looks good, with business vista, so maybe better than your previous post. Although i think the Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13, is better/faster than the AMD 5000?

The 20" monitor looks good too, although does ultrasharp make a lot of difference?
[mod]#3
I have both normal and ultrasharp dell monitors here and do prefer the ultra, having said that the normal is fine too if you dont want to spend the money.
I spend too many hours in front of mine so the ultra is prefered.

Cpu speeds are about the same, depending on what application each will have an edge somewhere over the other.

Gutted, I bought one about 3 weeks ago with a 19" and only 1gig ram for £50 less. Tempted to try and shift it on ebay and go for this.

That is another cracking deal Mike.

Just off the top of my head if you were to buy parts seperate the processor £180, ram £140, monitor £200+?, and Vista would cost over £600.

So in reality you are getting a free 320gb hard drive, free dvd writer, free motherboard, free case, free graphics card, plus mouse, keyboard?, and Microsoft Works thrown in.

You are right, and don't forget that it is assembled, delivered and comes with 1 year warranty on the whole thing...

hmmm, Vista business does not have Windows Media Center?

Also Mike, will this offer stay around for this week/longer?. I know Thursdays is new deals, but will this one still stay?
Do you know Dell's cancellation policy, so if i ordered today, can i cancel tomorrow?

Is it me, or is that graphics card a bit weak?

I bought almost this identical spec from Dell Outlet last week (minus monitor but at only £380 with 250Gb HD) and thought I had a real bargain ...

The machine certainly looks brand new but I am wondering. The hard drive has a very faint (but clearly audible) tinny rattle when in operation and the machine is sooooooo slow. I timed it to take 20 secs from clicking the IE icon to having a (blank) web page on the screen.

Called CS who gave me a lot of hooey about how it is caused by too much software loading up at startup and telling me how to disable this. I follwed all instructions (including setting the HD on quiet mode in the boot sequence), but with no improvement at all.

Am I expecting too much ?? I cant imagine so and am pretty sure that there must be a HD issue.

I have told Dell that I am exercising my right to a 7 day refund. Does anyone know how Dell deal with the freight charges ? I assume I get back the original delivery charge but have to pay for its return to them. All in all very disappointing.

As I write this I am thinking I should perhaps give them the option of sending a replacement ....

That depends what you want the graphics card to do?

Yes it is weak in high end gaming terms. But if the graphics card is the only thing putting you off then just take it out and put a decent one in. The fastest card you can get for £100 is the ATI X1900GT. This will still keep your costs down and give you a smacking good PC. Then sell this one on eBay for about £35 or so.

After all they are giving you the graphics card for free in the first place.:thumbsup:

I take it this was from the Dell Outlet store and not direct with Dell yeah?

Are you sure you got exactly what you ordered? Sometimes they have a habit of leaving something out, i.e. only 1gb of ram instead of 2gb.

Did you get a windows operating disk with it? If so I would format it then see how it goes, as it's a Dell Outlet PC it could have loads of crap running in the background or the hard drive could be cluttered with files all over the place. Also install a small file called CPUz (google for it). this will tell you what is in your system, you can then check the specs to make sure it's what you ordered.

Thanks for this. Yes it is an Outlet machine. I ran Belarc Adviser and it is the correct spec. Also I ran the various options to disable all the programmes running at startup and cleared the prefetch files. I have a feeling that it is connected with the faint hard drive rattle. It did also crash (blue screen) when I first started it and started up Outlook Express, which does not promise well for the future !!

Anyone know what the standard delivery time is for this system?
