Just tried updating the link, see if that works. I saw this deal on the dell website and thought the price was good. I was going to wait and see what everyone thought before going ahead

also for non students: apply SAVE50 and final price will be £499, still too much for me

Just go to dell.co.uk/ and search for CN55705

No ssd?

No ssd?


I was sad to see that as well, especially for such a new device

Good price.

Just why the hell would I need DVD drive in 2016?
Just HDMI 1.4 (no [email protected], just @30Hz) they could add thunderbolt.
2.35KG is a bit too much for me as well

I agree but this was the best deal at this price I could find right now

If you got stuck in the previous decade I guess it makes sense. But even this not really as I would assume that ULV processors are mainly targeted at mobile devices, and I doubt you rip your DVD's on the go and for at-home use you get get a cheap external DVD

always buy the 3 years warranty. too much stuff go wrong on laptops these days .
plus dell finally gave me a free replacement

I agree. Dell should be fitting SSD's as standard by now.

Perhaps take out the optical drive and fit an SSD in there?

Didn't realise kaby lake already out. So they still have dvd drive but no usb C. SSD not a big deal as can buy one and fit it in. Looks bulky for my liking though

Wow 7th gen out already, I thought 6th gen was only just released. Luckily it makes little odds, any i5 from 2nd gen onwards is good enough for most people

Agree that should have an SSD, why oh why are they so slow to add SSD's to all computers? they might sell more once the average Joe realises how good a PC becomes once you have an SSD.

Can someone post the link to the 15% off on the Unidays page. I see it on the Dell page but I can't find on Unidays where you can get a code?

Can you just go to the Dell site and put the code in or do you have to do it through Unidays?

Yeah but when I click on that link it just re-direct me to unidays.com, I have no option to get a Dell code. I have used unidays before so I understand, you get code from the site for the offer you are looking for and then put that code into the website you are buying from. That link for Dell though goes nowhere for me but to the main unidays page.

Can`t get a student code so will have to use save50.
Good spot by OP, thanks.
£499 is still a good price for this model.

I notice you can upgrade your Dell support to premium onsite for free.

The student offer should still be live as it is on there webpage so it might be worth emailing them.

Are there any other kaby lake laptops?

I believe Dell are the first to implement them. Others will follow soon.

It depends if you like higher electricity bills I guess.

Does this have a good graphics card.

Looking for a laptop to play gta 5 and light video editing

I've owned a lot of Dell laptops over the years and I've found the ones more likely to get damaged are those with curved corners on the bezel. The curves seem to make them more prone to damage.

I wouldn't worry to much about the price of electricity. It costs about a penny to charge a laptop battery-

At that rate, you could use it every day for the next 127 years before the cost of the electricity approaches that of the laptop.

I never buy laptops off Dell's main site because of the lack of upgrade options. Wait for customer returns and pick them up even cheaper off Dell Outlet. Bought a fully kitted 6th gen Inspiron 5999 for £350 delivered. I haven't put an SSD in it, but it's still lightning quick in terms of performance and boot up time.

Like others have said, the lack of SSD in this day and age is ridiculous for such a new machine.

This is still a good deal though.

At this price it'd be a 120GB SSD, which is tio small and wouldn't compare well to competing products with 1TB HDDs to the average consumer anyway.

You can pick up 3rd gen portable Dell's with SSD's off Ebay for £150-200 that's good enough for most non-gamers.

Those ex-business laptops are much better builds than these consumer ones.

We're not really going to notice on the grand scheme of things especially with laptop mobile variants.....there might be 50watts difference between a 2nd gen mobile i5 and this 7th gen mobile version which sure will mean more electricity but were talking tiddly amounts here.
Remember to boil kettles with just the water needed will make a far more meaningful saving than an CPU choice.

notebookcheck.net/Int…tml

Intel Core i5-7200U appears to be 10 - 12% faster than the i5 6200U, depending on benchmark, which considering the often criticised performance of the Intel ULV-series CPUs is welcome, in advance of quad-core ULV CPUs that are apparently coming out in 2017.

Of more interest to me at the moment, depending on configuration, the new integrated graphics adapter Intel HD Graphics 620 apparently was up to 30% faster than that of its predecessor, depending on the test, bringing the GPU part closer to the Intel Iris Graphics 540. A lot will depend on the configuration of the laptop using it but that's a pretty big deal. I had been considering a laptop or NUC with an i5 6260U for the Iris 540 graphics. In terms of how much electricity is used, I think the attraction of the newer Skylake and Kabylake ULV CPUs is longer battery life between charges and less thermal throttling in in smaller chassis, rather than how many pennies it saves, though environmentally lower power draw seems a good thing.

Though I would like to see some reviews of the Dell and agree it's a pity they didn't leave out the DVD and replace the HD with an SSD, I can't find a cheaper laptop currently available with an i5 7200, so have some heat!

What s the build and screen quality like on these new inspirons? Anyone own one
Edited by: "Eez1" 2nd Oct 2016

Looking at the few reviews out there of the i5 7200, where other components in a low priced laptop or an ultra slim laptop are the throttling/bottlekneck, HD 620 still managed to perform, on average, 10% better than HD 520 graphics in the i5 6200

- taken from a notebookreview translated review yesterday from Klaus Hinum, J. Simon Leitner of a new Dell XPS 13 9360 QHD+ i5-7200U. Hopefully there will be a raft of reviews over the next few weeks. If anyone sees i5 6260/Iris 540 models drop in price, please share!

It's not the space the reason for Dell not fitting them, a PCIe SSD is tiny and takes virtually no space, it's a price point for the customer range that this model is aimed at ( HDD is still cheaper ) and if you offer high end spec's on their low end range there would be no advantage to opting for a better variant.

Does anybody have an idea how long these promotions usually last (on myunidays)? My laptop got wet and I don't know yet if it will eventually turn back on. But if not, I need a replacement quickly...
