Need a new base unit <£600

  bunnyrabbit 13:28 04 Feb 09

After much prevaricating, I ordered an HP Pavilion Slimline from DABs but the model I liked has been discontinued. So I have a screen but no box? Any advice gratefully received. Looking for:
Intel CPU
>500GB hard Drive
Wireless Network
TV tuner would be nice
Preferably less than £600

Tomorrow try Medion at Aldi

Hi kdt,
Thanks for this but I think this is an AMD chip though.... and I do worry about warranty etc when buying somewhere like Aldi. (am I being ridiculous just wanting an Intel?)

No problem buying from Aldi - better than some well known computer specialists! Nothing wrong with AMD - been using them happily for ages.

  bunnyrabbit 15:32 04 Feb 09

Yep, you're all right! Thanks for your help.

i agree with oldbeefer2 about aldi as i think they have a 3 year warranty as standard where most others only usually carry a 1 year :o)

I would avoid slimline cases as it makes upgrading components difficult.

Medions normally high spec reasonable price good workhorses as some of my relatives have got laptops & 3 years warranty. Better than buying from local computer shops...check it out as sometimes your local Aldi might not have enough stocks to go round.
