You think? I thought it was a great deal just with the monitor

>8GB DDR2 800MHz Memory (4 x 2GB)

8Gb of ram is totally wasted in a 32 bit version of Windows.

32 bit Windows can only use 4Gb maximum, and this includes the memory in your graphics card.

In fact having 4Gb plus your graphics card memory can even slow your computer down.

To be honest 3Gb of memory is probably the most you need (or can use) in 32bit Windows.

Anything above that is a waste of money.

Thats one concern, however it doesnt say if its 32 or 64 bit. You can always put 64 bit on, and have a good machine for years to come

the os is free with this if you look at customising it in the options. you can always get any other os on there via legal or backhanded methods. for what it is, its an awesome piece of cheap kit!!!!

Problem is, there are few applications using 64 bit capability - including Photoshop!

and then a 22" samsung monitor for £185

In total in came to under £680 for the lot.

This machine is good value but it depends what your needs are, 8Gb of ram as someone else points out unless you have a 64bit OS there is no point.
The dell system has a more powerful graphics card which was my main reason for purchasing.

Ok its an outlet machine but this is my 5th and never had any problems at all with them, my cousin 1 mesh system and now on his 3rd replacement.

They have featured on Watchdog in the past,

For a retail system it is a good price.

Cold for me. A mismatched system and the 8GB of RAM is completely pointless for the vast majority of people even if they do give the option of a 64 bit version of Windows which isn’t clear.
As someone already stated you can get a better spec XPS 420 from Dell for about £450 - 500 and then buy a 22” TFT with the change and get a full 3 year warranty with the monitor. The XPS has an onsite warranty also with 24/7 phone support.

Mesh customer services are less than stellar. Do a web-search for it. I have some friends who have bought from them and our company also has. They and us were let down very badly. I would never order from them again and would not recommend them to anyone.
