Found 5th Mar 2008
This PC offers everything you could want from a home/office computer. Not only is it great for accessing the internet, but with a 3GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor, 512MB RAM and a 160GB hard disk drive, it can handle the very latest games, entertainment, education and productivity titles. It has a DVD writer for storing and sharing photographs, movies, music and data; as well as a top-quality , keyboard, LG optical mouse and stereo speakers . And as if that?not enough, we? also throwing in a 1-year parts-and-labour warranty 90-day anti-virus, anti-spam and parental control software suite. If you were to buy a similar-specification PC elsewhere it would cost you much more.

Great PC for the money, couldn't build the same spec machine for the money. £129.99 + Shipping and Handling (£7.04) inc vat!

Hmmmm... somehow I don't believe that. It may have been true when it was written, but certainly isn't now (eg Crysis)

There's no mention of a graphics card in the spec so I presume its onboard in which case you're right - it sure won't handle the latest games, lol.

I bought the Amd 4200 x2 version of this Pc from another company (Dinopc) 6 months ago and woulld not recommend it, Case is flimsy power supply and cpu fan sound like jet engines also the front usb ports will only work as usb 2 if bios is set to optimised defaults, which only use's 32mb for graphics.

So my point is if your after a pc for this price be prepared to live withthe noiseor spend plenty of dosh on upgrading also Dinopc was only a fiver extra for X2.

No Operating System Either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think you are right on the latest games part, but come on, try and build this with parts from ebuyer or scan and it'll be more that that!!!

have you ever tried to contact this company about returns? they totally ignore you! :?

The object of these post's to try and give informed opinion of the item posted good or bad.
The comments are not aimed at you personally. And if you read my post properly it say's i would not recommend it. i probaly should have said spend a few extra quid and get a Dell or similar.

I bought one. It's great except for slow graphics and my copy of Win XP Pro didn't recognise the SATA HD. Changed the BIOS setting so it emulated ATA and it installed fine.

I’ve bought a number of Dell Vostro systems from the Outlet Store for around £160 with a much better spec than this and they came with an O/S.
The only good thing about this is the warranty but I’d rather spend the £137 on better components and forgo the warranty. Voted cold.

I wasn't commenting on the price but on their claim that it would handle the latest games - and it WONT!

You would need a decent graphics card to meet their claim and there is no mention of the graphics at all in the technical specification therefore (in trading standards language) it is not fit for purpose!

that Fujitsu could do with a Hotdeal of its own.

Looks good for Ubuntu. And at least it is dual core.

What an amusing post.

Thats cheap, but you'd do a lot better by spending a little bit more and getting a much better PC from DELL. THey seem to have some impressive deals on a regular basis.
