    you can get a dell 170l Optiplex with 3 years onsite / nextday for that money. I got 15 with 17" monitor for £309 each. PM me if you have any questions!

    Cheers

    Got some of these in the past. Looking for something a little smaller, hence SFF cases.

    £389 for a Dell GX520 SFF inc monitor. For bulk buy, you can negotiate a better discount.

    Re: Calling all penny pinchers!!

    We recently purchased........... for £300-00

    P4 3ghz
    512 ram
    40gb hdd
    FDD
    DVD drive
    On Board VGA, Sound etc.
    Keyboard + Mouse
    Case with front audio + USB


    XP Pro cost us a extra £32 from Ramysys

    Looking at the 2 specs maybe you could tone ours down to somwwhere near yours to save the £32, these also came with a 3 yr onsite warranty, but would have to check if this offer was still on.

    How many do you need?

    tosca925: did those machines come with an OS already installed? I suspect your £32 XP pro may have been an upgrade license - MS don;t supply volume licenses for new desktop machines. Just to warn - been there!
