cant find this on their website
#2
Click on go to deal and it will bring you to it.
#3
Optical Drive Blu-ray Compatible Yes

It comes with Blu-ray?
#4
Im guessing thats a yes or at least its compat with blu ray
#5
When you click on the options to but them seperately the monitir is £119.00 and base unit £499.00, so I guess together as a package at £349.00 this is a very good deal :roll:
#6
I had a look at this and it looks quite a good spec together with a good monitor for only £349 Was the original £499 & £119 a bit overpriced to start with ??

Is it a real bargain ?? for £349 ?? Be grateful of comments
#7
Nice..
#8
sounds like really good value to me :)
#9
This is a blinding deal.

If you were to factor out the cost of the monitor then the machine is only £250 and it's seriously doubtful you'll find something of that spec anywhere for the same price.
#10
Same spec PC when customized on the Dell website themselves came out at £639 for me (excluding any discounts Dell may be doing) including the Blu-Ray Drive if that's accuate or £559 even without a bluray drive so VOTED HOT from me
#11
I can see this getting hotter than the sun.
#12
Will you be able to watch DVD's on this ok ??
#13
Yeah this looks like a great deal to me.
CPU = £100
Graphics = £50
Hard Drive = £50
RAM = £30
Monitor = £100
DVD RW = £25 I don't think it's blu ray.
Then you are getting the rest free: case, PSU, Motherboard and you don't have to build it yourself!
#14
Are there any bad things/components on this pc ?? The monitor appears to have a good write up on the Tesco site.
The graphics card sounds ok but as I'm not into heavy gaming, I think this will be ok for my use.
Just having a think before pushing the button !! Don't want to buy on impulse !!!
Thanks for any help.
#15
Is the gfx card on this any good for Photoshop work?

Don't need it for gaming, just graphics stuff.

Thanks.
#16
I see this is not wireless built in, how easy would it be to enable it, with a dongle or similar?

Well, they've got one less than they had a few minutes ago.

It seems a great deal. I've just brought a new base unit from Comet for £303, but luckerly haven't opened the box, so that'll be going back.

For the price, you're not going to get anything better than this at the moment.

It should be fine for Photoshpping - the ~CPU does most of the work.

My 6 year old PC edits video just fine! Unless you mean HD video, but this computer will handle HD stuff just fine.

As I've said on other threads, until a few weeks ago I was running Photoshop CS3 on my previous system, an Athlon 2800 with only 1GB of very slow RAM, it took a bit to load, still only about 30secs and it did struggle a little when rendering etc BUT it was more than usable.... this should be great....... better be cos I've just ordered!!!

MEGA thanks to OP, this was just what I've been looking for since missing the ALDI £384 unit by umming and ahhhing too much!! You're a star!! :thumbsup:

#25
This is a great deal
I have been looking for a new PC for about 3 months, and there hasn't been much around
This ticks most boxes and is a great price....
I have one on it's way to me now !!!

As a system builder of 13 years, I can tell you that this is a great buy. Not only in terms of the price of the components, but also the quality of the components, along with the monitor (albeit a it's only a VGA and not DVI connection). Yes, you can build one cheaper, but that's missing the point, as if you built one then you'd still have the price of the operating system (and MS Works) and not everyone can build a PC from components and load the operating system, drivers, software etc.

Just a quick note, it would cost around £10-£15 to put a wireless PCI card in the PC, although you could of course use an external USB wireless stick if you don't fancy fitting an internal one. Also, just be aware that Dell systems don't come with speakers normally so you may want to check this out before you buy. You can pick up some half decent budget speakers for around £10, or upgrade to a 2.1 set of twin speakers and a sub-woofer for around £20.

Voted hot

Got to agree, I think that people are still influencedby the 90's when hardware was evolving on a DAILY basis. Unfortunately I got stuck in this era with a "top of the range" Pentium 3 450 system with..... wait for it... a whole 256mb of RAM (anf integrated graphics!!). Cost £1800 and within 6months would not run new games as the developers constantly adopted the newer technology, essentially forcing upgrades all the time.

Now however, PC's seem to have stabled off, yes if you want to play brand new 3d epics like Crysis you will still need to upgrade but for the rest of us we can rest assured that this sort of unit will probably die before it becomes obsolete. Of course this isnt guaranteed BUT if my old PC hadnt giving up the ghost (or I could get a reasonably priced Motherboard to replace the blown one), I would still be happily using it daily for Video, Photoshop and Office etc..

Basically, get this deal, it looks great to me...... collecting Monday (unless its a cancelled misprice of course!!!) and I can't wait :-D
#29
Cracking deal.

Thanks amcol.:thumbsup:

Heat added.

At £349 I think this is a misprice on the Tesco site.

On the same Tesco site they have just the system unit for £499, see here

Cracking deal, but i dont need a monitor i use mny plasma tv.
Any ideas how much i could sell this monitor for, anybody want a monitor and want to buy it off me later :)

Thanks To Op cracking deal, dont forget quidco too :)
#32
Very hot, good little build that.
#33
Any vouchers for this?
#34
Forgive a silly question:

If the monitor is VGA only, doesn't that mean no HDCP and consequently no blu-ray movies?

Surely this wont be a big deal as you can change the graphics card for one that has got DVI on it for less than £50 if you REALLY needed to and it would stilll be a great deal :thumbsup:

As far as I know it will have as it has a dedicated graphics card (256MB ATI® Radeon™ HD 3650) and not just a built in one, so if that's the case then yes it will have. In fact, most of this model of graphics card have twin DVI ports which makes me wonder if they are supplying a monitor with a DVI connection after all, or just an DVI to VGA adaptor along with the PC.
