I'm looking to buy a new PC system up to £1000. Toys R Us Cybermax P4 3.6 ghz with 17" TFT monitor looks pretty nifty and almost gets my vote but...........

I am also drwarn to

Tiny 5-3500 PCI Express £799 + delivery. It has aP4 530 proc. 1024 ddr ram, 400 gb hdd, etc

Trouble is Tiny never seem to be in the top 10 lists and they have had a poor reputation with their customer servce.

Some advice would be appreciated here before I part with my cash. By the way the machine is not really for gaming but mainly arbitraging online with the exchanges which takes up a lot of system resources.

Toys'R'Us computers are from the Medion stable. They have good specification, sound prices and reasonable Medion aftercare back-up.Toys'R'Us are only the selling agent and you will find that their staff have very limited computer knowledge.

The 'new' Tiny are still a softly softly approach, due to 'I suspect' past 'old' Tiny company procedures. Some customers are still a little suspect as to specifications and expensive helpline assistance. You will also find that complaints about installed software are in various forums, and it may pay to look into this further.

Why not look at some of the latest Dell special offers, which are advertised on a regular weekly basis on-line and in the media. You will find that some of the deals cover the same specification machine but the price procedures and differences can vary quite considerably, depending on the advert placement and location.
