Heat - dropbox works better than the others IMO
This should be hot!
Also if you purchase the subscription you will received a $25 eGift Card sent to you via email in 10-20 days of purchase.

Why's this cold??


Possibly because you can get an Office 365 1 year subscription which includes 1TB of OneDrive storage for far less money (£29.99 @ Argos)...

I'm missing something? Google photos is free unlimited. Flicker and others offer uncompressed free storage for photos if needed. Why would you pay? 15gig Google drive storage is enough for docs and other stuff isn't it. I have 19gig for life and 30gig of onedrive, because I followed the advice here. What are people storing in the cloud thats worth paying for? Just asking because I don't know.


I have over 400GB of files/folders in Dropbox.. you wouldn't believe how much space graphic design work takes up!

I don't know if anyone will see this, but were those that got this happy with it? How many scratches/dents were there? Does it run fast enough? Thanks.
Sorry, appears to have gone already!
One back in stock right now, no coupon this time but students get 15% off, could be worth it for them?
Wish I had seen this earlier in market for a laptop, anyone got any other recommendations for about the same price. Anyone think Amazon prime day will throw up any good deals.?

Working as a 'full stack' developer and IT support I need plenty of Ram and processor power.
I appreciate the XPS line up being sturdier than many as it gets dragged all over the country too and in daily use.

I did play some games on my L702x, but haven't so far on this 9530; wish I had time for them.

It'll be another XPS15 for me next, despite various issues with this one. Despite liking the previous big screen, I've appreciated the portability more than I thought. Also helps that I've got 43" and 28" 4k monitors at work, 40" 4k at home and another 28" 4k elsewhere as needed :D .

Though; if anyone can suggest a better alternative, I'd be interested.

I dont think you understood the point in the post you quoted.This is £1249 for a laptop that wants to be a gaming laptop but does not cut it. If you wanted it for non-gaming, aka "home/business machine" reasons, then get a laptop with a similar or better spec for that purpose for several hundred pounds less...dont pay for the 1050 graphics card if you dont need it.An example would be like this offering with a 960m instead of a 1050 as neither of them cut it with games but the graphics on both are over powered for non-gamers:https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-7QF-1670UK-Gaming-Laptop-Black/dp/B01NAP5GO3Saving around £450 on the deal here but there are others with even less graphics power at half the price of this.I dont care about the "gaming loser" argument, I care about the why waste five hundred quid when you dont have to argument.


I'll be using this machine for computationally hungry development work which will require paralellism and will hopefully use the graphics card for data churning for deep learning. Ill also have a few VMs running on it. I wouldnt agree that this is a gaming machine.

However the main attraction to this paticular machine was the brighter screen so i can work outside. Im sure that'll attract more comments!

An example would be like this offering with a 960m instead of a 1050 as neither of them cut it with games but the graphics on both are over powered for non-gamers:https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-7QF-1670UK-Gaming-Laptop-Black/dp/B01NAP5GO3
Saving around £450 on the deal here but there are others with even less graphics power at half the price of this.
Haha, imagine pulling that plastic, chunky piece of junk out in a business meeting :)
If you want to pay double the price for a pretty laptop then go ahead.

It's not so much a 'pretty' thing, the one in the link looks like a child's toy.

Can get a gtx1060 GPU For the same money cold from me
Aye that is for gaming though? This is a more of a home/business machine.
Yes, definitely worth pointing out that not everyone is a gaming loser...why does every laptop and even TV deal have to be all about gaming??

Because the majority of people spending large amounts of money on IT equipment tend to be gamers. The average user, a 7700HQ is overspeced, along with the RAM and the SSD if I'm honest. Most people would notice barely any difference between this and a 7500U, with half the RAM and a small OS SSD with large HDD. In fact the U process using far less power, they'd probably prefer the latter. So half the laptop screams gaming machine, while the GPU is fairly weak to properly compliment the rest of the hardware. Sort of like putting a 1L eco-diesel in a sports car. Sure it still works, but it doesn't really do the job most people would intend of it.


Not always, content creators, coders and those working on algorithms and so on benefit from more CPU but doesn't necessarily need high end GPU.

