Go to [url]www.quidco.com[/url]
you need to click through to the dell business site, not the home site.
click laptops in the left hand navigation bar
on left bar there's a link for Shop by E-value - click it
in the text box at bottom, enter UKBSDONL & N0315129 into the boxes.
click the arrow
voila.

Good price, but for an extra £20 add then 1440 x 900 display.

15" is too large for anything less.
#6
Sorry, cold I am affraid.That would be a good price a year ago, certainly not now.
#7
whatsThePoint
Where did you get the incorrect info about too large for anything less from?


Obviously not from your optician! :-D

Unless you have trouble seeing, 1440 x 900 will give you extra space to work on.

There is no point making things huge just for the point of it. Its a laptop its likely to be sitting in front of you.

Its a cheap upgrade to make it more efficient to work on.

With integrated graphics its hardly a gaming machine, when a lower native resolution could be useful.

Also most 13" laptops come with screens 1280 x 800, so it make sense for a bigger screen to have a better resolution.

Is this better than the acer posted a few dasy back?

I've ordered the acer but dont know how goot they are as a brand.

For you maybe. For me (and loads of other laptop manufacturers/customers) that's a load of rubbish. I've had this laptop (Vostro 1510) with 15.4" screen and 1280x800 resolution for almost a year now. I use it daily and it's perfectly fine. I work as a web designer, and have no problems with this resolution/screen running Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Flash, etc...

Yes, it's a cheap upgrade - but you're making out it's an essential purchase when it's sooooo not.

for me this is the better deal as it's not refurbished and in my experience Dell have much better customer service. not much in it though....slightly better spec with the Acer, I think
#11
Is it worth selecting the 90W power supply, there's no additional charge?

Does it mean that the battery will charge quicker with the 90W power supply?

thanks
#12
cold from me as well im afraid, over the last year nothing has changed in terms of processor or ram in this price range.

Dell had a simillar Vostro going for £269ish in July 2008 which i was considering to purchase - only to hold back thinking a better processor and 4GB will be the norm come christmas 2008.

well its March 2009 and Dell are still selling the same spec stuff, at a simillar or higher price - nothing exciting whatsoever!

especially considering that within the last 12 months netbooks and there sucessors have already come along

so at this mo im sticking with my reliable dell, pentium M, 512mb which works with XP just fine!

Comparisons with prices 6 months ago are not entirely valid as the pound has devalued by approximately 30 percent since then and given that most if not all the components of this pc will have been made abroad then it is not surprising that prices have not fallen in line with what we have been used to over the last few years

Got a vostro 1500 early last year and had nothing but problems.

What ridiculous logic. You're obviously blissfully unaware of the global economy and strength of the pound. It's like complaining about the price of petrol cos it used to be dirt cheap a couple of years ago. :roll:

Vote cold if you find a similar spec machine for the same price (good luck doing this, btw), but don't vote simply because it isn't as cheap as you'd like it to be. Yes, Dell did some good deals last year, but a lot has changed since then. Netbooks have nothing to do with this deal either (how many netbooks have 3GB ram and core2duo processor??)

This deal isn't for the 1500, it's for the 1510 which is completely different.
#17
I have a similar spec 17" vostro with 512mb graphics card, it's a great machine, plays games well too!
#18
Jan 2008 i got a dell vostro 1500 with 2gb ram, core 2 duo 1.4ghz, 120 gb hdd, vista basic, for about £320 i thought it was a bargain back then, its a sweet machine. This ought to be similar price if not less, i wont vote cold or hot. But with the new vat things are meant to be gettin cheaper especially when we are in recession.

I noticed that CPU and motherboard prices have jumped a lot in the last 3 months which as you say is not suprising as many of these things are wholesaled in dollars.
Electrical goods in general don't seem so affected but I've been out of the country for 2 months so can't say I'm on top of the situation.
#20
anyone now if this has VGA out to connect to TV?
#21
In the accessories section tick the box that says

"March promotion - 30% off Creative Live! Cam Notebook Ultra"

This reduces the price to £348.85...

Unfortunately its a Dell Much better to spend your hard earned cash on a better brand with if not equally a better spec............

Gordylad - have you nothing better to do than trolling every Dell thread with your negative comments about the company? It's funny, cos some in some of your earlier posts you are actually talking about how you're going to order a Dell machine :roll: If you did buy one, and had problems then feel free to explain what they were, but please don't use people's deals to vent your anger at Dell as a brand. Every manufacturer has customers who have had good and bad experiences - Dell are no different.

I couldn't recommend Dell highly enough. Have had this machine for over a year now and it's been quality. Their customer service is fantastic also.
#24
working with laptops in the repair sense, i have found dell and hp to be the better (in most cases)

obsolete model, obsolete processor and obsolete chipset.

I would have to be seriously, mentally ill to choose this Vostro over e.g. Inspiron 1545 @ £349 (to avoid being accused of anti-Dell campaign that I would obvioulsy back :) ) and having range of significantly better laptops for approx.£40 more.

Not sure whether it matters much if it is obselete if it is good value... but in this instance the Inspiron 1545 is the obselete model. Value for money is the criterion that needs to be used and both of these offers are reasonable - if disappointing in comparison to what was on offer a few months ago.

