Latest xps 15, if you live chat them and say your going to buy asap they give a 7% discount.

Is this a good price?

I'm tempted to get. Under EU rules for a high end machine would the guarantee be longer than a year?

What does 'EU rules' have to do with this deal?
Don't rely on rules which'll be history six months from now.
Wow. Shocking price.
I mean guarantee might be better than a year.

Lol doubt we will leave the EU!

I'm worried about spending so much as I had a dell that failed after 18 months.

No, that EU 2 year directive does not entirely apply to UK residents but we get better protection actually, up to 6 years under the Sales of Goods act.
Some suppliers in the UK will honour the 2 year rule (because they either don't understand the rules properly or they're just nice) but research will show that with many items you have up to 6 years to make a claim against the retailer should the item fail. This does not mean it has a 6 year guarantee but up to 6 years to claim should it fail and can be shown to have failed prematurely and you will have to prove it failed prematurely. That is your legal right under the Sales of Goods act. Of course retailers make life tricky so you usually have to get a report done on the fault and threaten legal action to get them to do anything.

Pay for anything over £100 with a creditcard - this gives you 'section 75' protection (read up on it) as that can really be useful.

What is the suspect model?
Do dell ever do deals on these laptops?
I've haggled them down to match e computers price of £1469 ,easy to do
Just wait and they will be on the Outlet for around a grand in a few months. Then you can put some of the money saved towards upgrading the Dell warranty.

Added: Just checked and I bought one for £802 a year ago but they were usually around £910; these were good prices for the outlet. This was the 512GB SSD model.

You couldn't of bought one a year ago as this model was only just released.

I've looked at outlet prices and they don't seem very competitive IMO. Only thing I like is the three year support.
There is an i5 version which is much cheaper. Could be an idea to purchase that and replace with a ssd?

I don't know if this is a good deal but you are paying nearly list. The 960M is significantly slower than 970m. You can get ok laptops for about 1K with the 970M in them - but they are not as nice as this. You will struggle to run any 4K games on ether card but the 970m will be ok at 1080

Well of course it was last year's model being .... a year ago!
The point is that it was the new model then and the prices were low.
You have to know when to buy to get good prices on the Outlet.
Isn't CES on soon? Newer models coming out might mean better deals on higher spec soon.

This is a new model with the current Intel chip-set but other manufacturers might release something similar!

The OP means E-Value Code: CNX5503 which is £1,649.00, minus the 7% discount that they were offered on live chat.
The margins on these are enormous which is why they will be under a grand on the Outlet so I'd aim for 10 to 15%.

True. Returned item from customer. box was opened.
Remember to ask the right questions ... when does the warranty start on this device... the timer probably started when it was purchased by the first customer.

Hang on.. what happened to the xps 15 on your link. it was there 15 minutes back.

found it.. here: ebay.co.uk/itm…151?hash=item51de0ad64f:g:ek0AAOSwZVhWTvkg

That's not how it works with Dell refurbs as the warranty starts when they ship it to the current buyer. With large resellers like this I don't know if Dell gives them leeway to reset the warranty to when the reseller ships them. That is worth asking as they have a lot of stock and some of it must be hanging around for months.
one thing i will warn you about ,the xps 15 with 512 ssd from e computers comes with a 56 whr battery,if you buy direct from dell it comes with the larger 84whr battery,i have a sneaky feeling the e computer systems are getting the ssd fit by them ,not standard fit

True. All depends on what agreements they have with Dell. I've never purchased from them however they do have good feedback.

which one is that as they only seem to have the
Dell XPS 15 9550 3.5 i7, 16GB, 1TB & SSD, 3840 x 2160
for sale .

but to add, the one they are selling is probably the worst new xps 15 9550 to purchase as it comes with a 4k display but only a 56whr battery !

They haven't they've upgraded the small battery version which supports 2.5" drives and they do state that the upgraded drive is 2.5" which wouldn't fit in the large battery version.

Thanks, you might be right. However the xps13 did go hot that was a bit cheaper but much lower spec.

I'm now worried about the graphic card in this one, only seem 10% less powerful than the next model up however.
the graphics card in it is really good for an Ultrabook. could run modern games at 1080p on medium high settings
