I am buying a desktop replacement for general word processing and have about £900 to spend.

Is this reasonably ok click here

Any views on the manufacturer or retailer.

I've had a look for previous posts but there is very little, which is probably a good thing.

I've looked a dell but every time I navigate their menus the prices seem to change for the worst.
I am aware that thier sale ended today and so I suppose the prices will rise.

did you have ant dell model in mind.

I would prefer a 15.4 screen 1gb ram and a big hard drive.

....and its nice to have a few bells and whistles if its in the budget.

There is so much choice out there.

I just wondered if there was any known major roblems with the company or manufacturers.

I know that dell have their share of complaints but they are one of the largest retailers in the world - so it is all proportionate.

My only fear with dell is their use of overseas call centres if things go wrong.

I've been there and don't want to go there again.

Mesh are not for me.

My personal experience was very bad, but I appreciate that yours may have been excellent.
