good price and thanks for posting but I suspect this is a one off

Also get ready for the 'i can build this using silicone, aluminium and plastic for cheaper'

Monitors probably £60 of value, Windows another £70 of value, so the tower probably works out at under £120 so its a great price

Ok for a net only machine. Processor is pretty poor and graphics has no support for decoding HD video. So if your after a basic nettop with a built in DVD drive then it's ok. Otherwise I'd look at the Acer Revo deal.
#3
Excellent value.
#4
Good price for a basic machine.
#5
Might be nationwide saw the machine in the Basingstoke store, think it was the same price as listed here, but wasn't paying that much attention.

good price
#7
Is it play doing the DDR3 mem sticks, well worth a cheap upgrade.

Yup...

Pretty sure the 6150 includes purevideo decoding, although I sold my 6150 board way back before dxva decoding was implemented properly in drivers.

Seems good value for anyone looking for a solid basic machine which includes a monitor, so hot from me.

good for internet browsing or using basic programs like office. But probably better to spend that sort of money on a cheap laptop instead.
#10
That's a good price for everything included, cpu is a bit weak though, Voted Hot!
#11
Board and CPU are really poor on this. Memory is most likely 2 x 1GB sticks so thats bad for upgrade as bet board has only 2 slots. So long as you dont expect much, its an ok purchase.
Probably better of getting a better base only machine and hooking it up to your tv tbh or getting a decent 20" TFT for £80 or so.

I also saw this in three different Cardiff stores.

It did indeed support first gen purevideo but doesn't support decoding of vc-1 or H.264. An update to the 6600 gave it partial decoding. It wasn't until the next gen that vc-1 and H.264 was fully implemented on the G84/G86 chipset. Full support is from 8400gs upwards.

The real downside is the the CPU which is more of a nettop grade processor. The advantage you do have is that it's socket AM3 so you could in theory upgrade the processor. Im sure the PSU could handle the extra 25w to power a Athlon II x2/x3 'e' series processor.
#14
Really good value
#15
Might pop into one to have a peruse.

Thanks
#16
Not bad value but if you don't mind a bit of DIY the Ebuyer basic system with bundled Win7 is still available at 180 odd quid:-

EDIt - whoops, I missed the included monitor bit, OK this Asda deal is very good value then if you don't need the latest & greatest machine.

Not bad. You can change the processor & stick in a graphics card for about £80 & it would be a half decent gaming machine for little money. You'd make a bit selling the original processor aswell.
#18
Anyone bought one of these, how noisy are they? I'm looking for a cheapish replacement PC for the living room, but don't want one with excessive fan noise. I was thinking about the mini acers, but haven't ruled out a cheap desktop.

Know of any mate post a link for me
#20
I voted cold, before I read the info.. in the picture there isn't a monitor, but at this price with that included it' s a steal.
#21
Thanks for all the comments.

I've now taken the plunge and bought one. It seems to get good reviews and looks good. Now I'm going to set it up:3
#23
i saw few days ago - excellent value; great compact size. may buy if they are still around in a few weeks. i love asda deals; usually far better than the sain-tesco-morrisons lot.
#24
These were for £200.00 @ The asda in Capehill. But they'r finished, so don't bother trying.

Damn, this is so hot - just what I need too - can't get one anywhere around here

Bought this box only at Comet in September for £245.00 approx. I looked around for something around £300, but this machine is good for the price, but probable not for gaming.
The company who makes it are Acer, there is a restore option on the hard disc, with the option to burning a suit of recovery discs.
A bit of advice would be to partition the hard disc to keep all your files safe.
