Mike...... £499 or £551 ???

Is that an optional extra? In the OP it says £499 delivered - and includes OS

About time I upgraded my main PC!


Been such a long time since I posted a Dell I forgot to add vat etc to the £499 price ;-)

You get Win 7 32bit unless you select 64bit.

You forgot to add the coupon code for £30 off pre vat

If i would need computer,would be buying barebone bundle from Novatech.A lot cheaper and you build yourself more powerful computer for the same price. Dell is rubbish-nothing more.They offer these money off coupon codes every few weeks,so not a good deal for me,but for someone maybe it is...

Thats because the companys are using Dell and HP the most.(and get BIG discounts on large orders)

So put your spec together with a price and we might take you seriously - put your money where your mouth is so to speak

After a bit of advice as i am not up on laptops at all. For £695, is this a decent spec? Thanks.
#9
Thats a Studio 1749?
For a mid-range gaming laptop it's fine spec. I have the same spec laptop @ home and it plays all games I throw at it no problems. 3gb of ram seems a bit strange, mine came with 4gb and was that sorta price 6 months ago.

Sorry cut that bit off when pasting, it's a Toshiba Satellite Pro.

Very off-topic, but does anyone if it's possible to get a NAS drive with built in DVD player that can create iso's directly to the drives!? Then access these via a networked media player. Interested in going down the digital media route, but would need to upgrade my 10 year old mac to burn dvds at a decent rate, and want to cut out the middle man. Any suggestions? (sorry tried googling, but it's hard cause mentioning iso's brings back answers about how to read/play them. I need to make them first!)

That is not possible unfortunately, since it would usually need to be able to crack CSS to be of any use to your average user and no NAS firmware manufacturer would be brave enough to include something like that in their firmware.
#13
Thanks for the quick response!

To be honest, I thought as much. The stupid thing about that is, that it makes it easier to just download "free" encoded rips, when I actually only want access to my own (paid for) dvds being the good/honest person I am!

Absolutely spot on - and my biggest gripe against people who winge about Piracy. I'd happily purchase DVD's rather than waiting hours for them to download and worrying about whether it is what it's supposed to be and good quality if you could simply turn it into an AVI file. I don't want DVD's stacked up all over my house which would be the case if I didn't have a TB hard drive full of films!
#15
The deal looked great, until you realise you have to add VAT. Still not bad for an i7, though.

As for the barebones comment - rubbish. I always used to build my own PCs, but there really is no point now. Dell in particular offer some great deals. No matter where I source my components from - even the usually great ebuyer and Scan - I can't get close to a Dell config for price and performance.
#16
I'm after a new PC and like the idea of getting a Dell. I had been looking at the below link - not sure what people make to this deal, and if its better than the Dell - I'm not too high on my current PC's techs.

looks very good, this will give you a few years and the £100 you save can go towards future upgrades or another pc.

Hi guys, after having a go of my dads dell laptop I vowed to stay away from dell but this seems VERY cheap for an i7 system! and have a quick question...is this onboard graphics and would it be suitable for running photoshop cs5?

I have 2 spare graphics cards I could put in if this machine would allow it if that helps.
Also what would it be like for gaming? - mostly for photoshop is what I am interested in though.
Any help is appreciated, thanks all.

It's a rebranded G210 essentially, not very powerful but I imagine very replaceable.

As to the whole system with mid-end Sandy Bridge (S1155) coming out in Q4 I imagine we'll be seeing S1156 prices drop lower than this before too long.

how long are we talking? in the next month or two?
I have just picked specific parts myself on ebuyer and am actually thinking this deal isn't that hot now (if you can build yourself, otherwise it's great!)

I am just wondering, will it be good ram inside like corsair and things or will it be cheap versions?

I think if you want something that's cheap and works well, then yes pre-built PCs are the way to go. The only thing I don't like about Dell's desktops is that they "cripple" the BIOS to make sure no-one can overclock the machine. Sensible for their target audience I guess, but frustrating because the CPU is often one of the few things in a Dell desktop PC that's hard to upgrade.

I was speccing up a 6-core AMD self-build the other day minus any SSD/hard drives/optical drives/monitor (I have those already) and there's little change out of 500 quid at the moment. Mind you, you don't pay the Windows tax either (I run Linux)...
#22
Could someone please explain to me if this is a good deal or not. I am looking for a new pc that will be used mainly for work and internet use. Is this too much? Will it last? I have heard good things about dell
#23
Do Dell still make there system hard to upgrade, with non standard sizing of there cases and parts? so that you have to pay a arm and a leg to upgrade through them or hopefully just buy a new system from them.

also I see 3gb of ram, would I be able to put any 1gb ram in there to make it 4gb ram?
#24
I've bought several Dell deals posted here over the last two years, including the Vostro deal earlier this year (similar spec, but over a ton cheaper), and the Studio XPS deal in January 2009. Can't fault them. They use all standard parts (I've upgraded the PSU in both), and they run very quietly.

Yes, the BIOS is locked, thus making overclocking impossible, but I would argue that if that's you're cup of tea, you're going down the self-build route anyway. Could you imagine the amount of potential warranty claims from people that have fried their systems after reading a brief guide to overclocking on the web?

You could probably build this yourself for a bit less, but you you'd need to factor in an OS and the warranty. It's deals like this that stopped me building my own.
#25
Worth the £30 upgrade for either the 4GB Ram or the i7-870 as opposed to 860?

Whatever... Buy it yoursel mate and soon after that you will be replacing PSU as you will need more powerfull graphic card which is hungry for power.Also RAM suplied is rubbish.You will need to replace it with branded name RAM for good performance.Hard drive is made by Hitachi - worst ever hard drive and only 500GB.This needs to be changed,as you might loose your data any time. So whats left of this CHEAP GOOD DEAL PC??? - processor and tower case.Well,if you think they are worth 551-go on just buy it and ENJOY!

VAT has nothing to do with delivery. The price is ex-VAT. Unless you're buying for a business, i.e. with a business account, you are going to be charged VAT on top of the 551.08. You'd get on a lot better if you could comprehend.

seriously if you could build a better system for around the same money I would be interested to know. I've never built a PC but Im temped, I've only started to read up about it so not sure what parts I want yet, but if you could built something similar with better quality parts for around the same price I'll be interested to see it listed
