Seems like a bargain to me

From reading the description, I'm not sure if this comes with the OS on CD/DVD, or just preinstalled...

It says theres a recovery partition, but also says that you may need other hardware to install Windows 7?

No Gigabit Ethernet? I have a 6 year old HP/compaq desktop and that has Gigabit.....

Gigabit ethernet is a fairly specialised requirement.


The graphics card is the very bottom end and about as fast as good integrated graphics and the CPU is a relatively low-end one these days so it doesn't seem like an excellent deal.

How on earth is the processor "low end"?! If anything it's on the middle-upper range of processors.

One word: Celeron!

Seems like a good price to me, especially when compared to the recent Dell deals on th Vostro. I don't understand why it is not being voted hotter. This is £330 after quidco cashback.
