As a Fujitsu Siemens employee, I feel I have no choice but to say this is a great deal!

Actually, it really is worth the money, comes with XP pro and is a reliable box.
#2
Slim line by who's standards?

It looks like a couple of years old so slim then, might not be slim now.

Not voted but could benefit students!

Technophobe question!

Could some one tell me what I else I would need to have this 'up and running'.

Is it just a case of keyboard, mouse and monitor ?

Thanks :-)

Jim.

That appears to be all.

This is quite annoying. Could have used this before I went and bought a few new things to cobble together a new PC for the g/f's dad after the PSU went and fried everything.

Nice one... good fine..heat and rep added

for the money, the spec aint that bad, but then you would need to upgrade, depends all what you going to use it for
#11
Not a bad price, perfect for most office work & email. I'd add a bit more RAM in though, you need 1gig for XP to fly.

3% quidco if new registration and first order from aria

It's about £105 including delivery.

OK it's cheap but come on, it's really not that good.
It's about fine if all you are doing is using MS Word, and Internet Explorer. Thats it.
40Gb Hard drive, most peoples mp3 players hold more nowadays, 512Mb of RAM means it will crawl.
As folk have said above, they have them in work, thats about all you could use it for. Its unsuitable for people who do anything else really.

stick another 512mb of ram in and it's a perfect web/email/torrent/video/CD-DVD burning box - which is all 70%+ of people use a PC for anyway.
#15
Obviously a good price for a basic PC but be aware there is no graphics slot AGP or PCI-E so you will be stuck with very low quality video.

Not much space for downloading though.
Not sure if it burns DVDs, just CD's i think.
And the 512Mb RAM might be in 2 sticks (looks like it in the photo but cant be certain), and there is only 2 slots, so need to buy all new RAM if you want more.
DDR1 RAM is expensive mind, like £30 1Gb, £60 2Gb, so add that to a likely Hard Drive upgrade since 40Gb is nothing especially for video or downloads.

Question to those knocking the deal - where can you get XP Pro (legally) under £80?

Actually I think it does come with an AGP slot according to the official spec, although it might be one of those low profile slots.

There is an AGP slot in the motherboard specs for this PC..

Wish people would look first before posting about something they know nothing about..:roll:

Indeed about the DDR1 ram, thats the biggest problem.

If you want to use a PC to seriously download stuff then you'll need to upgrade the HD no matter where you buy it from. Most places only stick max of 500gb drives in - better that you get a cheap 40gb one thats not too much of a loss when you remove it and replace with a 1tb drive (and 6 external 750gb drives ;> ).

To be honest 40Gb isnt even workable nowadays imo.
I have a 250 with XP and Vista set to have about 100Gb each, with a 500Gb internal backup.
My XP drive is full to bursting. With XP, Office Pro, bunch of others and of course Games.
Your better using the supplied drive as a main C drive, and installing a second large drive for downloading. 40Gb doesnt even work as a Main drive so its a waste, meaning it gets put in the bin, likely with the RAM as well.
WOuldnt use a 1Tb drive as a C drive, it goes and the lot goes, and constant downloading reading/writing is what will show up any problems.

Since the PC is a refurb, i assume the XP Pro is the same and came with it originally.
"Fujitsu-Siemens Windows XP Professional Product Recovery CD-ROM"
Not even totally sure its a proper XP disc or just a recovery disc that you get from some manufacturers, ie murder or useless if you upgrade heavily or try to put it on a new pc.
Might not be great, esp considering only 30 day warranty.
XP Pro legally is about £85 but then its new sealed to work on anything you want.

It may not be for your use, but 40GB is perfectly fine if you're not going multimedia mad.

Here, here. I’m still amazed by how many people assume that everybody has the same requirements as they do. 40GB stills goes a long way if you don’t have a multimedia library.

Nice of the 2 of you to ignore the rest of the thread where i said

HaggisHunter

It's about fine if all you are doing is using MS Word, and Internet Explorer. Thats it.


then. :whistling:

Try reading the thread and not just jumping in at the end with a daft comment or two at the end.
I mentioned it was useless as anything other than very basic needs.
And Multimedia use and my comparison, was in response to comments about it possibly being used for this purpose.

Also people do generally use it for multimedia nowadays, so you are guilty of assuming people have your own requirements.
ie they use it for Office and IE thats about it.
If you go look at the amount of people walking about sitting on buses with iPods etc, where does all that music come from?
Multimedia has become as much a part of computing as Office has nowadays, 40Gb might get you by, but i'd bet it wouldnt get most others by.
#26
This spec is somewhat similar to a dell pc i have and can say its ok for casual use such as office, internet browsing and the odd basic game (what most ppl use), Any intensive Multimedia archiving or gaming use then simply forget it, its just not up for it. For a basic pc you cant go wrong for that price especially if you have a spare old mointor and keyboard/mouse lying about.

Question to those knocking the deal - where can you get XP Pro (legally) under £80?

It's around £60 for the OEM version.

40GB is fine - most peoples MP3 players are under 20 GB, and even then I doubt you'd expect a power-house for £92.

512 MB of RAM isn't amazing, but this PC is £92 (!).

For me, with a triple monitor, Quad Core, 8800GTX machine, the spec is rubbish. For my GF, who uses her laptop for watching 4OD (rarely), Internet usage and listing to the odd song it'd be fine (her iPod's only 4 GB anyway).

As a Fujitsu Employee and hardware engineer, I must say these are very reliable........we have less of these in for repair than any other base's on our estate.......only major problem we have with them is the RAM spec and expansion space. At 512Mb of RAM it runs like a dog under XP when the user open's to many app's and you only have space for two RAM chips in total. All of our E600's come with two slots of 256mb, so you would need to upgrade if are wanting to run at speed.

Great price and spec for a reliable machine:thumbsup: Heat & rep added.

Come on Fujitsu:-D

I don’t think MP3 players are the issue as the most popular model is the iPod Nano I believe which has a small capacity and most peoples’ CD collections are small enough to fit on a 40GB drive alongside an O/S. Games and Videos are what tend to eat up the disk space.

I've got XP running well on both a laptop (128 MB RAM) and desktop (196 MB RAM). IMO, 512 MB should be more than enough. Just make sure there isn't any "bloat-ware" running on your system.
Good system...shame there's no CD-RW. Voted hot all the same.

EDIT: Looks like it *does* have a CD-RW?

Agreed. I've got 120GB on my laptop and barely 30% of it's used even when dual booting XP with Vista and having about 1000 mp3 tracks encoded at 192 kbps.

Download ubuntu or SuSe and you've got a workable system for around £60.

EDIT: Appears to be "trade only" chimerachris (if you click back to the previous menu) and price excludes delivery :(

Exactly. Comments from owners of flashy Bentlley GT convertibles who say this Toyota Aygo is **** are missing the point. Many people can't afford Bentleys, don't want to cruise the continent, and are happy pootling round town in this.

It say trade only at that price. For the non-trade the price is £99.

A good deal even though I don't need it - just wish my room were larger. This would be good for everyday use specially if added 512MB or 1GB RAM (which quite cheap these days).

Anyway, ONLY 3 LEFT at this very moment - 12:47 1/5/08 :-)

Anyone know how quite this is? May make a nice media pc with some odd bit I have in the cupboard....
#40
what about this one as well ??

for an extra £30 you get 160 HD, better processor, DVD writer & it looks like keyboard and mouse :)
