Not one that I would want myself, but cheap for what it is, especially with 19" monitor.

Note also that quidco @ Dell is based on the price before delivery and vat, so you'll probably only get quidco on ((235 - 60) / 1.175) * 0.05 == £7.45.

Bringing the system to £227.55.

Voted hot! The monitor alone is worth £100!

Agreed about processor/video however for a basic spec for a kid's school work nought wrong with it.

There's an option to change Vista to XP Home,

throw in 2 gigs ram yourself (£40) and perhaps upgrade to the dual core for £23 quid more.

Then you have a fine computer.

i would go with the 22" dell screen, if you already have a screen you plan on using, you can flog it on ebay for £200

I disagree with the above comment - for a budget PC I think this is one of the best we've seen in a while.

The Celeron processor has just been re-launched - now just a single core version of core2duo based on the same speedy Conroe architecture.

Definately want to consider upgrading to at least 1MB of RAM but considering the 19" monitor would set you back nearly £100 you're getting a fully functional office PC for £150 - try building it yourself and I don't think you could do it.

Voted hot.

don't think you can rely on getting that much. There are two listed now BIN £178.88 delivered, and there are bound to be more listed after deals like this get delivered... perhaps bank on getting in the £150 range after listing and selling fees?

EDIT: in fact, having looked at recent sales on ebay compared with monitor costs on this deal, you might get more profit by buying a 19" widescreen, Sells in the £115-£130 range delivered

Does Vista need 2GB of memory..? eek! We have a 900MHz athlon with 512MB memory and windows XP at work and it's fine for our small business needs of accounts, internet and word processing.

Maybe this isn't going to be of much use to gamers/professionals but voted hot as this is great value for money for 'normal' use e.g. internet, young child (or whoever) to learn on, with the XP option I mean! I'd be tempted to get one for work but it's just not needed - "if it aint broken, don't fix it" :)

[THIS MORE FOR THE BENEFIT OF OTHERS, AS I AGREE YOU DON'T APPEAR TO NEED A NEW SYSTEM]

1GB will work fine on vista home basic - the 2GB comes in handy for all the extra eye-candy that the other editions of vista use. Vista can also be made to work faster with a series of easy tweaks (see a post of mine earlier today that links to a couple of good sites).
#13

I think Microsoft recommend a minimum of 1Gb.

EDIT: Just double-checked. For Vista Home Basic they recommend 512Mb. For all other versions it's 1Gb.

Bumping the memory up to 1Gb (or more) would be a wise move anyway, I think...
#14
£235 !!!!!

HOW CAN ANY OF YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS UNIT!!! This is a basic home PC for internet surfing etc.

19" MOnitor - HOT HOT HOT... WELL DONE JEEVAN!!!
#15
What do you want for £240? I paid more than that for a 19" panel a couple of years ago!

Also you can have the wireless logitech keyboard and mouse for an extra £5 which is good value if you want one.

Those two monitors have VAT to be added at 17.5%.

So you're looking at just under £210 delivered.

EDIT: In fact, the cheeky scamps are looking for VAT to be added onto postage as well! So at £178.98 that becomes £210.30!

My laptop runs Vista 1gb Ram 1.8 processer works fine. :)

Why do people keep slagging of these basic cheap does what it says on the tin PC's,

My 5yold 1g cel base unit still does most things fine the onboard graphics is currently the weak point somethings(games) need features not available so they get run on the £300 1.5g cel laptop which is a bit newer(18month).

These PC's will do what most people want well enough.
#20
Also some people are overlooking the 1 year BUSINESS warranty ... For a machine of such a low price that is a great warranty to have!

I would probably buy one myself but I already have 4 Dells :thinking:
#21
has any1 gone for this?
any discounts?1
#22
This may be a basic PC (by today's standards - 3 years ago this would have been a pretty good spec) but for a great many people who only want Internet, Word Processing etc. capability this machine is a FANTASTIC BARGAIN! Stick in another 512MB of memory and you have a box which will keep most home users happy for at least a couple of years.
#23
as i only use my comp for the internet and music downloads, i just bought this and upgraded to 1024mb and added the dell speakers for £5 and it has cost me £258 its probably more than i need for what im going to use it for but for that price i dont know how anyone could say this is a bad deal

voted hot cheers op

yes, looks good but no free shipping - has that gone now it's the 15th? or is there some way of getting?

APOLS: I wasn't using your link - now showing free shipping. Cheers.

Thanks for pointing out Gaz. That is cheeky - I hate these sellers who hide VAT iin the description!

This deal D08V01A appears to be still current at £235.07 today so looks like it may run for another 2 weeks.

I have a 1.6ghz Celeron M with 768MB RAM, 128MB shared graphics by Ati and I ran Vista Premium with full Aero experience easily. I think MS has been rather generous with their requirements for Vista...
