Vostro 230 MT (D032304) (not Dell outlet despite what hotukdeals says)
Just noticed Dell have released a new desktop for the small office or home office... the Vostro's are fairly basic but work well. This new model can be ordered with free hard drive upgrades AND free onsite business warranty although these two look as though they're likely to be pricing errors. Go through the options and firstly the warranty choices have 3 options but 2 of them are at no extra costs, further on notice that hard drives (any upgrade) adds £0.00)
Remember Dell small business prices show as excluding Vat and delivery and you have to add to the basket to get final price but the base model is £216.20 inc VAT and Del. Home users can buy these, just enter "Home User" when asked for a business name at the ordering page. I've had 5 Vostros over 2 years and all been totally reliable and great for general tasks.
Good points: now has DVDrw drive at the base price unlike previous Vostro 220
Bad Points: 1Gb ram is too small and needs upgrading for £30 for 2Gb or do it yourself later.
Might be a pricing error but if not then it's a great deal... also watch out for Vostro 220MT's being flogged off soon to make way for this new model!
