looks like a pretty sweet laptop! can't wait for the quadcores to become mainstream!
#2
i have quad core and reeally its not that much better if yoiu can wait until windows 7 comes out and not just as a free upgrade as they will be making them to the right spec
#3
I have to say guys, that for this spec, it it a HOT price.

The P8600 is part of the new architecture processors and it's pretty awesome.

Good post.

Now £692.54 as naughty old Dell just raised the price by £20
#5
These are much better built than the Inspirons. I wouldn't touch an Inspiron but the current Studios are very nice. Amazing spec for a very reasonable price :thumbsup:
#6
Just £10 extra to upgrade to a 9 cell battery.

Imagine how heavy it is :p

It also has less RAM, half the HDD capacity and is 1" smaller in the screen department! Obviously personal preference, but in my opinion the Dell looks a hell of a lot better, too!

I have a HP laptop and a dell.

Had both for a similiar amount of time. The dell laptop has already lost 2 buttons. They just fell off. Its pretty rediculous.

A Studio, like the one here, or a crappy Inspiron? They're definitely not the same thing. Studios have much better build quality.

Sorry i think it was an inspiron. But it has put me off dell a little.

When i first bought it and got it home the whole keyboard layout was odd and i couldnt touch type with it. I got an email 4 weeks later telling me that they had shipped out all the laptops with the wrong keyboard. Had to wait another 2 weeks and a Dell Engineer came around with the correct keyboard.

Another reason why i would avoid dell but that just me.
#16
Great find - just ordered this. I am so glad I waited as I almost ordered the Inspiron that was found earlier this morning (£474). Happy to pay the extra for this spec.

Heat and rep added.
#17
Excellent deal. Pitty I bought a lesser reconidtioned laptop two days ago for a very similar price! :(

Dell deals seem very good recently!

I repair laptops and I get Inspirons in all the time - keyboard swaps and screen hinge replacements being the most common. I don't blame you for being put off! After all, the majority of people will go for an Inspiron.

The Studios are really nice though.

Also processor is extremely fast for a mainstream laptop, one of the fastest mainstream processors, only found on high end laptops. So this excellent for anybody who carries out CPU intensive tasks.

I have this processor in my Samsung laptop. Its ok, nothing to write home about!

Very stable though I must admit, but programs like photoshop elements hang for about 10 seconds before loading.

Agreed, even though Dell's aren't perfect they're a damn site better than Acer's (imho).

I've got the non-energy efficient version of this processor, so if it's taking 10 seconds to load photoshop elements I can tell you it's likely something else is wrong!

While not a top of the range processor, it is a good bit better than most of the mainstream stuff.

Until you need aftersales service .... then you are in trouble ;)
[mod]#25
Probably set to AVirus scan all exe's before loading, that will give that sort of delay
#26
A good price even if that 6GB of ram is overkill, it's also DDR2, In my opinion be worth spending the extra £70 and getting a studio xps, even if it does have the slower P7350, the 4GB of DDR3 ram and the much better GPU is more than worth the £70 even if you do lose a bit of storage space and processor speed.

Only if you play games, which is something a lot of people buying laptops aren't looking to do.

Have gone through the whole order process but cannot see how many usb ports there are - any help folks?

Many thanks. Rep. Ordered. :thumbsup:

Here is a link to the tech specs rather than a link to the 1st stage in the purchase procedure.

Top deal. Have been waiting for something like this to come along.

Had to order the Blu-ray for an additional £60 but still an excellent price.

Cheers.

Colour choice is in the Select: COLORS, PATTERNS, & ARTIST DESIGNS section. Look down the list until you see: Ruby Red with Microsatin Finish add £0.00

A very nice spec, apart from the 256 dedicated graphics. I would expect atleast twice that on a machine of this spec.

i bought my acer 8920 from costco last year and evn that has 512MB nVidia graphics and was a similar price. If the graphics was the same as my Acer then I would have considered it, but instead I will go to Costco again and see what they have.

To be fair, the 1x 4gb DDR2 module would be worth around £100, so if it is overkill for anyone - you'd be able to sell that module for around that price

Thanks to OP for this, and input of others, been waiting a while for a decent bargain like this. .

Anyone know how long they take to arrive on average?
#39
I'm thinking about snapping this up - but it's slightly out of my price range if I factor in the cost of a three year warranty (to cover my university stint). How reliable are these machines? Will I need a three year if I look after it well? I know there is a 1 year warranty, but my gut feeling tells me I will kick myself for not getting a warranty - especially as it is a dell.

Ordered 4 year in home (incl. evenings and Saturdays) warranty for the price of three (£139), 9 cell battery (£10) and face recognition software (£20) and after 5% discount it came to £843.61. Very pleased with the deal, spec and 4 yr warranty / peace of mind. Hope that helps. Scorcio Deal.
