A friend of a friend emailed me and asked what I thought of this spec. I don't keep up with desktop hardware at all so I've no idea about any of this. Mind if I out-source this question to you fine people?
There are some obvious oddities - no SSD and only a 1TB disk.

Cheers chaps (and the occasional chapesses)!
