Dell XPS system misprice bargains! £687.00

There seems to be something funny going on with the Dell XPS pricing right now. Select an XPS system and then choose a different video card and the price will drop different amounts depending on which card you choose. An example is search by evalue 305 D08XP5 and then drop support service and choose the 256mb geforce and the price goes down to £687.

Thanks to wizmark ;)

This happened a couple of years ago, to the extent that if you kept upgrading it would go down further in price! ie: a laptop actually ended up being £28.
I tried to purchase one along with a few friends, but when they had realised their mistake, they did not honour any of the deals.
Not surprising really!

Try using the other XPs's code numbers as they still seem to have the error. 305-D08xp1 is worth a try ;)

Select an XPS system and then choose a different video card and the price will drop different amounts depending on which card you choose.

Err, yes, the Dell systems do that, this isn't anything amazing as the card selected is already a £400 add-on, if you select a different card the total price reflects the price drop. It's not a mis-price.

X10
[admin]#4
Yes but generally the Dell add-on price is much higher than normal retail so if it discounts by the price it "costs" on the Dell site it is a good deal.
[mod]#5
Normal pricing with the base video card is around £1100 when the lowest warranty option is selected so it is reducing the price well below that.

Hi
Did anyone get a message when doing the configuration that they are having technical difficulties with the price?

I see, well £700 seems about the right price to pay for a base unit with those features from what I could see of them

Dell has stated there is a Lead Time on the XPS 700 systems at the top of the page, so that might give them the time they need to cancel any orders that are mis-prices.

Dell
[COLOR=Red]Please be advised that there is currently an extended lead-time on the Dimension XPS 700 and there will be a delay in the delivery of this system.

Good find but

Im not quite sure if this is a misprice. I think it gives you an incorrect (higher) price initially which makes it go up.
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]Try doing this: when you have chosen the evalue code and can see the item, don't change anything, just press update price and the price lowers, eventhough you haven't made any changes....[/SIZE]
#10
Fantastic Spot! I've just ordered one and everyone I work with are interested. Just to check, the worst thing that can happen is they could cancel the order, is that correct? I don't want to receive a bill for the extr £400+ :-D
#11
Is this really a mis-price or is it the normal price? If it is a mis price what is the normal price?

it seems to also have a core 2 duo processor (for windows vista) which i think only came out last week.
#12
Unfortuantely not a mis price - the D08XP5 automatically selects the 512MB 7900GTX graphic card, which is £246.75 more a month, and down grading the supoprt gives you £176.25 less to pay, bringing the price down to £688.00...good price though!!
#13
was tempted by this but then sat down and worked out u could probably build yourself for a bit less
#14
this is a mispirce (mis-configuration of graphics card options) on this system, the XPS range is Dell's Flagship High Spec machines and sell for a premium price and has a lot of bells and whistles that you don't get on their normal system, i.e. 750w power supply, a standard BTX motherboard layout meaning that you can actually replace the motherboard not like in the normal Dell which have the own non-standard fixing points etc

The cheapest configuration you could get on this machine prior to the misprice was £1098 - i use this website for checking the latest Dell deals and they always have the lowest prices listed, you can check what the old price was here http://www.dmxdimension.com/blogcategory/dell_uk_xps_700.html

Dell have now corrected their error.

I hope they honour my order! Saved over £400 :lol:

Thanks xlr8r_y2k :) It's also £400 cheaper if you're quick!

#28
but this is only if u get a cheaper graphics card and a lesser warrenty then standard. surely thats not a mis-price?
[mod]#29
A warranty of 1 year or more is your choice to make but the selection of the cheaper card reduces the price much too much, like £400 too much.
#30
I think I figured out the graphics card error: when you change from 512MB GeForce7900 to a 256MB version, it substructs 411GBP. To add the same graphics card again it costs 246GBP. The error difference is about 165GBP. Still a good price though!

the cheapest you could buy the most basic XPS 700 at before was £1089 - it's becuase it's Dell super duper all bells and whistles ultimate gaming pc is why it's soo expensive in the first place - £705 del is a misprice - it should be £1089.

I would've bought one of the offered DELLs, but:
both E6300 and E6400 CPUs have only 2MB L2 cache. The E6700 has a 4MB L2 cache, but the price is a joke (add 400GBP). The E6600 (also 4MB L2 cache), which I am planning on buying is not listed at all.
Tip: PC World is also offering two new Core 2 Duo desktops, more info here:

the E6400 beats a Pentium 955 Extreme Edition (£700 for the processor on it's own) in the benchmarks, fast enough for me at the moment.

The Dell machine has some special features like the 750w PSU (quad sli capable) a standard size BTX mobo not like other dells and of course the mobo uses the NVIDIA nForce 590SLI chipset

#36
Interesting thread discussion.
I've just got home and put my own system together, with the components I'd like to have in a top spec machine and it works out just a tiny bit cheaper than the XPS system.
Other than not having to worry about putting it together (which I was planning on doing anyway), this isn't really a saving for an enthusiast.
But, at £400 less than what you'd have to pay for it normally I guess it can be considered a good deal for your average punter.
So, Good Spot Freebie_Fetish:)

Could you share your specs with us m8?

for anybody with a good socket 939 system its gonna be pricey new ram new mboard and new cpu

for the time being ive decided to stick with my opteron system

if you started from scratch the Dell misprice of £752 (including a 12 month onsite warranty) for the 2.13processor aint bad, the thing is a lot of people canbalise their old pc and then add on what they need when upgrading, if you add it all up roughly for a similar DIY job from scratch...

Case i.e. thermaltake shark £85
750w PSU £100
Asus M2N32-Sli-DeLuX nForce 590 Sli mobo £100
Intel E6400 2.13 processor £150
160GB 7200rpm HDD £40
160GB 7200rpm HDD £40
512mb DDR2 533MHz £30
512mb DDR2 533MHz £30
16x max. DVD+/-RW £30
256MB nVidia GeForce 7900GS £175
Legit Full XP Pro £85

Total £865

this it totally rough and am sure you could save here and there but the thing is people don't count the OS and the bits the rob from their old machines on and of course what bits you get from fleabay.
