Came across this earlier whilst looking at a system build, have to admit, if your not looking for the latest and greatest, but want something cheap and with a newer OS than say XP or older, this is actually quite a good deal for a ready to go out of the box machine, at less than £300. Aimed mainly at those that don't game i'd guess but still a capable machine for a number of tasks

Pics may not be of the exact item, but here's some specs, and blurb

• Intel Xeon Quad W3520 2.66GHz Xeon-Quad Processor
• 8GB DDR3 Memory / 250GB Hard Drive
• Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit Operating System
• Restore Partition*
• 10 USB ports; Connect all the other devices you need
• HD5450 512mb Graphics

The refurbished CELSIUS W380 is an all-purpose Tower for graphics applications like CAD and Adobe Photoshop as well as running most Gaming Programs. Powered by an Intel Xeon W3520 QuadCore 2.66GHz processor, it is the perfect machine for any business environment dealing with digital content creation and finance, for home it is a great multimedia and gaming platform. The Workstation is a noise-reduced system so if it wasn’t for the slight hum you’d never know it’s switched on. The Workstation supports SATA RAID 10.

The Fujitsu W380 Workstation comes pre-loaded with the new Windows 7 Professional

Launch Date is Q1'09 which doesn't mean it's bad but unless you require ECC support consider that you'll get more performance from an entry level i5 desktop CPU even taking into consideration that this supports Hyper Threading.

yup, but add OS cost to your i5 and where are you at then ?

That's what i always forget with these systems, they come with a legit OS already installed, an OS which is gonna set you back anywhere between 60-100 (aprox)
Not many home users need ECC support

you can get an AMD quad core for £60 which I reckon offers similar performance
for that reason I don't think its that good a deal. plus its refurbished

Where do they find these old machines?

If on a budget, I'd likely go with the FX-6300 Hex Core. Very good performer for the price, beats this.

I reckon you are wrong.

I reckon you are wrong.



that processor is 5 years old. a lot changes in 5 years. plus if its been in use for 5 years doubt it'll last that much longer! its a good spot but its not a good deal

Gotta be ex corporate, every few years companies upgrade/replace their IT (or a company goes broke) and someone refurbs their old PC's

Personally I reckon this is overpriced by about £150 when you factor in the age and the fact they've had probably 4years of 9am to 5pm use minimum since then.

They might have been a £1200 computer when new but PC's get obsolete pretty quickly
