Definitely, once you upgrade the gpu - I don't think it could handle anything modern, it will bottleneck the rest of the system.

To be fair it's three generations behind and unlikely to be new old stock.

Not going to be that good, small form factor limits you to half height graphics cards, also doubt it has the 6pin pci-e power connector required for most mid range gfx cards.
I expect that if your happy with a 1030GT at very low settings you’d be fine though.

The processor was released for the first time May 2014 en.wikipedia.org/wik…ors


So it's barely 3 years old
Not bad. Would make a decent workstation once you add an ssd.
It would take a fair bit of tinkering to turn into a half decent gaming rig. If gaming is your thing get an Xbox X for the same money:)

Worth bookmarking the Itzoo page and coming back in a few days, they get new stock all the time - my son's HP i7 refurb also went OOS briefly then came back in again within a week

Yes you can. Together they're worth less than the total cost of the PC. The CPU is £155 from CEX as its not a K version and the RAM is DDR3 so not worth that much. No point poaching them for another build, just go and buy the parts seperately.

Mathematics says you're wrong. It's almost 4 years old. Anyway regardless the CPU is more than good enough. There's not much point poaching the CPU as they're only selling for £155 on CEX.

33314241-Qo3bi.jpgCan someone please advise, it's been 10 years since I knew anything about PC's. I know nothing about prrcesseors since then or SSD etc. This is my 10 year old laptop and to say its always on a go slow is an understatement. Running Windows 10.

All we do is a bit of Microsoft Office, emails, picture printing and scanning (no editing) banking, browsing, the odd bit of you tube and streaming videos. File downloading such as videos and music and then sticking that on external hard drive and USB sticks etc and that's about it. No gaming really as we have xbox one for that.

What the hell do I buy, have a study so not limited for space and no requirement for it to be portable (but would be a bonus) so could do a desktop or laptop. Not fussed about bragging rights "mine has a bigger prrcesseor than yours" all media will be stored externally

Don't want to spend a fortune bit don't want to end up with something that's cheap because it's crap. Refurb not a problems for me.

Cheers in advance PC boffs

You can play games on it, it's about as good as a midrange laptop for gaming, so far from great gaming performance but you can do it.

what is your desired/upper budget? ie 'ideally £150 but could pay £250 if it was worth it'
I don’t see why a lot of the comments are negative.

What do you expect for under 300 quid?

This will be good and fast enough to do all general computing and good enough for gaming.

Downside is no wireless but you could sort that yourself
This any good for Lightroom and Photoshop?

You only need something like a 3rd gen i3 for what you want to do. So buy one of these with an i3-3220 instead will cost you about £100.

The only bad move you could make is to get a bargain basement new laptop (under 500 pounds territory). Go for refurbs in that price bracket, much better value.

OK thanks for that, will that be significantly faster than what I have now, what gen is mine. I presume it's understandable mine is slow now, just outdated, not a potential fault or anything. What about ram, 8/16? Is a ssd worth it for the OS

As for budget I can pay whatever but only want to pay what I need to. Don't want to have to buy again for ages but it will continue to only do the tasks mentioned above till it starts to die like the current one.

Any suggestions as to the best sites to look at
Forgive my stupidity but an I3 had been suggested, what is the current Generation and is each successive generation better than the last or will I top spec I3 be better than a low spec I4. What about AMD? worth considering?

Ebay is cheaper & as long as you get a 12 month warranty (on refurb) and choose a reseller with gazillions of sales & decent reputation, you'll be fine, obvs pay with PayPal for another money back guarantee

or check out the Itzoo site for cheapo i5 refurbs, my deal would keep you going nicely for (say) 5 years

The website mscom has some great deals from time to time, having that Acer for ten years says to me that you don't mind spending a wee bit and that you look after it. Would a 128gb SSD hard drive too small for your needs?

This may be back in stock again. Try later today as I think their working hours are from 10am. Although I did not see this one listed on eBay like some of their previous HP i7 4770 deals.

Otherwise very similar HP or Dell i7 4770/4790 varients may get added in the near future. There has been a few deals for them posted on here since December.

Ok

First off if you need help could you be more specific, as this will make it so much easier for people to help you :

Budget
"not a fortune" or " spend whatever needs to be spent" so that's a price range from 1p to £10,000?

Could you please give us a price range

Form factor

" It can be a desktop or a laptop, but portability would be a bonus" so a desktop tower on a scooter then?

Decided please, in the last 10 years since you got your last laptop most laptops have been replaced by tablets, maybe consider getting a 7-8 tablet for portability and a desktop.

For what you do with your existing laptop an i3 would be your ceiling, better off getting a Pentium and spending money on a SSD as this makes a PC way faster for day to day.

AMD is a viable choice for a new desktop not a laptop, please answer the above queries so people can help you more.
