Shouldn't be a problem for anyone to buy from that range! I think it asks for your business, name but just use your name.

The member prob wants to use quidco so he's going into the main web page at Dell and using the ecode boxes to get to the deal.

The ecode is anything in the first box and N1086001 in the second box (no leading or trailing spaces)

Look carefully at the quidco merchants options for Dell. There is a separate listing for Dell Small Business and 5% as opposed to just 4% on Home site.

The A860 is a basic lappy that comes into Dell pre built from China I think to save assembly costs locally. For that reason I cant say what the build quality is like.
The cpu in this base model is ok for most everyday office tasks and 1gig of ram will run Vista basic, though more would be better.
The battery at 31Whr isnt going to last long enough to play a dvd I wouldnt think. No dvdrw on this model either.

Thanks still none the wiser but will give it a miss just on the battery this is a minefield been looking for days now to get one and I do not have a clue what is good or not suppose will keep looking although got to have it by the 13th Nov as its a present! bet I will still be umming and ahhing and then end up with nothing

The first thing I look at on a computer is the processor. Given current technology, 2GHz or thereabouts is what you should aim for - as for the MHz you want as many as you can; my dad's Acer has 800 or so of them.

Secondly is RAM; You don't want to be running Vista on anything less than 2GB, and even then you really should be looking at 3GB's. What I'd do is take the model of the laptop and go to somewhere like Crucial.com and check out what memory is compatible for it, then start hitting eBuyer and eBay for cheaper prices. RAM and memory in general has dropped in price considerably and is very easy to install.

Thirdly, the hard drive capacity. If you can, find out what make the hard drive is and Google it. When something is cheaper they've sometimes cut back on the quality of a component, and the last thing you need is a dicky hard drive that'll fail within a few months. Being from Dell though, you should be fine. I'd try and get 250GB; I've 160GB's in my iMac and I've run out of space with some films and a sizeable iTunes library.

Fourth, for laptops at least, the battery. Google it if you don't know what 4 and 6 cell means. My dad's laptop has a 6 cell battery and last almost 3 hours fully charged, so I'd go for that if you're looking at being portable with it.

Last, but not least, I always stick the name/make/model of the computer into google and see what other people have had experiences with it, namely the build quality.

By no means technical, but this has kept me in good stead for the past few years with regards to buying computer hardware. Just some tips for the luddites out there who are bewildered with computer specifications. Goole is your friend - use it!

Not sure this is a hot deal - this is the new usual price for the Vostro's now isn't it? Also it's not very high spec, although OK as an alternative to a netbook, having the productivity advantage and the DVD playback for those who need it. Hmm...

Do you know if any good laptops in tomorrows deals or is it a wait and see;-)

Ordered a similiar spec lappy back in August order was delayed twice and then Dell cancelled my order without telling me then proceeded to charge me for it,and im still trying to get a refund.A good deal but shocking customer service...order and hope ya get it for chrimbo;)
#21
just got a couple of these yesterday both models
not usual quality, the screens were dirty and needed cleaning, the keyboards are bit bouncy and dont seem to be fitted very well, only used the cheaper single core model so far seems pretty speedy it only has 1gb ram but this is in 1 stick ( not 2 x 512 ) so can easily be upgraded as it has 2 slots. its probably quick cos its running vista basic and not running all the graphics stuff in premium. they dont have the truelife screens but they are very nice looking machines lot better than the vostro 1000 ( but not as sturdy)
there nothing on the market as good as these for the price
also built in bluetooth, u dont usualy get that in cheaper models
#22
[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Ordered the dual core version of this on the 30th of September, was advised it would not be delivered until 14th of October because of demand, was delivered on the 2nd of October![/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Arial][/FONT]
[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Two days, this is the fastest Dell delivery I have ever had and can not fault them for their service.[/SIZE][/FONT]

I can't get the ecode voucher to work either - its coming up as £286 delivered for me.

I'd be buying it otherwise as it seems like a good spec for the money and it is needed to save space more than for portability so the poor battery life isn't a major concern.

Yeah, when I clicked on the direct link it came out as £251.45 delivered thanks :thumbsup:

I can't get that price by visiting the website direct though, so i'm not sure how I could go through quidco (I did click on the small business link rather than dell home)

Sign into Quidco-go dell small business-use find ecode boxes. Put anything in first box and N1086001 in second box. Job done.

Anyone want to give their opinion on whether this Dell is better than this Packard Bell at PC World.
