    Dont forget they will charge you £51+VAT carriage per PC ordered.

    Still seems a good deal though

    Was just reading about the new Dell Vostro range that they are hoping will entice SME's back to them from the likes of the small guys.

    Not a bad little lost leader! But I always prefer to brew my own.

    1.6 Ghz Intel Dual Core
    This looks like the Pentium Dual Core and not the Core2Duo. Still not a bad price and the Core2Duo processors are not badly priced as well.

    I'm sure with a large quantity the 3 years warranty could be added without any cost and probably upped the RAM as well as well as the one of delivery so one shouldn't worry about the delivery cost that much.

    For god's sake PLEASE order the restore CDs from them.

    If you want to play with linux or installing various other operating systems on it then you are quite likely to kill the restore partition.

    I recommended linux to a friend who got me to install it and it killed off his dell restore partition. I got blamed as expected. But i then ordered restore CDs for him to try and shut him up.

    He agreed to the linux damnnit!

    Can't you just re-install XP & download drivers from website?

    Yeah and if you have to phone to report a fault I'm sure the first thing the nice indian person will say is please restore the dell windows from your restore disc !

    From my experience the call ends up in Ireland as opposed to India and never really had any problems.

    I suppose the Dell restore and utilities are a good thing rather than bad as it helps them and you also to solve the problems quicker rather than going through various things and trying out the suggestions etc.

    The first thing they ask for is your service tag or something like that.
