Until now the outlet was ruled by people using automated scripts to hoover up all the cheap bargains before they even landed on the pages, well thats all changed now as Dell have introduced measures to combat the practice.

Lots of good value high end Desktops just sitting there today.

Plenty of high end notebooks too so go take a look.

link fixed thanks.

Did my link work MikeT? I noticed you'd linked to the Finnish site or something like that!
[mod]#3
I didnt try yours neil, I was being lazy and letting our software do an auto link but it obviously didnt work so I set my own from the dell site, but thanks for the heads up as its not always possible to check your own links, what works for the poster may not for others.
Some good bargains available today.

Must still be some hoovers out there - cheapest inspiron 6400 dual core with only 60GB HDD and I gid ram was £411 plus shipping !
[mod]#5
Well its been open all night and I went to sleep so we are a few hrs late in starting, there are plenty of items to choose from though.
You still have to be choosy on what you go for as some of the pricing matches the main site!
Lots of XPS kit today.
It should mean that when dell drop a load of now kit on the site that it does actually remain there long enough for you to quickly buy it, or at least put it in your basket while you think about it.
Previously you never even got to see the good stuff.

Only 1 problem with this discount...it doesnt show on the outlet cart page so no box to tick:w00t:
[mod]#8
My suggestion would be to buy the kit and email the outlet team later this morning asking them to remove the amount from the deal.
If for some reason you change your mind and dont want to proceed with the deal, you can easily cancel an order by email to the outlet team who are UK based.

Nice post. Shame I couldn't find any bargains left. :(

The outlet is updated daily with new kit so I suggest taking a look several times a day if you are after something specific.

How do these deals compare to the ones on their store on ebay
Are their eBay deals completely different machines to the ones on their own website?

The ebay deals are mostly scratched and dented units and are not the same systems as listed here.
Ebay links not alowed on HUKD btw.

The Bottom Line Since you will be unable to get some needed parts for Dell computers without purchasing through Dell, AVOID at all cost.

It all seems empty now...

Woah - I wondered what had happened to the Outlet, I assumed Dell had just decided not to sell their systems that way.

Mike, I really hate you and want to give you negative rep for this deal - I've just ordered an XPS M1710 (1,700 from the main site) for a grand after promising myself I wouldn't buy a new machine until the mobile 8800 was out :(

At least I have seven days to change my mind...

Laptops by their nature have to use proprietary parts otherwise they would be unable to make them as small and light.

Having worked with Dells for many years (its the standard machine for my current company and previous ones also used them) I disagree with your implication that Dells are unfixable out of warranty. In fact, I would say out of most of the brands Dells are actually the easiest to service and repair. I don't know of any other company that supplies full service manuals with detailed images for all their machines completely free of charge.

Their machines also tend to be built to be easy to service, an easy example is to look on the underside of the laptop - you'll see various parts marked with different letters, each one pops open to give you access to a different part. Need access to the hard drive? Two screws and it slides out. How about ram? Another two screws and the spring loaded hatch opens. Mini-pci wireless card? Same again. Even more major repairs like taking the screen assembly apart are quite easy to do. I've worked with some laptops from other brands and they can be a complete nightmare to work, I have a Toshiba here which only gives ready access to the ram...anything else and you need to take the whole casing apart.

As a large company, it's not that hard to get a hold of parts either - I have two old Latitude C400s sitting here, one as a laptop and one as a media pc/server. Both were destined for the bin as neither worked but I've dismantled both of them, swapped parts as needed and I have two working machines. I've tried to do this twice before with a Sony and then a Toshiba laptop, I didn't get anywhere as I couldn't get parts and I had difficulty getting them cracked open to try and sort them out.

Mike - I am rapidly approaching my entry in the market for a replacment PC. Your one sounds ideal ... was this a one-off bargain or are there likely to be regular re-occurances of deals like the one you got?
#26
£535 for Dimension 9200, Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 (2.66GHz, 1066MHz, 4MB), English Windows Vista Home Premium, 2048MB DDR2 533 [2*1024], 2x250gb HDD, 768MB nVidia GeForce 8800 GTX

If I wasn't so poor I'd buy that, because it's ridiculously cheap (to put it in perspective, the graphics card is worth £300 alone).

I dont think mine was exceptional, there were several there at 6:30am

What you must realise is that people can and do put them into baskets while they consider the purchase, they may even have 5 in a basket and buy just the best deal, the others then will reappear on the outlet so its pot luck as to finding a bargain right away. Keep an eye on it and it should give you what your looking for.

The 6400s are better priced in Mikes other deals!

Laptops by their nature have to use proprietary parts otherwise they would be unable to make them as small and light...

For laptops I tend to agree, parts are proprietary. Even so I know a friend who has a Dell laptop, and it came with a proprietary 3 pin charger plug. He could not get a charger anywhere, and when he did find one, it cost him £50 and then it would only power the laptop and not charge it. I have a HP, a Gericom and a Targa, and they all work from my £8 universal car charger.

As far as desktops are concerened, if you read one of the articles (they are all other people's opinions not mine, I am just going by what I found) you will see that the ATX power supply has been modified. A normal ATX replacement will fit, but it will fry the motherboard unless you know about it and buy one of these:
http://www.endpcnoise.com/e/images/items/dellconverter.jpg

So Dell's may be OK for some people if you just use them and bin them, but those articles, and others, have put me off Dell completely.

Dell use normal ATX Power Supplies and have done for several years now. My Dell laptop I bought last year uses a standard round power plug.

When you add a machine to your basket go to the basket and there will be a list of options one will be the discount, tick this update basket and the discount will be there.

To get a better spec list for a machine click on the id in the first column which will open a new window with the better spec list.

Mike, Not sure if this is the place to post, but I'm after a laptop for the missus, now she'll basically use it for the essentials, surfing, word processing, budgeting etc, whereas I'm a little keener to play a few games on it while away from home.

What kind of spec or things should I be looking for? as although I'm good on computers I have little knowledge of specs required for various applications.


Its best if you make a post in deal requests, more people will see it there and it wont detract from this threads purpose. Thanks.

Dell use normal ATX Power Supplies and have done for several years now. My Dell laptop I bought last year uses a standard round power plug.


Have a closer look at the round power plug, and you will see a centre pin.

Dell was fed up with people blowing up their laptops with cheap PSU, introduced a means for the laptop to verify that the PSU was genuine (via this centre pin).
Unfortunately the connector is poorly designed (surface mounted with no through the board supports) and if the connection is flakey at all, the laptop does not recognise the PSU and runs at half speed and refuses to charge the battery!

This can be fixed by resoldering the connector,but on my Latitude D600 you need to take the whole laptop apart to get at the underside of the PCB.

This discount is for use only on the dell outlet, once you save a unit to your basket its visable and you tick a box to get the discount off your order before you finally checkout.
