This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This seemed like a fair deal for a 17" budget laptop, but am happy to be put right...!

Use the code to get the price down.

Features & Design tab on Dell website suggests it's IPS. Under Tech Specs & Customisation tab it seems to confirm this. Their WVA specs say 127ppi, viewing angle 80 degrees, response time 35ms max, link here:

dell.com/sup…03&

Also has an optical drive for those of us still stuck in the past

Think deal runs out tonight...

I'm writing this on a 9 year old DELL XPS 15 which has only given me problems recently in that I can't get drivers for more and more of the hardware.Certainly more reliable than any Acer I've ever had!

Your millage may vary, I'm on my second Dell laptop with no issues, one is a 15" Inspiron Core i5 3rd gen and second is a 17" Inspiron Core i5 8th gen.

This looks like a good deal to me.

Indeed, I have previously had 2 iMacs that both failed after a few years (one was a display issue and the other was DVD drive & overheating GPU) but I wouldn't say that is representative of iMacs as a whole although it did personally put me off buying a third

Maybe I've just been unlucky? I bought a 17'' i7 and its absolute trash. Runs like an i3 from 2010 and that's after swapping the HDD to and SSD
For 17” is amazing

My advice would be to stick to the Latitude range. They mature/age gracefully. At least if you've purchased them in reasonably good shape originally.

You can't really go wrong swapping as long as it works big shot
I still rock a Dell Vostro 1700, upgraded to 16GB and an SSD and it flies with Windows 10. Not bad for a 12 year old tank! Cpu is now the limitation (C2D)
Not very computer literate, what's peoples opinions on the specs, is it any good?
hot
Would this run Autocad?
£649
it would struggle. Could view files, but any attempt at using Autocad would be painful. Look for a dedicated graphics card. Can probably just about manage something for around this price, I’m personally looking for an autocad laptop and I’m looking at refurbed a MacBook Pro for about this price.

Not IPS screen
If this was IPS i was going to buy it. Sad that isnt.
Looks okay, minus the TN screen.

On a sidenote, does anyone know whether a laptop that is charged via Type-C USB, has a 1080p IPS screen, and 8th gen Intel i5 or better even exists under 500gbp?
‘Stunning screen: Up to Full HD panel with IPS technology for on-screen images that are crisp from nearly any angle’
So it’s a TN screen with IPS technology?
Quick question, I just bought a inspiron 15 gaming 7567 i5 8gb laptop reduced at John Lewis to £425 (without a charger).
Not sure if I got a good deal? e.g Does it matter if it’s 6th gen i5?
Should I return it and buy this one? Was hoping to use the laptop for some video editing if poss but don’t have much cash to spend.
capa22/01/2020 17:37

To add to the other person's comment, this would struggle a bit to do much substantial work in AutoCAD, especially when running more intense tasks.

Dedicated GPU would help for sure, and you really want something with more RAM (16 GB + would be fantastic) and an i7 or the new Ryzen 4000 series CPU laptops coming out in a few months

6th gen i5? Yeah that sounds pretty outdated, especially for video editing!
hmm this or my cyrix 6x86
Are there any sub £500 laptops that would run Autocad?
capa22/01/2020 21:29

Are there any sub £500 laptops that would run Autocad?


Run? Yes. Use effectively without going into meltdown or crashing? You'll struggle, especially when modelling more complex things.

Hate to say it but AutoCAD is power hungry, needs more expensive equipment (although the £3k workstations you'll see advertised when searching CAD workstations are way way waaaayy over the top for most). Probably looking at £650-900 or something decent enough?
Yeah read that Dell compromise on the motherboard and VRM. So despite having decent cooling they underperform.

I don't know what you are smoking. Dell is leader when it comes to making desktop and laptop. Acer is nowhere compared to Dell. I am using a Dell 7559 for over 5 years now without any issues.

Second hand, yeah. I'm selling mine, with SSD and dedicated GPU. New? Nah, unless you want to wait a lot.

I bought a Dell some 6 years ago, directly from Dell themselves. It had some issue with software (possibly BIOS) straight off the back meaning it would take 30 minutes to turn off. I bought a Dell from John Lewis 3 years ago. Computer was extremely slow straight away and the start-up would take ages. After swapping the HDD for an SSD, speed has improved on start-up but applications are often laggy. Even using the internet is a pain if you've got more than three tabs open. Bear in mind that this thing is supposed to have an i7 processor and dedicated graphics. Now, after only three years, the fan is essentially dead and sounds like a jet engine grinding against metal. So my apologies if I don't love Dell's amazing products.

The build quality is also pretty bad. Even low end laptops are now coming with metal lids, small bezels and a sturdy chassis. However Dell seem to still be using decade old chassis and just trying to fit more modern components into it to save a couple of pounds. Why does this thing even have a disc drive? who uses discs in a computer in 2020? all software, and music is in the cloud, online or a download. You know why? becuase this is probably what they were using to build them years ago. I mean, look at the bezels. I'm not asking for MacBook Pro aesthetics but what even is that. No matter what the 'specs' are, the Dell always looks the cheapest in the room.

If you had these issues at the beginning then why didn't you send them back? I wouldn't keep on to them, let alone upgrade the HDD myself.

I've had historical issues with Acer and Asus, so I actively avoid them, and will be going for Dell this time round as they have decent deals on their Outlet. Let's see, eh.

The first laptop I sent back straight away.With the second, I assumed it was just updates installing etc... By time I realsied the laptop was no good, all the specialist softwares I needed had already been installed and I needed it to work. I couldn't afford to waste more time. Like I said, the fan issue happened after a few months. Everybody has different experiences. In mine, Dell aren't any good.
