good deal for an xps....voted hot
#2
This isn't a dig, I'm genuinely interested. But what's the advantage of an XPS without a decent graphics card? What makes these better than the Vostro and Inspirons?
#3
weight and style and display, also supposedly quality of components, they get highly rated in ultraportable tests where weight and usability count for more than gameplay!
#4
Yesterday this was only £584 with the discount code applied !
#5
I bought this before Christmas, upgraded to the LED screen and 6 cell battery (biggest battery that didn't result in a huge bit of battery sticking out of the rear)

Great machine, light, quality build, nice features - th efingerprint scanner seems such a gimmick, but is actually very good.

I would buy this at this price.

The only reason to get xps model is to have top specs, you can get an equivalent system for less if you go for the basic model. The extras doesn't justify its price tag.

i always want to get one of these 13.3" with solid state drive, then i look at the price tag... *faints

i'm eagerly waiting for a price drop in SSD before I get a m1330.

You could get this for £584 with a 10% discount till the 9th Jan - no doubt Dell will be bringing out another 10% discount code soon .
I bought one of these - excellent price considering it`s portabilty size and spec- unsure where you can get laptops so portable for less - only MSI have one at £570 and their spec is nowhere near as good as the XPS. Certainly all the other leading brands your looking at £750 min .
Would recommend paying an extra £40 and going for the 2Ghz model though as 1.66 Ghz struggles with many new games designed to run on Vista.

Its only an extra £59 to have a nVidia 8400m GS... wouldnt that be a good investment in the long run?
After all i always thought these were potable gaming pc's for lan partys etc..

repped and voted hot :)

An absolutely massive unequivocal YES.
The graphics in the one listed is the only thing that lets it down, well worth the extra money for the 8400 (although that in itself isn't a very good graphics adapter - but will be ok for games)

Is the 10% discount already in the pricing or does it require a discount voucher code OR QUIDCO ?

I am thinking of getting one of these but with 2.2Ghz CPU,Nvidia GFX, 250 HD & LED screen. I think this will cost around £869 delivered. If i could get 10% on top (making free delivery) i might just go for it.

If there are any coupon/discount voucher codes available please let me know.

There haven't been any new codes as yet, this week, they came out every week for about 4 weeks and last one finished on the 9th.....however, from reading posts in the past it can be worth a call to Dell direct to see if you can get a better deal, worth a phone call if it works, few pence out of pocket if it doesn't. 5% quidco on the ex.vat price, takes about 3 months to come through.

Tip for the 8400GS:

I have one in my HP DV2535a. It's great for Counter-Strike and other Source games, but it struggles with Unreal Tournament 3, GOW and COD4 - all 3 of these games need lower resolutions and many fancy graphics features (whole point of DX10!) turned off. Great if you want to play slightly older games, but don't expect Crysis to run at a sensible frame rate!

@mumbojumbo

Thanks for clearing that up.

I hope the offer come again before the end of the month so that it can be combined with the current price discounts.
#14
every time this comes up I post as an owner that the keyboard is rubbish, for a £1200 top of the line laptop its inexcusable but at £600 its a good deal, although the LED screen is well worth the upgrade money!

thats a big generalism for the xps range overall but you'd certainly get a cheaper dell with same core specs

the m1330 is about the form factor

it's less than 2kg including the power pack, carring it around this makes a HUGE difference, essentially this is a macbook with the specs of a powerbook without suffering osx.

also the fingerprint reader makes a difference for me, (shame it doesn't do preboot authentication like samsungs did) I can have a ridiculous password and never have to remember it, combine it with a decent hdd password and your data for tiny cost is fairly secure.

tbh if your considering with the better screen i'd have a look on ebay, there's acouple of good sellers knocking these out at same prices as dell but with vista ultimate and 3-4yr warranty.

I see what you mean, it's really hard to find a 13" for this price. But when it comes to xps, I'm prepared to get a good spec one that probably cost me an arm and a leg, It wouldn't be quite an xtreme performance system otherwise now would it? :thumbsup:

Hi, I currently have a 15.4 in laptop which is on its way out and like the look of this one due to the portability & decent specs for the price. I would be upgrading the battery to 6 cell and the processor to 2GHz which would come out at around £655.

This thread got me thinking ...

As the only games I play on my laptop are emulations of old consoles and the odd game of stick cricket I would expect the integrated gfx would do me, but I have limited knowledge of the difference between this option and the 128MB Graphics Card. The only other thing I can think this would be used for is that I would be using the HDMI output to my 32in screen for playback of recorded TV.

Can someone give a recommendation on which gfx option would be best based on the usage above? As I understand it the integrated option would run cooler and give better battery life which is the reason for the question and not the additional cost of the upgrade.

Tnx
