This is a great price for a top spec laptop which is good for general multimedia use as well as a bit of gaming with the dedicated ATI 5650 GPU built in. Sadly, no Blu-Ray but you can always add that if you want.

To get this deal just add the i7-620m when it ask's you about processors and then leave the rest of the options as default. Then apply the code "?MSP7ZRW0XZ$9W" (without quotes) at the checkout to get a further 10% off.


I purchased similar spec from Dell Outlet but with the i7 720 processer for less than £600 1 month ago, refurbished but no evidence of ever been used. These have issues with overheating and instability (blue screen of death). The BSOD was found to be caused by the 90W PSU which was considerably undersized. Make sure you obtain the 130W PSU.

The i7-620m is very over priced and doesn't give much more performance than the i5-540M which is £140 less. If you really need the extra performance I suggest that an i7 quad usually makes more sense.

Not as powerful but if its sceen size( and obviously price) thats important check the dell outlet
