** HEADS UP THOSE WHO PURCHASED **
I just received a Marketing Call from Ideal World who have offered a bunch of free stuff to trial for 3 weeks & then cancel if you wish to... expect a call :|

Got the same call, the telemarketer guy spoke very aggressively and quickly, I had to get him to explain who he was and what he wanted several times. Hane now removed myself from all the mailing preferences on the online account. They also automatically sign you up to their 'sister company' mailouts - a bit cheeky to say the least.

Looks like same prices as the gamesplanet deal posted yesterday.
They are, but I'm sure its easier to buy the game in steam?
Also it means your review will count :{
So submitting a review using a Steam activated key does not apply weight to the overall rating?
Is that a new thing?
Yeah, as of yesterday.

It's an option to filter by, they are separated by Steam purchase and key activation...
Even though you can switch the filter between Steam purchases and key activations at the bottom, reviews from key activation purchases are no longer taken into account for the game's overall score, which has affect the Negative/Mixed/Positive rating at the top for some games.

Apparently it's to stop developers tampering with reviews by giving out free keys in exchange for positive reviews, but it also affects people who actually paid for their keys - such as crowd funding supporters, purchases directly from the developer (important to indie devs who can make more money this way, instead of having to give 30% to Valve) and, of course, people like us on HUKD who are all about the Humble Bundles and key deals on third party sites.

I'm not sure how you get to the £419 figure, from your description you get to £573 and then sell off a steam controller making the final value £543?

£419 is base price of the i3 model without any discounts. Alpha Steam OS goes from £419 to £749.00. The windows 10 version is an average of £50 more expensive on each variation. Great if you don't want windows or have windows key and can install yourself like I did.

My one tracked at 70p what shall I do
Not sure why people are saying there is more to clean up because there isn't anything to clean up. No saucepan and spoon to wash up. I wipe the condensation off the inside and that's it.

There is if you use it to poach eggs, but that just the poaching dish.
I got this a few months back, I thought I would constantly use the hell out of this thing but nope, used it a few times and it's been sitting in the corner of my kitchen ever since lol. Too much faff to clean this thing after using it, back to the old fashioned way for me.
This gives me the option of poached eggs on toast at work

I run it as a Plex server so I need the CPU to be fairly powerful but at the same time idle at basically zero.
Plex doesn't use as much CPU power as you think, an i7 is massive overkill. I run Plex on a very underpowered Seedbox in the cloud, it probably has about the amount of processing power as your average smartphone. It runs 1080p streams just fine while doing a whole other host of different things. To be honest, if you want a Plex server you're better of paying £5-10 a month to have one in the cloud and not have to faff with networking in your house. (Google is your friend here, either buy one configured or get a cheap VPS). I found a Xeon powered one for about £7 a month, so you'd have to run your machine for over 5 years to save money and that doesn't take into account bandwidth at home or electricity prices at home.
Case and point being there are cheap NAS boxes that support Plex.
Plex cares more about your upload speed then it does about the hardware, since it is very well optimised for weak boxes.
Dannyrobbo
The PC will never be off or in sleep mode because it will not wake up from outside the home
There are a lot of ways of doing this, but okay. Also the CPU in the model you bought is still going to use more power than the i3 I suggested, even then you'd probably be better of with a Pentium or Celeron with even lower power requirements. Perhaps a G4400T would be a good choice.
Dannyrobbo
£450 i paid
That's a lot of cash for a box just to use as a Plex server.
Dannyrobbo
extra 2 years warranty
Most individual PC parts you buy have a 3 year warranty as standard.
Dannyrobbo
there was nothing in this specification range for the same price.
There totally is, you just bought the wrong tool for the job to be honest. You could've done the same thing for less money. Not trying to be a dick here, just trying to show you that you wasted your cash. I don't really care how you throw your money away.

Plex needs CPU power for transcoding, a single 1080p transcode with transmission to a location outside the home requires CPU power (they say 2000 passmark per stream). Hence the i7 model I bought, it has been tested doing 4 transcodes remotely and watching a 5th locally.

I don't have to rely on anybody to maintain it or be asking questions about what media is on there as I control it completely locally.

As for power the whole unit will only have a max power draw of 120w and it idles at around 11w (measured). A celeron simply would not transcode many streams. It runs quiet, cool and efficient for my use.

