How do you get to this deal via Quidco? it's not on the offers link
#2
Hi, i've been watching this site for laptop offers for some time, is this a really good deal?
We don't have any specific requirements other than the best deal with reasonably up to date tech, thanks, Paul.
[mod]#3
Copy the ecode you want then go to Quidco, sign into your account and click through to dell, enter the ecode in the box and buy
#4
Thanks Mike!

What's the E-Value code?
[mod]#5
Want it with Genuine Windows XP Professional then click Here

Thanks Mike!

What's the E-Value code?


This is the ecode 305-N06153

put 305 in the first box and N06153 or N06153xp if you want it with xp pro in the second box with no leading or trailing spaces.
The ecode page link can be found on the left sidebar of the Dell main home page ;-)
#7
Mike could I get this deal with vista home premium? rather than business what would be the ecode
Thanks

Hi, How does this deal compare to the acer one posted a couple of days ago: - Acer Laptop Deal
I have ordered the Acer laptop and it came in at £312.11 with 1Gb of RAM. I notice this Dell laptop has a dual core processor, not sure on the differences, but which is the best buy?? (I still have the opportunity to cancel it at the moment)
Thanks I'm pretty confused!

Go Here But its £399 delivered and ecode 305-N06156

The only other option is to call dell and ask if they will swop the os for you on 305-N06153 but you will loose the quidco that way.
#10
How long do they take to deliver just wondering if i go through Quidco wait till it is tracked then ring to ask to have it changed hmmm, or maybe just let it come then ring to say i want to send it back has i dont want business will have to think about this one
#11
I ordered the N06153A (not this one but nearly) on Saturday and its coming tomorrow, already tracked on quidco as well.

Thanks to MikeT for all these Dell posts BTW.

Does the 90 day collect and repair mean that u only have 90 day warrenty? i thought u always got a year!

No, the warranty has to be 12 months by law. The 90 days is the period when Dell will pay for collection from, and delivery back to, the customer. In some cases they will waive the transit charge after this depending on how they feel. Lets face it, most PCs will go wrong before 90 days if they are going to.
#14
Damn, I bought one of these for my friend on Sunday, and it came yesterday...and he paid £399.

Anyone know if there's a price promise with Dell and if there's any chance of refunding the difference?
#15
Wonderful! Laptop Purchased and money in quidco already
#16
Been waiting for a laptop for a while from Dell, i think now might be the time to buy

I've heard that if you call up and say you are a returning customer they will give you a discount / extra's, is this true? I am actualy a returning customer, brought this dell desktop two years ago

Just a few things:

[LIST]
[*]Getting this laptop for uni to go a computing course. Would it be powerful enough to run everything?
[*]Planning to get a TV card so i dont have to take a telly, would this be ok for this? Again is it powerful enough?
[*]Is it good value to upgrade to a better battery?
[*]Would loosing the ~£15 quidco be worth the upgrade for premium?
[*]Thats a dedicated graphics card yeah?
[/LIST]

Thanks v much for your help [dont know much about laptops as you can see lol]

Upgrade the CPU for £25 to the TL52, it's the only chance you'll ever have so take it.

The dedicated graphics cards uses system memory, if you have 1024mb ram it assigns 128mb to the card, if you have 2048 then it assigns 256mb.

Although you should buy this laptop with 1024mb ram you should shop around and upgrade to 2048mb for around half of what dell want. You will notice a significant increase in performance doing this. Plus add an SD Ram card and use it as a speedboost, i.e. Vista uses the memory card instead of the hard drive to store temp cache files and this in turn can make things faster.

I would prefer a laptop with no battery as mine is constantly plugged in and when used for work it has to be plugged in. If you plan to use this away from a mains power supply for any period of time and it is an issue then upgrade the battery, if not don't.

As far as I know you can use a TV card (pcmcia) on a pentium III and it will still perform, it's only when you capture and start to convert captured video you will need a faster PC. The TV card does all the work so it will be fine.

Phone them and say you have changed your mind they will normally knock at least 10 % off if you agree to keep it.

#24
I just phoned up regarding this deal and was told they had none left and to phone back tomorrow, Is this normal practice? Can anyone give any tips as to what i should say when I want to try and get freebies.

The guy I spoke to didn't really seem to bothered tbh.
#25
LOL they only build the laptop after you placed your order. so they lied to you. I would call back again until you speak to someone better.

Cheers for your reply, will upgrade to the TL52, its more like £35 tho lol :thumbsup:

Wont be recording that much, dont watch much telly really but would like it for freeview and the occasional show.

Any suggestions on a mid range TV card (with freeview)?

Cheers
#29
Whats so special about Windows Media Center btw? Looking at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsvista/editions/choose.mspx the media center thing is the only decent feature, not bothered about the games and the rest of the stuff.

For viewing TV is this just an extra as i would still be able to watch it with just a standard version supplied on the disc?

Surely this deal is much better than the other one
Dell Inspiron 6400 notebook. dualcore 1.73Ghz, 1gig, 120Gb, dvdrw just £386.58 delivered!

Seems more powerful and yet cheaper?!

Can anyone shed any light on the above?
[mod]#35
The 6400 has Svideo (tv) out plus firewire and a better battery. Other than that its a fight between the 2 cpu's and as I dont have a comparison between them I cant say which is the best.
#36
There's also the added advantage that the 6400 has the 12 month collect and return warranty.....just in case there are problems and you don't want any hassle with Dell later down the road.

Spoke to a really decent bloke at Dell who called me back and tried many combinations to get close to this price. He stopped short of callling me a liar when I mentioned this to him, I am not sure I'll be so polite for you.

Even with a smaller drive and XP it was £400, that's with the 2gb and TL52. Even allowing for half price memory it is over £370 without the rest.
