Great Deal. This is a credible company, offshot of the huge US Home Depot/Office depot retailers

These are £550 refurb on fleabay.

This is a seriously hot deal. I don't even need one but somehow have 1 in my basket.

Dell website these ship with i5-480m processor. I'm trying to find fault in this deal to save myself £320, but I'm struggling

Please convince me. I don't need one at all, but it certainly is cheap in my book, and I like a bargain

This may be a mistake as its listed under printers and if you have a look at the manufacturers PN listed 210-34529 you get a printer which sells for around £300.

If it is for the laptop then its a great deal

the manufacturer part number they have listed refers to a printer, still have a one in my basket though

Does seem as a mistake, 210-34529 is a Dell 2355dn Multifunction Laser Printer! Worth a punt!

Well if you don't need one it certainly isn't a bargain!

Compared to the homebase deal recently and Tesco deals - these are continually coming down in price - give it a couple of months and they'll be circa £200. Worth waiting IMHO.

Looks similar to this one;

http://www.dell.com/uk/business/p/vostro-3700/pd?oc=n0337039&model_id=vostro-3700

which is £610 inc vat and delivery.

Hot from me

Look at it this way...more likely you would get the part number wrong rather than the full product description and photo.
#28
Not worth the risk/hassle imo.

Definitely a misprice, part number is for a multi function printer (and is in that category too).
Chances of getting this machine at this price are... slim to say the last. Too good to be true for an i5.
If anyone does, this was your lucky day, or else... enjoy your multifunction printer :-)

Well that certainly has not convinced me at all. My needs for this laptop has nothing to do with my perception of it as a bargain.

However, I have refrained from purchasing it, as I am contemplating a self build HTPC which is looking like a mega bucks project.

However, it's one of the hottest deals i've seen for a laptop for a long time here, IF it is actually honoured as it does seem to be a mis-price.

Good luck to all that are giving it a punt.
#36
Amazing price, however i'm 100% certain it's been mislabelled.
If they sold that laptop at that price they'd be losing money.
#37
Invoice comes through after ordering as a laptop not a printer. Hoping they honor the deal now.
#38
I agree - it's likely you will get a Dell 2355dn Multifunction Printer if you place this order! Beware!
#39
That product nember on the printer show up as a laptop for me...
I have a HP DV-6 1210sa with Radeon 4530 512mb graphics...apart from the bigger screen is this such a noticable upgrade? More importantly is it as reliable as HP as this thing has never missed a heartbeat.
