not sure how this got voted hot. overpriced for what you get.
I was always wondering what kind of person buys these crappy, overpriced and slow machines? This computer would be obsolete 5 years ago already.

Crap. Should be around £200. At this price, you can get an i3 laptop!
@CosminD83 , @uberjuba For £299 or less, What PC Desktop would you buy that is better / faster, currently available on UK market ? If it runs current OS's such as Windows 10 and runs current office software why is it obsolete ?

after a 2 minute search. this ebuyer.com/816…003
sure i could find a better deal if i spent another 10 minutes. and its obsolete because it's slower older architecture
@uberjuba Thanks for looking. Not heard of Punch Technology before (but looking around I see they design and manufacture in Cheshire, UK) The system you pointed out has Ubuntu OS rather than Windows 10, and there is no DVD drive, no keyboard and no mouse. Yes the Punch system has an Intel Core i3 processor which I would tend to prefer, but overall the HP system looks out of the box more functional and better value. You say the HP with the AMD A9-9430 APU is slower older architecture - but in practice for an entry level Windows 10 PC will it really make that much difference if you are not doing high end gaming or running really demanding apps. Trying to establish more precisely how AMD A9-9430 APU compares to an Intel Core i3 processor. Regards.

The system I've pointed to is not for high end gaming. Yes it will make a difference. If you prefer windows a key will cost you £2 and installing it will take 15 mins. I don't think I've used a dvd drive in 5+ years nor know anyone else that has. Is this your 1st computer? If not I'm gonna guess you have a keyboard n mouse. If not for a similar spec of keyboard n mouse will cost less than £10 extra. As for the Apu, yes it will make a difference. Google it. The a9 is a laptop Apu. As such is low power (also referred to as limiting). This also places limitations on the motherboard so will be using slower ddr3l ram. Overall this is a slow and old machine not worth £150. Anybody looking for a new pc should look at anything else. Until amd release desktop ryzen Apus you should only be looking at Intel for general everyday use.
