Hi, amended price to include £5 delivery which is added at checkout stage

38434155-3P4qv.jpg
Delivery is usually free but thanks for amending @sigma
Decent for the price.
Got this last time around and it has 4x USB 3.0 ports and 6x USB 2.0 ports.
Not the 10x USB 2.0, as stated on here and the Itzoo site.
I have a dell from last offer I added ssd and copied Windows 10 and use as a media player watching Netflix amazon hbo now on vpn
Thanks ordered. In the past I've bought a Dell AlienWare i7 for my lad and it's been great (although it had to be returned within the warranty, but it was hassle free) and recently took delivery of 2 x Dell 24" monitors. Good company to deal with

Edit. My order says it comes with a 480GB SSD, usb keyboard/mouse and WiFi dongle! Bonus!

Yeah I've done two now, they run great, but you have to be very careful when following the guide
Desktop memory is much more expensive than laptop memory. These only take ddr3. Integrated graphics is very poor . No 4k possible.

Cost difference is negligible.

I wouldn't think this would make a particulary good media player as it's not tiny, probably not too quiet or energy efficient about 7 years old and nothing special and certainly not optimised for home theatre but fine for small office/home office use. 8GB ram means you're highly unlikely to need more on a PC like this.

I should point out that I'm using the same i5 CPU as my main desktop and it's absolutely fine for daily tasks, light gaming and video editing. Amazing that a 7 year old CPU like this is still perfectly usable for many tasks.

Got the Refurbished Dell 9010 SFF Computer i5 3.2Ghz 8GB Windows 10 previous deal for £90 is this better/worse? Thinking of another for kids but don't seem Dell 9010 being restocked anytime soon they said so this next closest thing for sub £100?
Cold! No band 20. No QC56.0. No moon on a stick!

Great spot OP. It's a great price for a decent bit of kit that has become a bit more niche now - not many free seem to want a desktop pc, but for those that want a cheap one that'll do the basics and more besides - ta da! Heat from me

Yeah i really struggled with mine following a 100% guide! Ended up having to buy a USB sound card and a brand new Nvidia 720 2GB just to get the graphics working in non 640 x 480 mode. I'd taken 3 days off work to do jobs in the house and ended up wasting all my time on that guide haha I was about to give up, wipe the machine and put debian on it when the graphics just magically worked! Was nice running sierra on a 4 core 4 thread with ssd...logic pro and maschine just worked instantly.

I'm a sucker for punishment as i gave the other one to step daughter and i've gone and purchased the same again...second time lucky i hope.
I already have this btw and have it setup with two SSD's dual booting with Win10 and Win7 with a thrid HDD for storage. Runs nice and quick for normal day to day desktop tasks. Havent upgraded the memory yet as havent felt the need but probably will do as its fairly inexpensive on ebay for another 8gb. Graphics are fine for my needs but this will take a low profile GT710 GT1030 or GT1050
Sold Out!
Add a low powered GPU to this like a gtx 750ti or a 1050ti, and this could become a pretty good gaming pc.
