    Any ideas when dell and Sony update the site with more stock as most of them are sold out?

    dell updates around 3pm, iv noticed it update as early as 2:50, but most people have said its more like 3:15

    You can get a Dell from the Outlet for £300 refurbished or £280 'scratch and dent'... Just recieved my scratch and dent one (which has neither a scratch nor a dent) yesterday.

    Spec is Intel i3 370 2.4Ghz, 3GB 1333MHz RAM, 320GB HDD, 15.4" screen. Mine also came with bluetooth, hdmi out and wireless-N.

    You'll regret buying a Dell instead of a Toshiba or Sony. The latter have far superior build quality.

    Really dell are that bad? for £10 more with dell you get double the hard drive space and double the ram and a better screen?

    Extremely common problems on Dell laptops are broken hinges, broken chargers and broken batteries.

    whatsThePoint

    Was that the time when Sony supplied the batteries



    Where they the fiery ones? I'm not just talking about them, it's all of them, they're terrible.

    Friend 1: New Hinges, new screen mount, new battery and new charger all within 2 years, and now has another power fault.

    Friend 2: A few months after buying had to have a new charger, and within a year needed a new battery, and in the middle had to be dismantled to fix a lose SATA connection.

    In contrast, my Toshiba laptop is 7 years old and still going strong.

    wow that is quite bad but cant believe the difference in specs for the same price looks like back to square one again lol, thanks for the info much appreciated

    Have to disagree with Dell's being poor. We've used them at work for over 6 years, supporting well over 15,000 units (mixed models and ranges) and they get used in pretty demanding, heavy-use environments (e.g. primary and secondary schools). Can't say we've really had any bad issues and certainly not things like poor hinges, screen mounts etc on laptops.

    Also had plenty of family and friends using Dell's without any issues whatsoever. I guess it just shows that everyone has a different experience...

    In my experience with Dells, I've never had any trouble with them. Peodude, maybe if your laptop was in your friends hands it might have only lasted 1-2 years, not 7

    I had an N5010 4GB i5- had it in FS/FT (thought I had eradicated the fault before listing) which I bought from Dell Outlet, when you booted it, it would get as far as the win 7 logo, flash a couple of times then freeze, this always happened on first boot, second boot, booted fine.

    Rang them on Tuesday telling them of the fault, I was asked if I knew what refurbished meant, to which I replied well it doesn't mean faulty... anyway to cut this short it's getting collected on Monday for a full refund
