I am wanting to buy a good laptop which will last me 4 years which is how long my uni course will be. I have a budget of about £1500. I would like a laptop with the new core duo cpu and also good graphics. I was looking at the dell XPS M1710 extreme laptop which you can get with 4 year warrantry and 2gb ram at £1,974. Am i right in thinking if i bought this through quidco I would get 20% off or is it 6% off? If it is 20% off i could probably afford this laptop.
Also can anyone reccomend a good laptop for this price.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I believe if you were to go through quidco for that laptop, you would receive 21% cashback in total on the pre-vat price. I think this would be 21% of £1,679.79, which would be roughly £353 cashback. (I think my calculations are right there...someone correct me if not!)

Assuming the cashback gets tracked and paid, this means you are paying about £1621...
Newmezza if you go via the Quidco route please make sure you clear your cookies and cache before you click on the quidco link...

This is the only way I have found to make sure transactions get tracked!

On something of this value I wouldn't take any chances.


The XPS M1710 is a very big laptop, I had the old XPS Gen 2 and had to replace it with a 6000. Please make sure you do not want to lug this lappie around too much....but it's a real cracker!!
21% cashback seems a very good deal to me and thanks for the advice shahie. I decided against an alienware laptop because they were 6kg and big but this dell one is 4kg. Is 4kg still a lot for a laptop twinkle?. Is there a laptop tht is gd spec and quite mobile out there. Also is there any laptop sites where u cn get gd quidco money back.
Thanks for all the help.

Welcome to HotUKDeals by the way newmezza :)

Bear in mind the other factors mentioned above, such as the weight and size. I know these newer models have longer battery life and are lighter than my 17" P4 though.
I guess it depends on what you want to do with it...if it's mainly for static use then the price with a 21% discount is great...better than the outlet, where I got my Latitude X1 with a £400 saving but currently not much saving on the XPS's.
I'm female and hate lugging stuff you need the 17 inch screen?...otherwise I'd consider a top spec could even get one with a free upgraded warranty (3 yrs) if you use the outlet.

PS Raymans deal is good.
I dont need a 17" tft screen but i do want it to be good spec. This dell laptop seems perfect apart from it may be too bulky. I have seen an asus lamborghini laptop which is a similar spec and is stylish and weighs only 2.5kh but i cannot find it cheap. Is there anywhere where you can buy the lamborghini laptop and use quidco or a promotional code or something. I am wanting it in the colour black aswell if that is possible.
There were some Dell XPS M1710's on the outlet this week with 512meg graphics for around £1200-1400 delivered.
