Edit-

Just seen this response from Big Pockets on another forum



We are describing these as new. They where manufactured by Iqon for a major supermarket chain but Iqon went bust. We have been asked to dispose of the stock. These are essentially brand new units which have been sitting in a warehouse. As with all Bankrupt stock they are covered by our no quibble money back warranty.

#4
What a freakin sweet deal!
#5


good god, there are times when they should let a product speak for itself, and this was it.
#6
Is this a refurbished PC...if so can you put it in the title.

Thank you.

Note the condition: As New...does not state new. Warranty is much less as well. So no I dont think its a sweet deal.

BUYER BEWARE!!!

I dont think I would use the word awesome, average maybe. This is bankrupt stock with only a 3 month warranty. The company IQON went bankrupt so you will get NO support at all.

This is "old" technology. The Pentium D 925 is not a "proper" Dual Core processor and is about 2 years old.

One forum said about the Pentium D 925

>This chips is not recommended for any new computer purchase.
>Perhaps if you are buying an older used computer for browsing the Internet and some light office work it could be OK.
>This is not considered a modern processor by any means.
#8
You can add a year warranty for £30
#9
I have a simlar processor in one of my machines, and find it fine! TBH for 170 you aint going to get much better else where!

anyone?
#11
thanks for the info guilbert53 and I'd just talk the mrs round but I'll be staying clear of this one:( There is some good Dell deals around with 1 yrs warranty aswell.
#12
I don't think these are refurbs but part of the bankrupt stock they have

Almost certainly not.

Very few Desktop PCs come with wi-fi, and this being a very old model it will almost certainly not.

thanks.. what does LAN mean then?
#15
good for basic computing tasks but an old processor which runs hot and uses quite a bit of power.

good value at £170 though if thats your budget:thumbsup:
#16
Does anyone know what bigpockets return policy is like? and do you have to pay to return the goods with bigpockets? Cheers blinder:)
#17
i just dont uderstand why peopel dont build computers it easy and would still work out cheaper
#18
LAN = Local Area Network
#19
Bigpockets have a NO QUIBBLE money back guarantee on all of their £2m bankrupt stock clearence

Mr Hunter;1746209
LAN = Local Area Network


Which means it'll have the plug for a wired network. As do 99.9% of desktop PCs sold nowadays.,

I don't think this deal is great by any means but I don't think you could build a PC for this price with a valid Vista Premium license. Perhaps you could list your components and prices....?

#23
D925 is a rubbish cpu...
#24

good god, there are times when they should let a product speak for itself, and this was it.

#26

#27

Of course you wouldn't build it but that was not my point. My point was that you cannot build it cheaper when you take everything into consideration.
#29
It means it has an Ethernet port. They were on sale in Tescos less than a year ago so not as old as some are saying. I reckon it's a good buy if you price all the individual components. No use for gaming but fine for everything else :)
#30
I enjoyed the videos so thanks for that! They seem like a fun company to work for.

Though I always build my own machines, it's only worth doing if you've got a bit of knowledge of computers generally. So the guy who asked what "LAN" stands for really shouldn't go straight to an selfbuild ;-)

It just doesn't make sense for a lot of people to invest the time needed to learn what they'll need for a PC (and the two/three hours to build it) when they can buy something from Dell so cheaply.

Oh, and you'll usually spend just as much on a selfbuild, the advantage is that you're getting exactly what you want/need.
#32
Sweet!!!!

HOT!!
#33
i personally think this is a brilliant deal . but ! the dell machines are much better specs for not a lot more !
u wont be able 2 build a machine of this specification for this amount of money .
this isnt bad ! but i would personally wait till dells easter deals !
#34
Can the CPU be changed ?
#35
yes but most likely not to a Core2/Pentium Dual core.

>Perhaps if you are buying an older used computer for browsing the Internet and some light office work it could be OK.


It would be more than ok for browsing the internet and virtually ALL office work.

It is an older processor, but for a basic PC it is more than adequate

Absolute rubbish.

Show your figures - based on components similar or better than used in the PC shown in this thread.

For about the same price (£170-180 delivered) you can get a Dell Inspiron 530, 1.8GHz Intel dual core, 2GB RAM, 250GB hard drive, Vista Home Premium, DVD burner with a full 1 year warranty from the Dell outlet store.

The Dell’s a Core 2 Duo based system and would have a good upgrade path, be cooler, consume less power and probably be quieter. Cold for me.

its £210 Mate (dell inspiron 530)
