    Windows 7

    I thought all quad-cores were 64bit? unless its really old? the downside to that is that 32bit versions of windows cant access 4GB of ram think the max is about 3GB.

    Windows 7

    As far as i know the version that we get will not allow you to upgrade, and has to be installed as a fresh install. I dont know what happens if you buy a comp with vista now though, there was talk of offering upgrades to win7. Maybe oem versions allow upgrade installs? Your also going to need a...

    MP3 player

    With regards to the charging from the head unit, Some do and some dont is the conclusion ive come to. The other half has a headunit that accepts mp3 players, which doesnt charge her 4th gen ipod nano, but it will charge my 1st gen nano. I have no idea why and its a little strange. The mp3...

    Please recommend a road bike?

    A friend of mine has a Trex 1.2, its a nice piece of kit imo, think it retails for just under £600 though, but im sure an 08 model could be found within your budget.
