Excellent price and find! Worth adding the 6 cell battery at £11 or so and longer battery life...

Thanks for this

Is the 6-cell battery any bigger than the 4-cell battery?

Thanks

top find. real bargain.

Amazing deal! That and XBOX today! Nice - good job I can resist xbox in the end!

Is it easy to upgrade this to 1gb and how much would it cost? Will go for XP pro and better battery I think! :grin:

Grab one of these quickly as its now on all the forums and dell will close it down soon. You can always cancel tomorrow if you change your mind so no reason to just think about it!

DO go through Quidco though for the cashback!!!!!

Should be able to get 4.5% cashback via Quidco too!

Excellent!

:thumbsup:

Touché Mike!

:grin:

Has anyone got the e-value code, I can't see the deal

Evalue is any-N09137 and remember to buy the bigger battery, quidco will pay for that

Thanks mjr600 :thumbsup: Was looking for a Labtop. The spec on this one is more than I expected for the price, so I placed my order.
Also voted on this deal 8-)

I know I keep harping on about it but DO please use Quidco as the more that do the better the dicsounts will be next month for all of us

Make a wee note in the first post Mikey - it's your privelege as a Mod. Add in the e-value code if you're there too... :thumbsup:

Hello Mike! Been hanging around for a bit and thought it was about time I registered!!:)

I think this is a stunning deal and around £100+ underpriced. Sold exactly the same spec for £489 delivered last week.

PS. You know my feelings on Quidco!!:lol:

Some people pay this much for graphics cards

Offer is now over I'm afraid, lets hope Dell honour these.

They used to let everything through but in the last 6 months or so they seem to have been getting a bit tougher.

Yeah expired...

Good luck and thanks again to mjr600 for the find!

fingers crossed, though they let my order through for the 'basic' 1300 misprice at £243 in july with free bag, so fingers crossed!

got my internet order receipt, waiting on my purchase order....

mjr600 duely rated and rep'd Well spotted!

anyone got their purchase orders yet and if so what time did you place ur internet order?

They will all be on hold now until they figure out if its going to cost them anything to honour them. If they were coming straight out without a hitch they would have been here by now, maybe the OP and a few quick adoptors will have had theirs already.

Oooo, you are pessimistic Mike, [SIZE="1"]but I agree!! :cry: [/SIZE]

Good to see there is progress in your order. Due to the lack of posts about this deal in various forums I get the impression that very few people have received the second email as yet. Still hoping though.....

Well folks thats me done, just checked and I'm packed/shipped with a Packing Slip to prove it.

Sorry if you don't get one, I guess that this was a DELL mistake after all, they do seem to keep making them and I'm sure there will be more in the future.

Over the last year in addition to this I've had some of the below £200 base systems which have been sold on at a small profit to workmates and best of all the £360 DELL W2600 widescreen monitor/tv at which I'm typing this.

Can't fault this company at all.

Fingers crossed for the rest of you :thumbsup:.

Excellent! Thanks for the updates guys. Hopefully everyone gets what they ordered!

Well as mjr600 was as far as I can see the originator of all the various forum threads on this deal he does deserve to get his order through. Well done sir!

I think he also stated that he quite rightly waited till he had confirmation that it was ordered before letting the cat out of the bag, so his slipped through before the alarm bells started ringing in India

Lets hope that after Mondays "shall we or shant we" Dell meeting we all get at least an email telling us if they are going to honour the deal or not.

I second that Mike for mjr600 and good luck everyone else too

Well, having been through all this before, I am reasonably confident of getting my order(s).:smile:

yeo dell do usually honour there mistakes as oggy said above iv`e also beeb through this before and i wish everyone else good luck as well .............oh and thx to the original poster
