Sounds too good to be true but what do I know?

Expect to see the price rise..and rise...and rise some more!

A 10 year warranty? hmmmm!

I would have said there are safer options.

doubt the offer and as said it will go up and up as for 10 yrs?

He has several auctions going and has sold previously at £310. That is An XP2500, 512Ram, 128 Video, 80GB, DVD Writer, Monitor AND Win XP & Office albeit OEM Versions? Does this make any sense at all????

The 10 year warranty would worry me, even some of the main monitor or hard-drive manufacturers will only offer a 3 year maximum on their products. 10 years time the machine will be obsolete.
