    Really struggling to decide between this and the Quad core D044019.

    This is about the same price when you allow for the 22" screen, but has only 250GB HD.

    Also some good deals seem to appear at Outlet.

    Too many options = I can't decide.

    I use the computer all day with multiple apps running and need to edit video, but not gaming. Any advice appreciated.

    Regards
    Preston

    Same here. Need a new work PC as my old dog is struggling to open more than one app at a time. I use Corel Draw, Photoshop and Illustrator a fair bit and often have multiple apps doing stuff. Nothing major needed i guess, but a comp that could do everything with ease would be good. No games are played which keeps the cost down I guess.

    I'd also like to consider a good poker playing monitor (22"+) so I can swap it for my 19" at home

    This is probably a shot in the dark, but does anyone know if one of the HDDs could be removed to put in a NAS device? Or will the machine come already configured with windows installed and not like it if you start taking things out? Thankyou.

    As long as it's not been configured as a RAID array you'll be fine. Even if it has, you'll probably only need to tweak a few BIOS options and reinstall Windows.

    Nice one, thanks a lot. Wonder if this offer is still on...

    Dell are phasing out the Vostro 400 systems in favour of the new Vostro 410 so this offer will have a limited life span.
