and the one i found is a 2.8 ghz and is 159 with monitor have u got a direct link please
#3
Nicely edited from have you a direct link... :)
#4
Hot from me btw :) - worth it for a basic browsing/office works type PC.

Before all vote cold - this is what it is - it isnt a gaming machine, but it will do the basics for £70!
#5

upgrade the ram to 2gb, and maybe swap over the hard drive, sell whatever you have spare on fleebay and you've got a nice little system.

I think upgrading kinda defeat the point of buy this system. Not really their market.

Will do more than that. Should even work as a media centre for vids up to 720p.
#10
A 3ghz p4 is still a very good processor. Okay not a gaming processor any more ut for everything else it can still do the job. A small memory upgrade will make a very decent machine
#11
With 2GB of RAM and something like a geforce 6200 to decode HD video (it has a low profile AGP port) this would make an awesome iplayer machine for sitting under the TV.
#12
Thanks OP.

BTW - specs say it has a gig of ram rather than 512mb, might wanna update the first post. :thumbsup:
#13
Does it?

"Ram

Installed Size: 512 MB / 2 GB (max)"

I can't see where the 1GB is written.
#14
It's a good deal, wghcih I would vote hot, but having dealt with this mob previously and had bad experiences (and ending up with 3 diff "new" pc systems all of which had diff faults) I would not buy off them again. Have therefore abstained from voting :)
A good price if it works out for you

I think the 1gb ram version is an extra £10.

doubtful, unless you change the graphics card anyway
#17
excellent little rig for parents/ grandparents to get them online at least. Or a good choice for retro gaming through emulators if that is all you need.
#18
Mentions "XP Pro" but doesn't seem to give any further info about if it's included.

A few people have asked on the BP site, so should get an answer soon.
#19
Just put Linux on it for free.
#20
Would this take a full size agp graphics card (about four year old ATI AIW 9200)? Also I think extra Ram for these older PCs is quite expensive compared to the newer RAM.

If you look at the link you will see that the unit is 9.5cm high...

nah, I have an old P4 with onboard gfx kicking around. It will just about do 720p but I would not recommend using it for HD out of the box (720p will stutter for a few seconds and then stream fine but RWD or FF causes a stutter period again).

Unexpired

Well it arrived in a very grubby case and without a power cord/ lead. So i cannot connect it to the mains to switch it on.

This is the first time I have ordered from Bigpockets and this is not giving a great first impression. I created a ticket to ask them for a power cord.

Raid your kettle. ;-)
#26
The lead from my kettle would not really work would it?
1 Like #27
Yes it would, if it fits. What wouldn't work is the other way round - a lead from a computer plugged into a kettle - because kettle leads are designed to withstand higher currents and temperatures than computer leads.
#28
Ok cool, had a reply from bigpockets too.

Its as follows

unfortunately no power lead is supplied with this sorry

OMG then they should state it so you can buy one at the same time the fools!!!!
It was the first and shall be the last time I order something from bigpockets

It was a £70 PC....you really SO flummoxed over a 50pence item?
#30
Show me an IEC mains lead that you can get delivered for 50p and I'll be flummoxed too.
#31
Its costs 50p at loads of places.

Fair enough not including delivery - but the point stands whether it is 50p or a couple of quid.

MOST (OK, not all) people have shedloads of these lying about as well.
#32
Point is I did not know it was going to arrive without a lead. It was not mentioned in the specs at all. So I did not get one. If I had been forewarned that there is no lead then I could have bought one at the same time.

Now I have to wait for a new lead to be delivered before I can use it. Thats crap cust service.

I live in a very rural out of the way area its difficult to get anything down here and its annoying to have to wait again for delivery of a lead I did not know I would have to get.

All I ask is to be forewarned so I can be ready to use my pc, as it is I am v frustrated as I have an item I cannot use yet.

And there is the point.

Your fault for assuming on a budget second hand item quite frankly.

When someone buys a computer online they would expect a power cable to be with it unless it been stated it wont be with it. Put yourself in his sitiuation you'd be a annoyed too and dont say your wouldnt.

Really? Google can't find them for less than 99p

Exactly. They would probably cost Bigpockets 50p to sling one in. I'd expect it, second hand or not, to come with a mains lead unless stated otherwise.

Edit: Marky264 - very well put.

Er...

dont be ridiculous.

Your opinion may differ. But dont be a **** and tell me I would be bothered. I absolutely, categorically, couldnt give a **** if a power cable didnt come with a PC.

I would do what (I assumed) most people would do, and just go buy one for a couple of quid.

I have more important and better things to do with my life than get stressed and irritated over something so insignificant - especially when I have got the thing at a bargain price anyway.
#39
Got one of thr £79 ones with 1gb last week, arrived in a few days, and works fine so far (touch wood!). It asked me to activate the XP Pro, but the COA label is attached to the PC and this worked with no problems.

Doesn't look the prettiest (remains of a sticker on an air vent, but no issues at all- I didn't assume there'd be anything except the unit for that price, and had leads and keyboard/mouse ready!

XP was up and running straight away, and it isn't too noisy, so very pleased with it. It shows it's age with a floppy drive, and another drive i'm not sure of!
