Very good price for a desktop replacement. It may be £50 more than the vostro 1000 deal, but comes with a slightly better processor and more screen space for those who may not want the portability. Please add the itrms excellently found by twinkle (Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 and the Kensington Ci 25m Notebook Optical Mouse) to achieve this price. This was posted by another user before but is now over £40 cheaper and the deal is slightly different. Please take it all the way to the basket for final pricing!!

Was gonna moan that I couldn't get it below £376, then I took it all the way and it was indeed £316.08 :)

Nice one

Good deal, but memory is low and expensive!
The spec is for 1GB RAM in 2X 512MB, if you opt for a single 1GB module (for a later upgrade), that's an extra £80 :w00t::w00t:
Machine really requires 2GB memory. Either fork out the extra to bring it up to 2GB or purchase after market compatible memory modules (cheaper option). :thumbsup:

I'm thinking about this (as the other recent deal lacks a graphics card) and, according to a recent request, this:

http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_11&products_id=103499

is a decent price for 2 gb laptop memory. How difficult is the physical upgrade?
#4
Wow, IMHO that is hot. Quite how selecting the extras drives the price well down seems to be a mistake - be quick!

Look a bit closer, for an extra £47 you can have 2Gb of memory:

1024MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x512] [Included in Price]


1024 MB 667 MHz Single Channel DDR2 SDRAM (1x 1024MB) [add £82.25 or £2/month1]


2048MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM (2x1024) [add £47.00 or £1/month1]
Doubles the pipelines available to the memory controller and allows more information to be recalled from single-channel memory


3072MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM (1x1024 + 1x2048 MB) [add £105.75 or £2/month1]


4096MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x2048] [add £188.00 or £4/month1]

This quote is brilliant. If you'd looked at how much extra it is for 2gb it would have saved you two minutes of typing.

This deal should be changed to £363 with 2gb RAM because that's a much better deal. 2gb is essential to run Vista.

Anyone know whether it will fit am very temped to order but looking at cheapest way of getting 2gb
banned#13
Tried a 1.4 with 2gd ram and it runs a bit slow. Takes ages to boot up with nothing installed but the base (vista) OS. Possibly the hardware slowing it down but i'd rather wait/ go for a deal on a 2ghz+ model. (the CPU upgrade on this is expensive)
#14
Not a bad deal but ive gone for the dell vostro 1000 deal, ive used a 17" laptop before and found it just too big.
#15
anyone know how a core2duo 1.4ghz (Vostro 1700) compare to a dual core 1.9ghz (Vostro 1000)?

Bin the vista - sell the sicker - and shove ubuntu on it and the memory wont be a problem, and it will run both better and faster - as long as you dont want to play windows games.

Actually I'd be happier if I could get it with XP. I wasn't going to move any of my household PCs to Vista unless an actual need arose (and I don't see that happening) and catch the next windows version when it comes down the pike in 2009-2010.

That's the strategy im planning to use as well. :D

The fact Vista was released last year and the new version of Windows (Windows 7, if I can remember correctly) is scheduled for release in 2009, I think this alone highlights one of the many problems/failings of Vista.
#21
I just wanted to add, I asked a question on a previous laptop deal regarding upgrading the wireless card to the N version. The answer was, that unless you have an N enabled router, then it would not provide any benefit.

For one reason and another (don't ask:?) I have three Dell Vostro's on my desk at work. Two have the ordinary wireless card and one has the N version which was about a £35 upgrade if I remember.

Both ordinary ones are able to see the works wireless system but regularly fail to connect and are unable to remain connected for more than a minute or two. Signal strength is showing on both at about 10%.

The N version shows 40% and maintains a stable connection all day.:-D.

The router is a NON N version Netgear.

Hope this helps someone.

Very very easy, it will be one of the dedicated panels on the back you unscrew, and slot in. Arguably easier than putting RAM into a normal PC.

I've just looked into this deal as i was thinking of getting the Vostro 1000.
By selecting 2048MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM (2x1024) [add £47.00 or £1/month1] and also selecting "Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 and the Kensington Ci 25m Notebook Optical Mouse" as Emasu posted I took this through to check out for £339.58!!! inc shipping.
Seems a really good deal!

That's because you haven't selected the processor upgrade, meaning you're stuck with a Celeron, which is - quite frankly - awful.

Anyone looking for a reasonably top spec 1700 Vostro can configure this ecode to 2Ghz C2D, 2gig, 120Gb, 256meg graphics with the freebee's for £574 which is less than any of the other vostro 1700 ecodes.

Well, you can upgrade to a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo, 3GB RAM, 160GB HDD and Vista Home Premium for £480.58 delivered plus around £20 Quidco cashback:

Use e-value code N0217005, upgrade the processor to 2GHz, and downgrade the warranty to 1 year to get this price. You need to take this all the way to the final basket to see all the discounts applied.


The code doesn't work for me - I get an error code? :?:

The code works fine, click through from the first post "got to deal" to test it.

What isnt working 100% today is the checkout, it errors when trying to add a config to your basket on occasions, just keep trying or try another browser.

£ 347.82 is my price... did I do sth wrong?
#30
The basic one goes through at £347.82

Following the upgraded listing it comes out at a few quid off £400... Am I doing something wrong?
#31
TinoP & Stumungous - the webcam & mouse were never 'free' - it was an obvious mistake which they've now corrected.
#32
Trouble is the free delivery disapears when you remove the "free" items! Any codes or workarounds?
[mod] 1 Like #33
You can upgrade the cpu to 1.4Ghz and the ram to 2Ghz and get the price to £363 but now the "free" items have been corrected thats messed up the lower pricing.

Or you could add the camera which comes to 336. Mike - is this machine better than the vostro 1000?

Better is subjective, this is a desktop replacement really, the V1000 is a portable, cpu in this may be slightly better, but you really need to figure what your going to be doing, if its out and about the V1000 is prob a better bet.

Was seriously considering this for a good laptop that could handle games as well.

Does ayone kwow what the maximum RAM capability of these are. If I were to buy another 2 GB off the web would I be albe to install it, I can not find any info reference expansion slots and stuff.

It appears that all of the voucher codes have dried up and the price of the machines has come down slightly, I think I might wait it out and see if a nice £100 off vouchers pops up some time this month.

Wilf2go, the 3Gb one is definitely better value. What you're not seeing is that the '3Gb one' you posted also has 40Gb additional hard disk space & a 2mp camera, which this doesn't have.

If you were to increase the one posted here to the spec of the '3Gb one' it would be £468.83!
