    That's an excellent price for the USFF. I know it's cheapest to call them (we use Dell alot), but the best I can get it to on the web, with the spec you list is £699 (ex vat). I can't see the schools team knocking off that much?

    That's what I thought. But thats the price I got quoted for just one unit. I'll dig out the quote I was given for the D820 laptops now they are cheap 8O

    Re: This Years New PC

    Actually -Ive just this second got a quote back from the school team for a similarly specced 745 desktop -£314 (minus floppy/optical drives). Which is *mucho* less than the site quotes. So I reckon you're spot on Sysman.

    It would be nice if Dell's Public Sector Site provided accurate quotes!

    Re: This Years New PC

    We went with HP DC7700 for £325 +£24 for an extra gig of RAM. Misco gave us this great deal.

    For TFT we went with HP LP1965 at £122.50 (+ £40 cash back) we got them from insight.

    Thanks for everyone help & advice, & yes we would recommend this PC & screen especially at these prices.

    Next job... what is the best price i can get for a HP Laptop (RH686EA#ABU)

    Ain't that one got £50 cashback on it? and if you have argued it at the same time as the desktops you would have got a better deal on it, I did when I wanted one.

    Just had a 5700 delivered (for some more heavy duty number crunching than classroom use) and I'm not sure I like the cases as much.

    If you look through the slats on the front you can see right in the PC on the 5700, on the 2300 you can't it's much more solid.

The HP business desktop DC7800's have been superseeded by the DC7900's now which are actually less than you can find the dc7800's for now. The 3 year warranties are cheap (if not inclusive!) too..
