Seems a reasonable spec for the price but would be interested in members thoughts. Was thinking of upping the memory to 8GB for £22 extra. No OS or Wi-Fi. 3yr collect and return warranty.

Little bit concerned about the onboard graphics but my PC knowledge is several years old. Will be used as a home PC. Very basic gaming and browsing so probably no need to up the ram or worry about on board graphics!

I think most i3 will beat this for performance by the looks of things

Not too bad, but heat for CCL Computers. They built my PC really well!

Probably true but can you buy an i3 ready built desktop for this sort of price?

While the long term view would be to build a system based round the G4560 and add a GPU.

Sadly the A4-7300 doesn't have a lot going for it. It's pretty slow only has two cores and a poor shader count for an APU.
But CEX will give you £8 (trade in) for the A4 and have a A8 7670 for £35. So for a £27 upgrade you get twice the cores (which have slightly better IPC) and a 384 shader GPU up from 128.
So will give you a better balance system and will play many games like CSgo, lol, wow fine and will play AAA games on low settings.

Free delivery for me. I'm guessing it's because you are on IOW and there courier charges extra.

refurb does not always mean they are seond hand units.
Why pay a shed load of money for something that is going to lose half its value in a ouple of years or less?

No it's fine to compare products that aren't the same and is often done on here.... I no longer buy steak because it was pointed out that donkey meat is similar and much cheaper.
