Please rate it on value for money, I know it is expensive but it is value!
I went to buy a Dell today and found that they have changed their studio 17 deals. On the front page they only have Core 2 Duo or Touch versions of the Studio 17 but under the code N0074908 is this laptop:
Intel® Core i7-720QM Mobile Processor (1.6GHz, turbo up to 2.8GHz, 6MB L3 Cache)
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English
4096MB 1333MHz Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM [2x2048]
1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 560v
500GB (7,200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive
Dell Wireless 1397 Mini Card (802.11 b/g)
Primary 9-cell 85 WHr Lithium Ion battery
2.0 Mega pixel Integrated Web Camera
17.3 High Definition+ (1600x900) LED with TL
I personally added the Bluetooth for £30. I think the reason for the price drop is the graphics have dropped from the ATI HD 5650 to the 560v but for a fast longlife laptop I'm very happy!
Don't forget, any students can get 6% off online and of course quidco/topcashback!
