Hi, looking at pcs for my parents. They need a new one for the office. Already have a flat screen monitor, so just need the base unit and new keyboard. Will use it for general word processing etc. Have seen this one at novatech

Works out at £441.20 delivered with xp home installed.

Any thoughts on spec, price, novatech etc??

Not the cheapest on the net, but I have used them frequently and there customer service is second to none.

I have never seen a bad post here against them.

I was building a computer for a christmas gift and the parts were held up because the PSU I wanted was out of stock. A quick phone call and I was offered a better one at no extra cost and received the components 2 days later.

Re the spec a bit pricey for general word processing.

If only being used for office use then a cheaper model would be more than adequate.

Nice enough computer but in some ways its overkill for word processing etc, a cheaper one would do the same job but if other interests rear there head it should do for them as well.
I've bought a couple of Novatech barebones units and they have been fine.

Cheers. i wanted to get them one that was a bit over spec, as you said just in case they get a bit more into computers. Rather than having to upgrade later. Many thanks for your replies.

That's what I have been using 12+ hours a day for two months — no problems at all - very prompt delivery and good support by email or online chat.

Inside the case is very tidy with loads of space for ventilation. Not too noisy either. I got a 1 Gbyte USB stick for backup/transfer of files.
