Hi
I am after a micro pc for kid at university which is only for watching netflix movies / shopping, email etc. My budget is £150-£170 max but came across this one as cannot find any other good priced deal. I had seen a deal in November at microsoft store but that is out of stock at present. Thanks

Hmmm a bit expensive for a very low powered little desktop, albeit a nice tiny desktop, and a 20" monitor , you can upgrade memory and the SSD drive which will probably be essential.

Those with TARDIS or DeLorean's can take a trip down memory lane when the micro desktop was a mere £99 and the deal posted by a most fine fellow. There's some useful info on upgrades too LINK

Would a laptop or tablet be a better bet for uni? I'm thinking you could get a better performing laptop for £150 to £250

32gb is cutting it fine for a single drive machine. You'll have around 10gb free which could make OS updates tricky.

Agreed, even 64GB SSD's are really too small unless you don't plan to install anything much or save much.

I agree, the processor in this is listed as "Launched Q1,11"; it's coming up to its sixth birthday! oO

These usually came with the Celeron J1800 which was launched Q4 2013 so it's only 3 years old.....but it was a fairly low performing CPU when new so nothing to shout about.

The Dell page which OP linked to lists the CPU as Intel 2410 MHz Dual Core:
ARK Specs here

Monitor is £50, keyboard and mouse £10 so £200ish is a lot for the actual pc

I agree, £200 is throwing money down the drain on this. Atm I'm putting together entry level machine for £300-£400 that will let me upgrade it for months and years to come. Perhaps could have it for £50-£100 less with compromise on case design (nzxt) cpu cooler (g3900+entry lvl closed loop water cooler) memory (8-16gb) and psu (~500W bronze). I own good ssd and monitor in my current build so in the end works out similar and proves the value in thinking long term.

Yep, I got one of the Micro's for the mother in law and then upgraded from 8.1 to 10. It's not running anniversary cos it keeps running out of disk and she didn't bring it when she was visiting the UK in the summer. I have a nice upgrade 256 ssd waiting for her if she brings in this year though! 128 gb ssd is probably the minimum anyone should consider imho

Overpriced in my opinion.

The page states it's 2410MHz which is a way they can advertise the CPU frequency (2410Mhz / 2.4Ghz) without having to use the name Celeron which people may well avoid. These definitely didn't come out with the CPU you've listed as they'd be proud to use the 'i5 core 2410' in the advert whereas they're hiding the fact it's a Celeron J1800 that runs at 2410Mhz.

I would get a cheap laptop and a 2nd screen. The hp stream ones that are always on here cheap would do they're roughly the same spec and add a 22" screen for about £70.

That's bordering on misrepresentation!
Anyone pasting that description into Google will come up with the ARK page I did and think it's a reasonable, if old processor.
There was me thinking that Dell were a trustworthy company!

Hi
She wants to watch movies , general browsing with larger screen so thought of going for micro PC. Have you come across any reasonable priced spec micro lately?

To be honest Dell were selling this and stating the CPU very clearly but it seems AWDit are the ones being a bit economical with the CPU description!
