That sounds interesting.  Thanks.  I've bought two desktops from 
pcspecialist and have been delighted.  My only gripe is that they 
absolutely refuse to talk Linux as part of company policy so you are on 
your own if there are OS problems or incompatibilities.  When I spoke on 
the phone a few years ago, they told me off the record that every batch 
of laptops that comes in has a variation in the electronics in some 
small way that 'might' affect Linux drivers.  I imagine things have 
stabilised since then but it does make me slightly wary.  Am I being 
over cautious?

The size would be ideal - it isn't much bigger than my Sammy, but the 
spec is even better than my current desktop.

Regards,        Barry.
