I think the monitor upgrade to 14.1" UltraSharp™ Wide Screen WSXGA (1440x900) TFT Display with TrueLife™ for £23.50 would be worth it. Shame that it is so much more money for less than what you get with the Gateway, though I imagine it has greater battery power and the weight is less, though I couldn't find the weight on the page.

Thanks rayman

Such a shame about the XP home edition and the £25 payment just for the Vista basic upgrade....if you want vista then my advice is to go for XP pro (£58.75) and get the free Vista business upgrade (for £11 P&P).

Otherwise a neat package for those that want something that is "mobile"

Thanks for the feedback guys

Yeah shame about the Vista upgrade options not much good and I agree with wordsworth, the TrueLife display for £23+ is worth paying.

Nice machine, esp as I am after portability and am looking for one of those rare 14" machines.

What are the prosepcrt of calling Dell and negotiating the service package down to 90 days CAR ? Is this something that Dell would ever do ?? Any idea how much to knock off for this downgrade ? As a 2nd best alternative, would they throw in some extras if I downgrade the service package (e.g. 9 cell battery, upgraded screen etc.) ?

Wel you can try and negotiate over the phone but remember to consider the loss of the 4% Quidco cashback when completing the deal.

I have one of these 640M's amost the same spec here at the moment with the truelife screen and bluetooth module. The Hard drive is smaller at 80Gb but I dont worry about hd space as I use USB external drives for any larger files.
Very nice compact machines with just about all the ports you need on them, around 2.5kilo with the 6 cell battery and 5+hrs too. 9 cell gives around 8hrs average use.

I think the chances of dell downgrading the warranty are zero FF99...sorry.

I just checked my records and find that this ecode is at its lowest ever price this week, its previously averaged around £680

Sorry Mike but were you going to give an ecode? as if I'm not mistaken there isn't one on this thread.

You can phone up and haggle. I did that (for a 640m) and got a free laptop case (worth about £25). I was happy.
