Thanks to all who replied to my request above. I'm sorry for the delay 
in replying but I've been in hospital for the past month, just out on 
christmas leave.

I finally ordered a Precision 7510 Workstation, as recommended by a 
couple of people. It arrived with Ubuntu installed ( god I don't like 
Unity ) Over my christmas break I'll have a go at installing CentOS 7 
and let ye know how I get on.

Again thanks to everyone who took the time to reply, and have a Happy 
Christmas and a Merry New Year.
