Found 28th Jun 2016
I've come across this as it ticks a lot of boxes for me personally and for the price I'm struggling to find anything similar.

It looks like all the Latitude models have 35% off at the minute but for some reason this particular one has an additional £450 off, too.

The only thing I wish it had was a 1440p display but I can live without that.

To get this price, you downgrade the warranty from Prosupport to Basic. As far as I can tell, the Prosupport only gets you 24/7 phone support if you need it - the actual warranty itself remains the same.

There are a lot of Latitude options in the Dell outlet, but I think these are most likely the old model, and will not have 3 year warranty included.

Just noticed Topcashback are also offering 8.8% on Dell, making the price £659.70 if successful.

Yes it is a Dell Business laptop.
But far too expensive for that specification.

Could you suggest something better then please?

Genuinely - I'm after something with this spec, top quality and a good warranty and it's the best I've found.

This is not far from the spec, and is *slightly* cheaper at 284 (with code).

lol - are you kidding?

that's a bargain basement, crappy plastic, entry level HP which weighs 50% more, will have the standard 1 year warranty, has 4GB RAM, a lesser processor, a 1366 x 768 screen and a shocking battery.

come on - serious alternatives...

A slightly lesser processor, ram that can be upgraded and once again over £400 saved. I'm done here. Your "deal" has expired, enjoy looking for a new one.

How about this?

Yes it is currently out of stock but it does come and go out of stock if you keep a sharp eye out.

Thanks - I saw that but the screen put me off. I also use a Thinkpad (T430s) at work and hate it because it feels so cheap - is the X1 any different? I do like the style of the X1 I must admit but the material selection and quality (if anything like my work one) is a concern!

have a look to te Fujitsu range. It is not easy to find them but they are good quality. Otherwise you can always try a dual boot Macbook.

Well, if anything an X1 is going to have worse build quality than a T430s - even if Lenovo consider the X1 Carbons their more premium line and use better materials, the fact that it is so thin means the sturdiness and maintainability is going to be way worse.
But then the last Latitude I experienced was a Latitude E6430s (Ivy Bridge lighter version of the 6430), and I wasn't that impressed with the build quality. One thing with Dell is that supposedly they are more open to people replacing things (so upgrading the screen does not necessarily invalidate the warranty).
Of the ultrabook type ones I have used, the Elitebook 840 G1 was the best. Quite well made for the weight (1.6KG) while keeping the maintainability (including their traditional tool-less maintenance hatch), but yes as with any ultrabook robustness and sturdiness is going to suffer.
But then you are unlikely to find a EliteBook 840 G3 for this kind of price.

Yea that's the thing, I'm looking mainly at the high end business laptops and I can't find anything to compete with this offer out there.

I only got to use it a few hours last night.

The build quality in my opinion is fantastic very solid no flexing. The keyboard is a pleasure to use. The laptop stays virtually silent and cool.

The X1 is meant to be really tough here it is with a drop test from the "ceiling"

youtube.com/wat…7rU

They also have this going for them taken directly from their marketing on the website:

"Constructed™ with satellite-grade carbon fiber, the new X1 Carbon is the toughest ThinkPad ever made. In fact, we perform nearly a dozen separate military-grade specification tests—all under extreme conditions with dust, vibration, heat, cold, altitude, water, humidity, solar radiation, and fungus. You can rely on ThinkPad despite what life throws your way.

And of course, the full-sized, backlit keyboard is spill-resistant, as you’d expect from a ThinkPad X1 Carbon."

The one i received also seem to have a 4g sim card slot which i need to look into.

Not sure on the guarantee with other ultra books but they come on site next day to fix it if there is any issues for 3 years.

With regards to the screen i need more time to comment, although if it not quite up to spec i think i would have to pay at least another £300 to get one with a good screen.

I looked at this and i reckon it would last 1-2 years before it had issues.

Like the OP stated the quality would not be there on this.

But it is good for the money if you want something which is "throw away"

If you can live with a 13.3" display, how about something from the HP Envy 13.3 range ? Around £650 for a similar spec.

I got the i7 version of the recently release Lenovo 710s, happy with it so far. Very light and has Iris graphics, which won't compete with a dedicated card but is a step up from the 'HD' variant...

Can I ask how much you paid for your 710s?

The best I can see at the min here is about £611 after student discount and TCB, and shipped for free I think.

Also how do you not accidentally press the power button when going for delete?

I have always found that Lenove are better value for money and are business specification.

You can search on Specification and manufacturer.

That's very much up for debate, as this would really depend on the purchaser's requirements, for exampled would you need to dock it using a e-dock, is disk encryption required as this model laptop have a TPM chip on the motherboard to support BitLocker etc....

Could get an XPS 13 on the outlet for that price and bump up the warranty. Wouldn't be a business machine but... well, all that seems to gain you is a proprietary dock which USB C and thunderbolt replace and a few ports which again USB C replaces.

I used a student discount through a Student Beans link, came to around £660 incl. free delivery (the i5 version was around £580 I think). TCB tracked too, but not sure if it'll actually go through.

Only had it a week or so so haven't done loads of typing on it yet, but haven't had an issue with the power button so far.

My wife wanted specifically one of these for work. Couldn't find it anywhere else at anything close to this price - which makes this hot for me. Quidco have 10% on these too at the moment which is an added bonus if it comes off. Thanks for posting OP....

By the way, Amazon have the advanced E-port docking station for this at just under £80. Whatever you do - don't buy one direct from Dell. They want north of £250 for it !
