Try using the coupon as stated in the OP :p

is this a really good deal, was thinking of getting one was previously looking at the acer £399 one in Comet
#5
If you're not bothered about the web cam and the ATI graphics card, you're probably better off getting this Inspiron 15" for £399. Add an extra £15 for a 6 Cell battery.

you;re also losing the HDMI port with the inspiron (which will be a big consideration for many ppl wanting to connect their laptops to a hd tv)

The 512MB Ati 4570, which will not play the very latest games on high, is a much better than the integrated graphics offered in the inspiron.
#7
I would steer well, well clear of any Acer, they have an abysmal reputation for lasting longer than 12 months.

Get a Tosh, HP or Dell would be my advice.
#8
whatsThePoint
Dells are nothing special and operate an overprice and have a sell policy (has there been a day without a sell?)
Plus most people won't need this spec as its not good enough the for latest games and dear for a basic laptop
If the Acer is similar/better spec and does what you want, get that instead but like the Dell it's not the most reliable brand

Dell used to be biggest PC supplier but dropped behind HP and look to be 3rd behind Acer soon if not already, The fact they are losing sells while others get better speaks for itself


It's not particularly basic when you look at the overall spec, and I don't know what the obsession with games is - you're not going to expect to be playing the latest games on a £450 notebook anyway. It's certainly more than fast enough for general usage, and even more demanding tasks when necessary. Add the fact that you're getting a free choice of colour and a free mobile broadband card, it's a good deal.

I'd definitely recommend this (or any Dell) over any Acer. Acer are far less reliable and generally have many more issues with build quality than Dell do.

It's not entirely that they're losing sales either, Acer made huge leaps forward with their netbook range.

And it's "sales", not "sells".

whatsThePoint

There are other reports if you look for them but i've never seen Dell rated above average


There's plenty of positive reviews out there on reputable websites of Dell systems. Many more positive than negative in fact, in my experience.

I bought this exact same laptop from the Outlet 2 weeks ago, I'm really impressed with it - I can definately vouch for it.

This is my personal feeling as well never had a decent product from Acer:) saying that my dell inspiron motherboard got damaged somehow but luckily with 50 days warranty left, actually got it back today =]
#11
Got a Dell, had Dell laptops for years never had problems at all....

As for the deal, to me its not really that great considering on outlet a few months back got similar spec for under £400
#12
I'm on my dell studio, its not as good a spec as that one though but I have no complaints, I love mine!
#13
Another good dell deal, keep them coming mike!
#14
whatsThePoint
I meant a basic laptop would do the same as this far cheaper and this one is limited if you want to do more, Free colour is a con, how does 1 colour cost more than doing it black

I said Acer was worst than Dell so whats your point?

Yes it is their fault as they at the RRP are well overpriced and i expect people are fed up with seeing something they have paid £650+ for being offered the next day for £455

If i wanted a lesson in spelling i'd go to someone worth listening to

Care to list some sites which list Dell as being more reliable than Sony or Toshiba?


Of course a basic notebook will be cheaper - that much is obvious - but if you don't want a basic one then this is a decent deal. Seems fairly straightforward to me. As for the colour choice, all companies do the same thing so branding it a "con" is pointless. People will pay more for things if it makes it a bit more personal and appealing to them, so the fact you can choose from some rather nice colours for free is a bonus really.

As for my "point", that would be that Acer are generally regarded as being very unreliable and having inferior build quality to the competition. Seemed fairly clear the first time I said it though.

Not sure why you're asking me about Sony or Toshiba as I haven't mentioned those brands, nor is one particularly likely to get a similarly-specced VAIO for the same price as a Dell anyway. All I said is that Dell systems tend to receive very favourable reviews on highly-respected hardware and review websites.
#15
I had an Acer Aspire laptop for 5 years, recently put Windows 7 on it and it ran without problems whatsoever and at a decent speed. I have now got a Dell Studio XPS 16 and this is also nice and I'm very impressed by it. In essence, I like both!
#16
Great Deal thanks alot :)
#17
Heh. I have no axe to grind or inside link with a manufacturer, but got my eye out for a new laptop - my Dell Inspiron 6400 has done thousands of hours hard labour for 3.5 years. All i've done is replace the HD in it, which considering it's been to the office and back daily, and several far flung countries, ain't bad going.

But what I do find mildly amusing is that every single Dell posting I've seen for months on here has "whatsThePoint" bleating on about how c7ap Dell are without anything to back it up with (some links to terrible reviews for specific hardware being discussed would be a start), and seemingly just trying to wind people up. Most people have heard it all before and are capable of reading reviews etc, so if you've nothing constructive to add to a specific deal, please, please just naff off.

Whinge over.

For my two penneth, I've had Dell's, HPs, Compaqs, Tosh and never had a problem with any of them over and above wear and tear. All of their support has been as good/bad/outsourced to foreign lands as each other. Never touched an Acer or other brand, but thats not to say they're not worth a try. I always need to rely on the hardware tho, so stump up the cash for a brand...

This looks like a pretty good deal tho - 4gig mem and 512mb video that's non intel bog standard chipset, for sub 500 quid is pretty good going. If only I'd done my accounts to see if I can afford it...
#18
Let me add my opinion to this debate...

I agree that dell has a good reputation for reliability, I cannot list a site that says so, but I have asked many people who have used dell,hp,acer and sony laptops and dell users had the least complaints. 2 of my friends who had acers had issues with the mother board and had to send them back. My opinion of hp is very bad, many people had motherboard issues and HDD failures.. I have been using a TX 1000 for the last 3 years and its been horrible. IT had motherboard issues, Over heating issues and worst of all, there service was horrible.

