    at first exam it appears "good" for the money, a few details missing that a techie would like to see, like individual brands or spec of components, like speed of memory.
    interesting on 2 points
    1. 32Bit windows installed, delivered with 64bit?? not sure what that means? could make a big diff in value, as an upgrade later if needed would cost approx £90
    2.medion data port 2, absolutely useless if no caddy included and really shouldn't even be mentioned in the description if not included
    Without those you would prob save a £25(est) building one of sim spec out of the cheapest components, but lose 3yr warranty and possibly the 2 above features,
    Yes its a good buy
