People say Mac's are expensive. Well what about this?
#2
Almost £800 and you don't even get a 1080p screen *sigh*
#3
Plus £19.99 for delivery?

If you have EPP you can get another 5% off giving a total price including delivery of £771.
#5
Awesome windows laptop! Not sure about those funky keyboard keys though...
#6
Seems like a good deal, expensive as it is just out. Id still prefer to buy an ASUS one with optimus and a 13" screen. Personal choice. Not a big fan of 15.6" screens. Unfortunately they seem to have become std. for a 15.6 i think its a good deal speciall with a nex gen processor, optimus and a decent battery.. if only it was £200 cheaper and a 13 inch I would have snapped it up !!

cold this is cheaper

It's cheaper because it is a different range - this deal is for the XPS 15z. The XPS 15 doesn't have an aluminium alloy body.
#9
The 1080p screen model with Core i7 processor, 8GB RAM and 2GB graphics card can be had for about £1000 with the same coupon code and after 7% cashback. Not sure if its worth the money though.

Hmm I suppose a few of you haven't seen the point of this, this is supposed to be a premium laptop built with better materials as well as the thin form factor, it's also relatively light as higher spec laptops go.
#11
Would want a full size keyboard really, but looks good.
#12
~£800 is not too bad for a gaming laptop, especially with a 7200rpm harddrive. That said, for that money I'd consider an Alienware or equivalent for similar money, but if you're going for a more grown up looking gaming laptop then this should be considered
#13
Sorry, but how is this different to this: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/dell-xps-15-l502x-intel-i5-2410-2-3ghz-4gb-ddr3-1333mhz-500gb-sata-7200rpm-1gb-g/941020?page=1

The main elements of the 2 (processor, gfx card, ram, HDD etc) are all identical as far as I can see, and only 529.00 that I paid.

A rightly cold deal until proven otherwise.

That deal has expired?

You can still get it for 628.
#16
You're basically paying extra for the "style" - it also has a larger 8 cell battery, is a thinner and weighs less.
#17
Can't Dell think of their own designs?

you probably want to get the one with the good screen (it's not just a question of FHD/resolution - the more expensive screen is much brighter and has much better contrast) for £999, with 10% discount code and 10% quidco it comes to £810 ish, (or the more high-powered 1199 model). The 899 model seems a bit pointless to me, unless you just want to have something that looks a bit like a mac for cheap - but not that cheap.

not sure if this really counts as a "deal", but it does make the 15" macbook pro look expensive, which they have made a decent copy of - though to be fair many of the design features of the MBP were copied from elsewhere.

some people totally fail to see the point. lol

MBP + Bootcamp > This Deal.

Seriously this thing wants to be a mac so bad it's cringeworthy.

I'm an Apple fan. I own 2 iMacs, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Mini, iPad, iPod Nano and Apple TVs. But I'm sorry the Windows experience on a MacBook is appalling. The trackpad is next to useless to use and the keyboard layout is a problem too. Apple has done an appalling job writing bootcamp drivers so that both the performance and battery life are pretty terrible when running Windows against comparable hardware from PC OEMs.

If I wanted to run Windows on a laptop I'd buy something like this from Dell. You will enjoy a much better experience.
#23
Congratulations on your claim to own so many Macs. Sent from my ferrari on my way to my control centre in Cupertino. :D

Seriously though, claiming the Windows experience is appalling & blaming the trackpad just suggest user incompetence more than anything. They keyboard layout isn't a problem at all either you just need to know a couple of shortcuts.

If anything Mac can offer a better Windows experience than most Windows laptops. As for battery no idea which MBP you have but I can get 6 hours+ in bootcamp powering an external monitor from the battery *shrugs*.

If I wanted to run Windows I wouldn't buy this that's for sure. The phrase "should of gone to specsavers" will be on the tip of everyones tongue when you pop this "badboy" out.

The trackpad problems are well documented. It's so bad many people just plug a USB mouse into their MacBooks when running Windows. It's nothing to do with incompetence. Apple does the bare minimum to make their stuff run in Windows and nothing more. Battery life problems are also well established running Windows on portable devices. I'm an absolute Apple fan boy but I would never try to claim the Windows experience is better on a Mac than on a real PC. It's not. If you think it is then you've never run Windows on a real PC with proper OEM support.

I love your overstatement & misunderstanding of every thing you claim. Truly laughable however highly enjoyable although sadly not worth any kind of serious response. Unfortunately no amount of (claimed) Mac devices or money is going to improve your incompetence or understanding of what you have read and failed to grasp.

Enjoy the Dell buddy you were made for each other.

P.s can't wait to see the complaints when the hinges start to fall off :p

I think you are just trolling. You must be because anyone with any decent amount of experience knows Apple's Boot Camp drivers are a joke. I'm not saying Dell builds better computers than Apple either because they don't. I know previous gen XPS laptops have suffered from hinge issues that Dell still tries to pretend is not an issue. And I know they've had to extend warranties on various product lines due to defects.. But in terms of supporting Windows operating system, a Dell machine has better compatibility with the OS than any Mac full stop.

Anyway I have no interest in buying this Dell. I have a Windows desktop that is more than adequate for the testing I need to do as a software developer. :) Everything else I do is done on various Macs I have scattered around the place. And I'm quite happy with my iMacs and MacBooks Pro/Air.

Hot price for this laptop.
I got a MacBook pro but Mac OS wasn't for me. Wanted the sexiness of a mac with the familiarity of windows. This seems to be best of both.
