great runner... but isn't 15.6" a bit too small? You'd want at least 17" with this beast, or just output to a big screen
Hot though
#2
Works for me as I'd prefer the 15.6, had a 17" before and at least I can just about carry the 15.6" around - no chance with the 17" but good for the biceps.

I would also add the backlit keyboard for an extra £30 (although the coupons would mean 16% would come off that price)
#3
using the same machine right now - if you want the backlit keyboard they are only £11 from ebay sellers. Don't buy from Dell...

Voted cold by me as I paid quite a bit less a few months ago for the same machine.
#4
Thx Liddle ol' me - how are you finding the machine, do you recommend it, would appreciate your feedback?

When did you buy it and what price saving roughly from this level? I guess depends what offer Dell is running at any particular point in time - was it the same spec as I added the blu ray player too and this has the full HD screen?

To be fair, I go it on Outlet so I shouldn't really compare and it doesn't have blu-ray. I paid under £600. It does have the full HD screen and I can confirm it's very good - a BIG improvement on my M1330 screen. The machine is fast, quiet and surprisingly cool compared to my M1330. The i7 means that it doesn't break a sweat when I have Lightroom, Photoshop 5 and 20+ tabs on my browser going at the same time. The Core 2 Duo 2.5 on the M1330 would have real trouble doing that and would be burning hot and noisy. The fan on this one is much quieter and rarely needs to kick in, unlike the M1330.

@ dt_matthews - salejuly is one examplek
#7
oh yeah, the one thing I don't like about this machine compared with the M1330 is the plastic keyboard. Feels cheap when you are used to the stainless steel version.
#8
Thanks Liddle ol' me

Ironically I have a M1330 now so good to see that this is a solid improvement. I found the M1330 stalls a lot when I'm trying to multi-task so I really wanted something very fast. How is the battery length on the i7 machine when used at full tilt?

Glad to hear that your price was through the outlet, a good deal though, so this seems a decent deal for a configurable one and includes £100 of extras that I added for Blu Ray and network card. I wanted the blu ray so I can rip my BluRay collection into MKV files and store and view through server - it added on £90 but it was needed anyway to get the price to the level required for the 10% voucher code.

I also found I bought my M1330 around Sept in 2008 and the price went up afterwards as Dell seemed to have good pricing for this time of year pre-school/Uni starting.
#9
btw you can use the code on systems where the base price is 949 - so this would have initialy qualified.
base system becomes 766 delivered -quidco
obviously you want bluray but not everyone does and thought id clarify the voucher is before the -378 price

thanks for posting though as forgot was threshold was 949 and not 1000 ^^

if only they allowed me to take out the 6gb ram and put in 4gb and save 180quid as they charge to upgrade to that lol
(difference is price is about 65quid in reality)

The 10% discount voucher will work on most machines over 949 pre-discount price (not that Del have ever sold any machine without a discount voucher so that's arbitrary - bit like DFS in that respect)
#11
cheers@ brilly and twinkle hadn't realised - even better for some people (have edited original message)

think systems have changed overnight - seems quite a few with no discounts
usually ends up similar but with no base discount its alot harder to use codes
before i was able to spec the system i wanted and use the 10% now i can only use the 5

knew i should have went for the studio15 in clearance last night - older tech but alot better value for money ~ 530quid for about a 700quid on new line p8700 vs i3-350 ddr2 vs ddr3 and 545v vs 5470

if anyone doesn't want the 6gb ram either you can spec the same as the base spec this with 4gb for 700-quidco from the signature event

how does the backlit keyboard works? do you change the keyboard with led underneath the keyboard or does it come with the keyboard? I would love to change it to backlit but mine is studio 1749, can anyone point me to the rightway? i saw some on ebay and would like to buy one
#14
the battery life is just ok on heavy use, not as good as the equivalent cell size on the M1330.

next time I'm on battery I'll do some timings

backlit keyboard I haven't bought yet, so can't comment

Why?
I have a Dell XPS with a 15.6 screen - 1080p looks great on it and you really notice the quality difference between DVD and Blu-ray :D

If this has the same super-shiny screen you'll need the backlit keyboard as it's easiest to use in a dark room!!!
#16
I've just checked out the performance benchmarks for the HD 5470; this seems quite a mismatched system; i7, 6Gb ram but a comparatively puny HD 5470. Somthing like an HD 5650 would be a better match.

Not to say this isn't a capable machine - Liddle ol' me has commented on it's performance - and I guess the low power GPU will be an advantage when it comes to battery life etc.

I have the M1530 which uses the same keyboard as the M1330...

these are not stainless steel keys... just a good quality plastic imitation.

I've purchased this Dell laptop without the Blu-Ray but added Windows 7 Professional and i paid £939 inc del (still waiting). If the keys are of less quality build than the M1530/M1330... i would be upset. :(
