Thanks Mate!

Looks good, always nice to see older machines 'recycled' ... You really don't need the latest and greatest to just check email and do most office work.

My mom back home still has her old dell back home .. it's a 2.4ghz pentium 4, but it does everything ... inc iPlayer.

HOT from me.

Will this have any usb ports for my web cam,keyboard etc?

no keyb or mouse, 15" monitor, no DVD, 30 day warranty, think the fujitsu is the better deal.

Couldn't agree more.

It's the fact that they are selling them at 150 quid, when the real value is as a basic "toy" is about 25 quid that sticks in my throat! :-(
Odd so many fans of these things on here, as when I tried to give BETTER away, no-one wanted it!

Not that great a deal. You can buy a 3Ghz PC for £70 and a 17" TFT for the same.

Am I missing something here?

ALSO

Fujitsu are dire. buy a Dell or a IBM or HP.

WHERE?

Fujitsu are dire

WHY?

Sigh.

Yep ...

I tried to sell my HP desktop and 20" tft (based around a XP 5000+ / 2gb / 250gb bla bla) ... no-one was remotely interested, think I had an offer for £100 ...

Anyway, sold it on - - - - for £250 in the end, guy collected with cash too.

er Ebay.

This is 2nd hand.

Also Big pockets had a deal very similar to this for £129 not too long ago.

Fujitsu are poor for support and their web site is a pain. Their PCs are notorious for being poorly designed....infamously placing power supplies in the middle of a case so you cant access anything. If you don't open PCs up (I do as I work in IT) this will not bother you.

SIGH!

eBay? Not a valid comparison, this is a respected organisation selling a REFURBISHED machine. (not Joe Public selling their old pc)

Great, but they're not doing it now are they? Prices yesterday don't count for much now.

Oh noes, well your average member of the public doesn't need to start opening the pc up ... they have no reason to.

I work in IT too, we don't open pcs - if it goes wrong, it goes back .. simple.

Anyway, I think is aimed at the SOHO environment ... not large businesses.

I wouldn't touch these with a barge pole to be honest if they're refurbised. They're likely to have been used to death, in which case they're overpriced.

I've never liked the stuff bigpockets sell to be honest.

These are rubbish, known for failing!

Oh for god's sake. It's £150! Including a TFT Monitor, OS and a 3 month warranty! Honestly, pay not a lot of money and get a very usable PC and yet folk moan. It's always the same with comments on these deals - ebay blah blah...couldn't give them away......oh, you could use it for word processing....plus the usual unsubstantiated 'opinions' on reliability.

Well, heat added, oh, and add this for free delivery. bigpockets.co.uk/pro…ng+

True on the face of it that's the way the deal looks but I think it's still important to consider the risk you take in buying refurbished equipment.

I personally would pay a little extra to avoid this risk. Perhaps buy a low end laptop for about £250. Granted that's more expensive but worth it for the warranty and the condition of the equipment.

That considered one could argue that this product is not much better a deal than a £250 laptop. The only difference is it may be within some peoples price range and for people who prefer desktops.
