Yeah they give 3 months with refurbs but it's about 40% off so well worth it.... You couldn't build it for this price with a legit copy of win 7.....

you could also buy warranty from pc world from the money you saved which would be cheaper if you really want it. i built my own about 8 months ago, nothing hi-tech and it come to just over £400 excluding monitor, ms office and inc everything else, so this price is a bargain Voted hot!

Wouldn't this make a pretty good XBMC machine?
Since the processor (not the video cores) will be sitting at about 10-20% while playing HD video it could probably also get away with doing other tasks like downloading or file-serving at the same time.

I wonder how quiet/energy efficient it is?
#12
What sort of usage is this PC capable of? Is it aimed at your everyday internet user?
#13
can anyone help me with these questions?
would this be better than an acer revo to use as a media pc attached to a TV?
does it have a wireless network card?
#14
Does this have WiFi built in????
#15
looks like its a small form factor, added bonus.
i had been on the look out for a revo r3610 or r3700 with win7 to drop to this price point.
very tempted but lack of comeback puts me off.

It would be fine for that use.

I want to know the same thing. The i3 with HD graphics are capable of playing 1080p but I worry that (like the last packard bell I bought in 2001) that it would be very noisy and use loads of power.

I don't think it has wireless built in. You could easily add one internally or via USB (If you don't wanna open it)
#17
does anyone know the full mainboard spec can you add a dedicated graphics card.

I suppose my question is what else is it capable of? Is that basically all it's good for.

Presumably the lack of dedicated graphics card rules it out of being any good for gaming?
#19
I got excited and hoped it was suitable for use as a media center, but still a good pc.
no tv in, or wifi so not what i'd like, but they're pretty cheap to add on.
no blu-ray either.

I'm not complaining at that price, just pointing out anyone that thought it may be a good media center ;)
#20
I can't believe this doesn't come with integrated wi-fi - surely all new PCs have that!

processor alone is over £80. Win 7 premium (OEM) probably the same... add 3GB memory, 500HD, etc and you find easily that is a bargain. Voted hot and very tempted

Superheat! Also has two empty slots for more RAM! Does anybody know what motherboard it uses, as I wanna Hackintosh it?

I agree. I'd wager a few quid that it does actually have built in wi-fi although it doesn't mention it. Even so, if it hasnt, a USB wireless thingy is only a few quid.

I just did a quick google and it doesn't have wifi so you'd need an adapter for about £20 or so.
built in graphics so not brilliant for games.
but I'd still buy it for this price if i wanted something basic!! it's better than what most of my family have!! :)

Well blu-ray, TVin and wi-fi are not what i'd say are required features for a media centre!
HD 1080p playback, Ethernet, QUIET operation, small size, good looking case and low power use is the top of most books!
If you want blu-ray, It would be very easy to swap the DVD drive for blu-ray and it will without-a-doubt have a spare PCI or PCI-E 1x (Or even USB) for Wifi or a TV tuner card (Or both).

The i3 Integrated graphics are the best they've ever been (bar the new sandybridge i3's), and may make games such as Cod4 etc playable. However I'd recommend adding a graphics card (maybe a £50-£80 one, like the 5750) if you want to play more games. Of course a beefier graphics card will almost certainly require a new power supply. So maybe a total cost of £100 required to make this a fairly OK gaming machine?

It should be perfect for most things except heavy video editing, 3D modelling and the latest games.

Very, very tempting at this price. Heat added.

I reckon at the rate their selling they have about 30 mintues before sold out, an hour max
#33
any comments on their fan noise (if any)? Going for this instead of the Acer Revo R3700 ;)
#34
Looks great.

Anyone know what motherboard this has? And is it a quiet little machine - or a noisy cricket?

And is there room in this wee beast for a graphics card (I'm guessing so, but maybe its low-profile headroom only?)

You can't hackintosh any PC (at least I couldn't). There are lots of guides on the internet but basically any CPU (family) and chipset Apple use in manufacturing their Macs can be used to make a cheap mac.

#37
Few do actually, its something not often found on the motherboard, most people tend to hook up the base unit via Ethernet.

You can buy USB wireless receivers for less than a tenner though

Is this i3 processor much faster than an Intel Quad Core

Pretty much anything any domestic user would want to do other than running the latest games at full res. or doing 3D CAD.
