    Have to agree with Elky - just taken delivery of their machines - thrown one around the room a few times, thumped it etc and it seems pretty robust to me!

    If you fancy taking one to have a look, feel free to contact me and I'll get a sample sent out to you.
    Amen to that, and the PSU's come with a blanked voltage switch too (who needs 110v anyway).

    RM One. Lets face it, they were designed by RM for use in education!

    Timbo, when did Dell's prices go sky high? They still seem pretty resonable to me! OK you can get a PC fom dabs for £57 now, but do you really want a PC that wont last the next year?

    Cant find them on your website?

    We use a variety of PCs here, from several NEC models, so RM ones and more recently, by my choice, some Dells.
    All but the Dells are easyily broken.

    SCL Online - RV77 Black & Silver Micro ATX Desktop Case v2

    I think this is the only spec we have on the site, let me know if you would like any images of anything specific on the chassis.

    Note to Elky when you get an RMA Request for one beaten up system thats now dead I think you will find Witch has had her broom and heels at it so its mallicious damage rather than manufacture fault

    As for robustness, the old style HPs were my choice but not the new ones. I like home built PCs for the fact I can choose the case from a wide range and find something that looks hard and tough.
