my elderly system has finally curled up it's toes so I'll have to replace it. What do forum members think of this click here for use surfing/e-mail, photo processing and office aps please? No games!

So so - it has integrated graphics which will share your system RAM which is not wonderful as with only 256MB you can't afford to give any up so you would do well to get some extra RAM - only 2 RAM sockets so another single 512MB chip shpuld do. Word perfect is ok but most use Microsoft Office (which you may already have) Also if you are thinking about doing any camcorder work another hard drive would be very useful

What about the acer aspire on that site for £270.Its well reviewed by people who have bought it.

why not build your own - plenty of expertise available on this forum to help you

Good suggestion wobblymike. Personally I would never dream of buying a pre built system.

Problem is that it would likely cost more.