I have been in the market for a laptop for a few weeks now, My options were this dell, or a dell 14" vs a Sony Vaio NS series.... Since my budget allowed it, I considered the MacBook Pro aswell, but decided that its not worth the extra $$$ as I need a basic machine to use at home...

I think this is a great deal for the price...
#19
voted cold 'cos of Dells ****** INDIAN Customer Service. I bought a laptop 3 weeks ago and within 4 days it developed a fault. Within my rights I have 7 days to get a refund and they said they will collect it. 3 weeks later and speaking to many INCOMPENTANT INDIANS they still are disputing.

Don't buy Dell unless you like ****** customer service.
#20
I totally agree regarding the online chat service, the DELL US Site chat is very good, but some how the UK one goes to India and they have no idea what they are talking about.

I just checked the same configuration in the US site and it`ll come to over 1000$ !!!!

And as for sites proving the above average quality of dell, I doubt that its possible to find one and largely irrelevant as the only way to get a unbiased opinion about a brand is to ask a few people who have been using it for a long time.

Please let me know what this - Outlet that many people have been talking about... do they give the same guarantee?

As for my "point", that would be that Acer are generally regarded as being very unreliable and having inferior build quality to the competition.

I'd have to agree completely about Acer, I've owned three of their laptops and had trouble of some kind with every one. By far the worst was the last, an Aspire 1520. The graphics card on that (a GeForce 5700) burned out less than a year after purchase and getting warranty service out of Acer was like pulling teeth. When the laptop came back they'd replaced the 5700 with a much inferior 5200 card and completely refused to listen when I complained, apparently in their world the 5700 and 5200 are 'functionally equivalent' and that's the end of it. I eventually sold the thing. It was a hot, noisey piece of garbage anyway. Replaced it with a Dell Inspiron, which was faster, quieter, cooler running and much more solidly build.

Not saying Dell are perfect or anything, but Acer are terrible. Even just looking at some of their laptops in the supermarket the other week I was struck by how flimsy and cheap they feel compared to the Dell Studio 17 I bought recently. No matter how low the price I don't see how they could be counted as good value.

$1000 will be a sell price next week, it will sucker you into thinking wow what a great saving

I found one and listed it earlier

Same guarantee that if its one of the 1 in 5 that goes wrong they won't want to know

What's a 'sell price'?
#26
The real question is, will there be better deals closer to Christmas? I'm really tempted by this, but had intended to wait for Christmas deals (and just get one that comes loaded with Win 7).
#27
whatsThePoint
I'd have Compaq over Dell or Acer any day

Thanks. Looked to be adequate spec for our needs and priced at £370.

Last time I was in the market (several years ago) there was a big price advantage to Dell if you were prepared to wait for build and delivery and a big premium for the premium brands. From what I can see now that gap has disappeared.
#28
whatsThePoint
Wow another spelling mistake, have a big pat on the back for being so an4l

Didn't look like a typo, just didn't understand what may be an important point.
#29
Hmmm the usual Acer bashing going on then, even though it a post for a Dell.. :whistling:

My expensive Dell gaming laptop gave me electric shocks, and the gpu failed after 14 months, with light use.. My Acer 5920g has had thousands of hours use and still runs like new after 18 months.. everybody has differant experiances with differant companies and Acer are no where near as badly built these days.. though their cs does suck..

Can't believe this comment, and find it quite distasteful that so many people are so hard on Indian call centres.
Have you ever got through to a British call centre? Apart from the accent occasionally being more understandable (although rarely as mellifluous), the attitude you get generally stinks. I've worked in enough to know they are staffed by bored young people who are generally aggrevied about having 10 minutes a day toilet break time and a petty David Brent-esque manager who feels that in order to be seen to be busy they have to make a pain in the R's of themselves.
Indian call centres, Dell's in particular, are generally staffed by people who are hugely grateful for such a job, always incredibly polite, and in my several dealings with them, really keen to help. In fact my only (non) gripe is that they are too keen to make sure that you are satisfied.

Example - The insulation on the mains wire of our laptop started to come away revealing the wires underneath. It wasn't dangerous as they were still insulated, but I called up to get something done anyway.
Indian call centre operative patiently listened to the problem, offered a new part in the post immediately without demanding the old one is collected, looked at, lost, etc etc. Perfect English, perfectly polite. Asked repeatedly if this was satisfactory. This was at 5PM. Got the part following morning. And a phone call to check if everything was okay with the call. Then another phone call following day to check the part had arrived.

Had this sort of service numerous times from Dell. They are the best company I have ever dealt with. Long live their Indian call centre!
banned#31
I would prefer to get an insprion as the C2D processor is much better for than this but your also getting it for less. If you want graphics for gaming go for this. I will wait a while longer for prices to drop or perhaps they maybe a misprice soon...............
#32
Whats the point... really.. whats your point? All Dells are crap and Acer is great.?.. all dell deals are misleading and we all should keep waiting for the deals to get better?
Most of us use this site to find a good deal, not to kill time making useless arguments.. so why are you wasting your time..

I was thinking of waiting till the Christmas sales come on to replace my Over heating hp TX1000... but do you guys think that one of the last few Vista machines (this or any other) will give a better deal. I am in huge dilemma-

Do I get this//Do I wait for Win 7 To arrive/Do I wait for the Christmas sales....

Bought one dell studio 17'' and was delivered with the optical unit broken.Called them and they offered me to repair it (not to replace it)even if it was only got out of the box,so i asked for my money back and bought an acer which was cheaper and with better specs and had no problems at all.
So cold for me