Don't be too concerned about mental instability - I find it a benefit in the present environment.

I think your choice of word isn’t the best as the CPU and chipset are fully functional so not obsolete in terms of functionality or even performance which is what counts surely!

Each to their own. I’d rather pay the extra £18 for this and have a battery life about 50% longer (6 v 4 cell) and an on-site warranty versus a collect and return warranty.
If that makes me mad then I wonder what that makes you? A fascist. :?

Following this path - Pentium M will do the job in most cases too. Although this is C2D, all new Pentium Dual Cores (3XXX & 4XXXX) will be faster that this one and will not require paying premium for the old label. Also, newer chipset cause less compatibility problems, work more efficiently and effectively.
I am just wondering how many of you is going to actually buy this laptop.Maybe you have got one...bought a while ago @£293 and cheer with happiness that your old laptop is gaining in value :) .That's not true - it's not !

Please, do not try to convince me that low-end business model from 2007 may still represent good value for money.This is quickly changing HI-Tech industry, not a furniture.

I’ll ignore the Pentium M jibe as they are not even vaguely comparable.
I personally have nothing against Pentium Dual Cores but to say that they are better than previous generation Core 2 Duos is just plain wrong in performance terms. Their 1MB cache does impact their performance over the C2D series which have 2MB of cache as minimum. It might only be just over 10% difference overall but in certain situations the difference is much more significant: 30 to 40%. Newer is not always better.
There is no premium for the Core 2 Duo in this case anyway!

7777777

Compatibility issues with what exactly?
Intel’s mobile chipsets offer incremental improvements with each generation but the improvements are usually minor evolutions and for the typical person buying this class of system the differences will very likely be unnoticeable. The integrated graphics will have improved I admit but they are still so far away from being of use for anything but the most basic gaming that for many people it’s an irrelevance.

I prefer to buy the latest as well but I was simply pointing out that for some people getting a significantly longer battery life and an on-site warranty is more useful than a bunch of extra features that have no bearing on how they actually use a PC.
This model was only released around May/June 2008 so your reference to 2007 is way off the mark. You seem uninformed but keen to ram your opinions down our throats!

Recalling Pentium M example I meant differentiation of needs.Some says that Intel Atom is well performing CPU, and that's can be truth too...for some of course.

New chipsets (with integrated graphic) tend to cause less problems ,starting with games .Although X3100 is significantly better the previous 950, and the difference between x3100 and 4500 is not that massive with regards to compatibility ,I can still give you plenty of examples that the difference betwen X3100 & 4500 is the difference between playing the game or not .Yes,you are absolutely right that integrated chipsets offer a disputable gaming experience and most laptops are not bought to be playing on but...even if you do not play regularly ,one day you may want to spend a little while with the game and you will be robbed of the opportunity.What is the point in buying older if you have got newer, available for the same , or even better money.


I hardly believe that any C2D can be 40% faster than PDC (taking into account absolutely any application - PDC from Merom onwards/ assuming the same clock).Even your example, provided for 'Inspiron 1545's thread purposes, comparing Celeron DC (512kb cache) and E6850 (4mb) has not reached that difference.

Yep, the 2007 was exaggerated (deliberately) - V1510 was launched 1st of May 2008, which obviously does not change the fact that the model is slightly outdated. And yes again, NBD warranty may represent high value for some but definitely not for me. I have Tecra - they just don't break :) . 3 years warranty + full refund if the problem occurs give me the peace of mind.Not guy with a bag and refurbished motherboard inside :)

It actually maxed out at over a 46% difference but I probably should have changed the range to 20 to 30% for this particular comparison. Although for general usage I think the two are fairly well matched as the faster clock speed of the PDC compensates for the smaller cache.

http://www.xbitlabs.com/images/cpu/celeron-e1200/table2.png
#32
As you can see from the table, the biggest difference between the two is how the C2D copes with gaming... Otherwise they match up quite well...
#33
Yes guys, just one more thing should be taken into consideration :

The table compares Celeron Dual Core with higher model of C2D ( older model though ) = 512kb v 4mb , NOT Pentium Dual Core with basic C2D = 1mb v 2mb as we discussed.

Ah, ok, I haven't been following the thread, I was just commenting on the table :)
#35
As PDC is much faster than Celeron DC. Examples below seems more appropriate for this comparison (the same core, PDC v C2D, 1mb v 2mb, no overclocking)

http://ixbtlabs.com/articles3/cpu/intel-lowend-2008-p2.html

Please see E4300 v E2160 (1.8Ghz)
E4400 v E2180 (2Ghz)
E4500 v E2200 (2.2Ghz)
#36
A 2GHz PDC will perform very similarly to a C2D 1.8GHz 2MB in the majority of cases especially when you consider what this type of laptop will be used for. That is why I called BS on 7777777 moaning about how this particular C2D is ‘obsolete technology':

http://www.xbitlabs.com/images/cpu/core2duo-e7300-pdc-e5200/overall.png

The 4MB v 512kb link was there as 7777777 couldn’t read the table correctly which shows that the largest difference was over 46%.

But some people prefer to hold on to their erroneous perceptions even when new data is presented which contradicts their delusions.

So, you clearly agree that 4500+PDC is a better choice than X3100+ older C2D
