A good deal for a slim tower vostro here, complete with 500GB Hard drive space and a 256mb ATI graphics card. To achieve the stated price upgrade to the 500GB HDD (£4.50). Vista Business Or XP Pro Available Also. Would recommend Vista as you can then request a copy of XP direct from dell.

Please reduce the warranty to minimum.

Upgrades:

ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT 256MB [add £5.88]
Internal Wireless PCI Card [add £10.00]
19-in-1 Media Card reader [add £11.75]
IEEE 1394 PCI Adapter card [add £5.88]

These are really small and only take low profile cards so be warned if you want to upgrade to a serious gaming card.
Very good price for this spec I think. Hot

Believe it has to be £299 before VAT to qualify for free delivery.

It has to be £299 excluding delivery, so make sure that the price shown is £359 or more and when you add it to the basket, the price will drop by £60

Did you remove the warranty and add the 500gb hard drive?

yes but it adds delivery charge

Just gone all the way through and it is showing £275.61

Can you explain how to get the xp cds from dell if you buy this with vista?

thanks

Thanks for this spot: did a bit more exploring on the Dell site and found this almost identical deal on a full-size Vostro base unit including a 19" monitor.

configure.euro.dell.com/del…bsd

Only difference seems to be the graphics card 128MB HD 2400 pro instead of 256Mb. Vista Home Premium instead of Business and a 19" monitor for an extra £75.

Just ordered this. Anything I'm missing???

I emailed them and was told to phone technical support. I called them and told them that there were no drivers for my printer/scanner and could I have the XP Pro downgrade and I received it 2 days later at no cost.

Price always showing: Includes VAT & ][COLOR=#0033ff]Shipping [/COLOR]no matter what the customisation.
There's no option to add another burner.

If you need a monitor note that the Dell free collection kicks in to reduce the price of their 19" basic monitor to under £100 and give a delivered price of £374.83.

Might be worth updating the 1st post to show this option?

You’re paying an extra £75 for a 19” monitor with only a 1 year warranty and a reduced spec computer.
It doesn’t appeal to me but that doesn’t make it a bad deal. I’d rather go with Vista Business so I can downgrade to XP Pro and buy a 20” TFT with a full warranty; I bought a HP with DVI/D-Sub and a 4 year on-site warranty direct from them for £125 after discounts.

You must be aware of the free delivery option kicking in at £299 (ex VAT). Vista Premium is typically £30 cheaper than Business with Dell (but may be the most appropriate choice). You could get a better graphics card and the same monitor for £99 with this slimline PC - see my earlier post.

As the offer you found and ordered is in the Business section, your consumer rights will be restricted, e.g. you can't return the PC (for free I think) within the cooling off period under the Distance Selling Regs... if you can change your mind, so you must be happy to buy this offer. I'm sure Mike T can explain this bit more clearly. Mike? :thumbsup:
