Worth noting that the price is just for the BOX. I brought a similar system from Dell before xmas and got 20" monitor, speakers, extra DVD writer for £735 using voucher codes to get 25% reduction in the purchase price and free delivery....

Yes I did notice that. Im going to buy a 22" monitor separately. That will add another £200 or so to the total cost for a good one, Samsung or LG.

Where did you find 25% off voucher codes ?

  STREETWORK 20:39 04 Jan 2008

Just use google and type in 'voucher codes', select GB sites only, there are several and its is trial and error, but worth it...

I just bought a dell xps 420. Unfortunately, I had no choice but to accpet it with vista. But if all else fails I will install XP from a redundant pc.