I make websites and render videos so this laptop would interest me.

Dell prices are ludicrous in the UK. The Pound is starting a new rally cycle which is going to be interesting to see - I suspect that Dell will continue with crazy prices whilst the likes of Lenovo drop their prices in the months ahead.

Are you kidding me ?
Lenovo dones't have remotely close good price for anything with similar specs.
Can you use 30% OFF for xps 15 in outlet store?
TomScrut
The 5510 automatically adds the discount, which I think is similar to what Dell normally do on Precisions anyway?

Yes for next two days on refurbished laptops from Dell outlet and New from Dell UK website. 30% off.

Sorry for some reasons i am unable to update the link: so pasting here, http://www.dell.com/uk/dfb/p/?~ck=bt&s=dfb&~ck=mn&dgc=IR&cid=271561&lid=5090163

They no longer offer 3 year warranties as standard on all the higher end Latitudes (7 series) and Precisions for quite a while now even when there are no deals on.A shame as the 7370 is expensive to start with without paying for a longer warranty.

Depends what you mean by 'a while'. I had one 5510 ordered late April and it had 3y warranty as standard. Had to return it due to faulty screen though (known issue with flickering 4k screen and couldn't fix it with bios downgrade), ah well...

any other codes for alienware?

Sadly all expired now.They never last long.
The computers in the outlet are returned machines so it depends how the person configured them. It sounds like someone probably built a machine with the wrong graphics card and once they realised their mistake (after reading it) sent it back for a refund.

You sometimes get some weird configurations on the outlet for this type of reason and these are the ones that tend to stick around as the pricing just doesn't seem as attractive for what you are getting.
I tried to call dell Customer service Number today (top left hand side of their site) and got the Automated run around and had to select the "Ive made a purchases inquiry" Option then ask them to put me though to a sales rep finally (didn't get his name), i was asking about Aurora R5 And R6 and XPS (well trying too) but the crap attitude from the sales rep made me think twice on the whole thing i said that it was my understanding (which could be wrong) one machine Aurora R6 with a Core i5-7400, "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB GDDR5" had a better graphics card than a Aurora R6 Core I7600, "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti with 4GB GDDR5" Graphics card and why this was? but he kept referring to the processor and saying the graphics card had nothing to do with the price etc which automatically raised concerns (I'm a little tech savvy) and i know well fine graphics card has got plenty to do with things if I'm gonna pay £1000+ on a machine i want to know the specs of parts am paying for and all possible upgrade options as an extra £50 or £100 upgrade can make a huge different to everything long term. he eventually said the Aurora R6's Core I5 graphics card was better than the core I7 machine (i don't how much difference he said not much though) and he didn't know why this was, then a little bit later he said he was to do with over all cost, a high processor with a lower graphics card was a cost thing which made no sense to both of us and this was a "Dell" thing. why pay £1000+ for a machine with a lesser graphics card (which you would probably have to upgrade) i found out you can upgrade a Core i7-6700 (locked) to a Core i7-6700K Processor (Unlocked for Overclocking for £80) i was also asking about the discount codes and when i did they guy's attitude went from bad to worse and he more or less made out I was making it up there's no 15% off code and to go buy it online, at which point i had to cut the call answer my door and speak to someone. that sales rep made me think twice on the whole thing, Ive got no doubts about buying a machine, but doubt it will soon, and doubt be from Dell

I received my "scratch and dent" alienware laptop yesterday. Can't see a mark on it. It's what I would expect to get if it was brand new!
@rog I used the code for XPS a couple of days ago and it worked no problem. £1100 for a pretty much maxed out xps 15 (but with the FHD screen), seems like a good deal! Hopefully the QC won't turn out to be a problem..

The reason why you want the 4k display on the Dell's is because their 1080p screens are terrible TN panels.

They replaced the TN panel with an IPS panel on the newer Gaming 7567 machines.

Got this from outlet for 825 with 15% nus discount. Very pleased. As above worth getting outlet stuff instead. Mine had full packing and protective stickers. Likely cancelled ordet

These are actually pretty decent gaming machines, LinusTechTips review here (i5 version). And they constantly make the top 5 budget gaming laptops in reviews.

