Hi,

Some models do ship with media, but at extra cost, some come with a hidden partition similar to Andy's Packard Bell machine.

I think this hidden partition is coming in from directives from Microsoft to help combat piracy, its just very annoying!

Not to add much to what's been said on Dell computers here, but they do seem
remarkably cheap, the laptops as well. A friend ordered two of these plus a
desktop for his new union branch office and I was amazed that he paid little
more than £400 for the desktop with 17 inch monitor. He did it by phone, and
that's an 0870 number which gets you through to India where Dell's call centre
is. Obviously you'll save yourself a bit by doing the deal on the net.


Only question I have, and I might go and take a look, but are these machines
supplied with a copy of XP on a CD? An important consideration in view of
discussions here recently.
