Great all round Desktop, Use "merry" to get 15% off to bring it down to £324, free postage. I know "for an extra £xxx" you can get better PC's, but I've not seen a better all rounder with Windows 10 for this price? Only two left, they did have i7 for a little more with better graphics too.

Link below as the one on the right doesn't work!

Isn't this the model for which there were loads of deals earlier this year for about £260?

They are only on the Outlet now for about £340 WITHOUT VAT so a heck of a lot more than this deal wherever this deal goes as the link is not working and there is no other info about it.

Sorry, can't seem to get link to work, they are still available, just have to go through manually.

They are there, £340 plus vat, then take away your 15% discount for "merry" code.

Thanks Mike, They also have well priced i3 as well.

You can build this for much less if you use second hand parts, dodgy WIndows licences, parts you already own and forget to include key components and such like. But for those of us that live in reality then I vote this deal hot.

This comment was made to please those that always, always, always say you can build your own for much cheaper but time after time fail to actually provide a like for like comparison. So I've saved them the bother of posting the innaccurate comment they inevitably will post.

Install windows 7 pro and buy legit key from ebay £3 ish.

I am planning on taking over the world in the New Year - will this PC suffice for my revenge list?

I enjoy your posts and agree up to a point but "Warranty 1 year Collect & Return Hardware Support included with your PC" is one of many reasons that people build their own computers, they get the full retail box warranty of the parts that they buy, rather than settling for a one year warranty. Also, as the question of upgradability comes up a lot on these threads, why would someone want to build like with like, why would you want to build down to the limited Dell spec with a low power power supply that won't support a graphics card upgrade like a GTX 1060 or RX 480? People buy office base units, find they need a more powerful power supply for the graphics card they want, buy that more powerful power supply, so essentially they have shelled out money for two power supplies rather than getting their needs met from the get go, and then they find out the motherboard of the base unit has a non-standard socket that doesn't match anything on the power supply.

There are workarounds, motherboard PSU socket adapters, but... you are getting into a level of hassle that might not be worth it, for some people; if you can replace a power supply, you can easily enough build your own computer and get everything right on day one, without further cost and hassle and with the retail box warranty length of the components chosen.

As a basic base unit that includes a windows licence, these Dell deals are fine, absolutely agree with that, particularly if you don't mind the limited one year warranty. I couldn't find the deal on offer, here, having searched the site but if I was after a basic office base unit, I would say the deal merits heat for those looking for that.

I would agree that someone wanting to have some upgrade potential like a decent graphics card might be better looking elsewhere and it's true that building your own might be to have a better spec PC but time and time again people post replies saying they can build a same or better spec PC for less money but always fail to come up with any actual proof of where I could go and buy the bits to enable me to have a fully working PC with the same or very similar performing parts and a genuine (not £3) Windows licence and the fact is you can't.....that's what bugs me with those simple replies that they're voting cold as they can build the same for less.

And as you say, you'd probably want to build your own to actually get a better spec with more futureproofing.... that'll cost a bit more and yet as said, they'll always say they can do better for cheaper when it would be far more realistic if they said they can build better for a bit more.

Just one of my pet hates when we get a PC deal posted and the drive by cold voters just hit cold and give a totally unhelpful comment

I agree with you on those things, it is a frustration, but that it's hard to build a like with like because Dell, Lenovo, etc, are often using proprietary parts, which is to say cut down motherboards that have a bare minimum of features for an office base unit and often a non standard power supply socket that needs an adapter to take a standard power supply. Also, in a lot of builds, though not this one, Dell are using the T version of Intel CPUs which are great because they use less power so they can use a cheaper power supply but, clocked lower than the non-T version, they are also lesser performing parts. For office work, who cares but for productivity apps and some of the games where the CPU performance is a bottleneck, you perhaps want the non-T version of the CPU. A system builder could chose that T version of the CPU at the same price as the non T version but, unless they are building a tiny Mini-ITX build in a small case where it's hard to control the temperatures, they are more likely to chose a better performing non T version.

Would people be prepared to pay Dell a little more for a three year warranty, in that the parts bought separately give you the added value for money in the case where those parts do have longer warranties? I don't know but that's an added value consideration to a home build that I think gets overlooked. Equally, not everyone wants to build their own, just that if you want a graphics card that needs your computer to have a power supply with six pin power cables for the more powerful graphics cards, changing out a basic power supply with its octopus of cables and plugs and cable management is pain and about half of the hassle of building your own computer form the get go.

I am fully sympathetic to what you are saying because you are being specific and fair and I like these Dell deals for what they are, more than adequate for must uses and often decent value if you are happy with the one year warranty. I always enjoy your wise and patient posts! A very Happy Christmas period to you and yours.

Voted cold, not a Mac. Plus i could build one cheaper by stealing components from neighbours and foraging in the forest for wiring.
