To reach this deal click through and enter ecode Q741125-web into the ecode finder boxes. I configured it to have the 2Ghz cpu for a $13 discount (thanks dell) and added the dvdrw. There are 2 higher graphics solutions available for this model if required.
I also chose to have 1 x1Gb of ram as dell charge too much for their offering, the notebook will run ok on just one stick and you can buy another 1Gb stick elseware much cheaper. Simple to fit too.

At checkout enter coupon 3914423893C6 for 25% discount!

    the thing is sandgroper, i think dell voids your warranty if you open up your machine in anyway... that included adding ram... i remember reading that somewhere don't have anywhere to confirm it

    companies like benq and asus have no problem with upgrading ram (it's even in the manual)

    The way I have selected to reach this deal should mean you also get your bucky cashback too, but I cant swear to it so take it as an extra bonus it it works for you.

    I own a Latitude D620 and rate it highly, very sturdy business quality machines with good backup should anything go wrong. Just look above at the service incuded with this deal!

    No they dont, it also shows you how to upgrade the ram in the manual for the Dells, even going as far on some models as removing the keyboard to reach the ram holders.

    So not a problem at all :)

    From the D830 user manual:

    Memory
    You can increase your computer memory by installing memory modules on the system board. See Specifications for information on the memory supported by your computer. Install only memory modules that are intended for your computer.

    NOTE: Memory modules purchased from Dell are covered under your computer warranty.


    For those at all concerned about fitting ram to this model, it will come with 1 stick already fitted into slot A which is under the keyboard, the stick you purchase later from elseware will fit in less than 5 mins by turning the notebook upside down and removing 1 screw, slot in the new ram in its holder and job done.
    Full details on fitting intructions are in the manual available under the support tab on Dells website.

    seems to be a de-facto standard these days that you can open a panel and upgrade. But having said that it does pay to be really carefull. Some of the HP machines that were sold with XP installed had a clause such that if you installed the vista upgrade which HP could and would sell you, you voided the warranty.

    I personally think in that case it was an argument you could probably have taken to fair trading and won but I could be wrong.
