Does that 469 pounds Dell include a monitor?

A 2600 is noticeably stronger than a 2120, but your budget may dictate what you can afford.

I'd go with a Dell of some type, but you need to pray.

Pray that you never need to rely on support from Dell--or from HP or any other manufacturer, for that matter.

If you haven't included it, I would pay the extra 5GBP and get the installation disks in case you need to reinstall windows later. Also, if you have the option, do not install Macafee, it will cause constant problems with your computer. If it is already installed, download the macafee removal tool from Cnet and replace it with free MSE.

I'll probably get Kaspersky Pure

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I will reinstall any computer I get with Win7 Ultimate, as I have a spare copy so I am not worried about that but as my netbook needs network drivers to work, do you think the computer I will get needs drivers too?

Your Windows disk should include all necessary drivers. If not, you should download the newest available drivers directly from Dell or whatever brand you purchase.

It's still a good idea to get the installation disks as Essenbe mentioned.

I think if you install your own Windows Ultimate, you may have a hard time getting any support from Dell, but that's your business. It might even affect your warranty? I doubt Dell would take back a PC if you have installed a different OS.

If you have the installation disks mentioned by Essenbe, you could at least restore it to factory condition if you need to make a warranty claim.

Hmm, I will buy restore disks, do computers come with disks with drivers stored on, I could just use them to install the drivers?

Does it really restore Warranty, does the same apply to Jailbreaking and stuff?
