I mentioned this computer in my thread 'More Hell With Dell' - I think that is probably where you got the info from, wasn't it? ;-)

Anyway, yes it certainly seems amazing for the price, I have had very bad (and still continuing) experiences with Dell as you probably know, but then again they have thousands of satisfied customers.

I got the information about the machine from click here (PC Pro Magazine's website - am I allowed to say that here? Sorry if i'm not...) you can read the review by clicking on the 'A-List' button on the front page then clicking the computer (The review is also in the July issue of PC Pro). To read what people have said about this computer go to the bottom of the review and click 'view comments'. There is quite a lot of useful info there.

Hope this helps!

Yep great review in Sept 03 edition. And I want to buy it as everyone who I have spoken to in person with a Dell has had great support and feedback.

Now try and find the same PC on the dell website. No eCode in PC Advisor review and the PC does not exist on their website :-) ANYWHERE..

Any clues where you can find this PC from Dell - it was a recent review after all.....

Just ordered this today, double memory to 1024mb also free 4th year warranty (via cashback). Will let you know how the order goes, but has been promised within a week...

I ordered this pc today, on the dell website there is a offer for a harddrive upgrade. In this case 120gb to 200gb on ANY 8300 Dimension machine. Contacted Dell as it appeared to be missing from my order. Seems to be a case of sharking. Any views? Where does this offer legally stand?
