This is similar to the acerdirect/laptopsdirect deals we've had on here recently.
However there are several important differences that I think justify the slightly higher price.
**Better CPU - the Athlon II X4 620 is far superior to the Phenom 9650, and is roughly on a par with an Intel Q6600.
**Better monitor - The 1366x768 monitor found in the other clearance machines isn't particularly practical for a desktop monitor. This 1600x900 monitor should be much more useful.
**Windows 7 rather than Vista
**More RAM - 4GB is all this spec. of machine will ever need.
Definitely worth the extra £80 for a much more balanced and useful machine.
The only problem I can see with it (which the other clearance Acers also suffer from) is that it's a slim-line case.
This limits graphics card upgrade potencial some-what, unless the case (and probably PSU) are replaced.
The price above includes delivery of £9.95, it can be knocked off if you are in a position to collect.
Also, don't forget Quidco cashback of 2% (~£7)
FYI, I totted up the cost of the components and they're worth ~£440.
