stupid cold voters, this is an excellent deal to me.
How did you get that price? what coupon did you use?

The 5% Code that's automatically linked to all Dell deals. :thinking:

The full price seems ridiculously high!

Note: This is a low end Core 2 Duo as it doesn’t support Virtualization.

The only 5% code is this Dell
L0W2?566JDVB23 "5% additional discount on Inspiron, Studio and XPS systems over £699"
I disagree with the cpu being a low end as it is far from slow, but the lack of virtualization is a problem for those who need it.

The price before discounts is £874 and in some cases as in this one the discount codes take into account that and not the price after savings which is £569 in this case.
It’s always worth a try.

2.13GHz is hardly fast for a 45nm Core 2 Duo which start at 2GHz for the mainstream chips (i.e. ignoring U/LV & CULV versions) and go up to over 3GHz. You can even get Pentium Dual Core a little faster than this. The low clock speed and lack of Virtualisation mark it out as a low end variant of the current platform. It is still a decent CPU as it has a 1066 FSB and 3MB L2, so it’s entry level for the top tier. But for a laptop listing at nearly £900 it seems very underwhelming.

But it ISN'T 900 quid, its 540! :?

What on EARTH has the list price of anything to do with ANYTHING? :-(

They are just notional figures some marketing type has plucked out of thin air! For other irrelevant list price examples see Argos beds... doubled up price so they can sell them at half price a couple of times a year!

Dell’s list prices are the base line figures and then they play around with the discount rates to give different deals on different models at different times. At the moment this model has a large discount which is seemingly why it has been posted now.
If you look at the Studio 17 you can get a similar spec but with a larger higher resolution screen and a 2.53GHz CPU that supports Virtualisation with a list price within £5 of this deal. That’s why I say the list price of this is questionable in comparison to other Dell’s which means the discount is inflated and hence it’s not such a good deal as it seems.
Of course ultimately what counts is what you actually pay and this seems no better than okay. If it had a better CPU though…..:-D

Yawn

Snooze.

I'm new here. Why is this getting voted cold?

For the price (£540) it is a great deal considering the processor and graphics. Dell always overestimate the 'first' price so its not worth the £800 or so they probably claim but its a great laptop for anyone needing a bit more power than a netbook but not a full multimedia pc.

I am not new here, and the intricacies of the temperature of deals makes me stand back in amazement more often than it doesn't! :?

Great deal in my book!

Not a bad deal, better than the Vostro's you;ve listed imo

Heated up

Got a linky?

to clarify, I cannot find a dell studio 17 with "similar spec but with a larger higher resolution screen and a 2.53GHz CPU that supports Virtualisation with a list price within £5 of this deal" that Agharta is referring to
