UPDATE - Yeah seems like if u talk to sales rep about the mistake they made with specs they might give u a discount I got £20 off the first time I tried. If the Inspiron promo code expired then just make a little sob story about how u really need this laptop but the code didn't work or something so they might just add there own discounts to the system .

If you copy the link in the description above it should take your to the exact page, I don't know why but when I paste the same in link as the main deal link or in comments it takes you to Dell Home page

Thats a meaty laptop.
Shame it's only using GDDR3 in the 960M, ruins an otherwise, very well balanced laptop.
I didn't think the 960m could use ddr3? Think it's an error. Wouldn't worry about it. Makes no sense to have a 960m with ddr3 lol
The 950m has a ddr3 variant however
contacting them now about the GPU memory
Got A link to it?
well what da'ya know, it is the GDDR5 model. they made a mistake ..

and they may give you a discount because of this.

Further down the main page for this laptop is says

The NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M is your performance-class graphics card w … The NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M is your performance-class graphics card with 4GB GDDR5 discrete memory

yep confirmed by sales rep on online chat it is GDDR5 model of GPU
can someone from this comments let me know if they can see the image file i put link for. its the chat session with the Dell Rep
First of all the price is 698.60 inc. vat and delivery for today "Save £50 on select Inspiron 7000 Series and XPS PCs. Use the coupon code PREMIUMSALE. Offer ends 14 Oct.".

Also I have confirmed that the battery is a 6-cell one. "Marathon battery life: With a 6-cell 74Whr battery, expect 10+ hours of battery life to power your favorite games and videos without interruption. Combined with a 1” thin design and strong performance, this laptop makes it easy to take it all with you."

Finally the online rep insisted that the graphics card has DDR3 memory but apparently someone was told that it is DDR5.

In any case I'm buying one!
Looks like a really good price for this spec gaming laptops are finally getting cheaper.
It is the DDR 5 version, not the DDR 3

Just ordered one through an online rep for £696.58. Estimated delivery date is: 05/11/2015 so around 3 weeks which will give me enough time to buy an SSD drive.

Only thing I'm worried about is Windows 10 as everything else sounds great...
heat, heat, heat!!
I almost placed an order for a laptop on PCSpecialist for £1000 with similar spec.. Thank you OP!
Hey guys, deciding between this Dell inspiron and an msi pe70.. 17.3" - Core i5 4210H - 8 GB RAM - 1 TB HDD, NVIDIA GTX 960M - 2 GB GDDR5.
.. Both almost identical prices. Is there much in it between the two? Thank you for any advice.
4k and touch for £100 extra!

Yes the difference is major processor wise the Dell has one of the most powerful and latest laptop CPUs , the Skylake i7 6700HQ is 4 cores at 2.6Ghz and turbos to 3.5Ghz also its hyperthreading enabled so essentially 8 cores!

The hard drive is also a hybrid in this dell so it has 8GB of flash storage for quicker access to programs, responsiveness and load times are improved with this type of drive.

The Dell also has 4GB of GDDR5 so can handle higher resolutions if you want to connect to external displays or even go for the higher models on the same page that have 4K screens. Dells hardware is pretty good too and very reputable.
You should change the title to £698 - using code PREMIUMSALE drops £50 off the price.
If the code doesn't work, speak with an advisor on live chat and they will sort you a quote with £50 off.

Ordered mine, get it within 2 weeks!
can we add extra ram? This is for student who needs a laptop capable of rendering etc

yeah should have two RAM slots with one coming occupied with an 8GB stick of SO-DIMM. just add another 8GB to the other slot ut make sure you check to see the specs of the already installed module to get a matching one. Mr Memory is a good site to check out.

​ok thanks mate. Only problem is the msi seems to run games a lot smoother which is what I will use a laptop for a fair bit
the brand name doesn't necessarily mean its gonna go faster, the specs are actually stronger on this Dell.
lol this model is actually even has better specs than Dell's own entry level alien ware machine and its couple of hundred pounds less!

You really only pay for the brand / design with Alienware
Don't forget guys if you have an old pc / laptop laying around you can get £100 back :-

hotukdeals.com/dea…404

Why it's so cold i don't know. It's no HP cashback where you can send anything back but I'm sure there are qualifying items you can send them that isn't worth £100.
Amazing price, would be all over this if I didn't already have a similar laptop. Have some heat.
hi guys what touchscreen laptop would you recommend. Around the £600 mark as would probably want to go for a warranty on top

"hyperthreading enabled so essentially 8 cores!" - Nowhere close to being nearly 8 cores. Threads don't even compare to the power of a core.

Was just about to say the same thing, but it is also very much dependent on what you do, if you have 8 power hungry processes this processor will beat the c*ap out of an i5 with essentially same cores.

As an example I have i7 3610QM and have been doing some programming which involved running the same program for a long time and basically up to 4th thread there is no slowdown, going over 4 sees you slowing down to about 80% and processor going into uncomfortable highs temperaturewise.
If your a student in a tight ass room sure I can understand getting this, otherwise get a proper pc which is better, easier to upgrade and cheaper!

Up to 30% and that's in extreme circumstances.

software.intel.com/en-…ion

The technology / maths behind hyperthreading has not changed.

So to sum up, a heavily overclocked i5 will keep up with a stock i7 in most situations. 30/30/30/30 - 120. So just over the added power of 1 more core. Stick 1Ghz or more onto your i5 and your nearly clawing back the same added power. I'd rather have it than not have it, but it's nowhere near the same gain as extra cores. Also in some circumstances HT is undesirable altogether as it can create results that can't be interpolated easily. For instance falsification of CPU utilization.

I must say, this is massive amounts of pc for the money. The quad core skylake cpu and the graphics card are excellent for a laptop of this price, as are the screen, keyboard and OS. The ram and hard drive could arguably both be better, but at this price it is hard to see how, and they are both cheap upgrades if you use this site and a screwdriver!

Agree with everything apart from the W10 bit. Performance/features vs Out of the box Intrusion.
I need a new laptop for work, and originally I was eyeing up the new XPS 15 because I can get a good deal on it. But from what I can tell, the only advantages of getting the XPS 15 over the Inspiron 7000 is the InfinityEdge display (small bezels) and 2133 MHz RAM. Otherwise the HDD, resolution etc. are all the same. The Inspiron even has 4GB VRAM on the GPU (2GB on the XPS), and is £350 cheaper!
Take this from someone who for the last 3-4 days has been scouring the internet for used, manufacturer refurbished, and even imported gaming laptops at the £600-1000 range:

£699 for a laptop with those specs, particularly the GTX960M 4GB and the i7-6700HQ chipsets - simply does not exist today. This is a stupendously good price. If I were to try to find any other laptop brand new with the kind of specs this Dell Inspiron has I'd easily be in the £1000+ range. I'm so sure of this I'll accept any challenge on the matter .

The next best option I could find was a manufacturer refurbished Lenovo Y50-70 with a GTX960M 2GB and an i7-4010Q, with the same RAM, HDD, and everything else as this Dell. That was for £750 from the US (price including delivery, import and customs costs via eBay).

I hesitated due to the Lenovo Superfish rootkit drama, BIOS locking and other shenanigans Lenovo like to do, as well as the atrocious Wifi boards those models are plagued with - but boy am I glad I hesitated.

OP, I'd give you all the heat on the internet if I could.
I've no idea how anyone has been able to view this item on the website. All I get is an infinite redirect loop error
thanks ordered one but had to do it by sales rep chat