Best under $1000 gaming laptop review.

Although I personally would not go for the 4k setup for gaming, I would go for the 1080p for £948.99. The main difference is that the £948.99 one doesn't have a 4k screen (you will not be gaming at that resolution on a 1050Ti so its really a waste on a gaming machine, also using a laptop with a 4k screen significantly lowers your battery life over a 1080p panel). Onto the storage, the cheaper option comes with a 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD, which is much more usable for large game installations than a single 512GB SSD.

Not much in it between the 15 and 17. The size and weight is minimal.
The gtx 1080 is only on the 17.
I am not a lover of the 4K uhd screens. And the 1080 still isn't perfect at 4K
So my perfect match is a 1070/1080 with a 1440 screen for future proofing.

Absolutely agree with you on the pairing - the 1080 struggles with 4k as it is, and will only get worse over time. QHD gives a bunch of headroom with 1070/1080, and gsync is so good!

When so many people get so excited by reductions in weight of fractions of a kilo, I'd say the 17 weighing a kilo more than the 15 is pretty substantial though :)

Nice find op, heat added.

How is the thermal cooling on the AW 15? My recent AW 17 had to go back for full refund from the outlet after 6 months because of excessive heat which basically killed the GPU. After many repairs of GPU and mobo's, I was offered the full refund which was fortunate. Great laptop and would like something to replace it - this seems a good price.

If you have an external monitor then yeah I guess, in this day and age and this price you'd expect at least a half a decent screen, not a crappy TN

No-one would accept a old TN screen, even a 1080p one, on their phone these days; it would have to be IPS or better. So why would Dell think people looking for a quite pricy gaming laptop would accept this backward step?
It would be interesting to see the sales figures for these Inspiron 7000 laptops. My guess is the general public are voting with their wallets and avoiding them like the plague!
I guess they hope people buy purely based on the spec of the machine and resolution rather than the actual quality of the screen. So many laptops (not just Dell) have awful washed out screens these days, my HP Probook 650 is terrible and that's not a budget model.

Why are laptops so expensive at the moment with crappy screens?

Honestly, if you're not doing colour oriented work like Photoshop etc then the screen will get you by in gaming and most other applications imo. However I've saying this from the 7559 so i don't know how bad this model is but i would assume Dell use the screens from last year

There's a brief page that shows prior to that error which has a link about halfway down the text. If you are quick you can click on that and the order then goes to confirmation page. I've just managed to do that 5 mins ago and had confirmation email through.
Has anyone managed to actually place an order yet? Must have tried a couple of dozen times throughout the day... every time I get the "There was a problem authenticating..." message. I've tried three different cards, two PCs, one laptop and my phone. Very frustrating!
This totally prompted me to buy a FHD 13" 2-in1 laptop :) But officially Dell refurbished from a seller on eBay instead as it was cheaper, had more ram and the same type of warranty :D

If you can get them to accept payment that is... epic fail by Dell on this one.
"There was a problem authenticating your MasterCard information. To protect against unauthorized use of your card, you cannot complete your purchase without successfully completing authentication."
Ring customer services... "site wide problem, and we cant take payment over the phone - sorry"... yet as I was on the phone to them their stock numbers were going down... lol

Same on Mastercard and Visa (and I had used both of them today already). Rang both cards and not declined any payments either. WTF


I agree. Payments are epic fail. Same happened to me while paying with Visa.

Dell have released their new Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Series (7567) if you don't mind the 1050ti
they have got rid of the IPS display, apparently changed it to a really bad TN panel, shame really as i would have got one
I had a look at the new Inspiron 15 and concluded it wasn't right for my needs.
What I want is a 15" laptop with a 4GB 1050 Ti at the lowest price & with the least frills. PC Specialist will sell you a version of their Optimus VIII for £936 (Inc VAT). It comes with a 1080p IPS screen, an i5-7300HQ, 4GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1TB HDD and Windows 10. Some folks might decry the low level of RAM, the lack of an i7 and the absence of an SSD. However the way I see it, these things don't massively impact on gaming performance so I can do without.
I'll almost certainly wait six months before parting with any cash. I'm expecting this kind of machine to fall to around £700 in the fullness of time and I'm in no hurry to upgrade.
Depends on the game but let's say that 4GB of RAM leaves you with 3GB generally available after windows essential processes plus skype/whatever. That's not a lot, I just loaded up fallout 4 without DLC or mods, 2.3GB used from the get-go. Run out and your framerate will tank. The lack of SSD will just mean it takes a while to get in game, if you're patient that's fair enough, but if you also run out of RAM and end up relying on the HDD it's gonna be a sad time.
A lot of stuff marketed at gamers is useless to them sure but not all, bargain basement machines should at least match a £200 console specs wise.
*edit* even chrome is using 4.6GB atm.

