I manged to get 16% off as i got student EPP and used a 10% code of got from this site.
but even when i asked for free 1 yr accidental cover(£35) they told me no, i mean im buying a £993 laptop and they wont give me something cheaper when it costs them nothing, thats a pisstake.

is it a decent offer and is there any way i could make them make it chaeper?

what? for a laptop?

Admittedly i think its expensive for what the op got but i cant imagine you got a laptop for £400 with blu ray drive built in!

Please feel free though to provide a link and make me look like a complete numpty! :)

whats OP mean?

well i got 26% off now, 16% off now and 10% back once i receive the system as i read a thread where you order it and then say you want to cancel so they give you money back, and thats exactly what happened. i made sure the 10% is legit and called 3 customer reps and they all said its in their computers and once i get the laptop, i get 10% back.

My overall price is £893.

Also, is yours a studio xps 16?

the RGBLED 1080p upgrade is £200 extra then the 720p and well worth it, best laptop screen around, im pretty much 100% sure, the colours are the best around and its bright.

plus i got a SSD option which was 128gb SSD for £100 for a 200mb/200mb SSD. HUKD had a deal for 64gb SSD for £147 and everyone loved it, this would be £270ish if bought otherwise and is twice as large.

i got a free a windows 7 upgrade, i have the new/better wireless card, the processor is better(as stated) and its new. I also dont use bluray as iv got it on my ps3.
Its a really good price for what i got. i wanted these upgrades and if bought seperately+your system, it would have cost more.

did you get a new studio xps 16 for £400? thats a good deal

i find dell wayyyyyy better then acer.
they are now mostly better built, the support is a lot better (iv had a dell and acer before), dell is cheaper and dell is custom buuilt.
