    Misco are running a cashback offer on HP's with that spec and 5yr onsite warranty. I use Stone for my suites but bought 18 of these for Technology. Impressed with them and the Business Manager was impressed with the price!!

    maybe late to the party but Stone all the way here. I like the look of Dell stuff but really have a problem getting a hold of decent quotes. My Dell education guy just puts me onto a reseller I don't really like. Anyway chat to stone.

    Stone's and Viglen can do really good offers if you work them off each other

    Have a word with Chris at @CPLTD - got us a great deal on some i5 PCs, the i3 pricing will be even better if that's what you're definitely going for.

    If you can get hold of them - haven't had a reply to any of our last 5 quote requests...

    one word of caution is to check what i3 each vendor offers. I found stone offer the most upto date version and Viglen were pushing older ones to make the quotes look good but sure there are many happy viglen customers out there.

    another vote for stone here, have you thought about using laptops? we use laptops and just take out the battery, had some Dell vostros in for about 3 years. still good for another few years.

    If you're a Google Apps school then Chromebox might be an option. Depends on what the requirements are for the classes using the ICT suite though.

    Hi. We are looking to buy around 70 replacement pcs. Spec: Core I3 with 4Gb RAM. 500G Hard Drive. No monitor. No O/S. What sort of price would you expect to pay?

    Are these going to be running Linux then, because if you're going to be running Microsoft Windows through a volume license agreement you will need to buy them with an OEM version of Windows. The only other option is if you have a full retail version of Windows, all Microsoft Volume Licenses are classed as upgrades.

    Another option to consider are the X5A units from Xi3 - http://www.xi3.com/x5a-modular-computer.php
