    What's it's specification? At the end of the day, many of us might sneer or criticise retail outlet computers but if it does all you want to do and in an agreeable manner - doesn't matter what others think.

    Sight unseen, I will guess that the specification will look good in, an advert, to people who are not familair with PC hardware and components. It will promote as "features" things most of us would not consider so; it will use "superfast", "powerful" and other optimistic appelations to components which would not strike a knowledgeable PC user as entirely accurate.

    Other than that, some components will be very good, some will be average and they probably won't all match each other in terms of respective performance.

    yeah, lol. It seemed like a good deal at the time, and I hadnt looked at the price of componants for over a year. It was the last one, so I grabbed it on a spur of the moment. Im quite pleased with it, seems to be an alright system... i know what u mean about dixons though.

    Probably more than you paid. Without going onto websites and adding it up I'm not totally sure mate.

    Yeah I would say so. Mind you knowing Medion the case is probably fugly, that would be the first thing I'd ditch.

    medion are one of the dixons group's own brands that they pull out every now and again when they want to sell a pc for a short time at a loss to get people into the store.
