The cheapest deal I could find on the dell site is:

Cost: £250 INC VAT + DEL

Equivalent(with dabs.com quicklink code):
Case:  39MVWS   £24.98
Celeron D 335:  3WKKWS  £54.30
Mainboard 3WKKWS  £42.05
256MB DDR 37JCWS  £13.86
52x IDE CD-ROM  36MXWS  £10.57
Floppy Disk:  2H30WS  £6.40
40Gb HD:  3SFYWS  £26.95
Scroll Mouse:  3H4ZWS  £2.56
Multimedia Keyboard:  3H4GWS   £4.05

Total cost:  £185.72 INC VAT  (plus delivery though; so add a tenner or so)

I can get those prices (and so can you) as a private individual.  If
you can't beat those prices as a company then if I were you I'd review
my supplier situation.  (OK so mine is a barebones machine but all I
ever do with XP Home is deinstall it and I think all anyone ever does
with Works (which is what the Dell machine comes with) is swear at it
then deinstall... :) )