I read this interesting article on RAM and gaming performance...

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/does-more-ram-improve-gaming-performance/5/

GTA V, certainly the biggest game in my inventory (64 GB of download), seems to run fastest with 4GB of RAM! Other games tested see very little benefit for 8GB or 16GB of RAM. What I took from this is that if you have nothing else open when you're running your game, you're probably going to be okay with 4GB. If there's a problem, you can always add more down the road. Maybe VR changes things but I doubt I'll be getting into VR until the market matures and prices drop.

Jayd95, thanks for pointing out the fact that you can use your own copy of Windows 10. I've seen copies of HUKD for about £15 so that's a decent saving.

Dell have released their new Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Series (7567) if you don't mind the 1050ti
they have got rid of the IPS display, apparently changed it to a really bad TN panel, shame really as i would have got one
I had a look at the new Inspiron 15 and concluded it wasn't right for my needs.
What I want is a 15" laptop with a 4GB 1050 Ti at the lowest price & with the least frills. PC Specialist will sell you a version of their Optimus VIII for £936 (Inc VAT). It comes with a 1080p IPS screen, an i5-7300HQ, 4GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1TB HDD and Windows 10. Some folks might decry the low level of RAM, the lack of an i7 and the absence of an SSD. However the way I see it, these things don't massively impact on gaming performance so I can do without.
I'll almost certainly wait six months before parting with any cash. I'm expecting this kind of machine to fall to around £700 in the fullness of time and I'm in no hurry to upgrade.

Depends on the game but let's say that 4GB of RAM leaves you with 3GB generally available after windows essential processes plus skype/whatever. That's not a lot, I just loaded up fallout 4 without DLC or mods, 2.3GB used from the get-go. Run out and your framerate will tank. The lack of SSD will just mean it takes a while to get in game, if you're patient that's fair enough, but if you also run out of RAM and end up relying on the HDD it's gonna be a sad time.

A lot of stuff marketed at gamers is useless to them sure but not all, bargain basement machines should at least match a £200 console specs wise.

*edit* even chrome is using 4.6GB atm.

Does this still get coil wine or have they fixed that?
coil whine is only on 13" I believe from what I've read so far i.e. coil whine is not on this 15 inch range
I don't think that's true. I believe I have coil whine on mine, not loud enough to bother me but it's there
Every haswell, skylake & Kabylake has it to some degree, you can't kill the noise a chip running at that speed makes, of course in a desktop you have plenty of stuff in the way to dampen it. If you can't hear it at the normal distance you use it at with slight background noise then it isn't a problem. If you are in a silent room you may notice it but that is about as good as it gets.

Yes some are worst than others and kicking up a stink will get you a mainboard swap.

I have read the 15 7000 has a 'dull' brightness screen.....any real life comments on this please....


I've been using mine for a week and I'm happy with the screen brightness. The only complaint I have is the trackpad, quite annoying. But if you're gonna use an USB mouse you should be fine. It looks and feels premium.

[quote=Enet] Hi Enet, can you link to the Asus you're talking about please?
Hi. Its the same one as mentioned above, the ASUS-GL702VT-GC018T. All I did was select the i5,1060 option.
Here is the link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-GL702VT-GC018T-17-3-Inch-Gaming-Laptop/dp/B01LWJPHNO?th=1
I remember it being a little lower in cost as it now comes to 150 pounds more. But still worth it for the 1060 especially as the i5 is still a very good mobile gaming CPU. As Laptopmedia say:
"As you can see from the tests above, the Core i7-6700HQ has an edge over the Core i5-6300HQ when it comes to raw performance. Synthetic benchmark tests indicate around 30-40% better performance and this might be solely on the CPU clocks and the Hyper-Threading feature. But when it comes to gaming performance, both chips perform great. The chances are that you won’t be needing the higher-end Core i7-6700HQ processor for gaming.

