Thanks for posting this. Unfortunately I cant see this getting much heat due to the extremely niche audience.

Nice specs though and price. :)

Heat from me :)

Over £2k for a REFURB laptop?

Specs are astonishing, but only a madman would pay that much for a refurb.

I am the madman that would pay that much for a refurb.

Dell Refurbs are irrelevent. It comes with 3 year Next business Day warranty.

For example; I received the laptop on Friday; It came with US Keyboard. 10 minutes on the phone to Dell, and on tuesday i had a UK Keyboard.

I agree, this laptop is not for everybody. I use my laptop for my business, and it IS heavily used. I dont think it is fair to vote it cold just because you dont have a requirement. At the end of the day this is a £4000 laptop for just over £2000.

If you dont like my deal...go price a simlar spec Dell, or alienware model...You wont get it for under £4000.

Nevermind. I like it!

Can I ask (not a baited question, genuinely want to know) - why would you want to pay this much for this much power on a laptop, as opposed to getting a "general spec" laptop and a high powered desktop for cheaper?

I just cant think of a reason off hand (I'm sure there are some!) why you would want or need this much power on the move?
#8
2 grand odd for a laptop , you off your head , what do you use the laptop for , hopefully gaming

crazy price

a would never pay that for a laptop
#9
Heat added.

Not for personal use obviously, and I doubt general business would need this, but, if you do need it, it's as good as a price as it gets lol.

I work as a software consultant.

I often need to run Visual Studio, SQL Server, Expression Blend, and at least 1 VMWare session simultaneously on my laptop. My Old Laptop, a Dell XPS1710 served me well for nearly 3 years. I paid £1700 for that in 2006, and when it got passed to my wife last week is still a decent spec laptop. It was however struggling to cope after a while and needed rebooting once or twice daily.

I find spending £2000 on a business laptop reasonable considering over the next 3 years it works out at less than £700 per year for what is effectively my entire business. I shopped around quite a bit for a decent spec quad core laptop; I considered lesser Brands but have always come back to Dell for the excellent usability, quality and high def screens, and for their superb warranty.

I still think it was a great deal. I am however sorry that I thought I would share it with the world.

seems like the usual crowd have hit this 1....too expensive is the call.....my deal it was too cheap not well specced for under £300

posters here want the mediocre garbage for £400
#12
I forgot to add;

As for people who seem to like £300-£400 laptops. I have found in the past that these are UNDER powered and get outdated within a month. By the time you put a windows installation and office on it, you have to wait for everything. I dont like waiting, and with 8GB Ram I dont have to.

I didnt want to be shopping for a new laptop again before Christmas....or Christmas 2012.

Not quite fair! People are allowed to not agree that its a great deal!

anyway - point taken on the power aspect....I do similar work, but usually on a desktop - if I need to access on a laptop, I use it thin via RDP.

Researchers need this sort of equipmentRunning heavy-duty scientific software, it can be a lot easier to have one set of data on one system with one configuration set and to transport that system between the lab and the office and home than to have three systems and have to move the data between, and potentially encounter various issues from configuration conflicts. It can work out cheaper, too. Two or three desktops and a laptop of this sort of spec might work out at maybe half this price on their own, but when you factor the cost of software licenses in, that can change easily, making this something of a bargain.

Edit: Oh, uh, power. Well, one of the researchers I know is working on a project that records wide-band acoustic emissions at 32bit at a sampling rate of 5MHz. That's some 600MB/s of data, and that requires an absurd amount of CPU to process.

alright. i get the net.

can we stop voting cold now? I am getting a complex.

Mind you...I am getting a VERY FAST complex on this laptop! lol...while running half a dozen VM Ware sessions.
