Not in the UK I can't.

If there is a Dell UK outlet setup, you can look there but other than that, no options than new :(

We just got a bunch of new HP/Compaq business machines at work. I got to listen to the IT guy bitch about how many they have had to replace already. MB failures are damaging the HD and RAM.

The prices and the services and the overall build quality leave a lot to be desired.

What are the specs on the items wrt weight/battery life and the rest.

Need to know some more information about these Dell Coupons - Dad's going over to Canada for a couple of weeks so would be a great opportunity to take up this deal.

Wanted to know first and foremost if the Dell Coupon Deal works in canada - i.e. will they ship the item to Canada ? Secondly whats the best coupon deals that go down? I think I spotted one which was along the lines of $750 off on an item over $1899.

Lastly anyone have any ideas how long on average it takes Dell to deliver goods ?

Thanks.

Not a big fan of Acer here. That brand tends to be cheaper quality and the support isn't as good as Dell's.

I don't know about the coupons in Canada... just for the record. :)

iBook is no good for me - the programs I will be using are windows only.

I've decided to buy an Inspiron 6000 from Dell USA - I've got my configuration done it's around $1400 - thats with the 34% off offer which ends on Wednesday - sadly i won't be able to take up that offer as I've yet to orgainse someone to recieve it in the USA and ship it to the UK - have everything crossed that there will be another $750.00 off coupon coming out in the next couple of weeks.

Wonder if Sazar can get me any inside information :D

and i don't want to start an argument but wouldn't amd be better for a laptop because of their cool and quiet that would extend battery life?
The Pentium-M is designed to be a mobile processor. SpeedStep is essentially the same thing - the frequency fluctuates depending on CPU load, reducing power consumption as necessary. Laptops with the longest battery lives generally use ULV Pentium-M CPUs. :)

I dont recall the model #, but Toshiba put out a very nice machine with a pentium m that could be overclocked slightly to enhance performance without overheating (althought it might not be good for the procesor in the long run). I know a kid I work with runs unbuntu on his and absolutely loves it. Check out Toshiba's website. I believe he got his at bestbuy for $1000 or something.
