    Hi there,

    Im getting a new desktop just or myself, its gonna be put in my room lol :)

    I reall wanted an Imac but the prices are wayyyyy over my budget! I found a reburbished one on studentcomputers.com. Its got a 250gb, which is good enough just for myself. here it is: http://www.studentcomputers.co.uk/Apple ... 71247.html

    Do you think it looks good? Is it worth it? Thanks for all the advice!

    For the price, yeah it's nice, but for a hundred pounds more you can get a current generation one with more RAM, more HDD space, current OS and a faster processor. If you're tight on cash, get the older one. If not, you can get a better one on Apple that is refurbished.

    Check often. Around Christmas they had a ton of great stuff, and everything was in stock, but the stuff gets bought up fast.
    Also don't pay extra for better shipping. From the first link I assume you live in the UK, but despite this, you should get your computer within a few days of ordering. I got an iPod in 36 hours (actually 24 with the time change) when they shipped it from Taiwan. It actually arrived in California local time before it was sent local time (ie sent 10AM Taiwan time, arrived in LA 8AM California time). Computers take maybe a day extra at the most.

    That computer looks alright to me and probably fits your needs, I'd recommend a laptop myself but that computer looks ok to me.

    Guys, can we not turn this into a Mac vs. PC topic? I'm sure Midnight is perfectly aware that there are PCs out there, and I think we all can get from his first post he wants a Mac. There's a sticky on this board for debating about Mac vs. PC.

    Thanks!