So at the end of the day, the Core i5-6300HQ might be the better choice for gaming, but if you are looking for more computational power for CPU-intensive tasks and work, the Core i7-6700HQ will be the way to go."

For about 100 quid more (yes I know this is a lot of money, but relatively speaking) you can get the Asus with 1060 and 6GB of GRam. You sacrifice an i7 for an i5 but the i5 is still quad core running at around 2.3Ghz boosting up to 3.2Ghz.
The Asus ROG laptops
1. Heat dissipation is the best in class at least as good as Alienware. Check the reviews
2. Build is excellent. Again check the reviews.
3. No idea about battery life.
4. The Graphics Amp (is an excellent idea but it will cost you an arm and a leg with the cost of a graphics card costing you a small kidney too. I would definitely go for this option if money is no object. If however you have a 1060, you will have only paid 100 pounds more to be able to play pretty much any game for the forseeable future at worst case medium settings and be VR ready too.

Alot of programs can offload to graphics cards, if you Google to see if your programs can offload this could be faster but hotter than any macbook. Office 2016 and unlimited video converter run much faster when offloading for me.

When are the 1050/ti laptops coming out?
In the next week or so I would have thought. They won't be near this price, probably from £800 as they are now but worth the extra I would say.
If they were out next week they would be available for pre order, I haven't searched recently but a few weeks before Christmas the mainstream tech sites were citing March 2017, likely towards the end of the month. This is likely for the US and given the price point / performance I would imaging initial stock will sell very, very fast.

You can pre-order there are loads on Amazon for 20th Jan and in that area. It's just the Dell ones were confirmed as being available yesterday and they are already on the US website, just taking a bit of time for them to update the UK one.

Alternatively you can buy a refurb i5 4460 or 4570 from eBay for £170. The CPU benchmarks identical to this 6400. Spend that saved money on a better PSU and a GTX*whatever* for a gaming rig.

but it isn't hard to install a graphics card.

you open the case. take the old one out. put the new one in. attach one of the power cables inside the case.

i just bought a refurubished dell workstation on ebay for 150 quid that is only slightly slower cpu wise than my previous pc but has a much bigger power supply so I could put a better graphics card in.

Just for comparison, not voted:
The case, psu and motherboard on this are unlikely to be great, you never know. However for a cheap home build just as an example:
i3 6100 - £101.19
Gigabyte H110 Mobo - £39.98
Corsair 8gb DDR3 - £32.45
Western Digital 1tb 7200 HD - £42.95
Thermaltake Versa Case - £26.48
DVD rewriter - £11.42
EVGA 80+ Power Supply - £37.21
Total = £291.68
The issue here as per above is Windows. I'm sure some people can get it for cheap or might have a spare copy, anyways that is for you to decide. Also, the spec above has a slightly better processor and "probably" better long term life with regards to upgrading.
Those prices are not deals though, just normal prices.
Just for comparison, not wanting to get into battle :)

I would guess most people in the market for a pc have no desire to build their own, whether or not they save themselves £30 odd.

Also, don't the £12 eBay license keys get restricted en masse every few months?
Yes £30 isn't worth the bother for the average PC user and certainly having the potential risk of the OS stopping working is a major pain in the rear.
swfarrington
I think you have to look at the target market as well.
People who generally build machines these days do so because they want specific hardware in them - possible a sweeping statement, but probably not by much. Again, generalising, those people will be building higher spec'd machines that what is a basic office machine.
So whilst Axeboy has demonstrated that you could get components to come in at roughly the same price (ignoring the OS as per his and Spannerzone's comments) in practice would anyone do this? I doubt its worth the cost saving (if any) or the time.
For a basic office machine, the specs are fine and chances are someone buying this system just wants it to replace an outdated machine with as little faff as possible; certainly not to build one!
All good points, in fact I used to build my own for those very reasons but once it dawned on me that a Dell for £250 to £350 would suit my needs I never bothered building my own again. Sure I add memory and SSD's but there's absolutely no point for me in wasting time building a machine when these prebuilt ones work fine for my needs. I don't game so that probably makes a big difference of course.

no problems with key pad and touch functionality on screen is good just charged it after two days of light use, I couldn't complain about the screen and it's angles also the sound wasn't bad for such a slim design, yes you get 1yr return to Base or 49 for home repair, the outlet offers regularly change between free delivery or increased warranty cover.

