Not bad for that money. H added.

good price, heat added

Does this have wireless internet connectivity ?

Complaints on the site about keyboard and mouse but how much would that cost to replace? For what it is a good deal for a space-saving basic pc.

Cannot find any drivers or support info at eth Elonex UK website.
I woudl like to know if it has WiFi built in and is capable fo taking WIn 7 (ie has the drivers available.).

If this had an Apple badge, it would have cost 5x more... But does that make this hot?

Clearly it has no wifi, desktops rarely do, just buy a stick for a tenner.

Most of all in one actually do have wi-fi...For this price though you can't complain!

Low specs - don't expect to play many games - but good idea/price

Hot from me for price - specs arent that bad for the money and this would definitely suit a "light" user / web surfer, especially someone with limited space at home. Good find.

looks pretty good to me

Not bad specs and really good at that price. With a dual core Celeron & 2Gb of RAM it will be very quick running the supplied Windows XP.

Hot!

Great price for an all in one.
Is the chipset the intel 4500hd or the 3100?

hot ! there are no barriers to PC ownership now. I'd feel sorry if this was the best you could afford !

Easy now, £200 is still a lot of money to some people, especially in todays climate.

Not me perosnally, but im sure there are loads of people who would like to just have £200 to fritter on a PC.

The Acer Revo at £130 and £70 on a 17 screen from eBay
- or look out for one of those HannsG 19" screens for the same price. A lot of screens are stood from the base, and have vesa mounts which will hold the Revo -making you an All-In-One pc that is faster and a tad more reliable.
If this was my budget, that's what I would do - additional benefits include the wifi.

However, this price, and the drive, make it a pretty tempting hot deal!

We are in 2010, c'mon! For some people it would be a lot to shell out yes I do agree, but if you consider that about 10 years ago something like this would cost £2000......

Dual core, 17" lcd screen, dvd-rw 2gb memory, 250gb it's dead cheap!

Anyway you can collect instore making it £197!

Isn't a dual core celeron going to be faster than the Atom in the Revo?

Wow, you must be rich !

But this is a goodish deal purely as an internet PC

Yes about 3 times as fast as the n230 in the 3600.

LOL - you couldn't have bought one of these 10 years ago as the fastest CPUs were around a Pentium 2 or Pentium 3, so long ago I can't even remember TBH. But considering that I bought a p90 (around 90Mhz) in 1995 for over £1000 and didn't even have a cd-rom or soundcard, it shows you how much technology has advanced as well as come down in price.
If I were on a tighter budget, one of these would be great, a dual core celeron would still be OK for most computing tasks.

i thinkt his is faster a dual core celeron is faster than a atom single core anyway which is still slow but it also has a dvdrw drive too and its looks kinda nice i think also this also has 250 gb and 2gb ram hard drive the £130 model is 1 gb and 160gb hard drive the £200 dual core version is a better comparssion for this also that as linux and this has windows so i dont think it can be compared like that personally deal not for me but i think its a very good deal

I think the Revo is ideal if you want to connect to a large screen tv. Obviously it's much easier to connect than any laptop or desktop. It also has the hdmi for that purpose. This elonex all in one is meant to be used as a desktop computer. So it depends what the person's needs are obviously.

true personally ied go for the revo as the reson you mentioned but i dont think they can not be compared horses for courses depends on your needs even tho the revo deal and this both hot in my option but buy what suits you best

Mixed reviews on this model on Asda web site.
The problem with these all-in-one is that if one part fails (e.g. screen), the whole lot is gone.

perhaps this is an updated version of this one:

i would like to know the drivers, etc too so i can check if it works with other operating systems...

In reality, to a lot of people, PC's are disposable. But bear in mind that these items must be shown as fit for purpose, so if it fails within a reasonable time you'd have a very good chance of recompense.

I have an all in one from Dell. Had it for well over a year now. Great to have something space-saving compared to the huge noisy PC the kids have in their room.

I'd have to say "hot from me. An ideal little starter system.

Or I could have an i-fad for about double (at least) the price.


Err, I'd rather have this thanks.............



Plus, the mixed reviews, from about half a dozen people, show only two rating it poorly. One because it was faulty and had a reflective screen (?!?), fair enough I suppose, the other one star review was because of a cheap keyboard and mouse!!! Come on...................!!!!

......and they were rated on it when it was £400.

This is a good deal as the CPU is about 50% more powerful than a Dual Core Atom, but the comments about the reflective screen are slightly worrying as it's such an integral part of the PC.

Great find. H&R added

Damn hot deal, especially for a PC for grandparents or an extra spare PC (kitchen, etc).

Much faster than an Atom based thing and no more expensive (when you consider the monitor).

just remember to buy one of these,just a shame not built in

amazon.co.uk/gp/…D54

or you could always go for this "classy" zebra print laptop for a few quid more.

Nice deal. For the money you really cannot go wrong. Ok its not gonna play crysis, but who cares? 99% of people just want something that you can turn on, boot into some version of windows, with as little clutter as possible. And the specs arent half bad, just because uber powerful quad core PCs can be had for not much more, hell even the same price, doesnt mean that this thing is useless. Im still running P4 PCs with only a gig of ram and they are plenty fast enough for any task I require of them, run windows 7 just fine. So a modern CPU like this will run 7 just fine aswell. I wouldnt worry about drivers, im sure Windows update will find the correct drivers as this almost certainly has the usual intel all in one chipset. So really your getting an iMac lookalike, with an OS that everyone is very familiar with for £200, and if you want you can slap windows 7 on it and your bang upto date.

This would be great for anyone, and especially good for non techy/old people. SO much choice of PCs these days for little money. You can have a netbook, nettop, laptop, desktop, all in one, all for £200 just find what will suit your use most and get one. But also a little trip to the local tip will get you a nice capable machine these days for free if your prepared to sort out afew problems, although some may not need any sorting out whatsoever and just pop on OS disc in and away you go.

My uncle buys a new PC ever 2 years, he gets one from aldi special medion deals, fills it with rubbish and viruses and then buys another 2 years later. It annoys me as those PCs are bloody good bits of kit and all he does is browses and emails anyway. There should be a proper donation program in place so these PCS can be fixed up and given to people that will make use of them. They should get kids at colleges on IT courses to fix em, so then we are recycling and teaching IT students valuable skills. Sadly no one can be bothered in this backwards nation.
