Been on the look out for a new desktop, and having spent two whole nights going through my options through countless PC websites, this seems to tick all the boxes for me(not looking for a gaming PC). Specs seem very good for the money I think, nice and powerful for an average home user, and comes in a nice sleek case(I hate those bulky great towers!) which from what I've read doesn't restrict upgrades too much either.

Only thing you'll need to add is a Monitor, I went for this 21.5" one from ebuyer at £109 ebuyer.com/pro…026 but of course you can get cheaper.

The above images are of the lower spec FP9004, but obviously case and keyboard the same.

And below a couple of old reviews again of the older much lower spec FP9004, but gives you an idea, couldn't find any reviews of the actual FP3104.

PC Experts, good deal?


I could do a better self build for £2.50 (_;)

I know, that's what I thought, 2 on the front, and then 10!! around the back!

Although obviously the "Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n dongle" will be using one of those, 2 for the keyboard and mouse, so only 7 left spare

Good CPU, Ram and good size drive. Onboard graphics not good so would need a decent dedicated graphics card. Barebones PC around with siimlar spec for less though.

Received mine on Friday, very nice solid & quality looking case, keyboard and mouse feel nice too. Waiting for the monitor I ordered from ebuyer to turn up though before i can set it up.
