Was thinking of getting this kit. Are the specs any good? Has anyone used them before? Seems a good buy at £99.99.

Cost you extra if you want to put XP on it.

Is Ubuntu any good?

  birdface 15:26 19 Oct 2010

Sorry never tried Ubunto so cannot comment on it.

Anyone with any views regarding the kit??

Are the specs any good?

What do you want to do with it?

Its a very basic kit, with 80G drive, Celeron CPU, 1G RAM

Be wary. I reckon it will work,just, but unless you have a lot of hair you want to lose forget Ubuntu. As Fruitbat says its specs re RAM and hard drive are minimal. It would struggle to play Windows 7 as an OS. If it is for everyday use there are better value ones if you pay a bit more like this

If you just want to build one for fun that's fine but you will probably tire of it quite soon and wish you had spent a bit more

I wouldn't contemplate video editing with it.

Off e-bay?
