PC Gemilang isn?t what its all hyped out to be.

Here is an attachment for a dell site for their dimension 2400. Going for USD 399(RM1516).

It has an Intel Celerom 2.4Ghz (400MHz FSB), 17 inch monitor , 40GB ATA/100 Hard drive, 128MB Shared DDR SDRAM at 333MHz (Performs at 266MHz for 400FSB systems). It comes with a 48x CD burner with Sonic RecordNow. It comes typical with a one year warranty from dell (which is better than what Pikom could offer) and also free delivery.

I think because of the big brand, and it?s reputation for good after sales service, it makes the purchase of PC Gemilang questionable. It also solves the problem of using the Win XP with Malay and the questionable sum offered by Microsoft for an upgrade to the English version. ?17 inch monitor? also another one. I guess it all depends on whether people are penny-wise or pound-foolish in terms of the whole package.
