This system has dropped in price from previous price of £579.00

Remember to reduce the warranty to minimum where applicable and buy via *Quidco for further cashback savings.

I have upgraded both the graphics card to 256meg and the hard drive to 2x120Gb drives and used the attached voucher to get the above price. You may want to alter the spec differently, just be sure to get over £599 to use the voucher.

WHAT? Why do Dell keep doing this?

Just tried the same spec laptop I ordered in early Jan and it's much cheaper...cancellation in progress.
[mod]#2
If this carries on Dell will go bust with 1000's of laptops in various states of flux...getting ordered...built...dispatched....cancelled...returned...reordered :?

Thing is, I ordered the same system for £589 using your other Dell 1720 topic. Now it's £553.95. I do feel like I'm getting bumped off. Good thing the laptop's been in pre-production for over 2 weeks now!

EDIT: And no I'm not reordering. I can't wait another year for my laptop to be built. Still a good deal but I prefer to shop elsewhere where the laptop arrives in less than 2 weeks.

I've customised it to match the spec I ordered in early Jan and my order is still cheaper thanks to free delivery at the time.

Note to anyone considering this, you probably won't get it until late Feb early March.

Hmm, I must be doing something wrong here. I customise it to 2x120GB and a 256MB graphics card, so the price is bumped to £599, and then take it through to the final basket screen and get

Unit price £719.01
Discount -£180
Sub-tot £539.01
Delivery £60
Total price £599.00

Without changing the spec, the price is £669 and still get £180 off. Has the original unit price gone up during the day?

Not to worry though, it's a bit out of my budget. I'm keeping an eye on the WUXGA models though (1920x1200). I'm quite happy to play games on my 'proper' PC instead, but I find it very handy to have a 'big' screen for developing.

Did you use the attached voucher?

My January 9th order still works out £18(ish) cheaper, like for like, ie truelife screen and 2.0C2D, but what is the point of these deals, thay can't supply the orders they have.
This is still an awesome deal though, I cannot find anything spec for spec for this price from anyone else, not even close on price.

Cheers Freemart.

I suspect if I ordered one, I'd be forever cancelling it and re-ordering. If they keep on at this rate they will be giving you one free by May!

you dont have to alter the spec to get the 10% off as their price before money off offer is over £599 tried it and got a price of £505 ... of course thats with origanal 128 meg grahic card and 250 gig hard drive
.....by the way can anyone please tell me what advantage of the 240 gig sata drive has over the 250 gig one also I was thinking about a trulife screen but have just been reading a whole load of bad comments about them ...great colour and def but suffers from terrible reflection becomes more like a shaving mirror if used outside or near a light source anyone got any comments , would not like to pay out for one if this is going to happen ... thanks in advance for any comments

The price without altering the spec is actually £500.09 but the idea is to better the deal for the least money, so changing the graphics card to 256meg has to be a good move for anyone attempting gaming on this. The reason for selecting 240Gb hard drive is that its 2x120Gb drives so you can keep your OS on one and your other data on the other.
The Truelife screen is a very personal thing and as I have said before please go to PC World and take a look at reflective and non reflective screens there to be sure before ordering that you get what you want. I prefer the truelife, finding the plain screen a bit dull.
Using a laptop outside in sunlight will always be a struggle truelife or not, unless you have a very high nit/high contrast screen which these are not.

Yes it will play most with maybe the eye candy turned down on some. Games like farcry will play in low detail quite easily on notebooks with on board graphics so the 128meg will do better. I always say this but its worth repeating, you will always wish you went for the extra of the top spec graphics at some stage after ownership and it cant be upgraded so what you get you have to live with, it also helps resale value imo.
