You can deselect the trial AVirus software and save 1p ;)

Saves you having to remove it once it arrives.

Seems odd having such a small hard disk. But probably a good deal for the average user.
Agree with taking the antivirus off. Use AVIRA free - much better.

Excellent PC for the non system builder, just add a graphics card and your away.

Shame you can't get rid of the monitor

What a load of rubbish!! Give us a link to your source for such cheap parts... I looked at the cheapest of the cheap components at ebuyer and it comes to £439 and that is without Windows 7, building it, im sure i missed a few essential cables, and keyboard/mouse

Agree with you on this one , there is no way you could build a complete system / monitor / os for this money , not like for like anyway

I ordered that system. Not too gutted that its now a fiver cheaper :roll:

Just be aware that estimated delivery is four weeks. Voted hot.
#13
how on earth can they sell it so cheap!!
I have been looking to upgrade my computer lately and it just seems cheaper to buy a new one lol, gone are the days of building your own computer, it's really not cheaper anymore! at least from what I have seen.

I find it annoying if you want to buy an operating system and a new monitor it would cost near this price, may as well buy a new computer lol
#14
I got Dell desktop for 5 years and its very noisy now, will this be good replacement?
#15
umm, but for £407.10 you don't expect HDMI. :?
and how is it a 'crap processor'? - give reasons, or just STFU
#16
Haha so funny......you are more foolish than the fooliest fool on fools day in fools town

This is a business website with equipment for business - yes it can be modified for home use but to be honest this is primarily a PC intended for business use.

Not sure I really want my staff watching HD whilst they're working. The screen res is more than adequate for what I need and the screen is only costing £70 extra for my needs - (unless you know of a cheaper 22" screen - then please share) - this is a good deal.....


.. and that's what this site is about



Seems the comment from the poster has gone!!!! - AndyWedge at work - nice one

Yes, it is as plain as day, most of us that built PCs in the past worked that out a few years ago, yet you would be surprised at the number of people who still can't see it! :thumbsup:

Yup, I ordered 2 of these on the previous deal (grrr!) and have £35-odd tracked with Quidco.

Pish and tiffle. I've been building PCs for myself since the days of the 486 and you couldn't get within £100 of the price of this when building a similar spec yourself and equipping it with a legal copy of Windows.

Prove me wrong with some links. Remember to include P&P :)

Yes, I only built my pc about 3 and a half years ago and at the time it saved me lots of money in the long run, I always kept up to date and made sure I knew prices and as the years went by it just seemed cheaper to buy a new computer and I think that is what I will do instead of upgrading and then use this machine as a spare, unless the prices are a huge difference I don't plan to build my next computer.

I guess you also built in your own spell checker for that price, then? It might account for your lack of command of the English language......:whistling:

By the way, please build one to these EXACT specs or better for half this price, and I'll take it off you.

I'd imagine it's a great relief to those people in India that THEY don't have to speak to YOU...... it took me 5 minutes to work out what the heck you meant, then I realised it was rubbish anyway.;-)

With the monitor having a price around £177, the base is a nice price at around £230 (cant split).

But a 22” TN panel screen with a 1680x1050 resolution and a 1 year warranty is hardly worth £177. You can pick up an LG 22” 1080P monitor with built in Freeview, HDMI, Scart etc for about £190 and that comes with a 3 year on-site warranty. I’d say the monitor is worth around £100 at most which puts the PC at over £300.

building days aren't gone yet. at this price range they definately are dead! but now the core i5 is out and can be clocked to 3.6ghz with ease, the building days are still about at a budget price. it is better to build than to use dell if you are looking for a system around £500+ without monitor. i just looked and i can build a good core i5 system with 4gb ram and a 500gb hdd and 4870 for roughly the same price as the cheapest xps (check tht spec on website). you do have a valid point and did get me thinking but i just posted this so that people with higher price points dont think the same and get ripped off somewhere down the line :). not a moan just help :)!
also this deal is very good!! i hope i can get my dad to order it for my bro before it runs out :)! hot!

Hey, I just had a quick look at the cheapest XPS and it was £569 inc vat, did the machine you try to build come close to this? - I agree if you can make a machine with the said parts then that is better, the hard drive size is 1TB in the XPS I seen, and I think the hard drive on yours is small for machines these days (even though I would rather get a 500GB than a 1TB, as I just do not use that much and would prefer 2x500GB if anything).

It had the same ram, a 512MB ATI® Radeon™ 4850 Graphics card not sure how good these are, I have only used nvidia cards. It didn't come with a monitor but did come with an OS and I am assuming if you built a spec up it didn't come with an OS...

Like you, I'm not moaning, or disagreeing with you, I do still think building can be good, and there is a need for it but the way deals are going lately they always seem much better to buy a whole new pc, I'm not sure what I will do come the time I want to upgrade but one thing is for certain I will keep an eye on prices and deal websites such as this.

I'm glad you replied though as I like to hear opinions on these things, I recently tried in the past year to put together a system from the parts of a full system been sold and it always came out higher than the full system been sold before I even added an OS but hopefully the building days will rise again, I have noticed RAM prices have gone extremely high, at least some models, my DDR2 ram costs around the same as some DDR3 which I think is shocking!

Anyways I will hold off upgrading for now but I am not for or against any method, as building the computer is also fun, call me sad maybe but I like it when I put a computer together, and then see it working and can say I have done that! haha

Obviously not worth £177 if selling on, so can't really be allocated that value within the cost of the build either.
I had a look on ebay to see what price this monitor was fetching and I only found one on site under 'E2210' which was brand new and boxed with a 'buy it now' price of £139.
I'm not so sure it will sell at that price. :)

The main reason to build your own pc's nowadays is gaming or as a hobby, not saving money.
With modern graphics cards the PSU's they put n these Dells, even the base range XPS's can not or can just barely accept the top graphics cards. and the top end gaming dells do tend to cost more than building a system yourself.
Plus overclocking is limited with these set systems.
#32
I bought one of these and have decided it is not for me. Dell are refusing to take it back under DSR regulations, stating that it was bought from the Business section of the web site.

I am a consumer though, so I don't see how they can avoid their legal obligations to a consumer, just by saying their site is for business only. I have a call in to the OFT to check on this, but does anyone have any real insight into this?
