Good price, personally I think I'm going for a different deal as you only get 1GB ram here but it's very good for the price.

:thumbsup:
yep, decent spec + quality.Warm.Heat added

OK, a bit OT, but can anyone tell me the cheapest Dell laptop you can get that's red ! I've a mate who only wants a red one after seeing the old Acer Ferrari. He only wants it for wp and email so it only need to be a basic model. . .

That would be an Inspiron 1525 - N0852515 with Linux for £328 http://configure.euro.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?b=&c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&oc=N0852515&s=dhs&sbc=rf_spider&m_30=136643&dgc=AF&cid=5212&lid=122756

Thanks, and Yes, I know how sad that sounds. . .

Just a quick one - if you order a Dell with Linux, will they provide you with Windows based drivers too? Or are these easily sourced from the Dell website? Reason being, I have my own copy of Vista thanks to work and would prefer to not pay for the OS if possible when buying a new laptop.
#9
you just download the drivers you require from the dell website

Figured as much. Shame they don't seem to offer more lines with Linux really, even if it results in a £20 saving over Windows etc. Bah.

Is there a trick to getting linux? It always seems to show windows for me
#13
I wouldn't recommend using Vista with only 1 gig of RAM. Xp runs quite happily but our poor 1 gig Vista laptop struggles trying to run more than 2 programs at once.
#14
not many systems are available with Linux by default. If you can't find linux listed on the system you are interested in then you'll need to cale Dell sales and speak to one of the folks there.
The link quoted in your post takes you to a system that has linux
#15
well if you update it to what really you need

i.e.
2GB RAM
Seperate Graphics Card

its still £339.00

if you get this machine MAKE SURE! you upgrade the RAM as 1GB RAM on Vista just does not work well what so ever, its runnable but for an extra £40 you can't go wrong. The £40 will make it already better.

I would also suggest as its Vista that you get the extra Graphics Card, for £50 it will just make it look nicer. And if you play any game what so ever its always better to have a seperate Graphics Card instead of using internal ones which just suck.

so £398.33

I personally am getting the Studio 15 range at £500 but thats because I will be using it for Video editing and Photo editing.
#16
RAM can be easily upgraded to 2GB but Basic should be fine on 1GB as the enhanced features of Home Premium are not included in this version. Really wanted one with Premium though.

"Due to unprecedented demand for this system, we regret to inform you of a prolonged delivery time on your order"

This message also should be noted as the delivery time will be awesomely long.
#17
good price THOUGH be careful with the Vostro range. There are inherent design fault with the nvidia GPU that is used in a number of Dell models.

see http://www.channelregister.co.uk/2008/08/19/dell_gpu_warranty_extension/ for details. Dell have admitted the fault and are now upping the warranty to cover.

Dell's fix (for a problem not caused by them I hasten to add) is to change the fan settings to be almost permanently on.

Will have to choose negative for this one based on it being a bad chip set. sorry
#18
Vista Basic with 1GB is fine. I've always got multiple programs and windows open with little to no slowdown. As long as you don't overload your laptop with **** it should be fine. Plus Home Basic doesn't use all the fancy Aero effects so there's not as much bloatware.

:-D

And how is this particular model affected? This has Intel Graphics, or am I missing something?
#20
The model quoted uses Intel graphics though so it doesn't contain the bad chipset...

or with 2 GIG - it still sucks!

BTW: Does anyone know if I buy this laptop, can I return Vista for a refund?

I'd like to go Linux or try and buy an XP license.

unfortunately you are missing something yes

If you have a problem with the laptop the first thing that Dell tell you you must do is to apply the latest BIOS (in fact the chances are that this machine will come with that BIOS - Rev A10).

That BIOS sets the fan to be almost on permanently regardless of your GPU chipset.

This means that if you are running on the battery, battery life will be reduced to the fan being on so much - it also means more wear and tear on parts which were designed to only be used when required not all the time.

I still say the price is good but dell's software fix for the hardware fault is actually shortening the life of this product.
#23
I got an HP laptop for the missus a few weeks ago and stuck Vista home premium on it. It had 1gig of ram, and it ran absolutely fine. If you just want to run Outlook and play with Excel and do some surfing, 1gig with Vista works just fine.

Having said that, for £14 I stuck another 1gig in it for when I want to use it. :)
#24
By the way, I completely lost track of this, but is it possible to buy Dells without any operating system these days? Or with Linux - does that make them any cheaper?

I've got 2 or 3 licences for Vista kicking around and want to use them rather than pay out yet again for another Windows licence are part of the cost of buying a laptop.
#25
Sorry to sound a bit thick here but have no experience with laptops but might be looking into getting one for my daughters birthday soon.
What wireless option would i need for this.I would look into maybe upgrading the memory.

I have VM internet access through a modem upstairs and have a wirelss router from them to use when needed too so have all that but i don't know if this laptop has the right card to be able to get online though it say downstairs.

Thanks

I just bought this at comet for £275 http://www.comet.co.uk/shopcomet/product/474428/FUJITSU-SIEMENS-AMILO-LI-2727-1

Seems to be not far off the spec of the Dell. Had to buy it because I needed it there and then.

I think you are reading a lot into this issue.

For one, don't update the bios if you have the Intel chipset, and if it is installed when you get it, and it is a problem, it will be apparent straight away, you have time to send it back!

No - you weren't missing anything. It's an Intel X3100 onboard graphics "solution" so there are no problems with it (except that it's slow). The problem referred to for which Dell is upping the warranty is the well publicised problem with the composition of certain chips from Nvidia.

Precisely as I thought then! :-)

Sorry i knw the specs ok for the price etc etc, but it has to have that intangible value in that a laptop has to look good as well and i#m sorry this just isn't. In fact they must have tried hard to make it look so dull, it looks even worse than the Vostro 1500 and just about any other laptop for sale.

I can't even begin to understand what goes into even thinking like this.

It is a laptop, laptop shape, laptop colour, laptop screen, laptop keyboard that sort of thing. A desktop, you might have to look at, but a 300 quid laptop is a tool, like a hammer or a screwdriver. Put it in a bag, it's cheap anyway, so not something to brag about, Vostro is even a business RANGE, and is a modern day typewriter - no-one ever cared what a typewriter looked like, and no one will ever care about this.

I can understand where your coming from, but end of the day is ugly as sin. I would consider a slightly lower spec laptop for about the same price if it looked better ;-)

not a bad price but would upgrade for 2gb ram
