I don't get the point of an i5 with a puny (180W) power supply. Why would you need a heap of processor speed other than for playing games or video editing etc? These types of use presumably need a decent graphics card which can't run on this power supply. I'm not knocking the deal itself but am genuinely confused about which type of user the machine is aimed at?
I was mainly interested in running Photoshop and web design programs, the processor will be great for batch processing and actions without the need for a decent graphics card. Well hopefully anyway?

It makes sense, this isn't the father it is the mother(board and rest of your PC) that you receive, and it won't leak as there are no water cooling parts.

Only £351.61 at Dabs (although currently on order i.e. no immediate stock). Dabs also qualifies for the cash-back from hp. If you can trade in then £251.61 (or even £281.55) seems a pretty good deal.
Yes did see that one but was on order and couldn't see a expected date of despatch and the trade-in expires on the 30th June

well I run amd so the voltage isn't really a problem for me and overclocking anything really has a element of risk but usually the risk is pretty low

Yeah read that too about amd being ok with 1.6v too. People saying intel 4xxx cores being the same, then othera saying any penium is ok with 1.6v ... others saying it's really just 1.5v but 1.6v means that's what it can be ran at... you don't know who to believe. With a shortage of "1.6v RAM killed my CPU" stories out there, i'm thinking it makes very little difference in most cases.

Can you Overclock this? Don't know much about RAM so will this be perfectly capable of handling top end software and games?
you probably can but you would have to sacrifice timings plus ram speed makes very little difference so I just leave it as 1600

I just read as much in my research. Read the same for the CL rating (this stuff being CL9) apparently CL10 (slower) doesn't make much difference. Some people seem to have an issue with 1.6V ram, opinions range wildly :| Some saying it's fine and others saying to puts added strain on your cpu, lessens its life, and voids warranties on Intels! What to believe lol.

Also read to stay away from buffered ram unless you're putting it into a server or other dedicated workhorse type machine because it adds latency to varied tasks like gaming. At least I know more about it than I did yesterday thanks to this thread!!

Do not buy fit 15e's, I have one myself and others have also reported to have a massive build issue involving the wifi. I cannot get good connection if im upstairs and the router is downstairs. Apparently you can fix it by replacing the wifi card, but it requires removing the whole shell to get to it.

My vaio was repaired 3 times due to a light leak on the bezle, Sony later on refunded me as it was classed as a design fault.

I got this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00HNQXCXG for £360 .. now 399.. apart from average screen with poor viewing angles it is great.
Well... I picked one of these below at Xmas time (with 1TB HDD instead of 750GB):
http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-15-n297sa-15-6-laptop-21921792-pdt.html
They were at £399.
So £529 for a lesser spec (apart from Win8.1Pro), I don't see this as a deal. All you're doing is paying for the Sony logo.
I hope it's gold for that price difference.

Yeah, cheapest I can find now is £133 at MoreComputers

Well, Placed my order Thursday from More. Email yesterday as follows...
"Thanks for placing an order with More Computers for the HP ProLiant G7 Microserver. The stock we have of this particular Microserver doesn't qualify for the cashback offer from HP"

Well done to all who got in early on this deal - now off to organise a bunch returns for RAM and drives also ordered to go with it!

I feel your pain. I have tried re-ordering at Dabs, a little bit more expensive (£124.16) but they state the £100 cashback offer: http://www.dabs.com/products/hp-proliant-microserver-turion-ii-neo-n54l-2-2ghz-2gb-ram-250gb-hdd-8JPK.html

If this doesn't work the drives are going back.

It's probably too late to get the invoice by 31/03/2014.

It's definitely gone now even on dabs.com, they removed the promotion banner.

Got a reply today to say they did receive my claim and it's being processed, email must have not got through because there's nothing in my Gmail inbox or spam from them!

you are welcome :) Good it has come through by post. These guys pay the cashback, unlike some companies trying to shoot you down on minor details, which is bordering on cheating. Once I lost 400+ quid on a carphonewarehouse cashback, which was refused on minor technicality but was actually their own fault. Needless to say I was very crossed but no one listened.

if you need to apply by email, read some of the posts above for the mail ID. I would suggest send them an email on that ID, they might get back to you.

Sorry final word..... Cold

CouchPotatoe
Well I knew as an Apple product it would be voted cold, but maybe it helped someone. It's sad the vitriolic, overly opinionated and perhaps jealous sentiment that this site has now attracted.

Apple has been hugely successful and it has created a self evident market position and this I think was a good deal.

This is something I think the mods need to think about as this site evolves, balancing a good deal for a brand vs the no name ' value ' alternatives. No one can say Apple is a low quality brand.

Oh, and BTW rbrookes .. If an Apple support guy in a T-shirt did know the square root of f*** all then you should listen, learn, and appreciate, hard as that might be for you, as one thing is certain ... you don't know it !

Oh I listened and learnt that he was a kid 10 minutes out of college and knew the square root of f*** all. I went into an Apple store with a serious set of questions that were treated with disdain and contempt by the shiny happy brigade who couldn't answer any of them with solid fact.

It's a pity that people pander to their Magpie like needs for a shiny piece of tat through marketing hype and listen to these ill informed 'experts'.

The votes and decreasing share price show that people are boring of Apple and their insular and bullying business practices.


I think their hilarious too mate, those 'geniuses' are classic. I went in there for a laugh stoned as we always do and after asking be of the dunces all spotty and lame if the s3 was a good phone, he pulls out his Samsung and acts cool saying...... I only work here mate, it's money. Hell, we bought popcorn for the laugh home. The fact theirs a 'genius' in store shows how clouded, deluded and nieve these freaks are.

These are the sort of people who go and see the Dyson doctor at John Lewis........

Final word..... Nieve.

It is different, same parent company but online only. You can shop there as a retail customer (have done). You need to register on the business site. There's also 6% Quidco across the board at PCW Business by the way.
It may be the same company but it works in a different way. You need to be a business customer to buy from there PCWorld business site.
IT'S THE SAME COMPANY AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. ( HULK MODE )
Not really, PC World business is totally different. You won't find this in PC World or Currys.
Decent deal, if you are going to be a light user though.

Wow the price of the ink is frightening !

Totally irrelevant but I have an old Epson printer that works fine and got some carts of eBay for £7.50 for 5 sets IE 20 carts !
All that good advice and still it gets hot!
I've had one of these for about a year now, got it for £20.00 at the time.

Black ink costs around £13/14, colour costs around £20/21, but it doesn't last that long.

The quality of the print isn't clear, but isn't blurry, somewhere in between, but it does the job.
Great price for a cheap throw-away printer, you can buy compatible ink and refill the same cartridge time and time again, but this is only possible until you get the "Not recognized cartridge error"

Advent built two versions of this printer with help from Kodak, the two models are same as two versions of Kodak sister models, but with smaller LCD screens.

Only Currys and PC World sold the Advent printer, now obsolete. The cartridges will be sold for a very short time and will be discontinued.

The kodak cartridges are not compatible with the Advent printers even though they are the same, its down to the data-chip and software that recognizes the Advent or Kodak brand.

Kodak have now stopped making printers which will have an effect of the Advent models.

Also this model has the ink head built into the printer which is common to fail, so much ink is wasted due to continuous need to carry-out unnecessary cleaning cycles.
False economy. The price of printers is pretty much irrelevant over a period of time, it's the ink cost that matters and a combined colour cartridge is a really bad idea.
