So you are saying that you can get a laptop spec'd like this:

Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 2.1 GHz Vista Home Premium 15.6" Widescreen WXGA WLED (1366 x 768) TFT 4096MB 250GB Integrated Intel GMA 4500MHD DVD Writer £584
£399

For less than £399 ?

whats difference between these 2?

The processor is much better on the second one - i've underlined all the important parts of each of the set ups :whistling:

Yeh, I guess it's a matter of weighing up what you want - but it's still classed by Intel as in a completely quicker category (the T4X00 to T6X00) :-)

Its not much better and the casual user will not notice any difference … Its not much better and the casual user will not notice any difference but the first one has a 320 hd, the second a 250



I'm still waiting for you to either retract your post, or find a better deal for that spec laptop with Vista Home Premium!

Thanks for the effort, hot from me! But dont be so defensive about your post! Dell had the same laptop last week the one you say has a rrp of RRP £572 and included the colour upgrade for the same price. Also it had a webcam. Dell do think people are stupid like Argos do. I think its a good deal, but there has been better in near past even if there isnt now

Actually, i'm not. I'm saying Dell state that as their RRP :whistling:

True on some, but on others there are massive savings to be had. I guess if someone wants a cheapo laptop, this isn't the post for them. If someone wants one with a bit of lastativity at a good price, from a reputable company, this may be a good thread for them :-)

Cheers anyway :w00t:

Give an example where someone would benefit and the time saved?



Ermm they're faster, are you looking for benchmarks? Google it. The point is, if someone is going to use these laptops for video processing etc, a slight increase may actually be of benefit.

I don't get why you're being so argumentative. I never disagreed with you. I was stating their listed RRP against the price of the deal. I fail to see your point and why you're making a big deal out of it!

And what if they don't have the money to buy whatever they want? Being able to choose between slightly less HDD space and a slightly quicker processor for the same or similar money is obviously going to be a bonus.

Of course, you'll probably just reply with "poor people don't do video editing".

Well, until you can show me a laptop being sold that has:

Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 2.1 GHz
4 gig of ram
250gb hdd
and Vista Home Premium

For under £399.99 then you are still arguing for the point of arguing. If the above is NOT a good deal, and NOT good value for money, I challenge you to beat it. Until then, who gives a crap about the RRP, you're still getting a mighty fine laptop for £399.99

It was second hand, it was a slower processor, it had less memory, it's a smaller hdd and ultimately, it's OUT OF STOCK. Thanks, but no thanks.

Refurbs are not necessarily 'second hand', as I'm sure you know. Dell sells a lot of excess stock and machines from cancelled bulk orders as 'refurbished' - that's why places like PCWorld can regularly get a whole lot of so-called refurbs with identical specifications. Selling them with the refurb tag avoids direct comparisons with the prices of the same item on Dell's web site (much the same reason why some manufacturers slightly change the model number on dumped excess stock - DSG, Argos and others sell a lot of stuff like that).

As for the PCW refurbs vs this offer, I don't really think the 5% extra CPU clock and £10 worth of memory come close to making up for a larger, higher resolution screen, Blu-Ray drive, the Radeon 3650 GPU, the second HDD/SSD bay, etc. TBH, I wouldn't even consider paying £400 for a machine with integrated graphics and a 15" screen, but that's just me. CPU, memory and HDD can all be upgraded later. The screen and GPU can't.

But, as you say, it's out of stock now so the argument is somewhat academic ;-)

tbh I don't see how they can claim to have an RRP on their own stuff as they are the retailer in the first instance as the RRP is what the manufacturer suggests. However no one sales at RRP anymore and use it to pretend to offer a discount as people are now driven by x% off, as now everyone is using it to give the illusion that they are discounting products.

As for the quicker processor you may find that the cache size is bigger which will be significant. Believe me the cache size on the Atom N280 being double of the Atom N270 is highly significant. (512KB) v 1MB)

Also Vista is a crazy resource hog so you need to throw as much juice at it as possible.

However I imagine Dell are dumping stock fast in the run up for Windows 7 next month, which will use virtulisation for XP mode which I'm sure normal people will use and a fast CPU will benefit from.

Faster CPU = more responsive system which will be more noticable to the avg joe over a hard drive they will never even half fill.

No crazy discounts - similar specs and prices have been around for the last month at least. Heat added for putting them together.

well i have just ordered
T6500 processor with 4 gb ram, 500 hardisk , 256 g card, etc on only 479 and i think its vey good deal,
i checked all the other companies b4 spending a big amount but found this deal is very good and cheap, also keep in ur mind dell is giving u a orignal windows cd and also dell has has worth in computer market.
