Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) review
Afternoon all. I have received a quote for a purpose built computer. The details are below. As I know nothing about building computers does the spec look ok for the price. I sent my requirements to this company and it follows the end of their spec. Accept my apologies for the format of this post if it has not been done the best way. Thanks
For a reasonable general purpose machine i would suggest something along these lines:

I have looked on your web-site to build a PC and found it confusing (not your website, my knowledge of building computers).
Basically I want a computer that my kids would use and it would be used for photo editing and internet access. I would like dual core processors (poss quad dependent on the price) 3-4gb of RAM, firewire, card reader, wireless internet connection. I would also like two internal hard drives, one which is to be the C drive & the other I wish to use as a backup drive.
Would you please be kind enough to suggest something for me between £400-£500.
Your help is gratefully appreciated.

Thanks for the link, I assume I change the specs here to what I have been quoted for?
