Dell have chopped a massive £190 off the price of this today, they did loose the wireless key/mouse and speakers but these can be added back for much less than £190 if needed.

Comes with 2yrs warranty as standard too.

Remember Quidco for cashback savings.

Upgrades:
Logitech™ Cordless Desktop™ MX3000 Laser Keyboard & Mouse) - UK/Irish add £25.86 (replace mouse for this price)

Cheap and cheerful Dell™ A225 Stereo Speakers add £5.87 or go for your choice!

wow looks like this maybe the media centre im getting! is this a lot better than the yummy dell offer thats about? do we know if the tunes is single or dual?

Not a patch on your earlier post over the weekend Mike.

Basically the only extra you are getting is a £20 more expensive processor, and the tv tuner with remote, which can be sourced for less than £30.

But forget that, the dvd writer on this is outdated, the graphics card is not a patch on the 7900gs that they were giving over the weekend. So really in my eyes this is not really worth more than the one with that awesome card you posted. It could even be worth less if I bothered to weigh it all up.

All in all if I was wanting a machine I would look at Mikes other deals as they are a heck of a lot better value than this.

I think the price in this reflects the warranty and support which 90% of peoiple will not use.

Just my opinion guys, hate seeing people buy something and waste a few quid when they don't need to.

In defense I would have to say that Premium XPS Service, 2 Year (incl. Gaming and On-Site Support) must be worth £100 to anyone who needs it, plus dell charge £105 for their dual TV tuner which I cant get the specs on yet, so not a bad a deal if you need whats in the package, remember that some will want to buy and not touch, we dont all go routing inside to upgrade:thumbsup:

Wow, £105 for the tuner, I now understand mate. And what is that gamer thingy majingy? I thought it was just support or something.

And i know not everyone opens up the case and dibbles about in there, that is why I recommended the other one as it already has better components apart from the processor, and I was thinking they could add the tv card for a fw quid extra, but at over £100, blumming heck mate, I now know why you posted this as a good deal.

This system does not support an internal TV Tuner.

Well I find that very hard to believe nkhan, if you were inquiring about buying one after your order was delivered, maybe they wouldnt supply as it does state intigrated so its most likely part of the motherboard.

plus dell charge £105 for their dual TV tuner



I think there is a mistake on the Dell website at the moment as there is now the option to de-select the TV tuner to bring the price down by £105! This makes this a great deal at £643
