I was looking around for a laptop before the new university year starts as my current one have started acting up and found this pretty quickly. I then searched about even more with this in mind and I really struggled to find anything close to these specs for £700, let alone £604!

This is the "Top of the range" 15R but it currently has an extra £100 off compared to the others which makes it the cheapest of the range!

It is only this price until the end of the 28th I believe. Edit: Now extended to the 4th!

6 months interest-free credit available as well!

Specs:

3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM Processor (up to 3.20 GHz, 6M cache)
Windows 8 64bit, English
15.6in Full High Definition (1080p) WLED with AntiGlare
8GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz
1TB Serial ATA (5400RPM)
32GB SSD for Caching
Blu-ray Disc BD-Combo (Reads BD and Writes to DVD/CD)
2GB AMD Radeon HD 7730M
Backlit Keyboard and Multi-Touch Pad
2.76 kg



Should manage most games on medium quality. (I hope)

Thanks, was looking for a new Laptop. I'll check Which reviews

FYI it's a third generation not 4th gen Intel i7 processor - which is still fantastic.

Great price for new, but I'd personally still look for a dell outlet one for comparison, as often you can knock a couple of hundred off and still have a warranty (not for everyone, just an additional suggestion).

Where does it say that? It seems to still allow me to checkout?

Good find.. Cheaper than the other models with lesser spec dell.com/uk/…/fs

I have this laptop and it's fantastic. I swapped the blu-ray drive out for a 2nd HDD caddy and stuck a SSD in there. Now I have all my software on the SSD and all my media on the 1TB HDD that came with the laptop - perfect combo

6.5 on the Windows Experience Index in case anyone is interested - that is after replacing the Blu-ray drive for a SSD though

Have fun trying to get the AMD Radeon HD 7730M to run all your games. It's such a hassle, the intel 4000 graphics card will run everything by default, which is not indicated anywhere by Dell. For spending so much ££ you'd expect it to function normally out the box. Don't be tricked into buying this poo.

It sounds like you've had experience with it. Care to tell me where you would find the info to sort it out if it does come down to that?

You have to use AMD switchable graphics to manually indicate you want the software to run at high performance. It's a pain in the ass and I don't think it's been working well. If you enable high performance with steam and check your system properties on steam, it still shows Intel 4000.

Pity its windows 8

I have a 17R SE which has a 650m in it which is comparable to the 7730m, the not automatically switching issue only happens when you use nvidia drivers straight from nvidia and not Dell's, which is a bit of a problem. If you want to use the latest driver like me then all you have to do is use the customisable hardware button on the top right and set it to the nvidia control panel, when you click the button, the panel pops up and all you need to do is click high performance nvidia and not auto or built in Intel. Takes 5 seconds to do before playing a game, so not a deal breaker really.

I was going to order a 15r se from the outlet and found one fore less than £400 I think, but it had a standard screen (not 1080p) which is consistently slated in reviews as being poor.

Nothing wrong with dell I've had the dell XPS 17 for two years now and had no problems what so ever with it. To cut a long story short Dell laptops are top notch ignore the doubters.

Does this come with a webcam built in? No mention of it in the spec also after adding to basket and then looking at the spec it says ssd 32gb but no mention of this on the product page

You're right about Sonys. The last Sony I had had screws on the back of the case you could only open with a 2p coin which took 10 minutes to take off, a crappy assist button to get into the BIOS and a loud as **** fan which you can't quieten.

My brand new Sony Ultrabook screen started too warp and developed watery looking blotches on the screen after a week. The charger also burnt my hand.

You got's to LOVE Sony!

I wouldn't buy a dell tbh I bought the top of the range XPS 13 and it broke within 10 months. I wasn't worried initially because it was within warranty but then I discovered a Dell warranty is a hollow warranty.

An engineer came out twice and even screwed the screws in wrong and stripped the thread off the laptops screw holes. Dell refused to help and told me I was lying about the issue. I battled it out for 2 months and even emailed Michael Dell himself, before eventually giving up and buying a new laptop, just under a year after I spent £1300 on the Dell.

I definitely will not be buying a Dell ever again

I signed a Lenovo Yoga 13". It's the best in the world at what it does.


Yes, this Dell laptop comes with a webcam. I'm using the same laptop as we speak - a Dell 15R SE (7520).

Dell always have voucher codes to use, here is the Official Dell UK Voucher Code page for future reference. The only advice I can give is, if your laptop hasn't been shipped, maybe you could quickly phone Dell to cancel your order, and then just re-order on the website again using the voucher code. Good Luck!

NB: I have reported the thread to be unexpired, as the laptop is still in-stock.

I was contemplating getting the Yoga but with rumours of an i7 Haswell model coming soon I'm holding back for now.
Lenovos are built like tanks, I just wish they looked a little nicer.

Thanks. Unfortunately their phone lines don't open back up until Monday and their online chat is closed for the night. I was going to see if I was able to cancel online but my account hasn't even been updated with my order yet. Will just have to keep my fingers crossed.

Sorry but i disagree. Its a wonderful laptop and a very powerful graphics card. The problem that you are facing is due to the driver. Just update the driver and you will be fine.

I was playing NFS Run on this just half an hour ago on HD 720p - All high butter smooth. And you don't have to set anything manually. AMD Switchable graphics kicks in whenever you start a game or a high graphics utilisation program like Video editing.
Also, it provides you manual control in case you want your browser to use onboard graphics all the time or similar applications.

Just update the driver to the latest mobility driver and this laptop rocks

The screen is also matte so is amazing even in a bright room Backlit keyboard doesn't come by default but you can add it if not available. as its very helpful when gaming at night.

You're welcome. Phone as early as you can on Monday (the closer to 8am the better), I'm not even sure if they cancel orders over the phone, but if they do; you will need to be quick. Also, if you do cancel your order, be 100% sure there is another one in-stock for you to order (in-case their system doesn't update stock numbers properly). As the worst scenario would be, you cancel your existing order, and then try to re-order and then find out there is none in-stock or the price has gone up.

Good price, but I bought this exact same laptop over a week ago refurbished, for £499.

Word of warning for anyone looking to get this laptop, it has the worst touchpad known to man, barely usable, just read the online reviews.

However it does have a built in webcam and is one of the most powerful laptops I have ever used, doesn't overheat like I feared it might and runs many AAA games at 40 - 60 FPS on very high settings.

You might be surprised to find that I am able to run many of those titles pretty flawlessly, your probably on of those guys who thinks games only require a GPU to run fast, you conveniently forget the CPU's role in all of this.

I'm a doubter posting this on an XPS.

Everything is great about it other than the charger, which is so bad that it takes the laptop from an 8.5 down to a 4.5/10. How Dell have managed to invent a charger that persistently falls out is anyone's guess. I'm on my 6th charger.
