    I just checked the price of this in 2 other countries and its looking like they got the price wrong! The other Au ecode for this model is priced up at $3598 All I can say is grab it quick if you were waiting for it to appear as it looks too cheap by around $800 to me.

    I was thinking it looked a little cheap for the spec. The equivalent HP without the 7200 spin drives was selling for about 3.6k Thats a pretty good machine.

    That really is an awesome price!!!!! I suspect we will all need to be quick if we want to pick this offer up A big thanks Sandy

    here's a fairly similar spec 15" Lenovo ... Lenovo ThinkPad T61p $4699 and a lesser spec'd Sony VAIO AR47G for $3299

    I just popped a small addition in your title for this deal Sandy, I hope you don't mind.

    That is a pretty amazing saving then

    Why not fully spec one up, for a tad under $9000 RAIDed 64Gb Solid state!!!
  • nod
    $9000!!!!! :eek: You are a serious gamer then Kearnsy?? The 3% cashback on that would actually be a very nice sweetener :)
  • kearnsy
    Not at all ;) I do like the solid state hard disks though. I am waiting to see the 64Gb put onto the M1330 model before purchasing though. Also guys it looks as though the EPP 8% discount works on this XPS model. It does not work on the M1330, so it might be an oversight on Dells part. If you configure the system to $3000 you get the 8% (only if you are eligible for it of course). The 8% discount brought my $9000 beast down $700. And no I am not going to purchase :)

    Those solid state hard disk get me drooling although I reckon it'll be a while before the price is reasonable enough to justify getting one. Ta for the heads up on the EPP discount.

    this must be one of the early PC adopters of backlit kepboards (or am I wrong?) - I personally still love it on my mac. It bugs me having to squint to see what keys I am trying to press.

    This is an awesome deal for an XPS machine, if you ask me. Question: How do you get the $2678.50 price at checkout?

    Short answer, you cant anymore! Maybe the thread title should be changed... I believe Dell did some tweaking on this earlier today and the system is now the price that it had on the main page $2899. I think they have increased the warranty to a 2 yr onsite standard to make up for the difference. Hope this helps. Damien

    Still a good price considering those specs. But I'm not sure if I really want to game on a lappy!!!! Thanks, Damien.
  • admin EDITOR
    Ta Damien - I'll leave Sandy to go check it out - he might be able to find another way around it. Does make me laugh - you have to be sooo quick with some of this stuff.
  • sandgroper
    Nope, $2899 is now the price you have to pay, I already tried all the coupon codes on it before I posted the deal. As said elseware only epp discount works and then you need to up the spec to $3000. Its still cheap though compared with other countries intro pricing. Still Bucky cashback will be a nice lump back on that deal:D
  • admin EDITOR
    Cashback will be in the region of $73 or so.

    Shame it's gone up in price a little bit, you gotta nab those bargains fast!!!
