You get what you pay for, but when you think about it, a reasonable spec. 1Gig computer base unit could probably be built for under a £150!
Don't expect to upgrade it though.
There have been some criticisms of PC Chip units, but I have never come across one, so it would be unfair to comment. It may be worth doing a search to see what the web throws up in respect of reliability.
Without a doubt, a budget unit, but for some, no doubt has it's place.
with new hdd, new cdrw, memory from crucial and an old floppy. Worked 2nd. time. 1st. time it had factory set to clear cmos once changed to pins 1-2 all ok. Formatted 40GB hdd in 5 mins and loaded win98 se in 30 mins. Seems a good unit - you obviously cannot upgrade it but for a basic machine very good.
the manual showing pin connections etc comes on cd in pdf with acrobat 5. If you have not got a working pc you would not know how to put it together - the markings on the board are very small and sparse.
