Hi,

Thanks for this post...

Just phoned the Dell sales line regarding this and was offered,

Xp home, collect and return warranty and the upgrade to the 9 cell battery for 420.00?

Is it better to go for Vista and the 9 cell battery and the quidco cashback for 433.00...

How good is vista?

Thanks for any opinions...

Cheers!
[mod]#3
Well I make it £403 after Quidco with the 9 cell and Vista, but please be aware that this deal has vista basic so no aero and the cpu is the cut down version of the core2duo which is reflected in the price.
You may be better off with XP home as far as getting other progs to work with it.
You may want to go look at some of the other posted dell laptop deals ;-)

Hi thanks

sorry the 433 is the base price before the quidco deduction.

I've never used quidco so unsure if it will work and track properly.

Dell want 15.00 for xp home instead of Vista so was a bit unsure if this was much of a bargain...

Anyway, the performance should be ok, as its only for browsing and running some base programs so compability is more important.

Dell wont offer XP over the web.

May try another sales consultant to see if I can beat the 420.00

Anyway thanks for your help.

Cheers!

MikeT,

The gf would like a laptop she can sitck in to her monitor at home and use for photoshop, a bit of video editing, surfing the web, etc...

Are any of these special offers up to that?

Thanks!
#7
Thanks MikeT,

That specification is much better - kind of puts it into perspective...

Is the 6 cell battery worth upgrading?

MAy have to rob the money box to find the extra 100 though.

I just hope it tracks ok in quidco. Expensive mistake to make if it doesn't work....

Thanks for all your advice..

Cheers!

I should think N03647 would be up to the job the 6400 has tv and vga out for connecting to an external tv or monitor.

Remember to clear your cookies before Quidco to be surer of it tracking, yes I would upgrade the battery if your thinking of using this mobile.
I'm only showing you whats available for not a lot more outlay, sorry I dont do personal loans ;-)
#10
Cool,

Thanks for the advice - quidco does seem the best bet.. fingers crossed

Trouble is the justification. It's only for the misses, a bit of web browsing and running some older software..

But perhaps I can swap with my old acer!! :thumbsup:

Need to make a decision today though..

How soon does the quid co kick in with dell...

Cheers

Would the Dell Inspiron 1501 15.4" AMD Dual Core 2GB RAM, 120GB HD, Vista laptop be significantly more powerful?
#12
Slightly different question - I have placed the order online - but just read that there is a possibility to have XP Home!
Can Dell change the orders after you have placed them?
The call centre is closed -and the emails fail to send (and no customer number yet)
I'm not looking to cancel - just change operating system
I do have an XP Home boxed edition already - but looking at Vista dual booting on google - I am not sure if it is possible to install XP after Vista on a laptop. Any guidance appreciated.
The reason for the question is that the drivers for an external soundcard I have have not been released for Vista yet.

ought


No, about the same depending on the app you benchmark it with, see my blog sidebar for cpu listings
[mod]#14
Ros I think they would have you cancel and reorder, you could always image the drive to an external one then instal XP for now, putting Vista back when its proven usable
#15
Thanks for the advice MikeT - the imaging sounds like a great suggestion. I use Ghost at work - so I will give it a go!
#16
I found this knowledge base article that sounds like I might have a 'Workaround' where I can install XP as if dual booting - but get back to Vista later

Ros, you could always leave Vista alone and just run Virtual PC for anything thats not Vista friendly.
