can you get a better one at a better / same/ similar price?
You may want to look at refurbished devices such as this: other similar models).

This will leave you with some spare change even after upgrading the ram and getting a larger disk drive (possibly even a SSD one), and will result in a much more powerful machine. As a bonus you'll likely to get a Windows license (likely to be Vista Pro or Win 7 pro) thrown in for good measure.

If you're patient, you can find configurations with 4GB of memory for the same price with the company in the link (I'm not affiliated with them, but bought two Grade B computers from them -a Lenovo X61 and an M58p. Both of these machines were great with very little trace of usage... but YMMV)
No operating system supplied (rare for Packard Bell / PC World)
Sorry but terrible processor and graphics. Cold
only good for home server
A Dell Vostro 270 desktop on their Business outlet section can be grabbed for around this sort of price often with Win7 or Win8 ... ok it might have 2GB ram but the Dual core G2020 CPU is pretty good and probably better than this. Many outlet products are new & cancelled orders.

Not much at the mo but earlier this week there were several models from around £195 delivered inc VAT.
