Thanks for this

Thanks for the info m8, rep added.

I have a Dell XPS 700 computer, which I got for about £700 when it was "on sale" by Dell in Aug 2006! :whistling:

Really great to hear that Dell is providing a free motherboard upgrade for my computer. Which company in the world would do that once they have your cash?!?
I need to get a laptop soon, so after reading this news I will most probably stay with Dell. :thumbsup:



This link will get you straight there.

Get an M1710!!! Superb piece of kit. Tho make sure you ring them up and pester, pester, pester. I got free Graphics upgrade, free HDD upgrade, free bluetooth, free XPS case, free 3 yr warranty, and some money off. Total saving based on the web price. £395. WELL worth bartering with Dell!!!

Excellent stuff from Dell. So what is their reason behind this, is it to try and entice people into buying the quad core cpu at the same time?

This is a long story. In short, some people were not happy with functionality of the MB in XPS 700. Dell does this to make it up. Have to say, the support from DELL is second to none.

@ EviL Ras: make sure you read the whole thread before posting non-relevant stuff. This thread is for people who already own a Dell XPS desktop (top of the range), and will get a free motherboard upgrade from Dell later this year.

We already have a top of the range desktop from Dell, so why recommend buying another one?? :roll:

Does anyone know if they just send out the motherboard or do you have to send the old one back too?