I specified the processor needed with power draw etc and it was a struggle to get it less than £200. It was possible to buy this and warranty for less than the parts building it myself so I decided to go for it.

Whether I wasted my money is based on my needs and if it fulfills them at a price I could justify, and I feel it fits the bill while the added bonus of not looking hideous on the tv stand.

I wanted to run plex and have low power consumption At idle as well as an extra small form factor
There are still cheaper ways of doing this because for what you bought this for it is massive overkill, you don't even need the weak dedicated laptop GPU. Bear in mind the only laptop part in this machine is the GPU, not the CPU. The CPU is a full desktop part, albeit a T spec'd chip which is a lower wattage model. You can still buy these yourself.
Firstly my HTPC uses nothing at idle because it goes to sleep and has a modern motherboard that can go into a deep sleep mode like a laptop does. It also has an SSD so cold boot to the Windows desktop is under 7 seconds and wake from a deep sleep is near instant. It's also very small (uses a CiT MTX-007B) but slightly larger as it has room for a Bluray/DVD drive. It cost about £250 to build.
You could build something better than this machine for HTPC use for around the same price.

Both of those cases have a PSU. Also that CPU is more powerful than the Alienware one:http://i.imgur.com/thaoG01.png
Plus the advantage of using DDR4 over DDR3.

I still understand what you mean but you are missing the point, I run it as a Plex server so I need the CPU to be fairly powerful but at the same time idle at basically zero. The PC will never be off or in sleep mode because it will not wake up from outside the home network so for the £450 i paid (student discount and extra 2 years warranty) there was nothing in this specification range for the same price.

I wanted to run plex and have low power consumption At idle as well as an extra small form factor

There are still cheaper ways of doing this because for what you bought this for it is massive overkill, you don't even need the weak dedicated laptop GPU. Bear in mind the only laptop part in this machine is the GPU, not the CPU. The CPU is a full desktop part, albeit a T spec'd chip which is a lower wattage model. You can still buy these yourself.

Firstly my HTPC uses nothing at idle because it goes to sleep and has a modern motherboard that can go into a deep sleep mode like a laptop does. It also has an SSD so cold boot to the Windows desktop is under 7 seconds and wake from a deep sleep is near instant. It's also very small (uses a CiT MTX-007B) but slightly larger as it has room for a Bluray/DVD drive. It cost about £250 to build.

You could build something better than this machine for HTPC use for around the same price.

Every gaming PC i looked at was either way over my budget or was a hulking behemoth that in no way would fit in the small space under my TV.
You can get/build systems just as small as this. It isn't a unique product. The system build I outlined above will murder this for gaming and is just as small.
Also building a PC is no harder than putting an IKEA flatpack together or building a LEGO kit.
While you are right you can build one faster, it was power that was a concern for me as it was going to be left on all the time the Alienware idles at 11w. I have a gaming PC that'll handle games.
You're talking pennies a year difference for a machine that'll play games much better than this machine. Seems like people get their priorities mixed up when building gaming machines nowadays.
The most important part of buying or building any computer is to focus the money you spend on the right area, for a gaming machine that is the GPU, for a video production or photo editing workstation you throw money at the CPU. In the case of this machine (and the other models in the range) is that they've spent the money on a flashy case and a overpowered CPU and put in a really weak, old, laptop spec GPU.
The machine I outlined will go into sleep and come out of it instantly too, it's not unique to this machine either to be honest, any hardware made in the past 5 years will sip power when not being used.

I didn't build a gaming machine I wanted to run plex and have low power consumption At idle as well as an extra small form factor. Some of those pico psu's by the time you have bought the brick are close to £100.

waking from sleep quickly is great but a little more tricky away from the homev (I do plan on implementing this without wacky dyndns solutions). This is why I chose this machine because it uses low power laptop components, the only thing in the same market is an Intel NUC and they get expensive.

ps. I also got the i7 model (i7-4785t)

Been looking at getting a better PC for gaming, this seems like a great price for an i7 PC that would go well under the TV. this has windows on it too instead of the steam os so you'd be able to us…

