Raz:
What do people think of the Dell Inspiron 1525?

Obviously you can adapt the specs but the one on offer at £329 is:


Intel Celeron Processor 540 (1.86GHZ, 533 MHZ FSB, 1MB L2 CACHE)
Genuine Windows Vista Home Basic
1024MB RAM with 80GB Hard Drive
DVD/RW AND 8-IN-1 MEDIA CARD READER
Integrated Wireless Card

Thoughts?

Raz:
Or just seen this Inspiron 1525 on the Dell website for £349:

Base
Intel® Pentium Dual Core Processor T2370 (1.73Ghz, 533 MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 cache)

Microsoft Operating System
Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium - English

Video Card
Integrated Intel® Graphic Media Accelerator X3100

Memory
1024MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x512]

Hard Drive
120GB (5400rpm) SATA Hard Drive

Optical Devices
8x DVD+/-RW Optical drive, including SW


Better value than the first Dell I put up?

Why?

The user as already said its not for gaming or anything like that - just for downloading some tunes and browsing the web.  A machine with a Celeron or Sempron processor would suffice.  Neither of these chips suffer from reliability problems.
