works for me, but its slow to load

Works perfectly for me. Good deal I think (although personally i think Dell's are generally overpriced!)

Good price for a C2D. I would upgrade the processor for £9.00. I reckon its worth the extra money!

Have some HEAT!

See old post for comments - £9 upgrade to Processor makes this hot
hotukdeals.com/ite…-2-

Then of course there is this deal which is getting a lot of heat as well

whats the difference between the processor T6600 and P7450

Always worry about a laptop that gives 3GB RAM. In this day and age it shoud be 4GB and dual channel. Cold.

whats the difference between the processor T6600 and P7450



Well. Although the T6600 works at a higher cycle rate, (2.2Ghz) which should mean it performs better. The P7450 uses a newer architecture (basically the way the chip is compiled) which operates at a lower wattage (25W vs 35W).It also has a larger cache (2MB vs 3MB) and a faster bus rate (800Mhz vs 1066Mhz). All this translates into processing faster speed in processing and longer battery life.

It wont really make THAT much difference and for most people, I don't think they will see much of a change in speed or considerable chance improved battery, however considering its only £9 and Laptops with the P---- processors tend to be quiet a lot more expensive, its certainly worth investing a little bit more.

Benchmark = 1,523 vs 1,503, so only marginally better.

Sorry but - hahahahaha hahahah hahaha

Quite litterally the stupidest thing I've read in weeks. Let me guess, you recommend running Windows XP on any 4GB machines too?

Wonder if you get 32bit W7 as a free download or do you have to pay for it? (64 bit is not reliable enough for my software).

Well, if nothing else...at 1.30 a.m. you can certainly lay an early claim as a leading contender for the most ridiculous and cringe-worthy post of the day.....:whistling:

I'm embarrassed for you.......:oops:

Not paticularly good. Like Dell, and think 64bit makes a nice change. 250gb HD so-so,when it's 360gb now on most £399 ones, 3gb is NOT good AT ALL.

Why ? What he says is 100% correct.
Your post however is a stone cold certainty for "ridiculous"" or "haven't a clue" post.

Which is a better deal, this one or hotukdeals.com/ite…t43
What are the major diferences? Cheers

completely agree - anyone who says "3GB is NOT good AT ALL" needs his head looking at. Unless you want to do some serious gaming (in which case you wouldn't be considering this laptop anyway) 3GB is more than enough to handle most applications with ease.
Always makes me laugh when you see deals like this trashed because for daft reasons like "no quad core, less than 1tb hard drive, doesn't have 8GB of RAM, etc....." - it's £399 for crying out loud

Intel does call it Dual Channel, "flex" memory, also "asymmetric" Dual Channel. 3Gb on Windows 7 is a very healthy amount of Ram, so begone with your FUD. :thumbsup:

You used to need matching pairs of ram sticks in terms of size to enable "dual channel" but that is no longer the case so nowadays you will get "dual channel" operation with 1x2GB and 1x1GB. However every performance review I have read of "dual channel" has failed to find any measurable difference between say a single 2GB stick and 2x1GB sticks - this is due in part to the much larger cache sizes of modern Intel processors.

- Simon.

no idea aboput the specs but will def be checking this one out.

Don't forget the quidco as well.

4 cell battery might be a good idea to upgrade to 6 cell as well as the cpu. so with a p7450 and 6 cell battery this is a good deal.

yeah thats what i am doing. it comes up to £413.99. which i think is a good deal.

will quidco work with this?

Shame there is no upgrade option for the horrible flickering lcd screen used in this laptop.

For me I prefer 4 gig


Intel CPU* (up to i7) don't handle memory as good as Amd Athlon 64 - Am2,3* (+latest CPUs) set ups though. I prefer (4gig) on 32 bit (-) the hardware resources addressing etc (3.25GB) so 4x1 gig or 2 x2 using dual channel on Intel c2/quad as it gets back some performance over the lack of a dedicated memory controller on die like Amd CPUs who's memory read/write etc is far superior to c2d / quad.

i7 if the early reports I read on it should have incorporated a memory controller or the equivalent in Intel speak to compensate for the read/write(I have not bothered reading/ looking at the road map since i7s release) cos I cannot be bothered to build another computer which would no doubt happen after reading the full specs /benchmarks on a decent i7 CPU / system to replace my core 2 and core2quad

sorry - but you're being a little naive to expect anything other than a huge argument when it comes to laptop specs on a forum. "venom" and "bile" is a bit strong though - there's nothing worse on this thread than the usual banter you see in loads of threads. You make it sound like someone died..... put your feet up, have a cup of tea, and carrying on reading the guardian.

lol, I'm a Mail reader, if that helps. Nope, nobody died just can't understand why you would call it 'banter'. We have a different understanding about that word.

Thanks - great post by OP.

I upgraded CPU and went for 6 cell battery = £413.99 inc. del. Don't forget to use Quidco, it should track OK.

Bluetooth upgrade seems pricy (around £30 I think?) - don't forget you can get the nano-sized Bluetooth USB sticks that can stay plugged into the laptop if you want Bluetooth connectivity on the cheap.

Do these screens definitely flicker? Or have they sorted the issue?

LGD7001 these are the worst. jan 2009 onwards

I had wrote out a big reply but forum scwd up again and decided to go back as if i press back button. So tcalss I've had 3 out of 3 faulty. Even the 1080p screen have there own problems with a different kind of flickering up one side.


It's hit n miss. dell should stop using these panels until they fix the issues. Not going to happen as they are hoping no one notices.

Dell are ok till you develop a problem. Please be aware!!

Hot deal, would go for 32 bit though
