    Hi all,

    I'm on the cheap PC, but one that will last a couple of years.
    Ideally
    Core i3 or higher,
    4gb or higher
    ideally an SSD but I will consider HHD
    Win 7 or higher

    Also a monitor and keyboard mouse would be a bonus

    Location: Harrow

    It won;t be used for gaming, so any footprint will do.
    Thanks

    I have a Dell Optiplex 3010 DT with a I5 2300, 8GB ram, 120GB SSD with windows 10 on it. I can install Windows 7 if you'd prefer?

    Would you want peripherals aswell? I have a 22" 1680 x 1050 Dell monitor and a cheap keyboard and mouse. For all of them together £200? PC on it's own £150?

    Say about the 200 mark and since you are in Harrow I can drop or you could collect. I might have a cheapo keyboard and mouse combo kicking around that I can throw in.

    I bought the unit a little while back with a broken screen, however after purchase I found that the replacement screens were damn expensive (uses a screen that works in imacs...) and UK stock was uber rare. I ended up having to get one shipped in from aliexpress and got hit with customs charges too.... :(

    I spoke to the wife who was using it last, so I would need her to back up her stuff off in and then reformat it for you.

    Would you like some pics of it?

    All, thank you for the offers, unfortunately my friend has decided he no longer wants a desktop for the time being. I'll archive the thread as soon as I get to a computer
