12% off at Dell Outlet with code until 23 May 2018 (part of 72 hour sale)

15
Found 23rd May
Only noticed this sale/voucher code earlier today when a pop flashed up.

No idea if it will stack with any other codes but it takes the sting out of the VAT that the outlet deosn't show.

As mentioned in the title only until the end of 23 May 2018.

I bought a nice laptop from DELL recently and it's really a good piece.
Don’t buy any XPS if you find coil whine noises troubling.

Is coil whine from power adapter, if so, can that be replaced?

Not, it comes from the laptop’s built-in fans
Thanks for Posting

Er, no. Coil whine comes from coils in the machine as the name suggests, such as transformers or other wound components inside where the glue isn’t sufficient to stop vibration through electromagnetic induction.

Fan noise is fan noise.

Thanks for clarifying my misunderstanding
My power adapter to my Inspiron does occassionally make that whine, will doublecheck if it is so.

Anything with coils in it can have coil whine (power supplies are a common one due to transformers). Some people are really sensitive to it, fortunately I’m not one of them so the XPS machines are fine for me.
Can this be stacked with student offer ?
My Dell Studio XPS laptop PSU from 10 years ago has coil whine as well, but it does seem to does seem to go quiet after running for a while.
More important is the terrible service I received from Dell when the laptop arrived faulty and they refused to take it back as I couldn't return it for more than 2 weeks to as I was away. The engineer who 'fixed' it basically replaced the motherboard and whole screen unit, and in the process damaged one of the hinges. The only part not reaplaced was the base casing, which includes a set of touch sensitive buttons, that swiftly developed the problem of randomly activating themselves. I would NEVER buy a Dell laptop again apart from something very cheap as I would expect that to be of poor quality. The laptop I bought was a great deal, and still cost me over £700 over 10 years ago, it wasn't worth the stress, oh and the VGA stopped being supported after 5years as it had a fancy Nvidia SLI setup

Let's hope it stays that way, if you need to rely on Dell customer service it doesn't exist. Take a look at any reviews and you'll see what I mean. They hus accuse you of mishandling or dropping it.

I've found Dell's customer service to be pretty good, better than most of the other brands including HP and probably the best of any of the PC brands (e.g. not Apple) - they also let you diagnose the issue, if you tell them it's the motherboard, they will probably just replace it without fuss. HP and Lenovo have been the ones I've had real difficulty with in the past.
