Double the RAM of last offer but half the hdd. The Truelife screen upgrade is well worth it as well as the battery upgrade. V impressed with mine from the misprice. Don't forget quidco for 4.5%.

its 5.5% quidco now :)

very nice offer! would be better if it was £20 cheaper than getting a printer with it tho.
#3
Thanks for correction hajj.
Tis excluding VAT though. so 5.5% of the £452.72 = £24.90

so cost at tend of cashback = £523.85
#4
As mentioned by hajj_3 already :) Thanks ;-)
#5
Thanks for the feedback seancambell :) There's always something slightly different with their bargain deals. I think QuidCo is 5.5% this month ;-)

If its of use to anyone considering this deal, I had a couple of the mispriced ones and set up Far cry on one just to see how well it played and with the 1.31 patch applied it was fine on auto settings for graphics with no lag on gunfire etc. The misprice had just 512meg ram and it showed with lots of file swopping going on to virtual memory on return to desktop but his should do the job very well with 1gig.

Hi. I'm thinking of ordering one of these. Is it right that Dell offer new deals every Thursday? Does anyone think it might be better to wait until then?

Remember your rights. 7 day DSR meaning if a really good deal comes along on Thursday you can send this laptop back. Also maybe if it is reduced (I doubt it) you can argue with the help desk to try and get the difference refunded.

I'm tempted to order this purely because my £300 Acer cannot handle Vista :roll:
[mod]#9
If you want to back both horses each way ;-) then dont order until midday Wednesday, then check my posts here on Thursday morning, if there is a better deal buy it, then afterwards cancel the original.
Or as johncas has said you could try for the difference as a discount on the original order instead, though if the spec has changed they may just ask you to cancel and reorder anyway.
Please do remember that Dells T&C suggest that you will be charged shipping for any returned units under DSR so best not wait till its been sent before cancelling.

so which one is better out of the two this one or the amd turion for under £500
my wife just split tea over my dell 510m so i need to order another!
oh and how do you use quidco on these two? (codes i suppose)
#11
Looking at a few reviews they seem to suggest the Core 2 Duo processor is pretty much the best processor available on the market at the moment. So I would go for the Intel over the AMD.
#12
Thanks for that idea MikeT. Do I take it that there is a 24 hour opportunity to cancel an order then?
#13
Sorry to bump this thread, but has anyone had an luck in cancelling an order the next day in order to take advantage of a better offer released that morning?
[mod]#14
You will be able to cancel with no problem, do it by phone though as they take too long to read emails. Sometimes some of the deals change just after midnight tonight so dont wait too long if your thinking of placing an order.
Bear in mind your credit card will have reserved funds alocated for the cancelled one, so make sure there is enough credit there to place a second order ;-)
Dont forget Quidco too!
You may also find that if you phone to cancel they may just make the first order discounted to get you to take it, if they do and its a better deal, agree to that and then phone again later to cancel the 2nd order ;-)

[SIZE=2]whats the code number of this one for quidco or can i just browse to it from there?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]thanks for the help.[/SIZE]
[mod]#16
I always put the ecodes for each deal in the first post, this one is 305-N11646
Once on Dells main page, enter the codes into the 2 boxes on that page.

thansk MikeT
[mod]#18
This deal is still available this week 16 Nov onwards, but the price is up £1 and no free printer either now although you can have a basic one for £10 with it.
#19
looks like the links down or the offer is finished

I'm actually after a dell laptop.. got 500- 700 Maximum to spend..

wondered if anyone knew the differences between the dual core AMD chips that they are now discounting and the original Inspiron 6400

I fancy something with a big chunk of RAM, a decent graphics card in it.. and a chip that's not going to chug along. I watched the deals for nearly a year and the main ones didn't fluctuate that much after christmas..

anyone got any good tips on when i should buy and what chip to have in it..

??

Tony,

The 6400 are a good place to start. The Duo 2 Core processors are from benchmarks and reviews far better that the AMD processors currently on offer. So start with a 6400, upgrade the gfx to the ATI x1400 256, have at least 1gb of ram (preferably as 1024 x 1, rather than 512 x 2 - then you can upgrade easily later on). If you still have some cash left over upgrade the HD to the 7,200 speed one. I think you should be able to get most of that for under £700 once you reduce the Service level down. Should end up something like this:

PROCESSOR - Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T5500 (1.66 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 667 MHz FSB)
OPERATING SYSTEM - Genuine Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2005 (incl Operating System Re-Installation CD)
VISTA UPGRADE - MCE to Vista Premium Upgrade on www.dellvistaupgrade.com before 03/31/07
SUPPORT SERVICES - Collect & Return, 1 Year Service only
LCD - 15.4" Wide Screen WXGA (1280 x 800) Display with TrueLife™
MEMORY - 1024MB 533MHz Single Channel DDR2 SDRAM (1x1024)
HARD DRIVE - 80GB (7,200rpm) Hard Drive
OPTICAL DRIVE(S) - Fixed Internal 8X DVD+/-RW with Software
GRAPHICS CARD - 256MB ATI® Mobility™ Radeon® X1400 HyperMemory™ graphics card
PRIMARY BATTERY - 9 Cell, 85Whr Lithium Ion Primary Battery
