voted hot+++... thanks Mike T for another great find!!!
#2
nice one mike. hot indeed. im well tempted. does anyone know what the approx battery life is for each of the cell options?
#3
based on previous threads - "dells are quite good usually around 3hr for the small, 5 for the 6 cell and up to 7 for the 9 cell just browsing. DVD watching will reduce those figures"

hope this helps!!!

Yep i was thinkin about the upgrade to 6cell for an extra £11+
#4
does anyone know what type of sound card is on this
#5
Saw this yesterday, great spec and nice price.

I'm thinking about a laptop but does anyone think its worth holding off to closer to xmas for better deals?
#6
I can see that Dell decided to raise the price on evalue code N1010003
which yesterday was priced at £388 also and had a matching spec to N1010003a, but with the TL60 Chip.

Crafty gits...

:)

Ordered 5 of these yesterday with the TL60! glad I didn't wait till today now! Gone up by 50 quid each!
#8

Here is the link to the expired deal that was on for a couple of weeks. This is Dell in a nutshell for you. Personally I think this deal isn't very good and you should all wait for another week or two until they give you the TL60 processor for the same price. They did this with the Vostro 1700 a few weeks back. They just rotate the prices back and forth so right now it's the expensive time.

Cold deal when compared to what you'll get if you wait.

Cool, thanks for that. I read on another thread on here somethinga bout the 9 cell making the laptop more bulky, is that right? People suggest the 6 cell then?

it protrudes a little from the bottom (only by about 2mm though,which is smaller than the rubber feet), but does not stick out at the rear of the unit (contrary to what some people have said).


I have the 9 cell battery in the vostro 1000 from this thread

Will anyone leave the 3 year next day business support on? Or is it only for busineses?

Am just a bit worried that the laptop might break 18 months in, and if only the base warranty is selected, there'd be no cover?

You could buy with just the 1yr warranty then during the year if dell dont contact you to ask if you want to extend it (they usually do) then you can get a quote from them for extending it, usually its cheaper this way too.

Mine got delivered today from the last time this was posted on here - about 2 weeks ago. Setting it up now.

I got the 9 cell battery and the TL screen. Battery does not stick out at all.
#19
Dell actually have diagrams showing how the 9-cell pokes out - but I'm guessing that doesn't apply to all laptops.

That seems like a good price for that machine - makes you wonder what you'll get if you call them up :)
#20
BTW - this has Vista Business, which is supposed to be an XP Pro replacement for business use. It does not include the Media Center interface, though, which some people prefer. I believe Dell are fairly reluctant to repackage the Vostros with Home Premium, so you may have to plump for an Inspiron if you want that functionality.

What's the difference between the TL56 and the TL60?

My bets are that the TL60 will be available for the same price in a week or two if it already has. As I've already mention Dell do a couple of weeks with an amazing deal and then a couple of weeks with a not so good deal. The confusing thing at the moment is that the not so good deal is still very good compared to other laptops.

I have the 9 cell battery on the Vostro 1700 and it sticks out.
#27
Do Dell do any laptops with bult in webcams or can you get one added as an update?
#28
Price posted is including delivery but when I add it to my basket it charges me £60. Am I doing something wrong or is this deal no longer including delivery ?

The price in the first post is the price you will pay £387 delivered, dell sometimes get twisted and charge delivery of £60 instead of putting it into the units price and having free delivery. Makes no difference as your paying £387. Would be a real top bargain if they reduced it by another £60!

The Inspiron 1501 and Vostro 1000 notebooks dont have svideo out. The Inspiron 6400 and Vostro 1400, 1500 and 1700 do as do the other Inspiron notebooks but I cant point you to a bargain right now as Dell are being tight. Maybe by the weekend they will lower some prices for us.
#32
To be honest,

we got the 9 cell and picked the Truelife screen and paid the £387, even playing videos it does the job fine.
the truelife screen does make the screen look really silky and smooth.

the 9 cell is a DEF must as no doubt you wont always have it connected to the mains, this way you can sit in your bed or in the living room with ample power. Dont get a 6 cell as it wont be enough

overall at this price you cant go wrong, if this was in PC world you would certainly be paying over £500.

This has to be the best deal i have ever come acroos and i can only thank Emasu for the original thread, plus Mike for bringing this back on with a New Deal

Dont miss out on this one, the last time this was on at this price the Deal percentage hit the roof !

voted hot .....AGAIN !! lol

See post no 98 for picture of battery. The photo on Dells site is wrong for this model.

Received delivery today, Vostro 1000 TL60 ( Thanks Mike ) No sticky out batteries. Took off MacAfee 30 day trial ( no thanks !!! ), google toolbar and google desktop and am very happy with it, seems well put together ( sturdy )

Thanks Mike for pointing out these good dell deals, i know you don't work for dell ..... but they should pay you some commission !!!!!

I currently have a desktop PC with an AOL broadband connection but if I purchased one of these laptops, what is the easiest way to connect so that that i can go on the internet with the laptop and desktop at the same time incurring only one charge from AOL.

Do I have to network the laptop and desktop together or can i use some kind of router. WOuld the laptop come with the correct equipment or do I purchase these separately.
#37
get a router, AOL are giving them away free just now arent they?

oh.....why on earth would you want to go with AOL? one of the worst, we had AOL and it was appauling
#38
been with AOL for a few years and not had many problems apart from when we had the recent floods. Was going to try for the free AOL laptop offer but need to sign up with BT (currently with onetel/talk talk which is part of carphone warehouse - so not sure why need BT).

Didnt get a router from AOL just the modem but out of contract now so may have to sign up to one of their contracts to get a wireless router.

Other reason with AOL as heard alot of others are terrible especially talk talk and Orange :giggle:
#39
Awesome deal. I just got a Fujitsu Siemens li1718 though, similar specs but £419.99. It was better for me as it had better battery, better brand (for me) and I wanted the OS as Vista Premium.

I would have probably gone for the Vostro @ that price though.
#40
Seeing as im now on the lookout for another laptop... how does this machine compare to the recent HP machine for around £420 after cashback+quidco ??
