buying an acer again.

build your own ^^


Put together a quote for the hardware and if it's ~£50 cheaper than the desktop, i'd happily build it.
#7
good price.

Theres always one who has to chip in with this :roll:.

I swear that if someone posted a deal for a top of the range XPS system for £100 SOMEONE would still post the old "you can build it cheaper....." line!!

Lets remember, not EVERYONE can build their own PC, IMHO its a stupid thing to say and helps no-one (unless you are going to pop round to each house and build it for them free of charge of course..... but thats not likely is it! :roll:

Would definitely consider this if I hadn't been lucky enough to order the Tesco misprice the other week, good deal, heat added!!

It's only cheaper to build your own if you don't value your time.

actually in this case it would be better and possibly cheaper to build your own

not really a big fan of the acer pcs
#11
But thats YOUR opinion (probably based on one bad experience!?!?) and as I said, NOT EVERYONE CAN BUILD THEM THEMSELVES!!!! THEREFORE, posting such comments does not help them!!

I've fixed loads of PC's and I can honestly say that NO brand is exempt from trouble or failure, most problems are user related not hardware, if you cant (or cant be bothered to) build your own this IS a good deal :thumbsup:
#12
If you are capable of building your own PC, then you would really be a mug to buy this.

Not only can you hand pick your desired components, but you can perform a nice clean OS install from scratch.

Start with a good PSU and case, and you'll be in ugrade heaven for a few years too.

This is now £297 without the screen but i cannot find any stock in London dam as this looks ok.

It takes like 5 minutes to build a PC you must be busy making stupid replys yeah good use of time.
Its a good value PC but I would never buy a desktop PC my self

Building your own PC is for mugs.
#16

thats right, and my opinion counts, not purely based on the fact of bad experience but there are other factors

NOT EVERYONE CAN BUILD THEM THEMSELVES!!!! THEREFORE, posting such comments does not help them!!

it helps them from making a mistake :thumbsup:

im sure you have but so what thats you, in my books this is not a good deal, there have been plenty of great deals in the past from tescos, such as the cheap dell quad core systems :thumbsup: and even from dell themselves :thumbsup:

also that processor is not really great in majority of intensive tasks just because its a quad core doesn't make it good, and its going to feel a little strangled considering you probably wont be able to clock it anyway but thats another story :thumbsup:

anyways it would be good to see who actually buys this pc and their experience with them

It takes at least 30 mins to install the OS. I,ve built my last 3 desktops, I dont think the price difference between building your own and buying off the shelf is that great any more. Personally I wouldnt build any more. Heat added.

I have to agree with a few people on here. Building your own PC USED to be a good way of saving money when PCs where all £600 + for a system. Now a days I honestly believe that an individual will struggle to buy components and an OS for less that what Dell or Acer can sell them.

When you buy a component...say a processor you have to buy that from a retailer who is making their profit on the price. Dell and Acer are the 2 biggest manufacturers in the world and can therefore buy in huge bulk from AMD and Intel direct for the best price. More than likely, a lot better price that the retailer who is selling home PC builders their componects.

Of course there will be the odd occasion when you can still built a like-for-like system cheaper, but when the big boys like Dell and Acer come in with a low price..............self build is simply not cheaper anymore.

What Tesco misprice? I have miss out again? I've been looking for a cheap desktop to play Sims 2 and 3 (when it comes out) for my daughter for ages.

I've just checked through this site and can'r find the thread. Is it still around do you know (if only to make me even more jealous :-)?

Cheers

This has now expired no stock that i can find from london the liverpool ???
#23
This build your own arguement is a little silly. You build your own for quality more than price nowadays. It also seems kinda daft to build your own if you're after something with a £400 price band.You could build the same spec with better quality components for probably £50-£100 more but I highly doubt you could build the same cheaper as companies buy in bulk and therefore pay less per component and individuals buy singularly and so pay more. It's only once you get to the sort of £800 mark that you begin to save but you do save BIG provided you know how to put it together and install the software and make sure to use anti-static gear.

Its a cracking bit of kit (no doubt you could build it cheaper :roll:) however, the fact that Tesco put it up to nearer £600 by the end of the week suggests it was a good deal!!

Totally agree......and I'm still waiting to see a component for component priced list of the whole system from the people who say it can be done cheaper or its better to do so.

I can build a pc too......so what! who gives a ****!!! The point is this a good system for the money. If you think it can be done on an equal basis like for like then post it????:thinking:
