This is the desktop you have been looking for


This was so easy to set up. I would recommend this product to anyone thinking of buying a desktop computer its fast and looks so slick too. What more do you need and at affordable price. The staff at John Lewis are so knowledgable and helpful.

Best Small Desktop Available


If you are looking for a really compact desktop PC to perform a range of home office type functions, as I was, then look no further. The smallest desktop I have seen, it takes up very little room and looks very good too. Add to that the fact that it's...

Dell Inspiron


Excellent product and much better than a laptop unless you wish to use a computer on the move. Very easy to set up with plenty of ports for various items. Comes with Windows 10 already installed which in my experience has been better than upgrading...
