A system for sub 400 pounds please

  Bailey08787 13:56 27 Mar 2005


Could I get some suggestions for a system that's less than 400 pounds please. It's for my mum, so no need for it to be top of the range.

Looking for a package with a 17" TFT, 20-40gb hard drive, around 512mb memory, reasonably speedy processor (say P4 2ghz) - average graphics card/sound card - and thats about it.

Anyone recommend any bargains?

You will be lucky to get a sub £400 system with sound card, graphics card AND a 17"TFT. Novatech have this for £291 (inc. OS) and around £150 should get you a 17"TFT. click here

You beat me to the e-buyer link but, sadly, the even better version with a 2.8MHz Seperon and 80GB HDD at £270 including VAT disappeared about 10 days ago.

I've seen 15in TFTs at £99.99 including VAT, but from the somewhat still unknown Hanon brand.

Dell Dimension 3000 on special offer, complete and delivered,software installed, ready to work out the box for £279.00 www1.euro.dell.com

Only problem, slightly less specification to your wants:40gb harddrive,256mb memory,17"crt monitor. Still a bargain.

The Hanton £99.99 15in TFT is currently available from dabs.com; viewing wise basically a 15in is the same as a 17in CRT monitor.