Do you find the screen brightness a bit low? I was comparing it to the lenovo with both on maximum settings in the store and the dell screen brightness seems a bit too low for my living. I felt like I was straining my eyes to read what was on the screen. Bitterly disappointed :(

Voted cold because I'd have to order from the Dell site (and its a Dell)
You've got me scared now. What is your experience of dell? I've never bought anything from them before but I have read some bad reviews about their customer service when things go wrong! Oh and there's a 1x1* review on the john lewis website for this!
hi blue I got the I5 8gb 256gb version from the outlet pre blackfriday for under 500 quid my wife loves it we have had all of our machines from the outlet on a couple of occasions where theirs been a fault the repairs have been great. people are anti dell occasionally here as their site can be a bit random spec wise and pricing can be irregular ie better component in same she'll costing less than a lesser model also if buying from the outlet seriously consider a scratch and dent out of the last three we have had only one has had the minutist of a scratch to the plastic never the screen

I Neil, thanks for the reply. Good to hear from someone who actually has the machine. Have you had any problem with the touch pad or keyboard and is the screen good to use in terms of viewing angle etc etc? I read a few reviews online that said the screen wasn't bright enough and the viewing angles were poor etc etc. Good to know about the scratch and dent reality. Finally, if you do buy from the outlet, do you still get a 1 year warranty?

Those specs are quite beefy. Maybe try get the i5 dell xps 13 kaby lake for £800~ off dell outlet? You sacrifice ram and the i7 for an immaculate screen and build quality.

I had a look on the store - couldn't see that one? I had a look at the xps in store though and I didn't like the QHD+. The scaling is really messed up so i'm sticking with 1080p I think. Will try find the one you suggested again.



it appears on outlet a couple of times a week - people snap them up real fast due to excess demand. just check regularly around 8pm and you'll see it appear one day.

The case is plastic and wears rapidly on either side of the trackpad where your palms rest. The plastic becomes rough, looks dirty and is just poor. I know - I own one.
They also heat up and when they do the fan comes on but seems to have a tough time cooling the device. The battery loses its life pretty rapidly despite numerous attempts at recalibrating it. I am lucky to get 2 hours, sometimes 3.
The screen is very good though.

I checked out this machine in John Lewis today. Felt quite cheap compared to my unibody macbook pro and the screen wasn't bright enough. I gave the xps 13" another look and the full HD one was quite nice. I didn't like the QHD+ one, but the FHD one is better in my opinion. No scaling issues as with the QHD+ and an added bonus of a much improved battery life due to a less dense screen!

Really needs a 970m at this price imo.
A bit unrealistic for £800 in my opinion.
Not really. See links provided by Salfordgirl1.
Yes really, they aren't £800 and they are budget brands. You aren't going to find a 1060m for £800 on a premium brand laptop.
People always comment to spend more but if your budget is £800 then this is one of the better deals you can find at the moment.

That's why I said "Really needs a 970m at this price imo."

I didn't say it should have a 1060 as I factored the brand bit into the equation.

The problem is, it's not a cheap alternative. It's more expensive, has a poorer CPU, has less RAM, has no SSD, weighs a lot more. Your comment about the 17 inch screen not being moved around, thats precisely because a 17 inch laptop that weight over 3.5kg is going to be a headache to carry around. The OP laptop is a 15 inch model that weighs 2.6kg, something that is going to be a lot more comfortable to carry around.

