    That's a very nice specification. The graphics card is a little on the weak side for playing the latest games, but apart from that it's ace.

    Not only that but I'm told after-sales support is good. A friend had one go wonky and they collected is, fixed and got it back to hime in a week.

    Id be interested to see what motherboard [chipset] that computer has in it for that money. SATA HD - I actually read that as not being SATAII as well.

    Just my opinion.

    Doesn't mention in the spec, but the picture has the Windows Vista Home Premium logo, but that could mean I suppose that it is recommended to run Vista.

    It does come with WinVista, and I agree also for that price that is very impressive.
