What's the CPU?


According to the easily read specification on the Amazon web page for this product, the CPU is an Intel Core Duo running at 2 Ghz. It also clearly states that the ram is 4GB. The ram is also listed in the first line of the original post along with the processor type.

Very little RAM - and you're taking pot luck with the monitor and keyboard. You could pick up a 3rd Gen i5 for this price - get a monitor for free or for very little money off Gumtree, wireless adaptor couple of quid if you need it. This really isn't cheap for what it is! Not moaning, just trying to let non techy people know that there is better value out there.


It's 60 quid.
Ssd is 20, 8gb of crucial is 32. Easy upgrades.

You need to add a graphic card and upgrade the CPU to a Core 2 Quad CPU. Something like a GTX 750 TI + Q9550 click.

You can buy one off eBay for about £3.

I bought one last time deal was on here as a present when they we're offering HP and or Dell computers. Absolute bargain, very quick drlivery , basic browsing office work. Ideal as a back up. Can upgrade with low graphic card and ssd if required but power supply will limit.
Jump on gumtree or Facebook and you will find people giving this spec machine away for free. Amazed people are on here talking about paying money to upgrade one after purchase, save yourself heartache and get a much better machine on ebay for the same money

Totally agree
Will it play the sims 4?
Great deal. Heat added. Nice spare pc for the kids to play retro games on and surf the net

Pretty weak. You couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding with that cpu. It would probably just about clear Chrome's min operating spec.

I bought this setup at a slightly cheaper price from the same seller a few weeks ago. Couldn't fault it with a widescreen monitor, new keyboard and mouse. I've stuck a SSD in and it literally flies! Backup from the seller's been good too with a couple of queries I had. Can't fault it for the price along with a year's guarantee.
How are people moaning with a price at sub £70? What do you actually expect to get? It’s cheaper than a rubbish tablet, just expect it to run slow and you won’t be disappointed.

People expect a lot for their money, after all that's what this website is all about. (Or buying anything and everything that sounds cheap) I get where people are coming from, the specs are not great by today's standards. My phone is faster than this. Alas, my phone was 5x more.

Is it good for surfing the web? Yes. YouTube videos? Maybe. Games? No. Emulators? Yes. Office? Yes. Will you tear your hair out due to load times? Yes. Can you get something better at this price point? Probably not.

Exactly, if you buy old tech you have to expect old tech. In my opinion you are better off getting a cheap laptop which would compare like for like in the performance, and has the added feature of being portable. However everyone has their own preferences

Don’t recommend someone does that. If this can even support a Core 2 Quad it’s still way below the requirements and will put heavy thermal load on the chassis, but worse still, that and the GPU will be putting immense pressure on the weak point, which is a 10yo+ PSU. And I still don’t think it would run Fortnite to a playable standard.

I agree. £70-100 will buy you a nice branded 2nd-4th gen i5 laptop from one of many ex-lease refurbishers.

Lol it’t not meant for 4k video editing. It will be perfect for basic tasks and run fine with a £20 ssd put in it.

I’m still using a 10+ year old Core2Duo Dell desktop that was my Dad’s and was only good for the bin until I swapped the slow exhausted HDD out for an ssd and added a couple of quid usb wifi adapter. To my surprise with a fresh install of Win 10 it flew. The kids have been using it for years in the kitchen for youtube and iplayer and web browsing for homework when round mine and it’s been faultless.

Ditto, cheap SSD gave an old dual core 8500 a new lease of life
An SSD will make this quite usable for web and email so in that respect it's OK and cheap to get a complete, albeit very old, desktop PC.

It is of course absolutely ancient in computing terms, probably between 10 and 12 years old, which is remarkable that such an old machine is still usable. It wasn't long ago when we were all upgrading every 18 - 36 months just to do the basic stuff

If you're going use volume licensed OEM keys found on eBay which Microsoft may blacklist for not complying to the terms you may as well go and do HWID activation using an Win 7 to 10 upgrade path using a genuineticket.xml (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\ Windows\ClipSVC\GenuineTicket)

It's free and more legit than those OEM stuff.

Also digital goods sold on eBay have no buyer back guarantee but then again you only spent £3 for a key.

Those OEM keys can also be found on piracy forums for free and I guess these sellers are them...

We had a couple of these to get our business going and they aren’t even capable of running Microsoft office at a bearable speed.

That's not true at all. These are exactly the same computers running in the vast majority of NHS hospitals. We have them at ours and they're filled with poorly written, clunky, massive software, as well as the usual suite of office, chrome, as well as x-ray viewing web apps. They're not super slick but they run absolutely fine. Well enough to manage patients in a busy emergency department and wards.
How can anyone say not really good enough for what is pocket change for a computer. My daughter can do her homework. play some roblox and make some fun powerpoints. If you want a i7 quad core that can play fortnight, pay more. This can be upgraded easily for cheap if you need a bit more grunt for some tasks but if you need more grunt, a £60 office PC probably isnt for you. HOT from me and thanks for posting.
Got one 2 months ago just for permanent connection to the Internet torrent downloading and it's great for 65 quid

Just checked mine it’s got 2gb of ram and a core2duo E4500 2.2 and 32 bit Win10 Pro.

People think you must have 8gb ram - no Win10 works fine with 2gb just upgrade it based on your app requirements.

Ours has nothing installed on it except Firefox with a single tab for either youtube or iplayer and it’s perfect.

i'm doubtful that it 'literally flies'...
Indeed it does mate. I’m careful what I install though.