A true like for like alternative (same CPU, RAM, storage, size, weight) is this https://www.scan.co.uk/products/black-friday-156-gigabyte-p55w-v6-cf1-fhd-i7-6700hq-16gb-ram-256gb-m2-ssdplus1tb-hdd-6gb-gtx-1060-dv but as you can see is 55% more expensive. Getting a decent 1060m laptop just now is going to cost a whole lot more. Yes you could argue 55% more expensive for 300% more performance, but the jump from paying £800 to £1249 isn't insignificant.
Both good arguments there, but I guess its all down to people's budget.

In reality you get what pay for.

Might be worth waiting to see if any bargains pop up on the outlet site.

dell logoDell – Building PCs to Order Since 1984

The brainchild of teenage computer geek and now billionaire entrepreneur Michael Dell, Dell Computer Corporation began operating its direct sales business out of a University of Texas student dorm room in 1984 and had already amassed millions in profit in its first 12 months. Thanks to having significantly lower operating costs compared to their competitors and expansion into the server market, Dell enjoyed steady growth year on year to become the top PC manufacturer by the turn of the millennium.

Dell’s Online Shop and Outlet

Nowadays, Dell sells all sorts of computing systems, peripherals, and consumer devices direct to the public from its website at www.dell.co.uk or by contacting a Dell sales expert on 0844 4444699. Pre-assembled and refurbished desktops and laptops are available from the Dell Outlet. Other online retailers like Amazon UK, John Lewis, Curry, Very can be found on the Find a retailer page. Online orders made on dell.co.uk are powered by the VeriSign Checkmark via Norton Secured, meaning you can be confident your payment details and other sensitive information are protected as you go through the checkout process.

Regular Deals from Dell

Dell displays deals on its website via the Deals page and Outlet section, where you can grab discounted computers if you are willing to accept their pre-built, uncustomisable technical specifications. Dell also advertises weekend, monthly, and seasonal clearance sales throughout the year as well as the big annual Dell Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale that you’ll see advertised almost immediately following the previous year’s event has finished.

Ordering Products on dell.co.uk

New customers can complete the checkout process without creating an account, although there is an option to do so if you wish. The benefits of having an account with Dell mean faster order status checking and support options that are easier to find thanks to being linked to your purchased devices.

Dell – Accepted Payment Options

Dell will accept the following payment options for online orders placed by home customers: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Maestro, and PayPal. Dell is much more flexible if you are a business customer, however, giving you the option to pay via Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Maestro cards, PayPal, bitcoin, Dell Financial Services, or opt to receive an invoice for your order.

Dell – Shipping Policy

Simply put, buy a Dell Inspiron or XPS laptop or desktop and it will delivered to you free of charge. Otherwise, if you buy a pre-built system or other device from Dell, the shipping cost is usually included in the final price and it will be sent the next business day, which means getting the product in your hands in just a couple of days. Custom-built systems will need a few more days to go from factory to your doorstep; Dell estimate around 4 to 5 days depending on your location. But keep in mind that this doesn’t factor in the time it takes Dell to build your unique system.

Cancellations and Returns at dell.co.uk

If you change your mind about a purchase, Dell gives you 14 calendar days to cancel your order, starting from the day after you receive your order confirmation or from the day you receive the product; whichever is later. Likewise, if you receive the wrong product or the product arrives damaged, the same 14 calendar day cooling off period applies to return requests. Service and software cancellations and returns work a little differently, with pro-rata refunds given for services used within the returns period and software returns only given if you haven’t started using it already.

To make a cancellation or returns request, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Product Support page.
  2. Enter your order number in the space provided and click “Submit“.
  3. To cancel an order, select the option to make your return request. Note that if your order shows the status as “In production” or “Shipped” then you won’t be able to cancel it.
  4. To return an order, select the option “Return an Item/Order“ and fill in all your information on the next page, which will be sent to the Dell e-mail customer support team.
  5. Dell will then contact you with details on how to proceed with the cancellation or return, including details such as any applicable collection dates and return shipping costs.

Unless your product arrives damaged or the product is not what you ordered, then you have to pay £20 excl. VAT to pay for collection of desktops and laptops and £10 excl. VAT for electronics, printers, and accessories. You can expect to get your refund within 14 calendar days from the day Dell receive your cancellation or return request.
