    Just to help all you guys looking for a new PC, PCPro have reviewed several I7 PCs this month, all around the £1K mark.

    The winner was a Chillblast Fusion Spitfire at £1,149. It was a 2.66 GHz processor overclocked to 3.4 Ghz

    Hi dogastus

    I've looked on the magazine stands and can't see it. What month or issue is that please?

    The latest, probably with an April cover date - although it may be those of us with subsriptions are getting it a few days before other people.

    Hi

    It's the latest Intel range of processors. Very new and requires a different chipset (new motherboard, DDR3 RAM etc) to run it.

    Do a search on 'i7' for more details.
