Do you think you'll get to 2500 and stellar rep for this post? Hope so!

You really need to get the clicky to take you to the deal!

We're sorry, but we are unable to process your request to configure the identified product.

Go to deal link now fixed.

The merchant was set as Dell when it should have been Dell small business. Not the op's fault, will try to get it fixed for future deals.

Good man. Can't rep you I've repped you before.

So, after a tweak, an i7 pc with a Blu-Ray writer comes out at < £500 :o

Nice!

Crikey, well spotted if true! (is it a burner?)

how does this cpu compare with the amd 965? i was thinking of mainly 4 games and general power.
#14
Cheap it is, but a terrible configuration. The 800 series should have fast dual channel RAM, a 64bit OS, plus a decent graphics card.

That would be a bit more expensive, but I think worth it.

Think you can get Win7 pro 64 bit (just select it, should be free)
dual channel ram = buy another 2gb and 1gb stick and then you got 2+2 1+1 running in DUal channel
and graphics card is pretty good if you don't play games, will have no issues at all playing HD movies etc.

So should we be changing the OS to Windows 7 Professional 64bit, (no extra cost)

Pretty good deal, though for the set up the GFX card is pretty low. Fairly sure it'll be the bottleneck compared to the relatively beasty CPU.

Just as a rough guide, average cost:
Core i7 860: £229
3Gb DDR3 RAM: £73
500GB HD: £50
512MB ATI Radeon HD 4350: £28
Windows 7:£90

Total:£470

^ And that's without case, mouse, keyboard, etc. So yes good deal if these components are what you're after, though again - the GFX card is a little lacking.

Remember people, when buying from small and medium business side of the site, your buying this as a business customer, NOT a consumer. No god given right DSR (Distance Selling Regulations) ala right to return within 7days for starters. Not knocking the deal and even as a business customer it has to live upto the basic principles of the Sale of Goods Act. Just go into it with your eyes open and aware as a business customer you might not be cuddled like your used to when buying as Joe Public.

Cracking price, heated!

So If I place an order and cancel within 24 hours will they still try to deliver or accept my cancellation?

This deal is not as good as the last deal as you are not getting as much bang for your admittedly £1 cheaper buck.....

It's a cheap ready to use business machine. I think the graphics card (HD capable, 7.1 sound support and 3 video outputs) is more than adequate. If you expect a better card, visit Alienware site, not Dell business ;-)

Looks the same to me? Care to detail the diffs?

You'd have to have a read of Dells terms or ask them, as in all honesty I don't know the ins and outs of the business side of the law and what policies Dell might have. Can't see why they wouldnt let you cancel an order before its completed (dispatched) tho? Theres no 24hr thing as a consumer, its pretty much all about the DSR. You no likey, you can send it back for a full refund. As a business customer its a case of tough unless Dell feel like it.

Just figured it was worth mentioning as know lots of people are accustomed to taking a punt on stuff safe in the knowledge they can always send it back.

It's just the way the discounts work. Previously it was £90 off so to get the £940 ish price which then included £20 or so worth of upgrades. The same £940 ish price in the current case does not include any upgrades and is simply the plain vanilla config... so therefore not as good... but still pretty good (there's about £20 or so in it)

I managed to resist the other one as well. This is like torture!

OK, forgot that the previous deal needed the 19-in-1 card reader to make the discount.

Thanks - have some REP

Good deal. Voted Hot.

I changed the RAM to 4GB (2x2GB 1333mhz) - boosted the price of the computer beyond the previous requirement. With this offer it would cost me an extra £20 to get the same spec - but if I kept the RAM the same, it would be (roughly) the same price.

I missed the previous deal by a matter of minutes (didn't realise it was midnight of the deal end date!) - not this time.

Heat added. Thanks!

Tricky.

If you buy a monitor from the monitor store, you can get 20% off (instead of the 15% from the PC deal).

Meanwhile if you went for the bundle 430(evalue code: UKBSDONL-D034304), you get an extra £20 off (£90 discount instead of £70) & you get the 15% from the pc. (Note, the min. RAM is 4GB on this package).

Overall, I've never been a fan of dell monitors and always used a samsung etc. , so I'm going to look elsewhere (amazon, play, etc).

HTH

Ordered. Have some heat and thanks for the post........I think! ;-) The wife is going to kill me!

Bought one right before the other deal ran out. Wondering now which graphics card to buy for it. I was going to go for the 5670, but I'm thinking now that you'd actually be ok with a 5750 as it's a good PSU and Dell under-rate them, so it's really more than a 350w.

Good luck with your first post.

Comparing like per like with mine, its works out £23.97 more if card reader and memory included, but as you say if you take the base spec it is cheaper.

Good find and I have added heat and rep.

Tip: You can edit you main deal with good points from the threads. I did this quite a bit during the lifetime of my deal. for example link to manual and specs, suitable graphic cards etc. Stuff can get lost in the many threads but putting it in the deal means it is always at the top of any page.

Feel free to use any good points from my deal.

Roll on 2502 degrees :)

This is not as cheap as the offer that was on here that expired yesterday which was very good. I got it at the last minute and I am unsure whether my Topcashback will go through but I am going to complain to Dell about it as they messed up my order.

If I've got my sums right, this deal only works out better if the cost before VAT is over £600. i.e 15% of £600 = £90.

Nonetheless, this is still a good deal.
