Hi,

The spec's fine, the processor is a tad on the light side, but at this price point waddaya expect. It'll run everything you want at the moment (unless your a serious gamer!).

You always need to look at what it doesn't come with, they don't advertise that!

(i.e. make sure the DVD driver is a writer!)

thanks for your advice.

Do you think the processor will be ok or is it worth paying extra for a better one? I don't play games, but I'd like it to be quick doing what it needs to do (email/internet/dvd's) etc. I can go up in price if needed, but would rather stick below £350 if possible

TIA
