Use the code JTXL12S8??VZ31 to bring the price down to £740.05. Plus go through quidco for additional savings.
#3
lovely, bet they run osx well, too...
/ponders :)

You're better off with the Vostro deals by far. Although if you need a 13.3" screen then you can't get that with the Vostro.
#5
I rang in and ordered explained to them what price i would get with discount code.

So at the end i got this with the LED screen
bluetooth module,
extra 160gb instead of 120gb. + 9 cell BATTERY too
1yr warranty.

Total of £899!!

not sure was that a good deal??

or if i get it tell them dont wan tthis normally they offer more discount then its ok i guess!!

but what do u think .

2ghz 13.3 screen
2gb ram
160gb hd, led screen
9 cell battery

Have been waiting for a better deal on this one so just bought it. Thanks to Mike for pointing it out and thanks to kemot - managed to get the price down further.
#7
Alfie786 is the model you've ordered with the Nividia 8400 graphics card or integrated graphics?

I upped the spec on the machine linked at the top of the page and for the extras you added it seemed to come to £996 (assuming you have the 8400 graphics).

I'm not a fan of the way chosing the wong machine to customise can cost you dearly. It's also annoying how you can't alter all the specs all the time.
#8
You can get a better spec Vostro 1700 for less than this. That's a 17" WUGXA trulife screen with a better graphics card, better processor, and bigger hard drive for less.

smaller size in laptops cost more

...also this is LED backlit and looks nice

Spoke to the rep he gave me more discount on each item.

the 160gb hd and the led screen more specificly. led down to 93 quid the 160gb drive about £27.

i doubt i got a discount on the bluetooth module

*** It does come with the 128mb 8400GS grahics card too. So i guess im ok without going through quidco too! not bad. ****

"Can't you give them a call and see if they can add a laptop bag or something? " QUOTED ABOVE
TRUST ME I TRIED!!! i tried to pull out too lol , but i belive once you get the lappy you to them you dont wish to take it then they call back and poss give you more of a discount they dont want to loose the sell!! maybe another £40 off so hence why i went with this deal!! imagine that woudl be deal !!



I wasnt sure about the led screen and the 9 cell. thought 9 cell going on a journey ill get at least 3.5hrs or 4 i hope. and with the LED this is achievable and hoping to be the 2kg mark not too much over!!

Did not bother with the fingerprint reader as id rather go with more space ie 160gb than the fingerprint reader.

Sure you can get 17" but who is going to carry that everyday!! got this really needed a light laptop to take anywhere and surf or work on do what i needed but mainly travel with as a laptop shud be so. Unless i needed somerthing i cud hide at home had no space certainly 17" or 15.4 connected to a large 24" dell.

Umm...a 17 inch laptop isn't quite as portable as a 13 inch laptop - generally the smaller you go from 15 inches, the more money you pay despite the fact you're often getting lower spec. I have both an 11.1 inch (Sony TX) and 17inch laptop(Dell XPS M171), the 11.1 inch was more expensive despite the fact its performance is nothing against the XPS. The two machines serve an entirely different purpose and there's no way you can compare the two.

Great deal Mike - this is a great spec out of the box which doesn't need costly upgrades.

Hi guys, spoke to dell sales last night, got a price of 899 for 2.2 ghz 120hh,8400 graphics m1330, which i was considering, the sales guy also said the graphics card could be updated, and blueray drive fitted at later date, is this true, not sure if he was spinning me a yarn to get me to buy the xps m1330
[mod]#13
The graphics is fixed at 128Meg and there is no upgrade path available so unless he has a secret he's pulling the wool. Fitting a blue ray later would be expensive if and when available for the 1330

Thx very much for the info mike, i thought that to, but just let him ramble to get a better price, just spoke to a friend who works in IT and he basicly said the same as you, he was sure the graphics card could not be updated but thought the drive could be.
Many thx for finding this deal, really saved me a few quid, will be ordering from dell via quidco in the morning.
cheers
#15
Hmm, I doubt it to be honest - even when graphics modules fit and are compatible they are still not guaranteed to work (thinking of the XPS 2/M170 and the M1710). I wouldn't rely on that information at all especially with a smaller machine, at best it's a possible bonus in the future.

Thats not a bad deal - you saved about £90 off Dell site (after quidco & discount)
#20


Nice specification but it's a 15.4 inch machine which is noticeable step up in terms of size/weight over a 13.3 inch machine. The SZ series is the equivalent to the XPS M1330 as far as I'm aware, getting a little confused with Sony changing some of their name ranges but not the others.

i did not use quidco as you can only use that via the site. I bought this direct from the sales rep.

OH and who is fernando? Who rang up a different rep and stated that this rep who sold me the rep gave this price blah blah.. PLEASE your getting the REPS in trouble and then will not offer good deals.

Stick to the rep that i would state. you make it difficult for others to purchase.


the deal i got is about £1100 saving quite bit without 5% and quidco so not bad.

I Think If you still want cheaper DEAL, we can get the

2.0ghz
120gb
2gb ram
9 cell battery UPGRADED from 6 cell ( lasts longer) bump sticks out though bit heavier not as nice as 6 cell)
bluetooth module
STANDARD LCD not LED
(NO fingerprint reader )

FOR : £722 delivered.!!

If you want this DEAL email me or PM me [email protected]">[email protected]
#22
wanted to ask you guys would you get a 2.0ghz WITH THE LED SCREEN.

Or

Get a 2.2ghz WITHOUT LED screen.

I and several colleagues received XPS1330 notebooks as a new work machines the other day. The one I received has a case with serious wobble. Placing my left hand on the palm rest causes the whole thing to rock - very annoying. My collegues machine had a similar problem, though not quite so extreme. I solved the problem with a bit of bluetac under teh left hand side. Apparently not an isolated problem according to various forums.

On a more subjective note, the screen looked a lot smaller than that on my old Sony s4xp - even though the screens have identical dimensions. Perhaps this is to do with the smaller amount of case around the Sony screen?

The HDMI port is a nice addition, though if you want to use a 1330 for work the lack of a docking port is a serious omission (for 2nd monitor and things you can't use USB docks for).

Nice remote control for Windows Media centre though!

Just my 2p!

p.s. Alfie - comparing my 1330 (with LED lighting) with my old Sony I don't notice much difference; colleagues remarked they didn't think it was worth extra £100. WHy not take a trip down PCWorld and get a salesman to show you a LED vs a non-LED machine?

I am seriously considering returning my wobbly 1330 for a Sony SZ6 even though the processor is slightly slower (and no HDMI) it has IMHO a better build quality.

I have the Vostro 1400 and i too have a wobbly base but Dell shipped out new rubber "feet" to install and now its not wobbly.
#25
Manzi - really? Hehe, I'll look forward to receiving those then! Just hope nothing else starts to wobble!:w00t:
#26
Isn't the main advantage of the LED lighting that it is less draining on the battery?
#27
Hi Dash - you would think so, wouldn't you. I know that Steve Jobs was pushing them as the "Greener" alternative to the flourescent lamp in pre-led backlights.

On the flourescence theme, I found a link to an interesting article about LCD panels with flourescent backights, and how some people find them uncomfortable to look: link Perhaps LED backlights are the ideal thing for people whjo hate flourescent lights?!!! Hmmm
#28
Thanks guys i have ordered my mate the same spec without led and is arriving earlier by 2 weeks and can see the difference. Also ask for some compensaton due to the time i had to wait for an LED and get some warranty if so then id keep the led otherwise just to first see if its worth it.

£900 still a alot for a laptop nowadays!

Much better pricing now available on 1330 here.
