    Refurbished RM One for £170

    I found this online - RM refurbished One for £170:

    Intel Core 2 Base unit and 17 Inch TFT Desktop Computer - Refurbished

    Is this a good deal? A charity I do voluntary work for are looking to purchase half a dozen.

    Seconded - I can recommend seller top_topdeals:

    eBay My World - top_topdeals

    He had around 500 machines available about 6 months ago, I don't know how many he has now.

    They're not Core 2 Duo versions though are they?

    What do you need the PCs for ?
    I have some kit you can have. Nothing that special - some old Acers and Viglens but they will take XP.

    Bought 2 from stuffusell on ebay recently, £50 and £60 respectively. Not core 2 nor are they compatible, though they're compatible with the next best thing (even if inferior), Pentium D CPUS. Then again, if you wanted core 2, you could just buy a cheap LGA775 mobo and Pentium DC processor and stick linux on to avoid OEM licencing issues.

    I'm waiting for the current ebay ones to end unsold so the offer price comes down a bit more - £50 I'd say is reasonable for the current ebay specced ones (Celeron D, 512MB, 40GB).
