After several posts of desktops on here I thought this looked good value from Morgan for an i5 . Don,t know what wattage the power supply is though.

These are good quality machines, however I'd expect to pay 150, and I'd suggest paying a little more and getting the 8300 model that has usb3 and is a little newer.. Or getting the 8200 and putting in a cheap ssd
Anyone know what mobo is in them

​It's a made for hp mobo, you can Google the model to get the exact specs, I sold a lot of these machines they are very reliable, though I stick with the newer 8300s and g1 800s now (the 2 models that superseded this)

Agreed, solid PCs but seems a bit steep for a PC that's probably at least 3 years old.
How many internal drive slots does this have?
Be aware you can't easily upgrade the power supply on these ( its a 320w in the tower case versions) . They use a non-standard design. The motherboard has a non standard power plug arrangement, so also can't be changed.
So if you want to upgrade the graphics card you are limited to PCI-E powered cards only. The GTX 750TI is about the fastest you can fit.

These go for around £150 on Ebay . Often cheaper if you go for the smaller form cases - these have lower rated power supplies though..

The 8300 model also has the same non-standard power supply and motherboard arrangement, so don't go for this thinking its any better for a cheap gaming PC.
The HP pro3500 does have a standard power supply and motherboard - so is better for gaming use as you can cheaply and easily upgrade the power supply if you wish.
I don't know how old the PC is but the CPU came out in the first quarter of 2011, HD Graphics 2000, what's the appeal, is there a big software bundle, what am I missing here?

You are missing passmark scores of nearly 6000.
It may be old , but its definately not slow. Show me PCs this fast that are cheaper.
That said, the price should be closer to £150 - they often are from refurbishers selling on Ebay.

Exactly and there is nothing wrong at all with the CPU, specifically it's the 2011 integrated HD Graphics 2000 and dated sub system spec that bother me, that to bring it faintly up to date with a cheap graphics card for HD video work, if that matters to the customer of course, and/or perhaps a larger HD, a USB 3.0 card, a wifi card, etc, the appeal at that price wains further, perhaps. £150 seems closer to the mark, as far as I can see.
