I don't recall the outcome of these deliberations in the past : but I think if you buy from the BUSINESS part of their website you are foregoing your Distance Selling Regulations cover - ie do NOT have 7 working days from receipt within which to notify Dell that you have changed your mind once you've had the chance to examine the goods and see what the keyboard is like etc.

You are right about this difference - but if you were to buy through the home site it would cost £60 more (no free delivery). I doubt that there is much risk of disappointment with this model (having had experience of its predecessor...)

Would have preferred the Vostro 1400 that MikeT emasu posted earlier but that is now gone. This a a good replacement deal. works out the £351 price as long as you upgrade to 299 ex VAT. I would go for Bluetooth upgrade which is bang on £15.

Don't know whether to get this or the refurb advent AMD for £230

You're right this has been discussed a few times in the past, and it would seem that Dell will still honour (although I'm pretty sure technically they don't have to) a 7 day cooling off period for items purchased through the Business site as long as you state during the purchase that it is for HOME use. This has been confirmed by the information MikeT has found (correct me if I'm wrong Mike) and also on a personal note I've spoken to Dell shortly after purchasing a Vostro 1000 (a few months back) and they agreed they would collect the item if I was unhappy with it, paying for the return carriage and would give me a refund in full within the 7 days period.

If anyone is unsure it's worth a call to Dell to confirm for yourself before purchase.

As for the deal it looks brilliant. A decent (Santa Rosa) spec (leave the hdd at 80GB in and buy a new 250GB hdd for little more than the upgrade price) the hdd will slot straight in. For £351 seems enough to tempt me away from the Vostro 1700 I've been leaning towards.

Be advised Dell are quoting a 2 week delivery delay for the 1500s tho, but still worth the wait.

A shame that it hasn't played better - still seems a better option than more popular alternatives. It went heavily blue through anti Dell voting to start with and never fully recovered...

I've seen and used the 1700 - unless you have a particular requirement the 1500 series seems a better buy. There is an overhead to drive the larger screen and I much preferred the usability of the 15.4".

I'm pretty shocked this isn't getting better hot votes Bertt.

I hear what you're saying about the 1700, the unit I go for would, in reality, be used pretty much as a desktop supplement to my home system so while I'm tempted by the large screen and numpad etc this 1510 combined with a 250GB Fujitsu sata drive (£59) from ebay would give me a seriously nice specc'd maching for just a few quid over £400 and I have to admit the 15.4 size is pretty much perfect for a notebook.
