You really need to correct the title of the thread becasue it's a great deal at £235 but the title says £325. This is probably as good as the HP deal that got very hot last week, only slightly more expensive but bigger hard drive and intel instead of AMD for those who have a preference for Intel.

My dyslexia again, Thanks fray bentos
#4
what is the vostro range?any difference with the inspiron etc...
#5
Would you buy this over the dell deal even though it is a bit pricier?
#6
It seems to allow an upgrade to Hard Disk to 500Gb for £5.88 - seems good value!
#7
Very good deal if you want just the base unit.

But with monitor not cheap.

In Sept I bought this model with 19" flat screen and 256 graphics card for £352.

Be aware the Vostro 200 takes normal sized graphics cards, but the 200S is the slim version so only takes half height cards, this limits your choice somewhat.
#9
is there any disadvantages with the vostro over the home pc ranges

thanks
#10
This is £50 more than the dx2250 from pcwb posted a couple of weeks ago, I assume the only difference is c2d over athlon x2? Maybe the psu is better on this one? Any ideas? If the psu is better and the c2d is worth at least £30 more than athlon then I may get one of these.
#11
does any1 have one of these,is it quiet

i know some1 with an dimension e520 and it is virtualy silent,would this be similar

the dx2250 from the other deal is virtually silent but then it has a not very powerful 250w psu so that's probably why. Not sure about this one, I guess it has a more powerful psu so would be a bit noisier.

Having bought several of these vostro's and inspirion's can 100% recommend them, virtualy silent but for me the AMD models win out.
The only problem is dell over charge for any extras you might require ie: monitor etc etc.
delivery can also be abit slow 2/3 weeks in some cases coming from Ireland.
#15
I quite fancy one of these machines.

What I'd like to be able to do is stick it in my loft and fill it with hard drives-what are the chances that I would be able to do that with this model?

Does anyone know how upgradeable they are when it comes to adding hard drives?

Ta.

Voted Hot btw. :santa:

Altough a very nice PC it is small form factor and not suited to massive hdd upgrades due to connection/heat problems, but thats just my opinion. I would think a NAS box would suit your needs better. Depends on your needs.

Am I right in saying you could chuck a decent pci express graphics card in this and have a half decent gaming base unit?

Yes you could, the only problem you may have is if the new card draws too much power you might need to change the PSU.

Any idea what the psu is Mike? And is the c2d worth £50 more than the athlon x2 64 5000?q
#20
Sorry this is off topic but does anyone know if I bought one of the Vostro Slim Towers I would be able to put one of the Pioneer Blu-ray drives in and be able to play Blu-ray discs? I'm looking for a machine that I could use my hdtv as a monitor.
#21
Why are the monitors so expensive? I thought they was around the £100 mark for a 19".

If you get the seperately yes, that's where they make their profit!

The vostro 200 manual gives the psu a 300watt rating, usually the dell psu's are underrated so will go maybe 350watt without problems but you can fit your own if you wish/need too.

Manual for the 200 is here
Some links to cpu specs tables are in my blog sidebar.

This is where you need to be smart with Dell pricing, say you want the base with a 19" monitor, buy the base then go to the monitor section of dells home site and buy the 19" separately as today its discounted to £136 there with 3yrs warranty.
If you bought it in a package with the vostro 200 base it would only have the 1yr warranty of the base unit.

Thank you soooo much. Maybe get this package for my parents.
#27
Seems to be a great price, especially with the 500G upgrade.

Any chance that this could be delivered before X-Mas?
[mod]#28
I think that the chances of getting any Dells ordered now onwards before Xmas are pretty remote, sorry.
#29

Can you give me a link for the monitor at £136.

Thank you.

Edit OK - just found one in silver - looking for black now.

[mod]#30
Black is £163....I would go for silver with black stand for the cost difference!

Yes, we are a bit short on stonking Dells at the moment, Thursday is update day and who knows what that will bring bargain wise.
I suggest you keep an eye on the deals that day and if anything better comes along you can always cancel and reorder. Be aware I think no deals will be delivered now before Xmas.

Thanks mike, not overly bothere about a xmas delivery, its just the kids really struggle with this heap of junk, but watching the deals aint helpful to someone who knows naff all about computers, i could have brought a fair few by now, but never sure its a good buy or its going to do what i want it to:oops: But again many thanks for your help and best wishes to you for xmas and the forthcoming new year:santa::santa:

WARNING - Don't buy that!
The 19" TFT for £136 is a poor bargain. Instead buy a HP L2045 20" TFT for £140. (I can't find the link at the moment, but it is somewhere on HUKD.) I have one of these, and it's a great monitor, with much higher resolution than the Dell 19" one.
[mod]#37
While of course we all value other members opinions I really dont see the need for the Daily Mirror headline type face.

Of course there are other deals available, but consider that some may want a Dell monitor to go with a Dell desktop and the 19" is the best deal in that respect atm.
#38
Whilst I am in rant mode, I wanted to add RAID 1 to the 500GB configuration. Anybody have any idea why Dell charge £152.75 for adding a 500GB hard disk to the system? Also, upgrading from the base processor to an E6750 costs more than the new price of the new processor, so Dell are not giving any allowance for the old one.
Does anybody know whether there is enough space in the case to add a silent graphics card, like this one: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/126985 ? These take up quite a bit of space because of the passive heat sink.

Thanks for that I have ordered cost under £384 with the monitor at £136.

GDB2222 - ordered before I saw your post but the system will be fine for what I want and at under £400 for the spec is very good.
