Only a mug would buy a two gen old pc at this price. If it was priced 200-250 fair enough. Expect at least a icore at this price or icore 2. Dell sell the vostro 460 with icore two for around 400. Check out http://www.dmxdimension.com .

Typical Dell fanboy post. Go on, spec up the cheapest 460 on there with 6 gig ram and dvd writer and post the price and spec. We'll then see how helpful your post was.

Nothing stopping you from buying a base spec Dell and upgrading it yourself which works out a lot cheaper. Still cost more than this but for ~£50 more you’d have a dramatically faster CPU (i5-2400 3.1GHz) plus a platform that you can upgrade. The 3rd generation of the Core i series will be compatible with current motherboards with a BIOS update; hit and miss for OEM systems.

Wasn't actually answering the question but never mind, just saying that you can get a cheaper better spec Dell.

But in answer to the question -Dell 460 - Core i5-2400 3.1GHZ (which is significantly better than the Q8400 - http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/501/Intel_Core_2_Duo_E8400_vs_Intel_Core_i5_i5-2400.html) is £388 - An extra 4GB RAM - £25, 1TB HDD - £35

So for £50 more you have a significantly faster machine.

Dell outlet is of course a lot cheaper than this and still with 12 months warranty.... for eg:

Accessory Sub-Total: £0.00
Total Price: £230.22
Price incl.VAT and excl.del: £276.26
Price excl.VAT and excl.del: £230.22

Yawn, you did it again where is the answer to the question??? Of course there are cheaper deals than this Zoostorm and some people bizarrely like Dell and even like the Dell outet. The point I was making was about the insane assertion that you could get the 460 of a similar spec for anywhere near this price via the link he gave.

All that aside why does every deal on here get hijacked by the Dell fanboys. There really are better ways to get a decent machine.

Yawn? Didn't i answer the question? Dell 460 for £388 then another £60 to spec the RAM and HDD up the same so for another £50 you have a much better, faster machine.

Why shouldn't people like Dell? Is there some sort of law against it? I have bought probably around 10 Dell Laptops from the outlet over the last 1-2 years and haven't had an issue with a single one. I have bought a laptop from Dell direct also and this did develop a fault and was collected and returned within 4 days.

When looking for PC's for people i always get the best deal available and the amazing limited Sony deal last year, the outlet is always the cheapest.

To put it in perspective i am typing this on a Dell XPS15 laptop with a Core i5, 6GB RAM, 1GB Nvidia Graphics, 500GB hdd and a 1920x1080 screen (which is a £180 option on its own). I got this from the outlet for £500. They are just brand new cancelled/returned orders. There is not a mark on this or any of them that i have bought. Can YOU tell me where i can get that spec laptop cheaper seeing as you are such an expert?

I have on the other hand bought a few HP laptops for people and every single one of them has had some sort of issue from screens, invertors, psu's to the whole motherboard failings. With HP you also have to pack the Laptop up yourself and arrange collection yourself. Dell just collect (well Getronics do) it and have the packaging with them.

As for the Zoostorm, I have heard horror stories about the aftersales service and reliability....This is also a very old (in PC terms) processor compared to what can be had for a similar price. They are marketing it like PC World do on how much RAM it has and how big the HDD is - These are the cheapest components of the build pretty much so to me not really a selling point as upgrades for these components are dirt cheap.

I am in no way a Dell fanboy as I have an iMac, iPad, Lenovo, HP and homebuilt kit at home. Working in IT you get to know a good deal when you see one and Dell certainly do some cracking deals which is probably why everything gets compared to Dell deals.

My god what a rant, what's HP or laptops got to do with your inability to read the question.

You chose to selectively read the question. Can you go to this site -http://www.dmxdimension.com/ and get a 460 of same spec for anywhere near £400. You have chosen to go to the outlet and then open the box and add components. Why not just build a system, theres nothing to it and you get a decent power supply etc.

I love your 'working in IT' bit which is presumably added to give your post cred.

Blimey, do you need to go to specsavers? Twice now i have answered your question even though i didn't need to.

Here is the link http://configure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukbsdt1&l=en&oc=D054601&dgc=AF&cid=5213&lid=122757&acd=452822c8028c97ef84c672b45261229c

Yes you have to open the box and add components if you want to - no-one is forcing you to but if you do you get a much better machine due to the i5 processor (refer back to the benchmarking link i posted in #14)

So in a nutshell for £400 you can't get the same spec but you can get a much better spec machine and then for £448 you can upgrade the RAM and add a HDD (so you would then have 1.32TB storage)

To be honest if you are complaining that you have to add components then the average user who wouldn't want to or have the knowledge to do this (presume they can't google how to's either) then they aren't even going to notice the 6GB or RAM or need the 1TB of storage over the 2GB and 320GB respectively. And if they can't do that then they are hardly going to build a system themselves.

HP latops i was comparing to for reliability as you obviously have something against Dell.

I think the heat of this deal says it all and you are the only one defending it.

