The main differences between this and the recently posted £399 Dell Inspiron 15 are:

TFT – 1920x1200 v 1366x768
Graphics – Radeon HD 3450 256MB v Intel GMA 4500MHD
CPU – Core 2 Duo T6400 2GHz 2MB cache v Pentium Dual-Core T4200 2GHz 1MB cache
HDD – 320GB v 250GB
WiFi - Intel 5100 (802.11 a/b/g/n) v Dell 1397 (802.11 b/g)
Connectors – 4 USB, HDMI, VGA, 1Gb LAN, Firewire v 3 USB, VGA, 100Mb LAN

If your eyes are good enough to appreciate such a high resolution panel on a small laptop then this seems a bargain.
#4
Good enough for me :)


Its only 60£ more for a superbly better graphics carad, better CPU, better hard drive, better wifi, more connectors, better resolution......

Got to be worth a punt (LOLOLOL first time using this ass word)

Can a put a blu-ray drive from another dell in this pc? (inspirion 1525)

Do you mean with the same screen resolution?

very nice laptop

Is the graphics card a good one for a kid to play a few games? like rollercoaster tycoon..LOL?
#10
I've replied to your question in the other Dell thread, but just incase you don't see it;

Yes, the graphics card will be much better for playing games on the one you linked to. An all round better spec for only £43 more.


Basically the one in this thread is better and will handle rollercoaster tycoon nicely :)
#11
Has anybody seen this resolution on a 15 inch screen? I would imagine that text is so tiny is could be unreadable.

Also, does anyone know what you cannot add 64-bit Vista to any Dell Studio laptop. As this comes with 4GB+ memory then surely this will be needed.

super!
Many thanks!!
the screen resolution- annoying would it be? and can it be changed like on desktops?
And my son asks "what is the RAM?"
#13
The screen resolution can be lowered to something like 1680x1050 which would be easier to read text. You could also up it to full res when you want to watch HD content :)

The ram is 2 x 2Gb PC6400 but doesn't mention what make or timings. It'll probably be something like Hynix, which I'm sure I've seen in Dells before. I assume that's what he means by "what is the ram"? :)

Great !

One more teeeny tiney thing, there is te option to change the wireless network connx for £0 to

from

Intel WiFi Link 5100 (802.11 a/b/g/n 1X2) 1/2 MiniCard [Included in Price]
should I? :) and if so/not; what is the difference?
thanky you all!

Good point. Why do laptop screens generally have such high resolutions for the size of screen? It makes everything tiny! Most people wouldn't have run that resolution on a 17" CRT. Am I missing something?
#18
yeah, it's got all the hardware spec capable playing BD, but NO BD drive included in the price.
#19
price showing as 499.99?

ignore me. forgot the 10% coupon.
#20
Great price for a decent spec like this. It's about time these guys had a high resolution panel :)
#21
Looks like a decent price, personally I would pay the £90 more and get the 2.4ghz C2D cpu though

Thanks very much- have finally bought a laptop!

Nonsense - my netbook is 1280 x 800 and that's 10", this is a lot larger and not that much more in terms of pixels (proportionately).

Would anybody else recommend doing this?

Is there a site for comparison?
#26
Looks a great deal to me. Would it be any good for modern games? Crysis is probably out of the question though :thinking:

Instead of doing it as an upgrade go for the next spec up (N0453504) which includes the faster processor as standard and is only £50 more than this one. That is the spec i am looking at buying but i am not sure which screen to go for and am also concerned about the lack of 64-bit vista with the memory problems.

Yes, I had a Dell Inspiron 8600 with a 15.4in 1920x1200 screen (I actually have a screen which has an even higher pixel density) and loved it as you get a decent amount of working space although many don't like it. Unlike XP though Vista has a properly scaled interface which should allow you to change the size of the interface to suit although I'd only recommend this resolution if it's something you definitely want.

Nice find. It’ll end up being an extra £45 with the 10% voucher and even less with Quidco which is cheap for a decent CPU upgrade like this – link to N0453504.

..am also concerned about the lack of 64-bit vista with the memory problems.

They automatically upgrade you to Vista x64 if you upgrade beyond 4GB of RAM but give no option to manually select it if you go for the base level 4GB RAM which is annoying. I suggest talking to a Dell sales rep to see if they can manually give this option although you may well loose some of the discount codes if you order on the phone and will definitely not have Quidco.
I’d be tempted to talk with them first to see if it’s possible and if it is place the order online via Quidco and then phone them after you’ve received the confirmation email to update to the 64 bit version. :thumbsup:

Some people prefer to have high resolutions to give a decent amount of working space with a limited physical size. My laptop screens have either been 15.4in 1920x1200 or 17in 1920x1200 for the last few years, I don't like using anything less as it's quite restrictive. My biggest complaint about the XPS M1330 which is a generally great little machine is the poor 1280x800 resolution - Sony offer an upgrade to 1600x900 on their equivalent Z series which I've been hoping for Dell to offer or the Z series to come down in price but neither has happened.

So is that a better deal?

If you actually need the extra CPU performance then I'd say yes; otherwsise you're paying for a feature that you don't need so it's hard to call it a good deal FOR YOU even if the price is good.
It depends on what you'll use the laptop for.

I would say NO...the 1525 is tray load , studio is slot load and AFAIK internal connections are different.
Also to change optical drive in studio you need to nearly disassemble the whole laptop...I know :whistling:

****, thats a real ******. My mum brought a 1525 with a damn blu-ray rewriter which she has no use for :| I would buy this and swap with her, but for the bubblegum pink..........


Hers is only a week or 2 old. Could I get dell to change or can I manually change myself?

That’s annoying. I’ve often upgraded CPUs on Dells and they are usually easy enough to do but with some you have to almost disassemble the whole system also. At least they have the Service Manuals online though. :thumbsup:

Also, does anyone know what you cannot add 64-bit Vista to any Dell Studio laptop. As this comes with 4GB+ memory then surely this will be needed.

Vista CD-Keys work on both 32-bit and 64-bit installs.
If you can download yourself a Vista 64-bit Home Premium Install disc, then you'll find the DELL CD-Key on the sticker underneath the laptop works just fine with it. If you can download yourself a specific DELL Vista 64-bit Home Premium disc, then you won't even need to enter the CD-Key - it'll self-activate.
