Link doesn't work as usual!!!!!!

configure.euro.dell.com/del…ae2

64 bit W7 available as no extra cost option.

Shows 529.00 + VAT for me...

Use coupon code M1?3S7XDD0??T6 as advised.

Good deal voted hot.

There's a £60 instant discount on the price. I used the coupon code & this gives you 20% discount on the price before VAT.

£589
less: £60
less 20% discount: 105.80
----------------------------------------
Net Total before VAT: 423.20

Add VAT at 17.5% & you get a total of 497.26

Has this got a hdmi socket?

If its as good as the one on the studio range I wouldn't bother, you can have sound from the TV with the video on the laptop, OR sound on the laptop and video on the TV but rarely both on the TV . . .

The M1?3S7XDD0??T6 code comes up as Coupon Error...

We're sorry, the coupon code you have entered has already expired.

... Anyone else get this???

It's just happened to me. I am trying to contact 'Dell Chat' for an explanation. It was in my basket earlier to expire 23/1/10.

edit. I have contacted Dell who said it was a technical error, and try again later.

No, not even a DVI socket, just the analog Dsub and the S-Video :-(

Although i've read somwehere there an adapter for the Vostros that converts the s-video to component... whether it works with this model and is a true HD-out i don't know...

Very good deal, if 20% OFF VOUCHER works

The code appears as expired... it worked earlier as a work colleague ordered a Vostro desktop with 20% off but now some prices appear to have changed on vostros and the coupon is rejected as no longer valid, despite it saying (earlier) it was until midnight 23rd Jan.

Maybe a glitch, let's hope so

Yes, it stopped working just before 5pm. Dell Indian call centre don't know anything about codes.

The HDMI port on my Studio 1537 (bought after seeing it on here, coincidentally) works perfectly. Are you sure you've set it up right in Catalyst?

same deal in germany with coupon code:

V7JDP?D18?6RDG

maybe it works, test it

Thats pretty could, shame they didn't but a better GPU in there.

You also can't upgrade to a wireless a/g/n card from the base a/g card - the system says this is incompatible with the label that Dell stick on the laptop!!! This means I can't order a laptop with a wireless n connection because Dell put the wrong sticker on the machine. How crap is that?

It seems the 20% code was only for the first 500 customers. It's a pity that Dell didn't feel the need to make people aware of that before, and lull us into a false sense of security.

May be a back track by DELL.
All affiliate networks were told 20% expiring on Saturday.
Looks like shady practices by DELL boy.
Another reason to avoid hell from DELL

Another reason to avoid hell from DELL


I take your point Common Sense, but it appears to me that nearly all suppliers of laptops have a terrible customer service, so where do we turn to? The only positive is that Dell does seem to produce better value for money laptops than other suppliers with respect to the specification of components.

I would love to find that elusive supplier with excellent customer service.

The 20% off code seems to be working now.

It definately works if you go through Quidco

Yes it's on for TODAY ONLY.

Dell must have had a change of mind.

Good deal. Thanks for heads up. 20% off working well now too.

Should be unexpired (until tomorrow).
