I thought it was pretty good (for what Dell normally sell) - sold by the manufacturer, good expansion possibilities, decent looking machine and up-to-date specs?

Bought one of these when there was a £100 voucher, as it had sufficient grunt for photo editing. I'm happy.

I had the lower spec of this - the i5 version of this. What a lovely computer absolutely brilliant, powerful, EXTREMELY quiet computer with a small form factor, I think the price for components is good, but not really hot! But doesnt deservse to be this cold.

Yeah I agree.. it's not a bargain by any means but it's a decent deal!

This is a cold UK deal.

It's actually quite a good deal, but alas, you can't please all of the muppets all of the time

It's so kind for Dell to include a whole 32gb SSD - that would last a whole week before filling up and requiring you to do a clean up.

Update: you know what I put this build together on partpicker out of boredom, and it's actually pretty cost effective. Equivalent build on partpicker came to £663.54, I'm sure I could have picked a cheaper motherboard and the a key for the OS picked up from Kinguin or something, but it comes pretty close to discounted price.

I can't see any mention of a small form factor case on Dell's website, only the normal medium tower - actually a little larger than most at 33L.

It'll be set up as a hard drive cache, ala Hybrid drives, not something you can install to.


It's a reasonable price for the components but it just seems like an odd choice of components. Most people shouldn't consider buying a £700 desktop without a reasonable sized (240GB+) SSD. People who need maximum performance for the money might live without an SSD but most of those would either want to save the money from the graphics card too or would want a more powerful graphics card.
