Oops should be here - Chillblast Fusion Orb specs

Just rejoined PC Advisor Forums after a few years out and planning to buy a new PC. Not sure if this is the correct forum but let's try. Been buying PC Advisor for a while now after a year out and was liking the review on the Chillblast Fusion Orb in the last issue. I have looked at ordering only to find many of the items included in the review are not included in the same machine when ordering from the website. Is this usual for a manufacturer to send a higher machine for review then hope any buyers don't actually notice? I think it's a cheek having the 'PC Advisor recommended' in their advert when selling a different machine. Would be interested in feedback. PS I think I will now buy any other machine except this one due to this misleading advertising.

I think this has happened before. I'm sure the FE can explain better but they can only review the machine given at the time. It then takes time to publish the Mag and then the manufacturer might change the specs a bit. At least you did notice.

It's only the card reader for £20 but if I hadn't noticed I'd be well disappointed as it's something I use a lot of in photography. Hey ho

USB card readers are cheap as chips and easily transferrable to any PC. I don't like the built in readers as technology advances so fast you might find the built-in one getting out of date. I did with the SDHC inbuilt reader I had on an older machine.
