As is now pretty usual you do need to go all the way to checkout to get the final price, wish dell would change that as it must put buyers off before they even get that far!

Anyway, if you were considering this deal, dont add the upgraded drive and memory, if you do then your better off with this deal as it has a better cpu for the same final price.

The 6400 cant have different colours other than buying the snap on lids at around £35 extra.

(I know.. i should upgrade the hdd for a tenner, but i am really extending my budget as it is - im a student lol)

anyhows, 5% through quidco/ around 18 quid, which brings the total to 345 or thereabouts.

My question is.. I ordered one of the vostro deals I spotted yesterday and my solo was rejected. I have a visa... but I'll have to check my statement before I purchase. Do you know when Dell will take the money for that? Is it worth me risking ordering this system now and putting some money into my account in the morning?
[mod]#14
This deal should run for a week so maybe you can put the money into the account first ;-)
#15
Due to unprecedented demand for this system, we regret to inform you of a prolonged delivery time on your order

For my last two system orders from Dell they have delivered much earlier than their estimate, so the dates they quote tend to be worst case.

Seems a better buy to me. ....Unless you particularly want the design of the 6400 case or have an aversion to AMD (some people do !)

( Not voting this cold.. just think that it is not the best on offer at the mo ).
#19
Nice one Mike, this is awesome deal rep and heat added, along with the other one keep posting mate, ignore the Tosh!!!!!!!!!!!!
#20
seriously tempted to sell my 15.4" Acer core 2 duo 1.6Ghz, 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD which I bought 3 weeks ago and get this. The one thing I like about my Acer is that the HDD is made by Seagate and DVD by LG. Does anyone know who the HDD and DVDRW manufacturers are for Dell. The reason I ask is that my NEC laptop DVDRW was made by Philips and it caused me no end of problems. If I get it, it will cost me £330 with a truelife screen after Quidco which seems like a good deal.

Im not sure either… ideally I would like a 9 cell as short battery life annoys me. Its £23.50 to upgrade from 4 cell to 9 cell on the vostro.
Its £20 to upgrade from a 6cell to a 9 cell on the 6400 (not as good value).
From looking at CPU performance, the TL60 AMD is about as strong as a T2300, T2400 Core Duo, so I am sure it would definitely be as good as the 2 CPU’s in the 6400 at the mo.
The downside is that you lose some connectivity, (such as firewire).
So for my spec (9 cell) its £350 for the 1.73ghz 6400, £371 for the Vostro 2ghz AMD, or £400 odd for the 1.86ghz 6400.
The 1.73ghz is luring me because its cheaper and has the connectivity. I guess I can upgrade the RAM if required later…and the CPU is still adequate for the surfing that is required. But £20 gets the Vostro, which is quicker, has 2gb RAM instead of 1, but no firewire etc.
Decisions decisions….
I guess as our other laptop has firewire, this just needs to be a basic use PC, which means it doesn’t need firewire. But on that account, it doesn’t need 2 gb either .
Arghh….
[mod]#22
oh the troubles of choosing....the graphics on both are not strong but I would think the Vostro should just have the edge, having said that the 6400 chipset graphics will play far cry with some eye candy removed.
You will soon if not now be able to buy an express card to give you firewire, not yet cheap in the UK though.
There thats made it easier hasnt it!
#23
Thanks Mike.
Games dont interest me or the gf..so graphics just need to be able to cope with Vista etc.
I bought a type II card that worked with Firewire for £15 on Vista for a relative...so I guess its not an issue if its needed later.
But reading a review, they said the Vostro looked a bit cheap and plasticky. Most silver laptops soon show their use though, so the Vostro may look worse to begin with, but hold its looks better.
I think I am edging towards the Vostro. £20 more than the basic 6400, but with a better CPU (I think) and double the RAM, and a newer chassis. Just have to accept that it doesnt have firewire, and it has poorer speakers I believe.
[mod]#24
If it helps smashed, I have a Vostro 1700 here (among the collection of dell notebooks I seem to have acquired for the family) I also have a 6400 and of the two the Vostro certainly looks more business like, all black and feels very sturdy. No point trying to compare more than that as its a top spec one.
#25
Thanks mate.
Not that its needed for Business..but class is class ;)

My niece is looking for a laptop for around the £300 mark is the best deal about bearing in mind the jan sales?she only needs it for general use maybe playing the odd game.Many thanks:)

Just when do you buy? Well I will be buying but there are so many deals and thanks to MikeT for all his posts. Why should I buy this one when this one http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/128288/dell-cheap-vostro-1700-notebook-2gh/all/deals/hot/

Its a difficult call really, at £350 they are both good deals, 17" is a big screen so not so portable as the 15.4" 6400.
The 6400 has been with us some time now so is maybe longer in the tooth than the Vostro 1700. I doubt you would notice too much difference between the 2 cpu's, especially if you went with the faster drive upgrade on the Vostro.
Boils down to portability really in the end I guess, lugging a 17" beast about isnt fun.

Dell dont usually have Jan sales so its anyones guess if the prices will rise when these deals finish.

Hi, portability is i would say not too much of an issue as in I won't be really be going around town and loggin on as such, however never say never. Faster drive.. did I see you mention not to bother with that earlier?? Might be mistaken. I would be happy to buy today

Buying the faster Vostro 1700 drive is a no brainer, its 160Gb against the 120Gb for £11 and its faster as well, its an error on dells part and prob should be £111 extra.
#31
Perhaps consider this too..
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/127287/dell-vostro-1000-notebook-tl60-2gig/all/all/hot/

The CPU is better it seems.
2GB ram instead of 1 with either of the models you are looking at (which I would advise if you are on Vista)
You would need to pay the extra £11 tho really to get the 6 cell battery (I went for 9)

Am breaking out in a sweat here, checked out the Vostro and I don't think i want to be lugging around the 17 screen.Priced up the inspiron6400 with 2048mb ram with 10% code off gets me a price of £363.84 (without quidco). now I really don't want to cough more than £350, so mebbe a call to Dell will secure?? Any thoughts before I jump head first??:-D
#33
10% code? You need to spend £500 for that dont you? So you wont get that price I dont think.
I spent a lot of time wondering which was best. The Vostro is a better / quicker machine.
The 6400 has Firewire built in though, and a few multimedia buttons on it.
However, you could always stick a firewire card in the Vostro if you need it 1 day for £15.
If you need 2gb RAM, you have to lose both 512MB in the 6400, and but 2 x 1gb..which is a pain.

So I picked the Vostro. And I would guess the silver 6400 would show its age quicker than the black vostro.

That said..if you are just doing basic surfing and word..you may consider the small saving of the £327 6400 to be worth it , especially if you prefer silver.

The bottom line for me was this....
why do people buy a new PC...because theirs is too slow.
So...I bought the Vostro....which is the best at that price range.

It is for basic surfing, not so much anything else really as I will have a 500gb external hard drive (back up from my desktop) The Vostro does get me just need to keep it no more than £350 as where do I stop? the 10% code worked for me easy from a post earlier today perhaps because the order went over £500 then at the checkout it dropped the price but kept the discount:whistling:
#35
don't think I will go for the 6400 then but need to chat with Dell on the Vostro directly methinks
#36
