    Currently listed on their web site for £860 inc, but if you phone up you can get it for £648 inc. It has a 3 year warranty and has excellent reviews

    Only problem is a quoted 45 day lead time, but I have read other forum posts in which the poster said they had been advised by Dell of delivery being much sooner.

    They have raised the price to £1170. Do you think they'd still sell it for £648? When you say phone up, do you have to quote a reference number or can you just haggle by saying that friends got them for the cheaper price?

    Yes the price has shot up. But also the May 25% off promotion has finished too, so they may not be prepared to discount.

    I understand that the previous £860 price was always promotional and so would have risen at some stage, but with the May discount it was available for £648.

    I don't think you will get it now for the £648 price - you will have to haggle.

    Despite the quoted leadtime, I got mine within 16 days

    The strange thing is that Dell currently have it for $980 on their US web site, with a quoted 5-7 days delivery time. This is eqivalent to about £550 .

    On the UK website however it is showing as £1173 with a 45 day lead time. A couple of quid here and there can be accounted for by differing distribution costs / VAT rates, but when the difference in price is £600+ it is frankly disgusting.

    Nice one Dell (not). Rip off Britain anyone ....
