#3
cheap for a lappy, hot deal!
#4
This is a used product.

I got a dual core laptop with 2gig ram off of here just over a week ago, this deall is not a very good.
#6
its not even new?
not much of a deal, this model is 3+ years old.
#7
Would pay the extra money for better spec and new sorry cold

We have one of those that we bought new about 5 years ago. Pretty good but not the most robust chassis, ours has had two sets of hinges and also needed a new motherboard under warranty. That said even with the 1.4 centrino it out performed the 1.73 Inspiron 6000 that was bought a couple of years later by a very big margin. I wouldn't pay £190 for a second hand one though, maybe half that.

ive got the d500 and liked it so much i got the d600 of ebay for 130.

D-series Latitudes are very good business laptops. Batteries, DVD drives, docking stations etc are standardised and interchangable with any D-series. We used D600's, D610's and D620's at my previous work. I recently picked-up a D600 with a spec similar to the Big Pockets ones for 130 quid at Cash Converters. They had quite a few when I bought mine 2/3 weeks ago (Huntingdon branch).

why not put afew quid on top and get a new one with case and mouse http://www.misco.co.uk/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=316129&CatId=2742

A 1.4GHz Centrino/Pentium-m is more around the P4 2.2Ghz mark, you don't just double the number.

The D600's are solid enough laptops but to be honest I don't think this is worth it, given how cheap some of the new Vostro deals (and solid machines) are I'd go for one of them.

Very poor deal, not much cheaper than a brand new Dell and hardly "Blazing Fast" especially with 512Mb Ram and only 30Gb hard drive.

I agree its a poor deal indeed , seeing as you could on Dixons website get dual core ones refubished for £199

Yes 'really' - the doubling of the clockspeed was a common misconception (and clearly still is) with the Pentium-m processor as people had difficulty grappling with the fact that the much lower clocked processor could match higher clocked Pentium4's. The early Pentium-m's struggled with sales as people could have a P4 2.8Ghz processor for the same price as a Pentium-m 1.5Ghz so they went for the seemingly better P4. This is where the doubling started as this made the P-m look much better against the P4 and helped sales. Of course someone selling a laptop is going to want you to think the clock speed is worth double that when comparing to a Pentium4, they're trying to get you to buy the laptop and are hardly impartial.

The 1.4Ghz in the D600 is the first generation version of the processor (Banias) running on a 400Mhz FSB (Intel 855 chipset) and 1MB cache. For a proper read up on this processor and its relative performance, this is a properly written tech article by one of the most respected tech sites around:

http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.aspx?i=1800&p=1
Looking at the performance figures:

http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.aspx?i=1800&p=14

You'll see the slightly faster P-m 1.5Ghz processor is around the level of a Pentium4 clocked at 2.2Ghz which would put the 1.4Ghz slightly below. Even the faster 1.6Ghz Pentium-m can only occasionally surpass the P4 2.66Ghz. The performance difference is variable as the two processors are quite different, the lengthy P4 pipeline meant it could tear through video processing and rendering which was a weak point for the P-m but in other tasks the P-m could perform better. Also bear in mind that the P4's used in the test are the older ones, not the newer versions such as the Northwood C/Prescott which had a higher FSB (the P4 architecture thrived on memory bandwidth) and were faster clock for clock then their predecessors.

I had a Dell Pentium M and was told it would perform as well as a Pentium 4 2.8. IT DID NOT.
