This isn't such good value as this Dell Quad core for under £360

Are you sure about that Chris? Seems to be quite a bit of difference in the spec (hell, I'm even starting to think about putting my dislike of Vista to one side and invest in this one!)

Cmon Mike - what's your take on this?:whistling:

Are you sure about that Chris? :



Yes I am sure from my perspective but yours of course might be different. What are the differences?

1. With this you get a 750gb hard drive rather than a 500Gb. Scan price difference is £20. I could buy an extra 500Gb as a second drive when I had filled the first for £55 & falling most weeks.

2. With this you get a HD2600 XT graphics card. What can I say except that I wouldn't want it. It is not a good gaming card & for most other things won't do much more than the HD2400 in the other machine. If you play games I would upgrade both to something Dell won't supply. If you really really really must then you can have the 2600 as a £70 upgrade which I would not opt for. Value £???

3. 4Gb rather than 2Gb memory. Vista 32 will not benefit from more than 3Gb memory. For non gaming or video editing 2Gb may well be enough. 1 or 2 extra Gb memory is £18-£30.

Extra value is thus say £45 plus the graphics card whilst the extra price is £135. If it was me I would buy the £359 alternative & then buy a second hard drive when I had filled the first - which might be some time & prices are always falling.

If I were a gamer I would also upgrade the memory to 3Gb & the graphics card to say-

which I would want to do with either machine.
It is a little more money but if you play games like chalk & cheese.

Have I missed anything?

Much appreciated insight - and a lot of food for thought!

Add the 4 year warranty for £89 then you can apply the 10% code making the extra warranty only £40, not bad £10 per year :thumbsup:

Comes in at £495 with 4 year onsite warranty, thats with firewire card included
