That offer ended last night I think. I was looking at a few of these yesterday (10% codes still lurking on HUKD) and I'd say that's a great deal. Or at least, it was yesterday when it could be bought for that price.

Not seen any great deals yet from Dell this morning.

Use code for 10%: QHM3VV8CZTDCBD (valid till 04/02/09)

you could do this for 631 (excld. vat)

£725 + £20 delivery I assume. That's a BIG number for a base unit without Blu Ray, 3GB RAM, 256MB GFX and 'only' a single 640GB HDD. I reckon it's a unit for someone who wants a very specific processor and would be as appreciated as a string of pearls to an ape to most everyone else.

It's an OK machine but for £725 I'd be heading to their Outlet as that can get you a lot there if you're persistent.

nah the above is 631 vat + deliv included but I can see your point... you just gonna have to keep your eyes peeled mate
