I got a similar spec one for £8 more and came with a monitor two weeks ago.... (ebay 110667514280) this is ok, but they do have better deals via ebay

The price is good, and Win 7 64bit is nice, but that processor is pretty creaky, check out the following cpu benchmark tables:

CPUBenchmark

x2 220 scores 1700 approx, compare that to the modern day mid-range i5-2400 that's over 6000.

It could be a false economy to save a few pennies here if you're looking for another new one next year???

Thanks for info will bare mind before buying.

I suppose ... on the other hand, I'm 99% sure that's a pretty standard AM3 configuration you could make do with a X2 220 for the time being with a view to swapping out the processor for a x6 in the future?

The only thing with the ebay Currys/PC World refurbs is that they only give a 3 month warranty with their products. However, I have ordered a refurbed laptop from them recently and it was in pristine condition.
