To be honest it's not that good a spec now, a Celeron 3.2GHz is getting
long in the tooth (Aria are selling them off at about £20 a piece, a
Pentium Dual Core would be a better option at about £20 more) and it's
old technology, you should really aim for a dual core CPU nowadays and
1GB memory as a minimum. A decent supplier should be able to do this at
a good price.
I've heard that Novatech sell PCs without operating systems bundled.
I've never personally bought anything from them but I do know that they
have been around a fair few years (at least probably about 10 years).
Other than that, I hate to say it but there's always Dell.
