  AubreyS 20:45 15 Feb 2004

A friend of mine wants a new PC for about the above price. Any ideas anyone?

Yes it meens a Board with onboard graphics and sound etc to keep the price down

  AubreyS 20:48 15 Feb 2004

Thats not a problem. Am thinking of building one or any out there already built for about that price?

Hi AubreyS. I have just bought two new computers,
one priced at £404 and one at£457-99. These are basic PCs, no printer,scanner or other periferals.
If your friends already got a pc he will have the
mouse and keyboard anyway. I can provide details if required.

Thanks Meshuga, It looks like Gandalf's one will be a good buy, comes with everything including scanner. Thanks.

If you friend does go for GANDALF <|:-)> suggestion,be quick.


Have a look at the Dell site, £380 but no printer or scanner.

Quote E-Value code of 001 D21 in the appropriate place.
