Good deal; shame the processor can't be upgraded.

Interesting that neither this configuration; N0055807, nor the non-discounted configuration N0055808 appear on dmxdimension yet.

7200 rpm HDD is a mixed blessing IMO; faster but eats more juice.

I haven't quite worked out the i-series yet...

This is effectively a quad core, utilising hyper threading? If so, looks excellent. Very tempting to use my contact with Dell to get it cheaper! Wonder how much it would cost for the equivalent in Studio 17 with better screen res...

Although I suppose it would be worth holding out eventually for an i7M deal? Or are the odds of that happening in the next 3 years slim? :p

i3-330M Processor basically has 2 cores

Have a read; dual core with support for hyper-threading; no turbo boost.

I would never consider a virtual core (via hyper-threading) a replacement for a physical core.
Hyper-threading reduces the effective through-put of the real core on which it is hosted, and in extreme situations the management overheads can actually cause a reduction in total through-put!

looks like cant upgrade wireless card either

what kind of contact, any chance we could replicate it to also get it cheaper?

looks decent for the money,i want the old days back when there was some real dell bargains too be had :thumbsup:
#10
The current Studios are excellent laptops. Good price for a new core and a fast HDD.

EDIT: Actually, is this just the desktop version of the CPU? Won't be great on battery life if it is...

I'm angling for the i5 - comparative to the i7's for speed and far superior for power comsumption. Annoyingly this model comes with the (relatively) ropey 4570 graphics card. I'm after the XPS 16 model, but at present I can match the specs identically between that and the Studio 15 (except 5400 drive (circa £30 diff), bluetooth (~£5) and 6-cell vs 9-cell batt (~£30) - the resulting total price difference is £390. 390 quid for a better gpu. Having a giggle. :(

Dont be put off by this only being 2.13ghz as the I3 is a significant improvement over the old core 2 duos and will also give a
good boost to its gaming capabilities,

so this cpu is nearly as good as the last gen very best desktop intel dual cores, n't quite as good as my e8400 3ghz but betters the older e7600 3ghz. very impressive!!

I've stopped using passmark as a performance benchmark; it's often woefully inaccurate.
Case in point, I doubt very much that for common tasks an [email protected] is as fast as an [email protected]

Actually they may be ok, but I wouldn't say excellent. They've recently removed the studio 1747 i7 from sale as it could never acheive full processor usage, and couldn't cope with blu-ray drives or hi def screens .. that plus a large number of people are reporting the processor fails on wake (google "dell studio 1747 beep")..That said the 15 i3 might be somewhat better, so not voted cold, but I'd stay away.

So is this better than a Sony Vaio NW20SF or the EF version? Im looking to buy either of them but if the dell is better will get that
#20
Hi there, I have just had a Toshiba laptop with the i3 Core in it. I used to have the P8600 which is a 2.4Ghz Centrino 2 Duo, thats a fast processor, and the i3 seems to be just as good.

Boot times are slightly longer, but once it gets going, it does the job fine.

Yes.
#22
Thanks for the advice, just ordered one
#23
shouldnt the deal say £475, as I just ordered one and after entering the voucher I got it at £475 and a few pennies. Voted hot by the way, as this is much better than the £429.99 posted a few weeks back (which I ordered, but now cancelled to get this one!)
#25


I am trying to decide between to two, is the i5 that much better to justify the slower HD and £50+ (including quidco) extra?
#26
i reckon this is still the best sub 500 laptop deal around. I cancelled my £429.99 one from a few weeks ago and after spending £45 more, i got better processer, faster hdd, and faster ram! And I get it tomorrow! :D
