Heres the link again:

Be careful the image illustrated for the A225 Speakers on Dell's site are not the actually speakers that will be shipped....

Here are the speakers that will come with this system:

not many people have voted on this, how good is this deal?
#4
Rather dissappointed... the same item WITHOUT the speakers and anti virus reached 200c :-(
#5
It is a good deal as before. However, I'd really rather not have the McAfee and would uninstall it so the speakers are the only difference for me.

Still trying to justify it to myself. I know I want it but I'm not sure if I actually need it right now, plus I bet that as soon as I buy it, a mega-bargain will turn up 'cos that's my luck really:-(

Also, I really like the look of the LG monitor in the other thread so I'd love to get a deal on a Dell without the monitor

An awful offer - a low price - but you get what you pay for.

If you can afford to pay more - which you should be able to - pay more for quality - :x

What - and you are a dell lover?

I'm speaking from experience.

I have held off of buying Dells, all my life (Both for business and home use)

But I bought this when it was on the 22" offer - and all I can say is that I am disgusted that any company can produce a system with such pathetic performance. The monitor was pathetic as well. I can afford to buy a higher quality system from any manufacturer that I want to - and I can certainly afford a monitor that offers better picture quality.

So - I returned it. And now have a system of much higher build quality and specification.

So, as you eloquently put it, in some people's eyes I may be a "Dell-hater" because I do not recommend this system (In fact when I ordered, I actually upgraded the processor, so I dread to think what this one would be like in its default configuration). Oh and for your information mikerr specifically - I am a Dell shareholder, so I believe this is an entirely honest opinion. Overall I recommend if you require a system that offers respectable performance, you purchase from another manufacturer.

Just my own opinion for you all.

Regards.

My mistake, sorry. I was thinking of the one posted a few weeks ago :oops:

Upgrade to a 22" monitor for £29.38 almost as good a deal as the one before which included a 22" monitor.

You really are a complete ar*e if you make postings like this and don't give details of your "superior" purchase from another manufcturer and why you submit that this Dell system is so bad:p

So you admit you have almost no experience of Dells yet are happy to slag them off, you have loads of money yet you come on this forum to buy a really cheap PC then complain that it isn't fantastic, and you claim to have bought a PC of better build quality and performance elsewhere.
I would challenge you on build quality. I own 3 Dells, and have bought another half a dozen for other people and the build quality has been superb on all of them. Certainly miles better than the HP, Patriot and Medion rubbish I've seen in the shops, and way better than any PC I've built myself (and I've built a few of those too).

Any chance you can tell us who your new PC is from and what your new spec/cost is?
#19
The whole system is pretty good apart from the 7300 it is really a bottom end card so dont expect to game the 20" screen will be a better panel than the 22"

You would be hard pushed to build that pc with off the shelf parts for that price
#20
You get what you pay for - if you buy a system with specification below what you need then you can't blame Dell for it.

I'm a fan of Dell, I've worked with them extensively (a couple of thousand of them on site at my current job) and I've found them to be generally well built and reliable particularly their power supplies which I've often found to be a weak point. I also like the fact they are generally easier to maintain with quick access to the various components. My XPS 2 with its 6800 Ultra is just about to hit the two year mark with no problems unlike it's Clevo rivals which generally suffer poorer reliability as their cooling system is nowhere near as good.

Hi

Why is the 20" better than the 22"?

and is it worth the upgrade

256MB ATI® Radeon® X1300 Pro PCI Express graphics card [add £17.63]

Thanks

In your eyes I may very well be an arse.

I won't lose any sleep over it though. Good to know I evoked a response out of someone I don't even know.

My advice to you is just to keep working hard. Keep on posting.

I have almost no experience of Dells... We'll leave that at that.

With regards to buying a cheap PC, I don't think that by buying a cheap PC I should be unable to run Windows smoothly, and run standard office applications without a hitch. I'm just like any other consumer really - I expect the very best value for money I can get, and I'm afraid Dell made me think that I was getting good value for money.

With regards to the system that I have now purchased for myself - it is in fact a HP system. Suffice to say it is more expensive than the Dell, with a specification that is actually quite similar, but with a world of difference in performance and build quality. But as I've said, that's just my opinion.

And by the way everyone learn to relax!

So a system based on Core 2 Duo processor clocked at 2.4ghz backed by 2gb of RAM - isn't enough to run Windows Vista and simply run Microsoft Office? Really, you think that is a system with a specification for below my needs? For God's sake, please don't infer that I'm blaming someone else for a mistake that I haven't made. I don't think that I made a mistake at all, and for this reason I would prefer it you kept your comments about me not blaming someone else to yourself.

And I can very easily understand why your place of work has a couple of thousand Dell machines - for the very simple reason that they can sell your place of work a system for a lower price than anyone else in the world. I'm afraid that's the cold harsh reality of the real business world - when buying in bulk for ordinary desk, the price is the only consideration - not the quality of the components etc, neither is the technical support and service a consideration, because companies buying in bulk have people like you to support their systems.

I bought the base unit and monitor separately. The base unit that I bought was an m7775. I can highly recommend it.
