Seems like a great price to me, though personally I'd go for the X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ bringing total costs up to £372.49. Upgrading to 1GB doesn't seem to be an option and 2gb is £141.00! Go for 512mb then order some from another retailer, maybe even a pair of 1GB sticks.

I can't understand how they can offer 512MB memory (included in price) with Vista:o
#3
To force you to spend a extortionate amount for the 2gb upgrade. :)
#4
The 1GB option is at the bottom for an extra £47. It'd still work out better buying elsewhere.

Looks like a pretty good deal to me though.
#5
Ah didn't even notice it, though 2GB was listed twice so I guess they're still tweaking the revised order process.

Have Dell stopped offering Windows XP with new systems?

I'm trying to track down a new PC for my Auntie and this would have been idea, although I'd prefer to go with the Dual-Core upgrade and Windows XP, but they don't seem to offer it with any new PCs anymore. :-(

It looks like they have (although selling Vista with PC's which will barely run it with some setups is stupid)...you might find something on the Dell Outlet page running XP though.

If you go through the Dell Small Business site, it gives you the choice of XP or Vista - but remember that the price it shows is ex VAT and del. There's no reason why anyone can't order through the SB function, though :)

I wouldn't buy any PC without at least 1GB of memory if it is going to have Vista on it, and if you are going to play 3D games you'll probably need 2GB. However this PC only has Vista Basic which most commentators say isn't worth having, so you might want to pay the extra £17ish and upgrade this to premium.
The C521 PCs from Dell are also very thin which means you cannot insert a full height video card in them, so if you intend to do this at any point in the future I would go for one of the E models.
Personally if I was buying a Dell at the minute I'd go for one of the Core2Duo 6300s from Dell Outlet store.

Yeah that's pretty much what I was thinking. She's only going to be using it for the Internet, word processing, banking and stuff, photos and DVDs so no games or anything like that - pretty much the above spec would be ideal if only it came with XP rather than Vista. I don't trust it, it's the first release of a new OS so will undoubtedly be filled with bugs, and if something goes wrong with XP I know how to fix it myself, something I don't know with Vista.
