In your dreams!

Check the ecodes:giggle:

Is this better or worse than this HUKD laptop

hotukdeals.com/for…625

What is the main difference between the 1000 serise and the 1500 ?

This one's got 160Gb Hard drive compared to last week's 120Gb and it also has twice the memory

I really want one of these laptops but there just too expensive at the mo.

Are these likely to go down any further?

Your guess is as good as anyones when/if it will drop in price.

Its been £527 for a while now, it did drop to £517 for a few days last month and in error to £468 for a few days some time before that, but mostly its been £527/528 since introduction.

You need to be a little careful looking at price alone though as Dell sometimes change the spec and keep the price the same.

Hi, I'm looking for advice as to whether I should opt for 1440 x 900 screen resolution, as I won't really be using it for games or imagine I'll need numerous windows open at the same time. I'll primarily be using the notebook for web browsing, word processing and video editing.

Also, I assume it's easy enough and they'd be no probs (e.g blurring) in reducing the display res to 1280 x 800 if I found text, images etc too small in a native res of 1440 x 900.

It will I think revert to 1280x768 and you wont like it as its not a natural res for the 1440x900 screen, everything will have a fuzzy edge to it.
The 1440x900 is a nice res, I doubt you will find the txt too small, but if you do there is always windows zoom and larger txt options.
I dont have good eyesight and 1440x900 works for me well enough even on a 14" screen.

Did a quick check and if you want a Vostro 1500 with a higher spec:
[LIST][*]2.0GHz,800MHz,4MB L2 cache[*]Genuine Windows® XP Professional - English[*]Base Warranty - 1 Year Business Hardware Support[*]15.4" Wide Screen WXGA+ (1440 x 900) Display with TrueLife™[*]Matte Jet Black without Camera[*]2048MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM (2x1024)[*]160GB (5400RPM) SATA Hard Drive[*]256MB nVidia® GeForce® 8600M GT[*]Fixed Internal 8X DVD+/-RW Drive[*]Primary 9-cell Lithium-Ion Battery (85 WHr)
[*]E-value Code: UKBSDONL-N1015003
[/LIST]

...then you're better off going for the following which is cheaper than the current one by almost 60 pounds with the above configuration (current deal = £750.8, proposed deal + 17.5% VAT = £692)... Both have free delivery by the way. Am I missing something and if not isn't this worth a thread of its own?:)

]http//co…dt1

I want this spec but for cheaper. Currently it comes to about £550 with truelife and better battery where as your model with the higher spec comes to about £650 and i dont need the faster processor, better graphics card or higher screen resolution.

Here you go for £586 you get 2.0GHz and 256MB memory card. This is a far better deal i presume

ecomm.euro.dell.com/del…lse

I wasn't replying to you directly (even though I quoted you!) I was just saying that in general if someone wants a better spec then this isn't the best Vostro 1500 deal...

This is the same one as the one I mentioned in my previous post. You're forgetting to add 17.5% VAT but it is still cheaper with it. Shipping is free for both.

None of those links work.



I guess Dell changes the links every once in a while or something. From main page just go to Laptops->Medium Business->Vostro->Choose the rightmost one (most expensive) and then change the configuration to the one I mentioned. The price is still the same = £692. ra_2000k sorry if I was mistaken but your link was showing £692...Anyway any instuctions on how to access your deal without a link please?:)

Thanks

The original ecode N1015002 and subject of this thread has dropped in price to £517 now.

I will start a new thread on it as this one has run since way back and is getting a bit confusing and messy.
