We're not keen on 'diary' type threads.

The chances are that everything will be fine, and I hope you enjoy your new computer.

What operating system are you going to put on the machine, as this could add another £60/£100 plus on the cost.Would it not have been wiser for the supplier to have installed the O/S, so that you would have had a fully 'straight out of the box' working unit?.

I ordered from pcspecialist on 12 October - delivery was to be 12 to 15 working days - ie 3 Nov. So far they have kept me up to date with progress - its in the testing stage at present. So its fingers crossed for the weekend!!

My pc arrived yesterday. I do have amonior problem with it - they replied to my email in less than an hour.

What monitor did you order

  hastelloy 18:34 03 Nov 2006

I didn't order a monitor - I use a Digimate 19" TFT. Just noticed my typo - amonior should be a minor!!
