use code SAVE200 if the site doesn't crash which it will.

Amazing deal thanks OP - does anyone know if it is an easy job to replace HDD with an SSD on one of these laptops?

Thanks

Great deal, possibly better than the John Lewis one posted yesterday!

If say the JL one was much better value for money.

- Bigger 17.3" screen (negative for some I suppose)
- Faster i7 7500U processor
- Discrete AMD 445M 4 GB graphics card
- 3 year warranty, vs. 1 year here.

This is £100 cheaper though.
Yep a 15" screen is better for most - also makes it much lighter.
Extra USB 3.0 here.
Will the processor speed difference be that noticeable? 7th gen i5 still quick.
All depends what you want it for.

damn, i already bought the ideapad 310 amd a12 from jlewis for £330 , my only beef with dell is that they sometimes have some shoddy reliabilty issues. 1 year warranty would be a concern.

Why is the website so awful to navigate, just freezes when clicking continue.

Not bad but the battery life won't be great

Would the same laptop but with 256gb SSD be better at £544.72?

Banned

This is for general use computing, browsing the web, word docs, spreadsheets, powerpoint, media creation, very light gaming. Only slightly better performance than the i3 which was at £199 but you won't see any difference if you bought say an i3 and added an SSD. So for £150 extra, nearly the price of 2 x i3 laptops, is it worth it. Absolutely not

Another deal with no SSD. Is it £200 off all Inspiron laptops or just that one model? Link goes no where and no script blocks java on dell website for being unsafe. Might be better value going for this and upgrading HD.
Brand new CPU but still not using SSD. Wow.
Voted hot for OP efforts.

​you are aware it has ddr4 ram and is quite a bit better processor? a 5th gen i3 v a 7th gen i5 ?
and a full HD screen ?

How do you change the back LED cover to white or red?

​275gig crucial ssd 70 quid caddy 5 quid.

oops didn't see deal of the day 525 gig crucial ssd for 80 quid. plus 5 quid for caddy.

no would be my answer. you can upgrade then the options of shaping out dvdrw for the old hdd or use old hdd in a caddy for 1tb storage via USB.

All Dell kit is simple to undo so long as you the right Youtube video. Go to Crucial page and get compatible SSD.

Huh? That's news to me I could probably be described as an all out Dell fanboy if you looked at my kit and it's all been rock solid apart from when I dropped a vostro v13 down the stairs (RIP). My tank of a precision m6400 is still going strong I can't bear to part with it (and I'm not strong enough to lift it into the bin).

I don't care how good the deal is. My dignity's worth more than going through this process for a third time with Dell and their alleged website. I've taken my money elsewhere for a company that won't treat me like mindless cattle.

Are you serious??

Oh man. I payed £120 more for this laptop, albeit with the dedicated GPU, a month ago.

It stings.

The laptop is alright. Battery life could be better. Screen isn't IPS but is alright for a TN.

​just my experience, i had a £500 dell laptop i used for uni years ago which managed to unsolder the graphics chip due to heating issues after 2 years, it was a common problem that dell knew about but never fixed. The more expensive stuff probably has higher build quality but their cheaper stuff has motherboard issues. i`ve owned 3 dells before, 2 of the cheaper ones broke after 1-2years use. the only one that has lasted cost £800 at the time.

Definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results, expect I don't know who the crazy ones are - Dell for posting these deals when their site is not up to coping with the demand, or us mugs for wasting our time trying to get them.

Do they send abroad or only to UK?

Will this code work on other laptops too ?

yep. I'm after a 250 max lappy for son. not bothering with this but hopefully someone gets the 5 on offer

For those looking to purchase this like I was for an uncle, be aware that the battery is integrated into the case and cannot be replaced when it no longer holds charge. You'll either need to send it back Dell to be replaced, or open it up yourself and replace it if you know how. The Dell site doesn't allow a swappable battery to be selected which is kind of BS. I confirmed this with a Dell Sales person online.

Does yours have the FHD screen?

Biggest difference is likely to be that people actually managed to order the one at John Lewis.
