Dell outlet Help! , Is this a good £500 laptop ?

    Hi i am looking at getting a laptop and have about £500 to spend, not in a hurry so been reading up etc and everyone seems to say the dell outlet is a good place to get a bargain........i am looking for something with a big screen around 17" and high resolution as i like to play a few games of poker at a time...........i will also use it for downloading, music etc.
    I have found the below laptop and was wondering what people thought, from what i can work out the screens resolution is 1920x1200. If anyone can let me know if this is any good or i should wait a bit longer, its a bit confusing with all the different things on there!!

    any advice is appriciated as it gets a bit confusing with all the different specs etc and i want to make sure im getting a decent laptop for the money.


    wouldnt say its deal of the year or anything, but still good

    It is only a Pentium Dual core processor, and £500 is a lot to spend on a laptop with a Pentium dual Core CPU.

    You should expect Core 2 Duo for that price.
