Hi All,

A neighbour has given me a leaflet with the following details on it. What do you think?

17 inch monitor
AMD Athlon 2000XP+
40gb 72000rpm Hard drive
48x24x48 CDRW Drive
256mb DDR memory
GeForce 4MX Graphics
56k modem
10/100 Ethernet connection
Black Keyboard, mouse and speakers

Price...... £399
(doesn't say if thats pre vat)

Windows XP Home Edition...£62

thanks for any advice........mike

thats very good spec for the money, read the small print very carefully who's the company?

I don't think that you will get a 72000 rpm hard drive. It's a good spec with a 7200 rpm hard drive

I've just noticed it does say at the bottom of the leaflet

'Suppliers to Education,Government and Corporate Accounts throughout the UK'.

As the leaflet was given to me by a neighbour from work I'll check if they sell at this price to individuals.

So, I'm not sure if they supply to individuals at this price, I'll ring them tomorrow and find out.

A company local to me, sells machines with a 80gb HD,but otherwise similar specifications for £499.00 inc.They also give a 4 year RTB warranty into the price.

Dont bother about suppliers to edc etc many other companies state this in their adverts.
They sell to anyone.
£468 if the original is ex vat
Have a look around the web or buy a copy of Micro Mart they have a lot of low cost systems for you to compare prices with.

I could build the same PC with same specs but at a lower price. If you would like me to since I have nothing to do at the mo, then ask me. Regards.
