Build quality of the G3 is not as good as the G5 and G7. It has quite a bendy lid.

Is 900 quid not a good price though?

It's great price for the kit, anything under £1k isn't going to have the best build quality.
Dell charging apple prices without the build quality to match? Madness!

Depends upon whether it has the 1x1 or 2x2 Wi-Fi card, and personally, as it's a laptop, I would probably be opening and closing the lid several times a day, and over time this would weaken the lid. Dell only offer 1yr standard warranty, so it's up to you if you want to go for it or not. Why not wait for the next Dell sale and opt for a G5 or G7? The decision can only be made by yourself, but having examined quite a few Dell laptops in various shops, I prefer the G5 and G7 to the G3 as they have hinges at both ends of the case, rather than a larger single hinge in the middle of the case like the G3 has. Go and examine some in the shops before you make a decision.

I have a G3 that I purchased last year and I don't find it to be poor quality at all.

The entire shell is made out of plastic but I don't find it 'bendy'. But then I'm not sat there trying to snap it in half.

I find it to be perfectly fine. Just like any other expensive electronic item, just look after it and it will last a long time.

I didn't say it was entirely poor quality, just that the G5 and G7 in my opinion are better. As long as you are happy that's the main thing.
cashback should never be included with deal price
I really don't get the cold votes, find a better spec brand new for 900 quid, baffled

Apple aren't worth their prices, regardless of build quality.

If they aren't worth their prices, they would've been bankrupt and not a trillion dollar company.

Show me a comparably specced Macbook for this money then?
DELL G3 has big problems with BIOS. It only works correctly on old version BIOS ver 1.6 .... You have to downgraded it! POOR!!
