Great deal.

Wow. This is the hottest deal I've seen for a laptop. Almost tempted to get it even though I have no need.

Are the 720p screens good quality?

Not sure if the 1080p ones are going to have a bit too small text for my liking. Yeah i know you can zoom in but it's not the same

Is this deal hot because they are just about to replace the model?

This model is part of Dell's latest XPS Laptop range !
Edited by: "Brains" 27th Oct 2010

doesn't matter if they are about to replace the model, this spec is unbeatable at this price. I have the same laptop with the better screen and 1.6 i7 processor and it is quiet and fast - very fast! I might just get this as well.

No problems getting to it ! Clear out your temporary internet cache - This may improve things !

how would the laptop run for gaming

Nice price, need to sell my Vostro 1400!

not working for me

wow.... that is a beast for the price.

wish i hadn't bought a mbp now...

Not working. Site hangs.

The lined page is fine, but whenever I try to go to next step to order, the page freezed.

Not working for me either, and can you get a higher res screen than this darn 1366x768?

Is anyone else confused? Seems like someone is confusing resolution with definition.

It's showing £549 now when I clicked the link???

Am I missing something or do I need use quidco too?

Thanks

Can someone paste the link down here as it isn't working for some of us above.

I think this is slow with so many people trying to buy it.
I've not got the cash at the minute, but this is a superb price.

scorching hot!!!

Thanks Brains!

Would it be worth opting for the 9-cell battery what with the CPU and graphics card?

can get to the deal page but if I press Continue, nothing happens

Hi, price showing £549 for me not £496.

Do i need quidco or maybe remove some specs?

Again direct link here

I take it this would be worth the extra £100 over the PC World type machines for around £400?

Wow. Ordered. I really didnt need this!!! But what a bargain!

The actual url I used prior to submitting this deal is correct. But HUKD converts it into a url which seems to hang on Dell's site. HUKD need to sort this out !

Well in terms of general consumer hardware (Monitors, Laptops, TV's etc.)

1280x720 = 720p / 1366x768 = 720p
1920x1080 = 1080p

His point stands. But I don't know if it's upgrading the screen res to 1920x1080 (1080p).

Mine has gone through and just confirmed with my credit card company that the payment has been approved their end, so all looks good unless Dell decide to do the dirty.

Total bargain and just what I needed as an upgrade on 2nd laptop. Expect to see a nice M1330 in warranty on the FS threads soon.
