Some items on Dell outlet are used/refurbished. This one specifically says New Unused Product.

Working on the link....

The codes on the Dell Outlet are normally generated on an ad-hoc basis and are 1 time use only. Unless this is something different, then it may not apply to all?

love these laptops. have the xps 15 and wouldn't mind the smaller one for more general use.. tempted

Dual core processor (with only 4MB Cache) + 4 cell battery + no dedicated graphic card + no optical drive = top of the range??

Laptop CPUs do not get any higher than this for the size and practicality. If your looking for a top spec notebook then your going to live to cope with lugging a 4kg machine around with a heavier battery life, optical drive (who uses these) and a dedicated GPU.

I dont think you can get higher spec laptop for the size of these ultrabook.
Your paying high end prices more for the screen as its almost a 4k res for a 13.3" screen.

I don't see how this is a deal. £800 for Inspiron 15 7559, 1080p, i7-6700HQ, 8gb Ram, nVidia 960m at Curry's .... actually you can get 10% cash back as well so would make it £720

size, weight and the fact its an ultra book with a edge to edge display for starters.

You can't compare the quality of a XPS range to an Inspiron...

I would love to be able to justify one of these. Sadly you should be prepared for the army of people who don't understand why a laptop can cost more than £300 and only come here for the fish finger deals.

Oh and those that will scoff at an i7 not being a quad core who don't understand how the intel nomenclature works.

So all I ask of people before they hit that cold button is to stop and think is that alternative you think is a better deal a touchscreen, premium built ultrabook, with a QHD+ display and a 512gb PCIe based solid state storage or is it actually inferior in some respect which is why it's cheaper?

That's a good deal for a completely different category of device but it's not a touchscreen, it's only 1080p, it's half the ram and it's mechanical storage not PCIe based solid state. It's also not even close in build quality and design.

As stunning as the touch version is I went Matte full HD instead.

Battery life is super, gets more run-time then the glossy touch screen.

First Windows laptop I've not had battery life anxiety, I can happily take it out without the charger.

yeah. you have a good point

Not sure about these. My daughters partner bought one last week, it's not been running for more than 30 minutes before falling over. They sent a usb stick out with the upgrade to Windows 10, now it falls over every 3 minutes! We've even seen the BSOD, which I thought wasn't possible with W10... Dell are sending an engineer out tomorrow to change the motherboard!!!!

I have one of these, microsoft signature series it came without any Dell bloatware, but the first month I had to install a couple of the "Dell Utilities" to keep the drivers up todate, after the bluetooth stopped working. But still a good machine with 8 hours of usable battery life, stunning display, and can handle cad software without a problem.
Needs an adapter to use an ethernet cable.

The amount of refurb units you see from Dell and it's partners points towards the amount of issues they do tend to face. Once the gremlins of a new unit are worked out you tend to be pretty much set though the initial inconvenience is never pleasant.

I have a refurbished Dell Venue 11. The first unit I got wouldn't work with keyboard docks. Then when that was replaced I found the battery on the keyboard dock didn't work. But once it was all finally sorted I've got a problem free well built device.

It will be a business decision by dell that dealing with warranty problems and then selling units as refurbished is more cost effective than stringent quality control. Not great if you're on the receiving end of a shoddy brand new unit.

But chances are with a unit like this as it's a brand new unused unit it's probably had a once over check when it's been returned and been checked more thoroughly than an actual new model.

Note that this is not the top of the line specification.

Top spec has i7-6560u which has IRIS-540 graphics instead of Intel HD 520 - a far more tempting ownership proposition.

Be careful when ordering from the Outlet that you check the specs very careful before hitting the buy button - it is easy to order without realising that a part of spec is not as you think it is (particularly if selecting one of 8 on screen at the time) - my Inspiron 15 7559 didn't have a backlit keyboard - gutted, but my fault as I didn't spot it was missing from the spec list.

Have ordered 5 different machines from the outlet - only had a problem with one which was eventually resolved after several visits from an engineer and sending the laptop away for repair.

Yeah this is the one I wanted but they don't offer the option on the higher spec machines! stupid as it would be the one laptop that would bring me back from Mac (I'd install Linux on it as was looking at the developer edition). Battery and Matte over fancy screen anyday.......it still annoys me Mac don't do Matte anymore!

LOL. That's a 2.7kg 15.6" brick. The XPS13 is a 1.2kg ultraportable with a 13.3" screen in a 11.6" form factor.

The spanner count is high on here today! X)

Quite a lot of the stock in the DELL outlet store is there because DELL make to order so if someone orders and cancels after the machine is built but before it's sent out then it ends up here.

Since DELL did a 10% across the board price hike I think they have become a touch overpriced for what they offer. I'm looking at the lenovo 710s at the moment which I (personally) think offers a better deal.

For that price wheres the GPU?

I don't know where is the Brand new i7, 16gb RAM, 512gb PCIe storage, QHD+ touchscreen ultrabook that comes even close to the compactness and high end quality of this device at this price with a GPU included?

I'll give you a clue, it doesn't exist. In fact in trying to make sure I can't be proven wrong and seeing the prices for similar spec devices to this I've nearly convinced myself to buy one.

Not sure what GPU this one uses but the recent versions of the XPS13 use the Iris 540 and that offers performance somewhere between the Geforce 920 and 940. Obviously not a gaming machine but you'll be able to play slightly older titles eg. Skyrim on that sort of setup without any problem.

Obviously a bit different. not 13inch. and it's refurbished. But you do get 1 years Dell Warranty and a much better CPU, but then with all the same specs with a mid range GPU right here

Not bad. Dell actually have new Dell XPS 15's on their outlet as well with a Geforce 960m which also look a tempting proposition, though they sacrifice the full solid state storage for a 32gb mSata (enough for Windows to be isntalled on) and a 1tb mechanical drive.

I personally have a desktop gaming rig though so I wouldn't want a big laptop even though by 15" standards the XPS is relatively compact it's still bigger than my needs.

Too expensive the cpu in that is way too slow, even though it's an i7, and i7-3720qm in a Dell e6430 is twice as fast and it's about £300 one eBay

This is the only Windows laptop I would consider using, and I've tried all of the top end ones (via work)
