    Looking for New laptop £250-£350 price tag

    Is there any new laptops out there at this price? :giggle:

    I'm not a heavy user, and use my computer mainly for browsing the net and receiving emails. Other than that theres downloading the odd few new music tracks and sending them to my phone/meizu and chatting on msn.

    *Must have Wifi*

    I would love to not have to get one but this old pile of trash i am using to post this thread is getting slower and harder to use by the day!

    Thanks for any help :-D

    Thanks for that Benny, but i would never buy direct from Dell as they are too expensive. There were two laptops listed under £350 there, but after all the messing around selecting the things i wanted with it and deselecting things i didn't want, the total at the end came to £314, but after 17.5% ontop of that, and the £51.06 delivery + 17.5% = £60, so the total cost came to £428.95

    Didn't want to pay anymore than £350 because as i said before i'm not a heavy user so it wouldn't make sence to spent much more than that, £428.95 is just too much!

    I noticed comet have two laptops for £329 and £349, we've had a acer for about 3 years with no probs

    Tesco usually have a deal around £299-£349

    What a silly statement - just received the superb quality Dell Vostro 1000 with upgraded battery all for £305 delivered. This is more than good enough for your requirements and probably the best VFM laptop on the market unless you fancy something from Lidl or Aldi :roll: :roll:

    Try again then see if it's £430 or £300 !!!

    Why is it a silly statement? I only stated what the total price came to, theres nothing silly about that!

    I clicked on the two benny had posted about but including all 17.50% on the total cost and the 17.50% on the delivery it came to 429, how did you get it delivered for £305? That really does interest me!! and i would have no problems ordering at that price! :giggle: :-D

    Here's your silly statement "but i would never buy direct from Dell as they are too expensive."....now we've cleared that up let's get you a Vostro 1000 delivered for £305.

    Go to dell.co.uk, enter the small business section, choose the Vostro 1000, make sure you have no extended warranty, upgrade the battery to the medium one (costs about another tenner) and voila you have a very good laptop for £305 delivered.

    :thumbsup:

    Thanks for that.

    Only said they where expensive because of the £60 delivery charge, don't know of anywhere else that charges as much as that. Anyway, lol...

    Ida thought the extended warranty would have been a must (but have heard if you don't take it they phone you before the 1 year is up anyway), Went to a 9 cell instead of 4 or 6, total cost including delivery came to £340.82, which i'm more than happy with as i get the better battery and the better dvd-/+rw drive for an extra £20.

    I am just about to place the order now, but before i do how are they with cancellations/returns?

    Thanks again for your help

    Absolutely fine - like any other online retailer they have no choice. If they send out faulty goods then they have to sort them out !

    Should get it within 7days as well :thumbsup:

    Glad you went with the inexpensive, well built, VFM Dell in the end :thumbsup:

    Why would you want to return out of interest ?

    I've seen posts on this forum that would suggest dell are to post other great deals within the next few days, and depending on what they might be i may be interested in those. If i was to order though i think i'd stick with it nonetheless.

    Because dell build to the customers specs i thought they might have been a little funny about taking them back, but it's good to know they're okay.

    Thanks Mike :thumbsup: Have added some rep for you

    To be fair Dell often have good offers ie free delivery or £50 off etc so you can be sure something will be just around the corner. However these laptops are such good vfm I can't see how they can trim much more off the price anyway.
