PC Purchase

Not sure if this is the place to ask but here goes. My pals PC is about 8 years old and low spec by todays standards. He wishes to buy a new desktop PC for about £500. He is happy with his current monitor. Given that it is Jan Sales time can anyone recommend who is doing a good deal on a PC for this price?

Not a gaming machine! Just general emailing, web use, Word Processing etc

Links below to two good offers from Ebuyer on Zoostorm PCs. The first has integrated graphice hence lower price. Second has a 1GB dedicated graphics card.

Thanks people. Some useful suggestions. The Zoostorm looks tremendous value but I'm a bit unsure of the quality. Fink I'll opt for the Acer X3990 i5, 4gb, 1tb HD at £429 John Lewis.

Thanks, he has a reasonable monitor & keyboard. He won't be playing any games either. It sounds fairly future proof.