As for the 'working in IT' bit i was just saying that it is how i know what is and isn't a good deal. Nothing to do with cred. I just like to based things on fact rather than hearsay.

I am not saying that the 460 is a good deal (if you look i never mentioned the 460 to start with until you assumed that i was answering someone elses comment/question) but it is a good comparison for this out of date box on offer here.

There also isn't any 460's on the Outlet so again you didn't read my comment correctly as i posted 2 off the outlet in seperate posts both for the 580.

Really? You waffle so much they are very well hidden. No, really, I did see them but ignored them as I didn't want a discussion on the merits of Dell, merely an answer to the simple question you keep talking around.

It is not possible to order a comparable 460 without paying a lot more so the original csf post was ill-informed and unhelpful (obvious fanboy) and I really don't understand why you keep trying to defend it .

BTW the system you built and linked to has a 32bit OS. I'm not an IT expert like you but can you put 6 gig in there?

Time to move on I think...

Didn't build it just linked it. 64bit is a £0.00 option so the choice is yours....again if you had looked you would have seen.

As you seem to be missing the point - this 460 can be had for £388 and for an extra £60 should you wish can be made to the same RAM and HDD as this deal.

Can;t really see how i can make it ANY CLEARER for you. You seem to be talking around the answer. I have answered you FOUR times now.

Looks like some people think like me, this deal is stoned cold.

Pot belly I am not a dell fan boy, but why would anyone buy a two gen old system when you can buy a new gen system and upgrade it (via sourcing the parts yourself not via dell extortionate prices) for a minimal outlay, (another 4 gig 14.99. bigger hard disk 30, dvd rw 14 etc). Plus you get a reputable warranty and after sales from Dell.

And if Dell doesn't float your boat, you can go to various other outlets and even get a 2500k setup for this price.

This site is about deals and in my book not ripping people off, you see alot of non techie peeps get ripped off in PC World, not gonna let people get ripped off on here.

CLEARER? You made a fool of yourself. You posted YOUR SUGGESTED BUILD that you would add ram to and it had a 32 bit OS.

Still nobody has linkd to a 460 of a comparable memory and DVD spec at anywhere near this price. I'll give you a clue why... it does not exist. You Dell fanboys are chasing procesor speed which for most home users would be of little benefit running average apps.

And I say again, I do not think this is a hot deal but it's certainly not a ripoff as a different fanboy suggested..
#20
As I said it wasn't a SUGGESTED BUILD, it was just a link to the 460 for £388 (Post #21 - First line for clarification). Seemingly you are the only one who can't see this or actually read what I have put. As csf stated this is about hot deals and this old gen box certainly isn't. If you think it is then perhaps you should look up on processor specs or read my benchmarking link.

You have also hit the nail on the head with the chasing processor specs comment, as you in fact are chasing ram and hard drive specs which won't be noticeable to the average user and 6gb less use than processor speed, particularly on the latest browsers.

Also stop saying we are fanboys as the only person who is looking like a fool at the moment is you to be honest as you don't seem to have a grasp on pc technology and in particular processor architecture.

My god what a rant, what's HP or laptops got to do with your inability to read the question.

You chose to selectively read the question. Can you go to this site -http://www.dmxdimension.com/ and get a 460 of same spec for anywhere near £400. You have chosen to go to the outlet and then open the box and add components. Why not just build a system, theres nothing to it and you get a decent power supply etc.

I love your 'working in IT' bit which is presumably added to give your post cred.


I also asked 3 questions which i haven't recieved answers to.....

Really? You waffle so much they are very well hidden. No, really, I did see them but ignored them as I didn't want a discussion on the merits of Dell, merely an answer to the simple question you keep talking around.

It is not possible to order a comparable 460 without paying a lot more so the original csf post was ill-informed and unhelpful (obvious fanboy) and I really don't understand why you keep trying to defend it .

BTW the system you built and linked to has a 32bit OS. I'm not an IT expert like you but can you put 6 gig in there?

Time to move on I think...

Didn't build it just linked it. 64bit is a £0.00 option so the choice is yours....again if you had looked you would have seen.

As you seem to be missing the point - this 460 can be had for £388 and for an extra £60 should you wish can be made to the same RAM and HDD as this deal.

Can;t really see how i can make it ANY CLEARER for you. You seem to be talking around the answer. I have answered you FOUR times now.

CLEARER? You made a fool of yourself. You posted YOUR SUGGESTED BUILD that you would add ram to and it had a 32 bit OS.

Still nobody has linkd to a 460 of a comparable memory and DVD spec at anywhere near this price. I'll give you a clue why... it does not exist. You Dell fanboys are chasing procesor speed which for most home users would be of little benefit running average apps.

And I say again, I do not think this is a hot deal but it's certainly not a ripoff as a different fanboy suggested..

Yawn I am going back to sleep ... Zzzzz .... :)

PS HP fanboi actually, HP blade servers all the way :)
