This is a very good price for xps with decent spec! Hot!

just want to point out that the 8600M GT in the XPS 1530 is the ddr3 version, i.e. better than the 8600M GT you get on Inspiron / Vostro series notebooks, which is only ddr2 (still a good card to be fair). :thumbsup:

Ah good work! How can you tell so fast when the prices are reduced?

I'm swaying between this one and the M1330... both similar price but this one is more powerful at the expense of extra weight etc. Hmm hmm hmm... what to do?!

Erm...have you used the voucher twice, 'cos I cannot get it to that price...MikeT's is right, I think. He is already using the 10% voucher in his post. £779 less 10% = £701.10 maybe miket got it wrong by £6??

The price is still £707.10 delivered, I have no idea who expired the deal but if they can get this ecode ]n01x5303 cheaper then please suggest how.

If another ecode gives the same spec cheaper then post the ecode or a deal

would you say this one or the vostro............ i had an acer ferrari 4005........... but its dead from water and insurance company does not cover laptops!!!!!!!!! ARRgggghh

Anyway need a replacement asap, with as much power as the Acer ferrari , so which would you reccomend....

looks like a good buy but i've also been looking at the asus f3sv-ap075g with similar spec below from Play.com with 5% off code and quidco should be a similar price. Any advice as to which to go for as never dealt with either asus or dell - any helpful advice welcome as to which one to go for.

At a quick glance the dell has way better graphics card and even with 5% off the Asus the dell is considerably cheaper, other specs otherwise look very similar....for my money I would buy the XPS....just my opinion.

Hi MikeT if you add the 10% voucher (6$3PDNQL4CD2VJ) it brings it down to £647.11

erm....MikeT is alreading using this code in his post, there is a link to it, his price is right, you are trying to take 10% off twice.

If it really could be done for £647, I would cancel my Inspiron 1720 order and order this instead....I mean MikeT's is a good deal, but that would be amazing!

Thanks for the reply Agent_Silver - I just found the asus for £729 from laptopdirect.com so with quidco its within a tenner of the Dell guess its down to personal preference but the Dell does look like its a solid piece of kit.

As already said by others £707.10 is the final delivered price.

The £647.11 price that you have quoted is the sub total before delivery is added.

That explains why my maths was wrong no 10% off delivery....that was bugging me.

If you don't need all the hard drive space you could order the lower speced version here

configure.euro.dell.com/del…756

Upgrade the processor from a Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T5450 1.66 GHz to the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor T7250 2.00 GHz, and upgrade the graphics card to the 8600GT. With the voucher the price comes to £649.95, which to me seems a good buy.

arghing?? dell have just slipped to third place so I think there will still be deals out there, however, since early January the deals haven't been quite so good.....I felt like you when I was ordering my Inspiron, glad I did as it was £30 more expensive after the cut off, and that was with a smaller hard disc and without truelife.

typing like a speed freak lead s to mistakes !......... damn it so confused lol

The only thing thats stoping me from ordering is ....

1) i hear batteries die very quickly?
2) The glossy screen - Any ideas if they are ever going to get a matte one?

Any comments.....

Would prefer this than my 1720, which will be delivered tomorrow. The same spec is only more expensive dure to the £60 delivery.

Is it easy to return the laptop for a full refund or am I better cancelling the delivery? :oops:

What do you think? I would have preferred 15inch in the first place...
