Getting conflicting comments about this PC World offer...anyone with any knowledge of it pse?

We are not ignoring you i expect no one is around who has that system or can comment on it at this time.I did have a look at the PC World web site to see if i could put forward an opinion but it is not advertised as such.

Did find an old PC World web page which showed the model and though it looked impressive i thought a tad expensive for the components inside the case.If the link works you may see what was on offer.

For that sort of money you could do better and we may be able to guide you in a direction.

Not at all anti PC World.

Aldi do a PC deal every six months or so (next one is due about April time). Their MEDION systems are great, all the latest bits plus a FREE 3 year on site warranty !

I can not recommend PC World as from personal experience I have had several problems with both equipment and staff.

Aldi currently have a deal on for a

Sorry DonnyB hope you dont mind me asking SurfMonkey if i can hold him to that.(hush hush like ) ;0)

I know you have closed this thread,(dont know about other thread)but if you need any links or suggestions for systems etc just let all know. It's a good time to go for a bargain/good spec/prices for the next month or so.Dont forget the PC Advisor top ten chart.
