The operative words being "used to". I think Dell deals are fast disappearing. Still if you stick in an ATI HD4670 card for another £60 you've got a pretty good near silent PC.

Weaker Pound means that items are generally more expensive. Play.com has hiked the price of some memory modules by 25 percent lately!!!

If you need a base quckily and that is well built then this is a good deal. If you need anything outside the very basic operations of a personal computer this machine is not good value.

I got a Quad Core 6600 Vostro 410 for £237 a couple of months ago, always worth checking the Dell Outlet

Two comments:

1. What you use it for doesn't make it good value. It's being sold as a desktop PC and as such it is either good value as a desktop PC, or it's not. Now if it is or it isn't that is your opinion, but mine is that as deals on desktop PCs go at the moment, it is quite reasonable.

2. What on earth are you talking about when you say the "very basic operations of a personal computer"? Because this deal is for a similar spec machine to the one that is sitting under my desk at the moment and that has been flat out working for over two years as the main PC in my office running CAD, accounts, Dreamweaver, Photoshop and some complex specialist engineering software, not to mention office apps including big spreadsheets with pivot tables and graphics, and large access databases.

I think what you might be trying to say is that it won't be very good for playing games on, but please don't sideline what the rest of us use computers for as the "very basic operations of a personal computer" !

for same price, you can have better processor if build it yourself , i guess

I'd be surprised if you can do substantially better than a motherboard with 2.5GHz dual-core Pentium, 2GB RAM, 250GB disk, case, DVD writer, fan, keyboard, mouse, MS Works and Vista home Premium for £200 - but please feel free to prove me wrong!

Me Too!! Used the £50 off and free delivery voucher. Nice machine. Changed the PSU and put a 8800 GTS OC2 in and it flies!

Guess again - I used to build my own PCs but gave up when Dell started selling good quality packages at ridiculously cheap prices. It just didn't make economic sense to build my own kit, once I stopped blinging up my PCs.
The only reason for building your own would be to overclock it, because the multipliers on Dell motherboards are locked so you can't mess with them.
But for a pretty high powered good quality desktop PC you'd find it hard to fault one of these. I now own a range of 5 separate Dells, as I upgrade and pass them down the line, and they are all excellent pieces of kit. Especially if you put in something like an ATI HD4670 graphics card which costs you short of £60, and match it with a 22" widescreen that will cost a further £140ish. Total cost should be something short of about £460 for a machine which will easily last you 3 years, and will play most games at reasonable quality resolution without any problems.

You guys are right. I just make a quick bulding specs and it's nearly the same, but has no software. However, still a good reference for anyone interested in overclocking or looking for better components ( Mainboard, RAM, hard disk capacity..).

Processor Intel Dual Core E5200- £58
Motherboard Asus 5KPL-CM: £45 (7.1 HD sound )
RAM: DDR2 Corsair 4GB £35
Generic Case+mouse+keyboard: £30
Hard disk: Western digital OEM 500GB £53
DVD+/- Rewrite LiteOn £14

All prices from eBuyer, except E5200 from Amazon and the case from a hot deal (forgot which site it is).
#15
I guarantee that if you only spend £30 on a case (including power supply) and the keyboard/mouse combined you will NOT get anything like the quality of the Dell PC. The Dell mouse will be rubbish, and the power supply will be underpowered, but quality will still be in excess of any £30 case.
#16
I predict that Dell will be the next big name to go to the wall.