I think the gaming-focused conversation here has swayed the discussion a bit, although understandable because the brand does direct it towards the gaming market.
I'm interested in getting one of these as I travel frequently and have to do lots of intensive graphics and video work, but I absolutely hate using a laptop for any serious editing - ask anyone who does this kind of work seriously and they'll tell you that 9 hours spent at a laptop results in serious deformities. Lightweight monitors are available now, and I can certainly get a few pounds of monitor in a suitcase, as long as it's no bigger than a 22 monitor.
It's nigh on impossible to find a portable PC with a half-decent graphics chip. I've no particular interest in gaming, but I'm hugely interested in this if it would allow me to ditch my macbook pro for a proper computer. I'm sure anyone reading this will suggest to just carry on with the laptop, but really, after 9 years of doing so, it's really taking a toll. Moreover, repairs are so expensive to high-end laptops - if something happens to the screen, it's really difficult to get a replacement.
Interesting re: the updated model coming after e3 - but what sort of price will this entail? An i7 with dedicated graphics is hard to find. As a competitor to the Mac mini this looks hard to beat.
If this is overpriced for its hardware, as many of you have said, can anyone please point my in the direction of a comparable model? I've considered Micro ITX, but I still haven't managed to get anywhere near this size/ price point for what I need.
...and please - don't just tell me to build a gaming computer, I have absolutely no use for FPS related willy-waving.


I know you have said don't say build a gaming computer, but you could build a much better ITX system for a respectable cost without the focus being on video game fps. If instead of focusing on pushing the most fps out of a system you focused on something with comparable specs and size to your Mac book pro, you could do very well, as if you aren't going to put a £200+ dedicated long GPU in the system, you have a good little bit to play around with, meaning you could get a Bluetooth and WiFi integrated mobo, a small size GPU with enough power for your needs, and then have a system you can gradually upgrade if the need for more performance in certain areas arrises, and you have a system that you have put together meaning that any repairs/replacements should be able to be done yourself

Edit: if however you did just want something simple and easy from the get go, this would suit your needs, just you won't have too much joy with upgrading anything if you need to in the future bar the most simple parts eg the ram and the storage. It all depends on your exact needs and what you're using the system for. You'd also, as other posts have explained, install windows OS onto this on your own accord, I dont know how or if you'd go about this if there's anything alienate have done to hinder this

Could this run GTA V PC properly?
Good deal! Not your typical Alienware monster machine, but will fit nicely under a TV and handle most modern games at med/high at around 30fps.
it unfortunately doesn't, the GPU completely screws it, it is worse than it looks on paper.
It fortunately does. I have an i7 860m laptop and it runs games as I described above. Mobile parts aren't the laughable messes the master race would have you believe.
It unfortunately doesn't, I don't care what laptop you have, my friend has this exact machine and it falls on it's 1080p face, the drivers supplied for the custom card, which is a modded mobile gpu are worst than poor, please do not try and shoot me down when I try to be helpful and state facts, your inferiority complex over your 960m has no place in being critical of my original post.
Bless. It's sweet that you think I have any kind of complex about the numbers in my PC. I look at what will do the job I want and go for it, I don't get bogged down in chasing fps. My laptop has served me well and I'm perfectly happy with it, whether or not you are is of no concern to me.
Oh, and it's an 860m.
debating nothing it seems... IDK, why you chose to defend the 860m if you aren't concerned about fps, as that is a gpu job... The 860m maybe fine in you laptop, but in this, for the money, it is pants, google it if you want, I just don't want ppl buying this thing thinking it'll run maxed out Witcher, because it wont.
In my very first post in this thread, which also happens to be post #1, I said it would run modern games on med/high at 30fps. Exactly what part of that do you think people might misconstrue as 'it will run Witcher 3 maxed out'?


I did not read or post in relation to your first post... I was just stating facts... you really do have a complex over your card. I funny enough, was talking about my experience of this machine. Weirdly not my opinion of what you are guessing about a machine because you have a completely different system with a similar or same GPU. I have no more time to waste on your paranoias sorry, Over and out!

I'm probably more gob-smacked that this 'game' costs £14.99 on Steam. Oh and its apparently broken as hell.

it is - i've just tried it. it's horrible - graphical glitches all over the place and generally unplayable.

never turn down a freebie :)

that's 217 games in my steam library that i'll never play ..

I've got Just Cause 3 nestled away in there as well but i'll never be able to afford a graphics card powerful enough to bloody play it.

Who can turn down a free Steam game? Heat! :D
Indeed, I have acquired around 140 free games at this point, most are not good, but occasionally you find a good one.
That's awesome I've around 37 games.
