That's an odd tower, all recent technology but not a lot of it... I think that's a good deal for people who don't want to play games :)
#3
I know it's £40 more, but the bigpockets PC has Vista already on, a hard drive six times bigger, a faster processor, twice the ram, and a dvd writer. You get a heck of a lot more for that £40, and the pc will last way longer. I can't think of many people today that never need to burn a cd or dvd.

Cold.

>48x CD-ROM

In fact this makes it seem like it does not even READ DVDs.

A big problem if you want to install Vista as it only comes on DVD.

I would say this lack of DVD reader is a good reason NOT to buy it.

p.s. I know you can buy a DVD R/W for less than £20 but it is more money to spend on what you have already spent.

Currently for £50 more than this from the Dell Outlet you can get an Intel dual-core with 2GB DDR2-667, 320GB hard drive, DVD burner, Vista Home Premium.
If you’re patient you’ll get one for less than that; I picked one up for a family member for £150 but it had a 250GB hard drive and Vista Home Basic.

Vista = nothing but trouble.

If I had a quid for everyone I know who has tried to replace Vista with XP on their new machines I could take you lot down the pub for drinks all round!

I was under the impression that this comes without any O/S! :thinking:
#8
No, but the deals mentioned by you and statto both have Vista as the OS which I would avoid! I know Dell are now offering XP on a lot of their new machines because of the demand (or rather the lack of demand for Vista)

The Dell deal is better even if you don't use the O/S so the fact that YOU don't like Vista is still not relevent.

For the record, I use Ubuntu. I'd still go for one of the Vista machines, wipe it, and install Ubuntu. Vista isn't too bad if you don't have to install it, so the biggest headache is done for you anyway.
#11
It is relevant when you have compatability probs with existing peripherals (because of driver issues) and software probs - why do you think so many people are getting rid of Vista?

It's not even as if you could just re-format the hd and install XP on these other machines because you still run into driver probs!

Another first class MS f**k up!

statto - Ubuntu is a different kettle of fish and you're probably right about wiping and reinstalling over with it.
#12
The 40gb hard drive, 1gb of memory and lack of a dvd optical are real concerns. It's good enough for surfing the internet and writing word documents but the lack of storage will catch up with you if you are interested in music. Forget gaming.

I'd completely agree there, the lack of a DVD reader kills this deal. Cold from me.

Why is MS responsible for the lack of driver support? I thought MS only made the generic drivers and ever other one came from the hardware manufacturers.

As for really good hardware compatibility, it doesn't exist right now. Apple doesn't provide it and Linux certainly doesn't provide it.
