Cashback is 0.5% on Inspiron...business must be bad....

Price using code ?G954BVRBWB5S7

This is pretty hot for a 1080p i5 laptop with 8gb and dedicated video. I'd get the girlfriend one if I wasn't broke

Good deal. The discount also applies to extended warranty. Have some heat.

Sorry for the delay. Yeah, I believe that was the code fella

Thinking of getting this or XPS L502x.

Heard that the graphics card has issues when playing some games, anyone had this problem?

How does this price compare to the same laptop in the outlet mate ?

Still torn on what to get - looking at the ultrabooks as well

I'm guessing that's for a certified refurbished. The OP is for a brand new one (I think).

Yes mate, slightly more expensive than the "scratch & dents", but fully certified refurb & 12 month warranty.

Nice, thats a beast I toyed with the idea of getting the i7 and paying the extra. Just can't bring myself to buy a refurb laptop even if it is certified. Good deal u got there tho

You should bring yourself to buy refurbished (no-fault returns for the most case with Dell)...been buying Dell for 10 years...more problems with new than outlet ones.

Buy all my laptops refurb & never had a problem

Was toying with an ultrabook, but too much of a hit on CPU/GPU.

By coincidence I just read an article stating the exact same thing. I also read some people posting some bad experiences also however. Pros and cons I suppose. I'll definitely give it some consideration. I did get a dell latitude refurb off eBay years ago which was fine so I don't know why my mind has changed so much. I seem to be collecting Unopened Laptops at the moment

That's the laptop, £511.46 with free delivery.
"Certified Refurbished"

Can't see that mate.

Be careful as there is one that doesn't have the Blu ray or backlit keyboard.

Mine worked out at something like £535, but just log onto the Dell online chat & ask for a 5% voucher. They always generate you one.

Haven't bought it, but yeah there is no Bluray drive combo and the keyboard is not backlit.

Yes that's it mate. Need to add on VAT (free del at the min though).

It was only an extra 20 odd quid for the BluRay drive & backlit keyboard though

I've been looking for about 6 weeks & this stood out with the CPU & graphics card options

I bought the OP laptop 15R Special Edition for the price stated (£500.71), should be here in a couple of days.

Plus I think the GPU in the 15R Special Edition is faster than the i7 GPU.
