Over £400 if you want to add windows XP....
#2
Find me the same deal on dell for slightly over £400 with xp
#3
£66.89 for xp? 316.00+66.89 = £382.89. Am i missing something
#4
You are not. And Dell would be close to £500 for similar specs (although 512 graphics card) and three year warranty
#5
seems a cracking deal to me!
wats the chip like? i normally prefer intel
#6
Looks nice
#7
Am I missing something here?

I've just configured what I regard as being a pretty good pc for just over £300.

How come this deal hasn't become scorching hot yet?

Thanks for your efforts op.
#8
Look pretty alright to me
#9
XP pro is over £100.... its xp basic for only £68

Look at other deals on here where people have got a Dell with this chip, 8gig ram, 1TB Hard drive and graphics card for only £323 delivered...

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/428941/dell-inspiron-546-base-phenom-x4-97

There are better deals out there, it is just catching them...
#10
This is a hotter deal than the Dell one that people were kicking themselves for missing.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/428941/dell-inspiron-546-base-phenom-x4-97

Here's a breakdown

CPU
There is a tiny difference in performance between the Dell chip and this one. - http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

Graphics
The Dell gfx card is rubbish compared with the one in this deal, or you can remove it an just use the integrated graphics and pay £40 less.

Memory
No-one's going to notice the extra 4gb that the Dell offered.

Hard drive
500 gb here vs 1tb in the Dell

Warranty
3 years here vs 1 year with the Dell

PSU
Confirmed 400W here as opposed to 300W in Dell specs

This is a hotter deal than the Dell one that people were kicking themselves for missing. The GFX card is much better, and you won't be waiting until 13 July for delivery. Plus there's a three year warranty instead of Dell's 1 year.


The graphics card is'nt brilliant even if it is 1gb... yes the warranty with dell is less, but at least dell is a multinational company selling thousand of computers a day / week, where as this is probably just a couple of lads building computers in the back of their shop / house... how much is a 3 year warranty worth if the company making the computer for you goes out of business in 6 months time...

I know who I would rather trust...

Oh and by the way before anyone buys one from here you had better read this...

There is a post half way down, basicaly Dino PC used to be called Golden Electronics, here is what they say....

its sad really. golden elctronics have ceased trading.....changed their name to dinopc so now us poor old golden elctronics customers have all lost our 3 yearwarranties.
Keep away. I dont know where the hell they got all their names from saying what a great service, they havent been trading long enough.
Theyare trading from the same address and havechanged name because theycant keep up with the barage of complaints about their rubbish product and worthless warranty.
Buy from anywhere but these jokers.
I am stuck with a 900 quid dead machine,

But read the posts that follow about the useless customer service, the delays because of out of stock items...

This was posted on the 28th April 09

"Stay away from Dino Pc, i ordered my pc on 1st april arrived way too late on 17 April, with a box missing. So today is the 28th day since i paid for the computer which has not arrived complete, we are unable to use it as there's 1 box still missing. I ordered this for a business so i really bad decision. I rang them last monday 20 April they said the missing box will come on 21, no box on 21 or 22. Called them agin on 23 they said will be despatched on 24 so i should get it on 27. Waited all day called them again as it did not arrive was promised it will arrive today by royal mail. royal mail do the next day service before 1pm.. Guess what no parcel. I am really fed up by know so i have opened a dispute with pay pal to get the full refund."

Tell me 3 online companies that have great customer svc? I'm yet to come across very many at all. There's always going to people who are put out by bad svc or had something unfortunate happen with their order, then 80% of these people write about it on the net. Most people have no problem, just don't broadcast it.

I'm not saying they won't or aren't a problem cos they are small and some people post bad things about them. But how many people got stung by MFI going under or how many people moan about Dell. :)

Hmmm, I know which one I'd rely on. The cheapo 400W jobby may well be rated at that but unless it's a respected brand I wouldn't believe a word that written on the label.. :whistling:

Wish they'd publish the weight of PSU's, that would be a laugh.

Look at our new shiny 700W PSu that weighs a whole 100g. :-D

PSU's are definately one of those items that should be judged by weight - the heavier the better

Wow, these look like great deals. Does anyone have any experience of this company? I've not heard of them before.

Could always download Windows 7 RC for free :p

Cold.

i'm looking for all the components to build myself a pc at the moment....

basically if you are gonna put a pc together yourself it will cost the same as this, but given the mixed reviews on the company itself and some of the components offered with this pc I wouldn't bother

most of the bits used on this are on ebuyer and play.com have a look and decide for yourself

In either case I would always advise buying with a CC. Gives you another avenue to pursue sould the company go out of business, or decide to be difficult.

Hot. Good price for an decent GFX card and quad core ;)

I was going to say the same thing, you can dl Windows 7RC from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/download.aspx and its free. And the best thing is it lasts until June 2010, so almost a year. Just done this for my parents new pc, its a dam site faster than visa.

Save yourself £68 odd quid.

It may be free until June 2010, but you really need to re-install it before the 1st of March... due to the fact that as of the 1st of March the release version starts closing the computer down every 2 hours... and I dont know about you but that would drive me up the damn wall...
#27
The price of this computer comes up as £251.70 plus £15 delivery =£266.70!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is this very very cheap for what you get and you can pay with Paypal , so the payment is safeguarded.
Sounds a fantastic deal to me.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

That is because you are looking at the basic spec, without the graphics or Operating System!!!!!!!!!!

I've just had a quick price-up because I'm genuinely interested in this. I can just about put it together for the same price (I think I was about £10 more) but I can't find any 3 year warranties against any of the parts. And I'll have to put it together myself (which admittedly, is half the fun!)

Yes, you would'nt get the 3 year warranty on the individual parts, but looking at previous comments on their customer services is that warranty even worth the paper it is written on??

Or get a free version of Linux, save yourself £68 odd quid and actually get some use out of that extra RAM instead of it all being swallowed up by the operating system, it will support more than 4Gb as well and can actually make use of it, I think Windows also fails on this too? Oh yeah and proper 64bit support with proper 32bit backwards compatibilty has been around on Linux for years. Plus, since Windows 7 copied the look of the KDE desktop you'll feel all special if you're a Windows fan boy.

I'd rather trust the couple of lads building computers in the back of their shop/house. Never liked Dell and I know a lot of people that don't. If you like to add to your PC and things anyway then who cares about warranties? If a component breaks after a year, upgrade it, it will be out of date by then anyway. I've never returned any computer equipment under warranty so I really don't care about it, it's not something I consider when buying things, if it was broken when receiving it then fair enough but a year warranty is all you need.




But yeah, I'd rather build myself.

Well depends on the user, my parents only use their pc for emails, banking and photos. So its never on for very long anyhow. Suits them just fine.

But yeh for me, it would be very annoying.

You can always go for pre ordering Windows 7 home premium for £49.99 from 15th july for a FULL copy direct from microsoft. So you can use Windows 7 rc for a few months and when you get the FULL copy from Microsoft in October you can then put that on.
I am using Windows 7 RC at the moment ,it is alot faster and very stable.

Thats another bonus with Dell... with every computer purchased after 26th June they are giving free upgrades to windows 7 as soon as it is released, so you get your computer with vista, but when windows 7 comes out they will ship you a free upgrade... I bet Dino PC dont do that...!!

I bought a PC from DinoPC about a year and a half ago (xmas 07), no problems at all, good service and price. Would use them again.
