PC Build for university

DanStewart

Hi all,

My girlfriend is leaving home for university soon and so she has asked for a computer that she can use that will last her through her ~4 year course. Can anyone recommend a build that I could use please? She has no need for gaming and the budget is around £400-£500 preferably including Windows. She would also prefer the tower to be relatively small as most university rooms are small. Her course would not require any specialist software either.

Thanks in advance :)
