Dell Inspiron 1564 i3-330M (2.13Ghz, 3GB, 250GB) £449 delivered

Found 19th Jan 2010
Saw this advertised in the sun today, if the deal button doesn't work -> go to and type in N0056401 in the search box.

If you're voting cold - can you please explain why - I'm in the market for a new laptop and it would be good to know if better deals exist at this price.

Looks a good 'Dell' deal to me ( in absence of better deals)

Might help if you took a few minutes to check what you typed, it is N0056401 (not what you put)

Link here…401

This uses the new Intel Core i3 cpu that is the follow on from the core 2 duo/quad. As well as Core i3 there are also Core i5 and Core i7 in the new Intel range (with more to follow).

I gather these CPUs can "overclock" themselves when they need to, but can also slow themselves down when they need to (to preserve battery life for example)

looks really good!

is it worth holding out for an i5 though?

is WLED - led backlit?
I haven't seen any performance comparisons of the processor versus the older T4300 (2.1GHz, 1MB cache). The new Core i3 should be more power efficient and does have slightly better graphics performance compared to the GMA 4500MHD but is it worth the price premium? For £379 you can get the same spec with a T4300 processor:…503

or spend £50 more for the Core i5:…405

None of your links in the second post work, and I voted cold due to not … None of your links in the second post work, and I voted cold due to not putting the price in the title, I hate having to click and open the thread to check.

Not sure they are meant to be links, if you hover over them they are all javascript.
