**** Free delivery offer means that price went down a bit.

Less than 18 pounds more expensive than the earlier Vostro deal I posted. Some of you might prefer Inspiron. As usual try to get some cashback using Quidco. Also worth noting is that you can choose between XP and Vista. Catalog Number : 202 N1264051

Would have been nice to have a direct url to the actual deal rather than the manufacturers homepage

much rather have the core 2 than amd as they are slooow

Its not AMD..
And modern AMD are good

This seems a good deal..........

Is it available to home users or just buissness users?

The notebook comes with windows vista buissness intalled as OS

There are no similar deals on the dell homepage :?

£374.83 via your link..unless you are including Quidco?

Looks same as Mike T's hotukdeals.com/ite…ot/

isn't this a duplicate of mikes post just with quidco added which i didn't think should be factored into the deal price as its not certain?

Great deal but cold for duplicating an original post.

Hmmm.... The Product numbers are different though. I genuinely did not copy or dupped MikeT's deal anyway...

original link appears dead

Possibly...I can't tell with this site ...I honestly though you had only posted this today:)
.....it was never this confusing before.....no offense intended :thumbsup:

...goes off to try mse...........................................

Agreed I used to like all the newly posted deals at the start or the deals that contained new posts. The old design seemed much more user friendly and it was more effective. Still love the site though!

if I am right to say so... the original price is £374.00

after Quidco 5% cashback = £355.30
after tesco clubcard points (mastercard, £3.55) = £351.75 :santa:

It is Pentium.. not the Centrino version that will save power to run longer. still a good deal though !!!

Kengboon. The price has been hiked up since last week. I tend not to include Quidco in my deals actually. Also this particular version of Pentium is not the same as the previous Pentiums/Pentia that used to be sold. This one is a dual core (en.wikipedia.org/wik…ors) and is not more power hungry than other processors. The E2130 consumes 31w for example, which is less than ALL Core 2 Duo mobile processors (en.wikipedia.org/wik…ors).

I remember reading an article sometime ago listing the type of processor relate to the power consumption as follows:-

Pentium Dual Core
Centrino Dual Core
Core 2 Dual. (best)

Don't seem to be able to find that article to share.

There's no such thing as a Centrino Dual Core. Centrino is an Intel Platform which consisted of the CPU, motherboard and wireless Chipset. As for your article, it might be referring to the desktop version of the processor rather than the mobile version itself. More here en.wikipedia.org/wik…ino

There are several versions of dual-core processor. you will see the Intel processor sticker on the notebook as follows:-
Intel Pentium Dual
Intel Centrino Dual
Intel Core2Dual
Intel Centrino Pro

this site will give comparison amongst the centrino processors (different type of processor stickers can be seen)
intel.com/pro…htm
see the mobile performance and battery life spec.

this site will give the spec of pentium processor
processorfinder.intel.com/

Currys also explains differernt type of processors with the processor labels.
currysknow-how.co.uk/en/…es/

You will find that the Core2Dual version gives a longer battery life, then followed by Centrino Dual. This is the infor from official site.

btw, I am using the Intel Centrino Dual.. it does exist though.

The first link you showed me point to a spreadsheet containing a product comparison list. All the processors I see there are either Intel Core 2 Solo or Duo. In the second one.. Well... I see the processor names in the drop down menu but again, no Centrino :whistling:Only Intel processors - the real ones. So I stand by my initial claim that Centrino is in fact a platform - the first link you sent me confirms just that.

BTW, I wouldn't trust Currys or in fact the PC World family for advice. Stick to wikipedia and avoid the marketing gimmick
