Purchasing new PC or Laptop

  bluto1 20:50 13 Jul 2008

Very soon, when the pennies are right I'll be looking for either a new PC or Laptop. My budget will be £500 - £600. Looking at that budget is it possible to have Vista Ultimate? I've already got access to a PC with Home Basic on board and I'm more depressed by it than impressed. In all honesty that's probably due to ignorance of the system, despite having read all I can about it.
What are your ideas? Is it a pipe dream?

Once built,the price should come out at £569.00 with free delivery.

Though if you like the games...upgrade the graphics card.

Great spec, I don't do games so the graphics card (integrated) seems OK. Price is good too. Thanks for that.
