SVP seem to be getting rid of some Dell PCS refurbished and with 3 year warranty. This one however is brand new.

I think the 3 year warranty is the most attractive part of this deal as I have priced up this PC on the Dell webiste to £265 Delivered - so if you order from svp instead of dell you can save yourself £55.05.

Other pc's are available as well but I have not priced them up.

I have noticed that hotukdeals get an svp discount as well but I am unsure what this would give off the product at checkout.

Quite agree I had Vista Ultimate on my Inspiron 6400, a few nice features but "weird" stuff happened all the time and it seemed sluggish so I "upgraded" to XP Professional. Much much nicer experience, looks more boring but at least everything is predictable - well as predictable as a MS OS can be. About the only feature I miss is the volume control for each application.

is it worth getting a dual core still ? rather than a core2 or quad even for this money?
#9
Only worth getting a quad if you are actually going to multi-task.

For most folks needs a decent dually is more than adequate.
Personally I'd buy quads but only cos I want/need more cores.......20 just isn't enough :-D
#10
Does it give you an option anywhere to change it from Vista to XP?

My parents are looking for a new PC but I think the strife Vista will cause them wont make it worth their while!

How old are you? You sound like Victor Meldrew.:roll:

There's nothing wrong with Vista and if you have it set up correctly it is far superior to XP in every way.
But you know what they say about a bad workman blaming his tools.......
#13
Both Vista and XP have their advantages, but the consensus amongst the technical elite is that Vista is not worth the hassle.
#14
can this play hd material?!
#15
Can it really be 3 years ON SITE warranty? This seems a little too good to be true.

Really????
I remember the same being said about XP when it came out.

Is this as good a deal as the Tesco Quad? Was going to wait for the 1hr window of stock but am quite tempted by this one! Good find sir :w00t:

i believe its around £259 with 3 years from dell as well.. i think the extra £50 would be dells stupidly high delivery charge

HD material such as?

What are Vostros like ?. I have just configured one up with a Q6600 and Vista Premium for £ 304. ( Free delivery if you spend over £299 this month, save £60)
#23
They only have one at this price and spec so I’m hesitant to vote hot. A good deal for the person that buys it though.
#24
The pc has integrated graghics, so I would think its unlikely to run game and HD properly, the processor could do with being a bit of a higher spec processor as well but is ok for most every day apps.
If its Vista 2GB is ok but more is even better :) hope this helps :)

Vista WASN'T very good until SP1 came out! But SP1 has fixed most of the issues people were having with it and I certainly stand by my statement that it is superior to XP.
If some software still doesn't work due to lack of drivers etc. then this should be blamed on lazy developers rather than the OS itself.

Don't get me wrong, I was a die-hard user of XP. I swore I'd never use Vista after what I'd read but I decided to take the plunge a month ago and installed Vista Ultimate. Very impressive!!!!!
#26
I must say that I bought a Dell for the first time a few months ago fully expecting to hate the pre-installed Vista and buy an OEM copy of XP to put on instead....but I have to say that Vista has really impressed me!!!

The only critisism I have of Vista is that I'm now back at square one learning how to tune the O/S, but that's more a critisism of generally upgrading anything rather than Vista (which I am more than happy with). And there are plenty of helpful free resources out there on the net to help you tune it if you so desire.

I was very happy with the Dell backup hard drive partition as well...a good little idea and piece of mind in case anything goes wrong. They've partitioned off a section (only about 12 Gb) of the hard drive and put a full copy of your O/S set up as factory defaults with drivers just in case anything goes wrong and you need to re-install from scratch.

This is the older CoreDuo cpu, which is a different beast from the current Core2Duo processors. It is a 32bit chip so no chance of running Vista64 on the cheap. Still, fine for a basic office computer.
#29
This is a cutdown core2duo rather than the old type coreduo (Intel decided to confuse everyone by releasing a cheaper range of core2duo with less cache and lower FSB branded as pentium dual core) It is 64bit chip and has same architecture as core2duo only has FSB of 800mhz and 1Mb of l2 cache
#30
E2180 is 64bit. It is basically a core 2 duo e4400 with 1MB L2 cache.

There is no older Core Duo for desktops, Core Duo was for laptops only and was a good chip but was 32 bit only.

I bought a Vostro 410 the other week. (Q9300, 4GB, 512 Graphics, Vista home Premium) and it has been performing nicely. Would definately reccomend one!

anything specific you wanna know, feel free to PM me.

You are dead right i know its sold out but after having read some of the peoples posts i cant help but say something as a network admin i here some real rubbish on this forum regarding PC's some nutter on here said that Vista is better than XP no sir its not you can run XP on 64mb of ram and a pentium 2 i know it would be slow but it doesnt change the fact you could if you wanted to.Minimum spec to run vista is massive and for it to run basic you need minimum of 1gig of ram and it crawls along with all the bloatware thats part of the O.S.

Everytime you want to do anything it asks are you sure and winges and moans stuff doesnt work right and there are still addons that you cant get drivers for. Dell stopped offering XP as a option but after all the complaints and people wanting XP they offered it again also microsoft was suppose to stop supporting XP very soon if not already but because people dont want to trade up they are continuing support last i heard it was 2013 no other O,S has had such a long run and is so well loved.

Microsoft have admitted that Vista has been a failiure there hasnt been the uptake from XP and people are still not upgrading the only way they are is if the buy a new PC and its preinstalled but most of those will downgrade if they know how me for one will be downgrading. My new laptop has vista on but im going to be putting XP back on because it keeps dropping its wi-fi connection and i know its not the laptop as friends and family with other makes of laptop but the same vista are having the same issue.

Running HD conntent as is wont work the cpu will be willing but the onboard graphics wont be i suggest the ATI 2400 pro that play have. Loads of my mates and me got them to run hd content on our media PC's and they work great they are suppose to be play.com's own but the ones we got where MSI silent (no fans) and the ATI does most of the running content on the card and they work great and at £17.99 they are a steal and score 3.7 on vista with the ATI auto overclock 3.5 without may even be alright for some older games.

The warranty is associated with the machine, not the buyer, so you've nothing to worry about. You can check the Dell service tag with the Dell website to see your service cover.

Our orders ship with picking lists that have no financial values on them. If you're a registered SVP customer (which you will be if you have the HUKD discount) and you go into your account settings you can also opt for 'unbranded picking lists' which hides the origin of the goods somewhat.
