i got a very similar setup the week before last for £345, but with 1gig of ram, the 128mb version of the graphics card and the 2gig celeron processor (and i choose the 2x160gig=320gig drives). i've ordered 2gig of ram from play for £22 with the £2 off voucher, but say i wanted the full 4gig, effectively that would make the price about £386, thus is it really worth £200 more for the slightly faster processor and graphics card (oh and webcam, i didn't choose)? i wouldn't say so myself. the previous deal was far better. i should have mine delivered tomorrow

C'mnon lets not be rediculous, a Core 2 Duo processor is in a different league of performance to a celeron. Honestly you really can not compare the two. I mean its like saying is it worth spendin and extra £xxx to get a Ferrari, if you had the money and you want performance you gotta pay the extra premium, especially if you want it for gaming which is most definately not recomended on a celeron. This seems like a good price for a performance laptop, but yes if you are not into games or video editing then a celeron might be worth the money.

even then, the option to upgrade to the same processor still worked out a lot cheaper. i think it was maybe £80 to upgrade that, so the same options as this offer could be had for considerably less if thats what was desired

personally i'm not into gaming so the celly is more than adequate for my needs, but i thought compartively it's not a great deal compared to the previous offer

Look uni its a dell system so has to be voted hot even if it is not :roll:

The standard upgrade cost from a 2.0Ghz Celeron to a 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo is £270. If you had the option to upgrade for only £80 you shoud've jumped at it.

This is a decent deal, not outstanding, but a decent deal. You won't get an awful lot better from Dell for that money right now.
