Bum, when I ordered my one last month I couldn't pick the backlit k/b

Is it available separately?


Once you have the above, Cruical have 8gb (2x4gb) to bring it up to 12gb for about £70.

Its also worth checking if there is a 7200rpm hard drive option as my benchmark shows me that my 640gb drive is the bottleneck holding it back.

if you aren't in a rush check the dell outlet store. i picked up a 17 inch i7 (no blu-ray) for just over £600

the option is available for all the new dell xps 17... this is the l702x. The model in my deal has it already included though..and a tv tuner is aswell which costs quite a bit if u were to add it on seperately on a model without it.. £30 for backlit, £30 for tuner, £30 for 3d capable graphics, bluray is £91... 1080p screen is £190 upgrade so it all adds up to more than the cost of this model
