Computer Supermarket has launched a "price-busting" PC system for just £199 - including VAT.

The deal is described as purpose-built for families requiring an additional computer for homework or grandparents wanting to keep in touch with family and friends.

The package includes an easy-to-read full colour 17-inch (CRT) monitor, a 40GB hard drive and 512MB DDR memory, housed in a "designer" case.

"People associate us with great value systems for gaming and office use but we're actually about providing the best systems for the job at the most competitive prices", explains Computer Supermarket's Ian Bird.

"Not everyone wants a 200GB hard drive to hold a vast library of iTunes or needs huge amounts of memory for games playing."

"Some of our customers tell us they just want a no-frills, reliable system that does the job without breaking the bank­ and this is it."
