This PC was built for everyday use, surfing the internet, word processing and replying to emails. The aims were...
- to build a small pc
- to still be a decent speed after 4 years.
- Cost below £350
The cable management was extremely fidgety because there was barely any space around the back of the case but I did the best job I could. I went for Intel over AMD because that's always been my preference. The HDD and DVD drive were both pre-owned.
Overall the build was quite easy and so far I have no complaints about any of the components.
