Please don't buy this. It's a 7 year old system that wasn't particularly powerful when it was released. It's about 1/5th as powerful as a similarly-priced refurb Core2Duo laptop, and about 1/20th as powerful as a modern i5-based PC. It's just old junk from a disreputable supplier.

Not a bad present for a kid who wants a computer xmas, which includes the monitor.

Very good price, although it's a refurb.

You are right! At this price a bargain.

Meh... can get a much much better spec laptop (core 2 duo) for a similar price. Pentium 4 sucks.

You'd be better off buying this for a little bit extra schtrade

Sorry ignore my link...i didn't read properly...didn't realise a monitor was included.

Exactly! At that price it would still be good value if you melted it all down for scrap...

Cheap but not a very good deal. I was using a 3.2ghz P4 Dell 745 Tower until a few weeks ago and it struggled to play a Youtube video. Its only going to be useful for word-processing, playing music and dvd’s. Should be okay for net browsing as long as you have a flash blocker installed.

had a bunch of these back in 05/06 from memory they ran real hot. p4 sucked in power like you can't believe. really surprised its lasted this long (yes this deal does suck)

The world....

... make it two. Perhaps, buy one get one?

This should be in the skip - they're charging £69.99 for something that's worth nothing. The last PC I scrapped was better than this.

This pc is useless.

This is better spec then some of the machines in our production office!

A bit like you!

For xp youd need to up the ram to 2gb or it will drag its feet terribly. Worth dropping a trimmed down Linux distro though.

Stop voting this hot, some poor old grandma might buy it.

This is utter garbage, I have routers with more power than this thing. All this will do is make a racket, eat all your electricity and stutter when you ask it to play Youtube past 480p.

No, it is not good "for the kids to do essays and a bit of web surfing". Load. Of. Cobblers.

Wtf? Whoever posted this should be banned. This is no longer classified as a computer.

Some company will have received money to dispose of these

Its many years since we skipped our last D530s and paid someone to take them away.

Yeah, sorry even with the LCD monitor I still don't rate this.... sure it's better than nothing....just.

Its old, slow & will use more power than a Duo or Core processor-ed equivalent. Its more than likely ex company PC's & screens that has had 7+ years of hard use in a company followed by a few months in a scrap cage then sold to some disposal company for peanuts and wiped over with a dirty rag before being sold on.
If your lucky you will get a spare or hot desk PC & screen that's had an easy life, if your unlucky you will get one that was used as a domain server in a test environment on 24x7 for seven years like the ones I threw into a scrap cage for the company I worked for two years ago they were all D530's

As someone said, these will be coming from someone who is being paid to dispose of them. The fact it's XP Pro is the giveaway and at this price you are really just paying for delivery because the rest is worth nothing. My phone is a better spec than this! We still have some PC's at work that are similar spec to this but they do very basic tasks.

Buy a Raspberry Pi starter kit for less and plug it into the TV. It'll do a better job and be inherently safer at the same time.

Don't buy this for someone you actually like.

The deal is still on but needs to be expired to save someone the torment of buying what can only be described as a pile of s h one t come on do the right things people and kill the post and save someone the heart ache and embarresment

Agreeded this is way to old. You can't sell a p4 on eBay for 99p but does anyone know of better buget deals like this. Just with a basic spec that will work lol

Good luck trying to stream a YouTube video full screen smoothly even in 480p on this POS!

i Can't believe they have the cheek to sell these, my mobile phone is faster than this !

POS ---- Love it

This is a miles better buy for cheaper:

I think you would have to pay me a lot of money to make me go back to a pentium 4.

Got a p4 3ghz with 1gd ram in work and all I want to do is put my fist through the screen when I use it

Some here, the majority of the production machines that were bought before my tenure are like this too, and nobody wants to replace them despite adding 1-2mins hourglass time to any common task. I convinced them to shell out £80 on a C2D-based HP workstation and people now fight like animals to use that one, rather than just paying up and replacing the lot.

Intel and their goddamn marketing department deserve a long time in the ovens for the market presence of the P4.

most basic things a pentium 4 processor can handle like web browsing. but i would pay more for a much more powerful sandybridge pentium or amd apu.
