I found this on the Dabs site on Christmas Day, and wasn't that impressed until I checked out the specifications on the HP website - http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c01479763&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=3677047
- Amazon.co.uk - http://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-Pavilion-A6430-Athlon-Phenon/dp/B001GJDV1E
I ordered one, and after a slight delay (due to me not giving enough-address information), it arrived today. Very impressed, for the price! £349.99 + £8.48 delivery.
(I forgot to go through Quidco, but that should give an extra 3% off to get £339.50 + £8.48 delivery).
The Dabs specifications are sparse, so here are the specs as delivered (and from Amazon/HP):-
- AMD Phenom processor 9500 (this is a quad core, but not a very good one)
- 3 GB DDR2-SDRAM (upgradeable to 8GB if you buy 64 bit Windows separately)
- 500 GB SATA 3G Hard Disk Drive (7200 rpm)
- NVIDIA GeForce 8500 with 512 MB dedicated memory. HDMI and DVI out.
- Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit
- Wireless keyboard and optical mouse
- DVD writer SATA DVD RAM and Double Layer supporting LightScribe technology
- Ethernet 10/100BT integrated network interface
- IEEE 1394 FireWire® Interface
- 15in1 memory card reader
- HP Vista Media Center Remote Control
- TV (analog and DVB-T) tuner card (single tuner I think)
- 7.1 Sound output
- No monitor
This probably isn't as good a deal as the BT Shop (=Dabs) Acer Aspire refurb posted recently, but that's out-of-stock and at the time of posting, this is in stock.
I got a Vista Experience rating of 5.2 (due to the cheapish graphics card).
