Any One In The Market For A Dell Latitude?

Recommended Posts

Mods - fell free to remove if this breaks policy but I know there are lots of IT people on here who may be interested in a (very) good deal on a Dell Latitude. I don't make any money on this at all and will point any interested parties directly to the guy I have been dealing with at Dell.

I'm out for the day, but if you'd like the same deal, PM me and I'll forward the guy's details.

I managed to negotiate the following beast of a machine (the sandy bridge processor is lightning and the 256GB SSD is worth £400 alone) for £1299. The same spec online came to £1895. This is about the only deflation I'm seeing at the moment so I decided to pile in.

my bro recommends pcspecialist.co.uk for build to spec - not in the market for anything new myself yet but by the time I am (3 years-ish) I hope they'll be a lot more of these types of non-brand websites around.

Have you tried it tho. We have a few around the office and the keyboard with number pad makes it unusable.

Looks like it will be the macbook pro after all.

Tell him I'll give him a tenner for it to take it off his hands (and I'm doing him a favour).

I invested in one of these myself a couple of months back. Cost £1400, looks like a pretty identical spec (processor may be different although mine is the 6mb cache i7 too) but with a 1920x1080 screen. It's a business laptop when all is said and done though.

Good machine, soon as you start looking at i7s with 8GB RAM you're up into 4 figures.

thought i'd do a quick check on the site i was recommended after that post.http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/enigmaIII-540/

configured to i7 8 gig 2gig dedicated graphics- 800 quid.

80 quid less if you dump windows.

build to spec will definately be the way forward, just as it was with desktops.

Can't argue with that price (just had a look myself).

I think it is the 256GB SSD that adds most to the price.

looks like that without doubt, adds about 400 quid on :blink:

gotta ask yourself whether it's worth that much (not imo atm).

anyway i'll stick with my i3 for now and look again in a few years :)

i like the idea of an unbranded laptop however when renewal time does come.

+1 for PC Specialist.

I got my AMD X6 3GHz, 16GB, RAID0 2 x 1TB 6gb/s + additional 2TB , ATI HD 75xx, TV tuner about £1600.
