Tesco dont sell Dell do they?



Yes. I am sitting in front of an Inspiron 530 now that I bought there!

Nothing on the website :thinking:

Any chance of a product code/barcode ?

what would this actually be (would it include the screen, keyboard etc)

Hot if it's not store specific.

What's the spec? Sounds a good deal.

They do sell Dell, I bought a clearance Dell desktop from them recently.

Unfortunately, this is very likely to be an individual store manager's clearance only. Won't vote either way until I hear otherwise.

Les

called them and they had no record of if on customer services at any store she searched for at least 3 or 4 minutes under various names.

Sounds like a good deal if you can find one! ;-)

Don't think many stores actually sell PCs...

they were selling the XPS420 back in May / June for £549

So good deal IF you can find one.

the non food stores are best for PC's , do a store search on Tesco's website and look for the Homeplus stores.

None in merthyr

Can you phone them asking if there any? o.o dont go much to tesco but parent both need a laptop

This will be store-specific, I'm sure, but it's always worth having a look in your local Tesco as they do have good discounts on tech stuff when it's been on the shelf a while.

Well I picked one up 2 weeks ago but they are imposible to find now -
it comes with a 5 button mouse and it is eligible for "free" win 7 as I've ordered mine from Dell but it cost me £11.42 postage.

I think the tech guys had the rest when mine scanned at £199.99 - they were priced as to clear at £479,99

DAMNOME " ... and it is eligible for "free" win 7 as I've
ordered mine from Dell but it cost me £11.42 postage."
--> [COLOR="Blue"] When I go to win7.dell.com/Eli…spx it does not
list Dell XPS 420 for the upgrade. Any info on how to get the
upgrade will be welcome. Thanks in advance[/COLOR]

ok - well I rang 0844 444 4712 and told them I wanted my free upgrade for Windows 7 but couldn't do it online - they asked for my service tag and told me they had now registered my service tag and to go to win7.dell.com and follow the prompts.
I couldnt find XPS 420 only 430 so used that.
followed the screens to payment and then clicked continue and had Win7 upgrade confirmed and sent. hope this helps

[COLOR="Blue"]DAMNOME. Thank you for sharing your upgrade method/details. I will try that.[/COLOR]
and also will see if I can add some rep for you. Your help much appreciated.

PC in box, then there's another sealed box which has the bits and bobs in i guess, keyboard, mouse, cable, paper. i haven't open the sealed box up yet though. the whole box was sealed. it is a good bargain, but it uses the older style btx motherboard, which is custom designed for dell, and the power supply might be custom as well, 375w which can't really power a decent graphics card.

so debating if i am gonna keep it, as i can't upgrade the psu, its a waste of such a high spec pc.

Glad a few of you guys picked them up make's it all worthwhile:-D £199 for an XPS and it's 15 degrees:thumbsup:

Thanks to the OP. I was in Tesco Extra Napier road Reading looking for a camera for the grandaughter and noticed an empty shelf with a marked down SEL for this computer. I thought no chance, but asked, and a young lad spent ages out the back finally coming back grinning with a big box covered in dust - It was the last one!
I'm well made up, heat and rep to the OP

This needs to be unexpired as there may be others lurking about in the back of other stores

I went to my local extra stores (Beckton, Goodmayes, Lea Valley and Brookfield.) and had no luck in any of them. Anyone interested in selling one to me I will put a little bit extra on top for your troubles (and collect if not too far from me) .

If you decide to get rid of it I will take it off your hands (with a bit extra on top for you).

looks like maybe variations in spec, mines similar to the above but the card is a 3650, rest appears to be the same. memory is 667 as well.

hi,

been to beckton branch but they didnt have none . so can anyone suggest where i might be able to find a one .. please help





ooo7

there were only two in the beckton branch, i got one and harmzz. i went to lakeside, essex today and while dodging the many shopprers, I popped into the tesco's there, they had none as well.

i say you gonna have to go to some large tesco extra stores in some posh areas, maybe you get lucky there.

Tried Worcester St Peters, Kidderminster, Cradley Heath, Dudley and Quinton. Nothing :-(
