Dell's Inspiron 17 is a portable PC packed with features. Powered by Windows Vista Premium and Pentium Dual Core processor, this high-spec powerhouse boasts a desktop size 17.3" widescreen and dual headphone jack for perfect media playback. A standout for value and style, the Inspiron 17 comes with 250GB of hard disk drive storage, 2GB memory and Bluetooth & Wi-Fi enabling.

£329 standalone price + 5% Quidco (£16.45)

Saw it in the City A.M paper. Seems an excellent deal on a 17" dual-core laptop. The processor BTW is a 2Ghz T4200 (See here for benchmarks http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=Pentium+Dual-Core+T4200+%40+2.00GHz). I'm unsure what GPU is inside there, but it does say 'graphics by nvidia'

Hi
Thanks for posting. And welcome to HUKD.
It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes.
Emmajk42 / Juliet_Bravo wrote a couple of very comprehensive and excellent guides for newcomers to HUKD here: - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/145906/newcomers-advice-on-hotukdeals-gene/

They are well worth taking a look at.
Again, thanks for posting, and welcome to HUKD.
Kind regards Andy

Thats actually a very good deal for a 17" laptop.

And it has Home Premium rather than Home Basic.
#4
Hmmm, I can't seem to see any mention of a "free" upgrade to Windows 7.
#5
Where does it say is qualifies for Windows 7??

It said it qualified for Windows 7 upgrade in the newspaper where I saw the ad.

Plus, I don't see why Carphone warehouse has to be in the title twice..! I'll change it now.

Please can you scan the AD and add. If Windows 7 upgrade included then potentially a very good deal :thumbsup:

Does it say how much it will cost?
Free? Free with administration costs? :roll:
#12
Flick to page 7 ---->http://www.cityam.com/cityam-today/

It's on the left "Free Windows 7 Upgrade*". The asterisk leads you to a part saying P&P fees apply.

I've just added a link. I didn't keep the newspaper btw, so I don't have anything to scan in.

Really good find .This is a proper bargain and the nearest to this spec comes in at £450 on the Dell site .However i would print off the specs in case it turns up running a celeron processor lol.
#15
"portable" lol these things are huge!!! But they are ok laptops for general use. good price :D
#16
Is this all stores or just a certain one.
#17
Can anyone confirm what GPU this thing uses.
#18
I like the price but worry about Cwh are they any good if anything goes wrong?
#19
not a bad price
#20
I've gone for it ... thanks for posting ... i thought with the quidco its a monster deal!!!! cant wait to get it ... cheers again!!!!
#21
It looks like the model is Dell Inspiron 1720
Go to the deal and at the bottom you can two more options with Mobile broadbands. If you click one of them and it says the model is 1720 with LED backlight. Looks very good for the price.

It's not, if you click around enough, on the left pane for recently viewed items, the Inspiron 1720 and Inspiron 17 are two distinct models.
Excellent value and performance at £329 though.
#23
At a risk of sounding daft it says on the CPW site dvd drive. does this mean dvd only??

and is the 1720 differen to the dell 17?

help?
#24
Ignore the second question tubby2076 just answered it thanks
#25

Dvd question already asked, apologies

The 1720 is a 2 year old model...they've obviously found a batch in the warehouse
#32
Good find - heat & rep added:thumbsup:
#33
Graphics more than likely the nVidia GeForce 8600M GT Graphics with 256MB Dedicated RAM or
nVidia GeForce 8400M GS Graphics with 128MB Dedicated RAM

Still a good deal, I'm tempted so will go instore tomorrow and check if its the 8600 i'll be walking out with one:thumbsup:
#34
great price compared to Dell website
#35
Dont think it is dedicated graphics on this,This is only a basic model but good value with the new pentium processor,
#36
Thanks for the find. Heat and rep added

Ordered via quido: job done: pick up from store tomorrow. ( I hope ):-D

Post 100 ( Hope i'm laughing tomorrow )

before you rush out to nab one of these.

As far as i can see on Dell site graphics are Intel GMA 4500MHD
#39
Just been to the Dell.co.uk web site to see what is the nearest current model available..it seems like the graphics for the current model is an integrated GMA 4500MHD. The current model has T4300 CPU, DVD RW and 320GB disk and 4GB memory. This one from CPW is an older model but it is a bargain at £329 unless of course Dell bring out a £50 or £80 offer discount before Xmas as the current model is about £450.

Which is likely. I would rather wait for a better and newer model. Still a hot price though.
