I think they were likely querying the Catalyst price that insight gave, which you'll only get over the phone/email with their education people.

I have, they need an OEM Vista Business Licence, a cheap VGA Card (the on-board is SHOCKING) before drivers the lag is lagriffic and its not that wonderful once drivered up tbh! and a cheap PCI-Express soundcard. So on top of the £96 catalist price, its about £18 for the soundcard, similar for a VGA Card and £65 for the Vista licence so for near enough £200 you have a great spec desktop PC.

If they are at that price in a few months time I see no reason why they won't be in the running for the new desktop purchases.

Add to that an extortionate delivery charge

There delivery charge can suck balls at times but push and it comes lower. I seem to have finally got a £5 charge on items like projector lamps instead of the more expensive ones.
