Budget restraints mean I probably have to go for base unit only. I want it to have a dvd rw with +/- capability. I'd rather it had graphics card and not just an integrated job. 512mb ddr is preferred. I definitely want it to have Windows pre-installed, and the unit ready to use straight from the box. And at least 12 months of onsite warranty.
Now, I've seen the Jal Neola as probably the best kit for the money, but they are built to order and I was offered delivery in 6 weeks!!! I need the pc asap, unfortunately, and so this is out of the question.
I was hoping for advice - I really need to get a pc, I don't need to much of a high spec, but I don't want to do with out the requirements as set above. And most importantly, delivery in less than 10 days!! Thanks James
Thanks chaps, but not quite what I was hoping for. Dell only give you on site warranty if you pay an extra £100, and the base units aren't highly specced. The second suggestion was for a systems with no windows installed, so not quite as desired! Any other suggestions?
