it means that they are part of the motherboard. not as good as a dedicated graphics card (which you can buy seperately) but they are fine for everything except for playing newer games

why cold ???? point me in the direction of something better at this price please.

It says Packard Bell on the box that says it all

for most people onboard graphics are more than acceptable, were not all gamers !
if you break down the componants and price them up ( which i did using scan ) then you would be hard pushed to build one for this money, let alone have windows 7 as well.
They are a compact little machine, with front memory card slots and audio sockets , plus 2 usb 2.0 slots as well.
It can be got for £349 without a monitor, but includes mouse and keyboard, which are fully functional ones, ok , no side buttons on the mouse to scroll back and forward , but it does the job.

I don't play games on my pc so don't need a better graphics card just like a lot of other people. No point paying extra for something you are not going to make use of. For Quad Core processor its a good price. Heat from me,

took me 5 minutes to find a better one and £70 cheaper, still no … took me 5 minutes to find a better one and £70 cheaper, still no dedicated graphics but at that price £70 cheaper and about £170 cheaper than it was earlier in the year, spend the money saved on a graphics cardhttp://www.hotukdeals.com/item/566819/acer-x1300-desktop-pc-with-19-pc-mo



hardly like for like is it !!! We could all go and quote differnet spec machines cheaper.

amd cpu ( and at 2.1ghz not a 2.5ghz like the packard bell)
Only 533fsb not 1333fsb
2mb cache not 4mb
2gb ram
vista ( so that will cost you £16 to upgrade to win 7 )

Cheers, I might actually get this. I`ve had a packard bell running for 4 years now and except for the usual reboots, its been on for those 4 years as well. Not had any problems with it. I`m due another pc, so I`m tempted to get this. Voted hgot from me

I brought this a week ago online and have no complaints at all. Very very quiet machine can't hear it unless u really try to. I got it for £409 wit COMP5 code but that may have ran out by now

look into this before you buy

Problem with these small cases is that you cannot add a graphics card later anyway as there is no space inside, and the PSU is not standard. So even upgrading the processor would be difficult. Not such a good deal when there is no upgrade capability.

with manufacturers changing the socket that a processor uses every 5 minutes upgrading it isnt as issue, you would just replace the lot. By the time you have changed the processor, ( and probably the motherboard...oh, and the ram as thats gone from sdram , to ddr, ddr2 and now ddr3) so who knows whats around the corner.

for someone who wants a PC to use ( not play with or upgrade to play cod or whatever ) then this is a great little package.
Just installed one of these for someone who upgraded from their 256mb celeron system and they were over the moon with it.
