We're after some new desktops with the following (ish) specs
- At least an i3 (4th gen)
- At least 4gb of RAM
- At least a 320GB HDD
- Must be fairly small (Mini Tower)
- Must be Windows 7 pro
Quantity wise we're looking at around 90, does anyone know any decent suppliers?

I'd be happy to help you with this. If you drop me a PM or email with your details, I'll be happy to quote.
I'd quote you on @VeryPC

Whilst I can't offer you brand new machines with 4th Gen CPUs, I can offer you some refurbished HP 8300 Small Form Factor desktops for a fraction of the price.
I'll PM you with the detais and a link to our product page.

If you want new machines, built to spec, I'd recommend @VeryPC, Stone @Stone_Liz and Novatech - all British based, good warranties, excellent quality (I know the latter two from experience, lots of others on here can vouch for @VeryPC), and excellent value for money.
Honest question: why a 320GB HDD instead of a 120GB SSD? Price difference isn't much for custom builds and I cannot recommend SSDs enough. 120GB is fine for installation footprints if you save files centrally to a file server.

no reason at all, i just thought it was the minimum you'd get now a days. 120Gb SDD does sound better.

I recommend Millgate. Never used them myself as yet but they did give me a cocktail at BETT!

Would be interesting what the suppliers think 320GB Sata or 120GB SSD

I'd say SSD any day if you can afford the extra. The performance bump is worth the outlay IMO.
