for who it's for is irrelevent...can put this wherever you want, just depends on what you want it to do....It's very low end, so don't expect much, and with vista? hmmm, would be much better with XP.

Yes, too cheap for my liking, although for 30 quid or less you could fill up the ram. I personally would want to buy something a bit more highly specified.

A case when cheapest is not necessarily the value option perhaps.

How is it that on all these Vostro deal links the price includes VAT and delivery, how can I make it so it's like this when I'm browsing the business site?

This will run Vista Basic absoultely fine, its Premium & Ultimate which require much higher spec. Basic is far from demanding.

Hot!

Because if you click on that link, it takes you to the home site.

Thanks, but when I go on the home site it's impossible to view the Vostro PCs.

i have one of these for the kids and they are ideal for upgrading as the motherboard in them is the bearlake chipset its a same spec as the p35/p45 chipset i think its the IG33 chipset i cant remeber exactly but it supports 1333mhz cpu and more than likely will support the new 1600mhz with a bios update and i think it should also support 1066mhz memory the one in mine is a foxconn i did all the homework when i had a spare core2 and was thinking of putting it in this and i was very suprised when i ran the tests and it told me what motherboard it was its obviously the same board they use in there higher end systems with the quad and the E8xxx series cpu.

I have a media pc with a brand new asus IG33 motherboard and it supports all the new stuff so this should be the same its a ideal base unit if you dont have the know how to build from scratch. Also i had a spare 4gig of 800mhz geil ultra performance ram and it worked fine in the dell.

I wouldn't put wireless anywhere near children, but this will be a perfect computer for children who want to use the internet, watch movies, listen to music, copy DVD's/CD's (with the addition of a £10-£15 dvd-r), do homework etc.

If you plan on keeping vista on it I'd stick another 1gb of ram in it, or better still putting XP on as another user recommended.

i got mine when they where doing the offer last time and it came with xp on it and it works great i mean its not as fast as my selfbuilt but it didnt cost the best part of a grand either i did install one of those MSI silent 2400pro graphics cards so the kids could watch HD movies but even with 4gig of 800mhz ram it didnt have the ********.

I dont know if the guy whos asked about COD4 running on this is taking the **** (i hope he is) but this is no gaming rig.

Why?

Good spec base model machine imo, perfect if you already have a monitor/keyboard etc lying about already. Although it's still not fantasic it might be worth considering the £35 upgrade to a dual-core processor just to make things run a tad smoother if you're considering it as a kids computer (i.e. surfing, movies etc will benefit from it especially if they like to do more than one thing at once!)

nice spec this spec pc on pc world is 200 quid so at this price its a nice deal

There are some way better deals on the dell website at the moment... Make sure you checkout the small busines section because they are cheaper than the home section...

Also, make sure you look at the advertised promo deal on the website VERY CHEAP!

No, but it'll work with a few upgrades.

For best results at a budget, I'd get this Dell Vostro 200 for £172 (remove monitor). Compared to this, it has a dual-core CPU, 2Gb RAM, 160Gb hard drive & a DVD-RW.

Then I'd get a minimum of a 8600GT 256Mb with DDR3 RAM for ~£46 delivered (choose Super Saver), e.g. Inno3D 8600GT 256MB DDR3. As this PC's unlikely to have a PCI-E connector from the PSU (unless someone confirms otherwise), any other equivalent/better card that doesn't require this connector will also do.
