Thanks again for the replies. I do miss the old PC style box as my husband was able to replace things (add more memory). We still have the monitor from our old one too.  I'll get him to open up this one and have a look. We have managed to clear up quite a bit of room so far. We had a huge number of large duplicate photos (some even 5 times!).

If you are looking at getting a new system, id suggest the following. I would not recommend an AIO if anyone is considering using it for any gaming.


If you arent locked into getting an AIO unit contact a shop like computer lounge with your requirements. They are very helpful and will point you in the right direction. 


Normally id suggest playtech but since they upgraded their website navigating a pre-built system by them is near impossible. 


Based on your info here is something i looked at for a new system. Includes a new Monitor. Doesn't include Keyboard and Mouse and also you didnt say if you need to use Wifi or cabled ethernet so that could be another consideration.

I havent included the prices but you can see that on the website.


Im sure there may be some other options that people will suggest but for the budget this seems to fit the bill reasonably well.
