Zoostorm Desktop PC - Desktops | Ebuyer.com is just from a quick look about online. Doe's it have to be brand new, or could it be refurbished? Toshiba Satellite Pro C50-A-166 Laptop is what I found on the same site for 15" laptops.

It has to be brand new? I can get you some superb prices on refurb kit that'll play better than that zoostorm

ZooStorm PCs typically have very noisy PSUs and don't look like they are built to last. I would avoid those personally.
For not that much more money you could get some Dell OptiPlex 790's from @ICTDirect_Dave...
We purchased some recently from Dave and can definitely recommend them.

Personally I used to use Stone machines with the cheapest sticker possible.
remember if you are budgeting always put in a bit of leeway so when they cut it you get perhaps a bit more than they would have given you

For the laptops check out the Fujitsu a512 range - very aggressively priced for i3 4gb ram . If you get the right Fujitsu reseller there is a possibility of getting a much better price than you will see on the web.
There are also some sub £35 3yr onsite warranty options .

To be honest i would get a refurbished Dell Optiplex 790 that @ICTDirect_Dave are selling compared to those celerons from ebuyer

The zoostorm entry level machines are mega budget , with a new pc you'll get what you pay for.
Some of the new Haswell celeron aren't that slow relative to early sandy bridge i3 2120. http://www.cpubenchmark.net/ is a good place to find CPU performance if you are comparing refurb CPU spec vs latest model CPU.
