Sorry chaps but I must get through the updates, there are over 100 price changes for me to work through and check against previous spec/prices.
I will get to the laptops, in fact I will go list a couple of the cheapest now at under £350
Nat the PB machine gains on having a proper graphics acrd but wait till I get though the dells before you buy.

Excellent price for this :santa: Thanks Mike :santa:

I'm currently thinking about this as a budget PC. I'm just wondering if I am likely to see a better price for a similar spec in the following weeks?

This ecode is now well below any previous listed price so I doubt it will drop much more, it has the bonus of a cheap £11 path to Vista Premium too. The printer option has now been removed though.

I doubt even Dell know what the prices will be like in coming weeks, so I have no chance of knowing ;-)

Ordered on 27th.. Still in pre-production.. come on mr dell.

Now 4th Jan costs £448.99

Mine strangely went pre-prod, prod, delivery all on the same day. Due to arrive tomorrow. Phone mix-up with courier so didn't get it today

Love the packing list. 1 - Modem Not Included, 1 Vista logo ....

Glad I did order last week now.
