Gaming Laptop For £600 - Help Please

16 replies
Found 16th Jan 2008
Hi, I currently have on order from Dell an Inspiron 1720 with
Core2duo 2Ghz
250GB Hard Disk
256mb 8600GT Graphics
2 GB of Ram
17" screen 1440x900
Vista Premium
for £572 (ish)
However, there are aparently long delays on Dells at the moment, I have looked and looked for something of a similar spec. for similar money and.....nothing!
Now I know the HUKD guys are an awesome bunch of people, so c'mon guys and girls find me the laptop of my dreams so I can tell Dell where to get off.
Rep to anyone who finds me something I buy!

I was in the same position as you, my 1720 was ordered before christmas with a 16/1 delivery date that was put back twice to 21/1 and then 22/2, similar spec to you with a few extras at £787, I phoned and complained last week about the delays and also sent them 3/4 emails saying that this was unacceptable and that I need the laptop urgently...I got an email today at 2.30 pm to tell me that my laptop is now with the courier company and that they will contact me to arrange a date to deliver my laptop..So hopefully I may get the laptop by the weekend..Ring them up and send them emails and hopefully they will put you at the front...

Try Dell outlet or dell resellers, I got a fab machine from thechef01 on ebay, he is a legitimate Dell reseller and has fab next day delivery.

Agent_Silver....checked this site out and the same laptop that I have ordered looks as if it is £630.:?
Not sure if I am willing to go this far as I have also earned some cash from quidco so it really only cost £545 or something so it's about £90 more!! :thinking:
Think I'll wait. :whistling:

checked which site out??

I checked dell outlet and there isn't anything comparable for the price, gonna check the resellers in a minute...but I know what you mean, £572 and quidco. makes it difficult to beat, keep saying patiance to myself, but it is so difficult.

This deal finished on the 9th I think it was, that is why a lot of us are loath to cancel.
Sorry mate.

Anyone had any joy from Dell yet with their orders placed on the 8th / 9th Jan? Mine's still sitting in pre-production and I'm getting impatient :x

You and me both weepiglet......even my missus commented last night about when it was due....as such not until next Thursday, having seen some other posts, they seem to go from pre-production to sent in 24 hours.
Still trying to find a good deal....wonder if they will do me an XPS 1530 with the same spec for the price:-D

Well, I ordered mine on the 31st and it's just gone into production today, so probably be a little while longer for you guys!

If that is right, I might still get mine for the first of feb....was it one of the deals from here you ordered?

Yea, it was from this deal.... hotukdeals.com/ite…c2/

But I downgraded that deal a bit to match the one that was posted later.

Yea, it was from a deal that was posted befor3e the new year, but I just downgraded the specs and it matched the deal that most people seem to have gone for.

Woohoo! Mine has been dispatched!
