Thank you all for the advice. I must admit I am leaning towards Dell as I have just bought a Dimension 9200 desktop from them and been very impressed with the performance and service. The inspiron 6400 also has dedicated graphics which, I assume would stop the system robbing RAM to run Vista's graphics? I might wait a few more days and see what pcworld & comet have in their Easter sales. I also like the look of; click here from an aesthetic point of view. Thanks again guys!

If you want to wait a few weeks, keep checking this website click here as Dell change their prices at least twice a week. Someone on here posts the latest dell offers, usually twice a week, Sat & Thurs.

Good luck with the buy!
