(also as cheap as £450 deld with Core 2 Duo 1.8. or £491.30 with the 1.8 and 3 year warranty). The Core 2 2Ghz is recommended for Blu-Ray. Cyberlink list the 1.8 as the minimum. However using a CoreAVC 'worlds fastest non hardware' based decoder instead should cope more than easily.

Henry Ford certainly never said "Any customer can have it painted any colour that he wants so long as it is not black'".

Original Poster

To get the price select your colour(not black) and the extra items as well as the CPU upgrade.
This gets the £599 15% discount code qualifying mark as well as free delivery.

cheap for a blu-ray system, what does it come to if you delete the drive though

Original Poster

£420 without the Blu-Ray. (no 15% discount sensibly available)

Shame it has such a bad graphics card though... Great specs and price is you plan to play no games!

thnx. pointless without the drive really.

I've never liked dell, can imagine it'll be pay back time when something goes wrong and will need to try and speak to the customer services based in India (as I was told). Prices are cheap offering high value in money, but the quality is also cheap in my opinon.

How the F*** can this be compatible with HD level stuff when the graphics card is so ******

I had a problem with a laptop that I bought from the Dell Outlet and their Tech Support and Customer Services were very good. They came the next day and swapped out the faulty RAM stick. I prefer buying their products which have on-site warranties as there’s no waiting around for pickup and return.

Put the 160GB 7200rpm hard drive. It's only 15 quid more but it sooo much better than the standard offering its a sure go!

You don’t need anything special from your VGA card for HD playback if you’re CPU is fast enough which for this system is borderline. I think it would struggle with a 30Mbit Blu-ray disk.

any ideas what the blu ray drive would cost to buy seperately,ive got an xps m1710 and would love a blu ray drive

Is there an option to add HD-DVD ???

Because BD-ROM drives for laptops are so expensive I guess this gives the impression of being good value.

I’d be wary of using a 2GHz laptop with 667MHz RAM and no HD decoding support from the graphics for Blu-ray playback. My C2D desktop with faster RAM averages about 1.5GHz of CPU usage playing back an AVC encoded HD-DVD disc of ~22Mbs when I disable hardware support from the VGA card. When I enable it the CPU loads drops to 400MHz. With a higher bit rate disc or a H.264 encoded discs you might well start seeing glitching.

Pop into Tesco and you will be able to view the 250GB Inspiron 1525 without Blu-Ray. (sells at pretty much the same price.)

And will there be a UMD and Mini disc also available at this price?.:p

If your deal gets member spammed or expired, use the report button to get a mod to deal with it. Do not start another thread for the same kit.

Have to disagree, when my Vostro refused to acknowledge it had a DVD drive after locking up, contacted Dell customer services who tried to sort out remotely whilst online, then decided the drive was faulty, replacement arrived next day, fixed excellent service.

I was gonna go for this great offer, but its been let down by its lack of gfx card upgrade. Its pointless having a blueray drive with a slow gfx card. Whats the point of having nice laptop colours if the laptop is missing some of the most needed components. I've gone for the vostro which has cost me £391 and includes a nvidia 8400m gs card, 1yr accident cover, webcam and 2gb memory stick.

Sorry but this is not a good deal in light of some of the others that have been posted. Looks full price in my opinion for a dell (although I apppreciate blueray drives are expensive).

This Laptop has only a BluRay Rom which means it does not allow recording to buray, wait a year with bluray recordable drives....

Can you provide more details of the spec which you have ordered? Thanks!

Pros and Cons.

Its not a gaming laptop of course, but is most likely the cheapest Blu-Ray laptop available in the UK.
The bonus is the HDMI output as well. It was a complete cock up by Dell to leave our DVI and HDMI on the new Vostros.

does this definitely have a HDMI output?

Because it's POINTLESS to have blueray on a 15 inch notebook screen.

No that much different from watching a big screen from 10' away. Just no 'awe factor'. Maybe one day we will watch movies on dual HD 1" screens built into glasses frames.

I second that - I've had excellent customer service from Dell.

looks like a real good deal. but i personally wouldn't go for this because there is no point in just having a blu-ray drive without it being a writer. there would be no point if you already own a ps3/blu-ray player. but if you don't own them this is a pretty good deal. although this is a much better deal than the sony blu-ray laptops!

Original Poster

No point in having a Blu-Ray writer yet. Unless you are happy paying £8 to £11 per single disk.

Slot in blu-ray drives for laptops (readers) cost about £180 each minimum.

I'm holding out for Video2000:w00t:

this laptop will allow me to connect to my wireless internet set up at home right? no extras needed?
