Dell Vostro 1710 - 1.8GHz C2D, 2GB, 250GB, dedicated 8600gs graphics - £390 delivered £380.00

With the release of the 1720 (which, in short, has better graphics, a slightly faster CPU, a faster harddrive and is around 120g lighter), Dell is clearing out the range of 1710s. For £380, you get:

Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz
2GB RAM
256MB 8600M GS video card (which isn't too bad for videogames)
250GB harddisk
DVDRW Dual Layer drive
17" screen, 1440*900 resolution

This system would've set you back some £600 last week. Snap it up, asap, because I reckon it's a cracking deal. You'll struggle to find a faster CPU in a laptop at this price, nevermind dedicated a 8600M GS GPU as well. There may be vouchers for this too. Buy via TopCashBack to claim back 4%, or thereabouts, of the pre-VAT price.

I own one myself, and recommend it without hesitation.

Very good deal imo

Just an alert note for those who don't realise - one of the reasons for the excellent price : the purchase is from Dell's Small & Medium Business site so wouldn't have the usual "consumer" Distance Selling Regulation protections that apply to personal/non-trade purchasers - eg 7 working days from delivery to change your mind.

One query I'd add re spec : the 17" display may well consume quite a bit more power (ie shorter battery life) but not give that much higher pixel resolution over 15.n". (Have been looking out for deals as need a laptop for university student.)

Regarding the DSR thing, a trick I'd recommend is that of ordering by phone, specifying during the call that you're a home user. It's something I did when I bought my system, just as a little legal cover just in case. TCB + phone ordering is sort-of possible - just tell the agent that you can buy it through TopCashBack (or through Quidco, if you're the sort), and either he can deduct the amount (£15.20) or you'll just order online and buy it that way. Worked for me.

About battery life, the 1710 should give you around 3 hours on a full charge initially. My system, running with a 2.4GHz C2D and two harddrives, lasts about 2 hours on a full charge, although it's also nearly a year old, and the battery is starting to feel it.

I don't think Dell stock the 1510 Vostro laptops anymore !

Yep, right enough. I had a look after posting this, and didn't see the Edit link for the post. Changed it now though.

This is the Dell e-value code for the Dell 1710 that comes out at £390

UKBSDONL-N0517105

The above code only seems to work on SOME Dell sites like this one
http://www1.euro.dell.com/uk/en/business/Laptops/vostronb_1710/pd.aspx?refid=vostronb_1710&s=bsd&cs=ukbsdt1

Note it does not have HDMI out.

>This system would've set you back some £600 last week

Sounds a bit high

Is the 8600M GS one of the 8400/8600 nvidia chips affected by the very high failure rates?

Yes but nvidea cover the chip for 3 years so you can send it back to dell and get it repaired if it does fail.


The only problem you may end up with is that Dell is/has ditched nvidea and is expected to go ATI exclusive on its next generation machines.

Combine the £80 clearance discount with the £70 that the 8600M GS normally adds to the price, and it's some £172 difference between this week and last week, adding on VAT. £550. There's also a Collect & Return warranty instead of a Next Business Day as standard this week, which further sinks the clearance price.

I don't get why this is such a cold deal. Can anyone fine a 17" Core2Duo laptop with dedicated graphics for less?

It comes to £458.85 with the upgrades below . This has to be a hot deal. Where can you buy a laptop cheaper than this at this spec. Voted hot. Thanks OP
