In the old days, the January sales used to start, well, in January. Over time, these deals were pulled in earlier and earlier – with the Boxing Day sale replacing January as the kick off point. Now it seems January starts on 19th December. KitGuru packs a sleeping back and Thermos, ready to camp out for bargains.
As the average price of the PC continues to slide, the actual drops are getting smaller. Because there is a fundamental value (and, therefore, cost) to every component required to make a system, the absolute lowest price you can pay for something has been levelling off. In the world of laptops, we saw this when we recently compared a Toshiba system from 2 years ago – to the spec/price combination available today.
But desktop PCs are still increasing their value offer.
This morning, we received an update from London-based PC maker, MESH Computers, with its new prices. The deals start with a full PC, including 8GB of memory, 1TB drive and Windows operating system for just £299. Hard to argue with that.
KitGuru says: Whether you’re looking to replace a system for your family or updating the kit in your office, complete systems with Windows OS from £299 seems worth a closer look. We asked, and they all comes with a 3 year warranty.
