What do you reckon to a Dell Dimension 5150 with intel 3.2 cpu, 17" tft 2.1 speaker system for £594. It's a deal I can get through my employer, it's either that or dimension 5150c media desktop with intel 2.8 cpu for £628. Any thoughts on which?
I have used -and still do- both makes,one at home and the other at work and neither have given any problems.I think it is down to the 'little things' like Colour? Flash card reader? How many ports? any spare space for HDD or DVD R/W etc. Good Luck Brian.
Thanks 2 MantraMan, I configured an amazing deal and finally bit the bullet and got a Dell system of the following spec:
Dimension 5150 (E-Value: 1-D11516c) 3.0Ghz P4 630 with HT 2MB Cache 1024MB 400Mhz DDR2 RAM 19" Dell 1905 FP w/ DVI 160GB SATA HDD 8MB Cache ATI X600 PCI-E Graphics Soundblaster Live 24-bit Sound 16x DVD-R & 16x DVD-ROM Windows XP Home 1 Year Collect & Return Warranty
£523 EX VAT including delivery !!! (£619 inc VAT for home users)
I was waiting for the right price/performance Dell deal to come along, and I don't think you can get better than this.
Sure enough, this system is not as upgradeable as the Dell 9150 series, but jesus, for the price you cannot complain and I would not need to upgrade, with the price of computers now whats the point? I'll just get a new one next year ;)
yeah, jbp, the way i look at it there's no point in the latest, expensive technology right at the moment (such as dual-core, dual-graphics etc etc) when it is not currently fully utilized and computer prices keep dropping so often anyway.
I say my box will last me for about a year, and at that point I'll get a dual-core, dual-graphics, Vista-proof machine for about the same price as what I paid today for the budget P4 system! Keeping with the times in technology costs too much ;)
