Desktop PC recommendations please.

Found 8th Jan 2018
Good evening, I'm looking to buy a desktop PC for my son's to use for homework, web browsing, YouTube, printing and playing robblox I think it's called.

Im not tech savvy when it comes to such things and a laptop I bought a year or two back is now just too old to be fit for purpose.

Can can anyone recommend an inexpensive machine for under £150 please?

We already have a monitor, keyboard and mouse etc.

thanks in advance.

Your budget is too low for a decent desktop. Maybe consider getting your son a 2nd hand tablet for now.
You will need to look refurbed or second hand to get a good buy at this price.

Quick nose on eBay shows this in your price band

Should be fairly nippy with the ssd and run roblox - need to add a wifi dongle to it if wanting wireless and if wanting some more changing games later on you can add a graphics card but as it ticks above minimum for roblox (not most challenging)

Thanks, for the reccomendation. we have a cable in that room so no need for wifi. Looks like it fits the bill, thanks again.

Fantastic deal. I'd say you would get little change from £1000 when that was bought new.
