Look like a great laptop but still seems like a lot of money. Not saying it's cold. I saw an 8th gen i7 Lenovo at PC World product code 216076
pcworld.co.uk/gbu…tml

Although I know that ASUS components are amongst the best available.
Really like this range but it’s a bit much given it’s only got a 7th gen cpu.
Expensive for what you are getting.
Keep an eye on Amazon warehouse guys. I managed to snag an XPS 13 with 8th Gen i7 processor (8gb, 256gb, fhd model) for 830 the other week - was brand new with seals intact. Amazing laptop too. Do keep an eye out as they become available every few weeks if interested.
That is sooooo expensive. How possible is that people voted heat!! you can buy a 8th gen i7 with same spec or even better.

Would that not be a plastic pig though? I think the Zenbook is a metal premium model, a bit like a MacBook? Could be wrong.

Whilst it may be the case that there are deals sometimes to be had on Amazon Warehouse in terms of product cost, I do have two huge reservations about buying anything from them.

The first is a real biggie and it's this:

"Due to the unique nature of each Amazon Warehouse Deals item, we unfortunately will be unable to replace any item.

Please note that used products are not covered by the original manufacturer's warranty.

If a product becomes defective after 30 days you won't be able to return it using our online return centre. You may wish to visit the manufacturer's website or contact them directly as they may be able to offer troubleshooting and support with the issue you have with the product."


So in your case you have a brand new laptop for a good price but you effectively have a guaranteed warranty of 30 days. Any issue after that time and you will be reliant on the good graces of Amazon or Dell to aid you. I would hold out more hope that Amazon will do something for you but, for my part, if I were laying out the thick end of a grand on some electronic item such as a laptop (and I soon will be) I'd want more than a months warranty on it.

If I were buying a non-new Dell (and I won't be doing so anytime soon having dealt with them recently and found them to be dreadful) then I would go via their outlet because they provide a 12 month warranty on what they sell.

The other issue I have with the Warehouse "deals" is that many of them are far from it. Current real-life example? Sure. ASUS ROG Strix GL702VM-GC182T, brand new, 2yrs manufacturers warranty, £1,282.16. Warehouse "deal" price for exactly the same item? £1,230.87 Really, Amazon? Gee, thanks. Fifty two quid - a gnat's over 4% - off in exchange for twenty three months warranty? In my book that's absolutely taking the f in p.

Let's take another example. ASUS GL502VM-FY172T 15.6-inch Full HD Gaming Laptop (Titanium). New price, £1,349.97. Warehouse price, £1,229.43. £120, or about 9% off. Sounds better, doesn't it? But look closer. That's less than 10% off a used item in this instance, not an open or mere damaged box return. There's another you can have for 40 quid more which is "As new", but that will cost another £40, so the reduction is now down to £80, or 6% and the sacrifice of 23 months warranty.

And that, quite frankly, is just garbage. That's thirteen hundred quid items being discounted by single figure percentages - some ridiculously with low single figures to boot - and being sold with less warranty than a lot of established Ebay and Amazon third party sellers are offering. Good luck with your XPS, I hope it gives you years of trouble free use but I caution the unwary about Warehouse for the above reasons. Also they seem to be offloading 6th gen processor machines in the guise of bargains. Maybe they are but do your research before buying one, assuming you fancy the warranty lottery.

Very informative post and you're quite right about some of the rubbish reductions AW offer but, as mentioned, keep an eye out if interested as every so often there can be major reductions on price.

However, despite amazon stating 30 day returns, they do offer up to 2 year returns if a product becomes faulty. I know this since I returned a 15 month old Surface tablet late last year which could not be repaired and was fully refunded by Amazon. I have also returned the odd item within a year (from warehouse) without any issue at all from Amazon chat once mentioning the issue I was experiencing. Only slight issue was I had to organise my own delivery to their warehouse to be sure it was fully insured for the Surface but this was also fully refunded once I uploaded proof of posting to them. Hope it helps someone.
