The CPU/Memory/Motherboard can be bought in a bundle from Ebuyer for £160...so on and so forth. It could be built (without a Vista license) for under £300...



Not everyone knows how to build a PC me included you cant compare this to building your own.:x

Building PCs is easy, you just slot them together and they work. There are plenty of guides on the web but really, there's no mystery to it.

It could be built (without a Vista license) for £250...



Funny that now can be built for £250...nice bit of editing there to try and justifiy how bad you think this deal is, luckly you were quoted and your original price remains.:whistling:

Well, I'm sure everyone personally knows a friend who's capable of … Well, I'm sure everyone personally knows a friend who's capable of building PC's. If I wasn't computer savvy, I'd be happy to spent £250 on the parts and throw my friend £10 for building it for me.I actually edited it cuz I didn't originally check to see the total price. When I did, I realised it was actually CHEAPER to build than my presumption. So I'm not trying to cover anything up.If you can justify spending an extra £179.99 so you'd be safe to know you're covered by warranty (which all the hardware will come with any way) and you think you should pay the extra for a pre-built PC, then that's totally your choice man. I'm not here to spoil posts as I always explain WHY when I vote cold. I never vote with just myself in mind, but I just wouldn't want people paying £180 more than they should.



Oh it comes with a 3 year warranty too.

well i voted hot as i agree not everyone can build a pc, plus the 3 years warranty. Op should change the title and state its Medion branded.

And PC deals are notoriously tough to become hot here. Hell, I posted one … And PC deals are notoriously tough to become hot here. Hell, I posted one from Scan earlier today that's prebuilt and it actually costs more to buy the parts separately, but that barely got over 20 degrees!


if memory serves me right, i voted hot on that one.
