I'm after a bit of advice before purchasing a Dell XPS 1530 from either the Dell website or Curry's/PC World.
I was about to purchase a Dell XPS 1530 from the official Dell website, but stumbled across, what looks like a far superior spec Dell XPS 1530 from Curry's/PC World, for not alot more dosh!
The specs on the Dell website are very comprehensive, whereas the specs on the Curry's/PC World site are basic to say the least!
Anyhow, the specs and prices for the two laptops are as follows:
Dell XPS M1530 from Dell (£649):
Intel® Core 2 Duo Processor T5800 (2.00GHz, 800Mhz FSB, 2MB cache)
Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium SP1- English
15.4" Widescreen WXGA (1280x800) TFT Display (220nits) with TrueLife
NVIDIA® GeForce Go 8600M GT with 256MB dedicated graphic memory
3072MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [1x2048+1x1024]
250GB (5400RPM) SATA Hard Drive
Fixed 8x DVD+/-RW Slim Slot Load drive, including SW
1Yr XPS Premium Warranty Support - Priority Call In and Onsite Support
Dell XPS 1530 from Curry's (£699):
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7250
(2.0 GHz, 800 MHz, 2 MB Cache)
Genuine Windows Vista (R) Home Premium
4 GB Memory
250 GB Hard Drive
Blu-ray ReWriter drive
15.4" TrueLife Widescreen Display
nVidia GeForce 8600M GT Graphics Card
dedicated 256 MB Graphics Memory
As you can see from the specs the Curry's/PC World one has a Blue Ray, better Processor and a Gb more RAM. The only advantage the Dell one has appears to be the 1Yr premiumwarranty.
I just find it hard to believe that Currys/PC World can offer so much more for £50, especially as if I were to upgrade the first specs to the Curry's specs the laptop on the Dell site would cost in excess of £900!
Any help would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance
