Default New Compaq - PC World - Not the same PC

Hi I bought the New Compaq at PC World but it had to be returned as the specs on the box were not the same as the machine?

SAID WAS
512 RAM 386 RAM
160GB 140GB
NVIDIA 128MB NVIDIA 128MB (NOT SAME)
WINDOWS XP CD COPY FROM HARDDISK

£399.99 NOT INC MONITOR

NOT REALLY WORTH IT

Well, the 384 RAM was because 128MB of your RAM was being shared with your integrated video adapter, and the 140GB hard drive was because the rest of the space is occupied by the recovery partition, and they don't yet give 256MB Integrated graphics, so it would have to have been 128MB.
