I bought the media centre model in a very stylish gloss black and aluminium with sliding front panel to conceal front connections.
it has 6 usb 2 front 4 rear memory card reader dvd-rw svhs freeview tv tuner tv recording function remote control and a host of audio connections. 200gb hdd 3ghz pentium 4 ht processor 1gb ram. it came with windows media centre pre installed with inbuilt factory restore software. it also has some other bundled software pre installed dvd cd burning etc mostly trial versions.
no floppy disc drive included but i think these are a bit out dated anyway. comes with wireless keyboard and mouse and infa red remote and sensor and audio software for the 5.1 dolby surround sound

I have had the pc for about 8 months with no problems at all other than a few teething issues that were sorted over the phone on the free iqon helpline.
the instructions and spec guide are not that helpfull but the helpline is if you have any queries.
the pc is solid built and good quality and philips have a partnership with iqon so you get the philips quality components.
it comes with standard 12mth guarantee.
iqon is based ireland and mainly sell through mail order catalogues and in some large tesco's the price i paid was £1000 and given the little extra that usualy gets added to catalogue prices i think it was a resonable price. there are cheaper lower spec pc's available from iqon also.

all in all this is a good pc witha good spec and build quality
standard warranty (12mth) and free helpline.
