    How to get this deal

    To achieve the above price/spec: Remove the 17" monitor then add the 10% off discount code (see vouchers - your welcome to PM me if you are having any problems with the code) at the checkout.

    Tip: Always take the offer through to the checkout. At this point all promotions will be added giving the best price, it's also the area where you can add any available discount codes.

    Upgrades to consider

    Dell A225 Speakers add £10.00

    McAfee Security Centre™ 9.0 - 15 Month Protection add £10.00

    Logitech® QuickCam Pro 5000 [£20.57] Get 50% off!

    250GB (7200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive with 8MB DataBurst™ cache add £20.00

    AMD® Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ add £30.01


    Accessing Dell's website

    If you are having problems getting Dell's site to load an offer via Rpoints then try clearing cookies then logging back on and starting over. If this doesn't help then check any third party programs that you are using that could be affecting access.

    Tip: When you click the above deal and see 'Click here to visit Dell UK and earn points' just click this once and allow the link to naturally complete, several clicks could cause the direct linking to fail which would simply send you to the home page or worse, give an error message.

    Hi ST,
    Hope this message finds you in the very best of health.
    First and foremost, many thanks for all the contributions you make to Rpoints: your obvious expertise in computing matters is something that a great many of us benefit from and very much appreciate.
    I tried applying the voucher code listed in the vouchers section against the Inspiron deal you posted, but I couldn't get it to work. This is not too great a disappointment, as to be truthful, I think perhaps the vostro 200 or better still the vostro 400 would be a better buy. Any ideas if the code would work for the Vostro range, or is it Inspiron specific.
    Any advice would be gratefully received!
    Regards,
    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Firstly, thanks for the kind words.

    The 10% off voucher code that I added today is specific to Insprion 531 systems. With regards to Inspiron VS Vostro - currently Dell (AFAICS) are only offering the £60 shipping discount for Vostros if you go via small business, which means that your rights are affected (IE: no distance selling regulations - this may or may not be a issue for you but I thought it best to point it out) where as there's several Inspiron systems that have the shipping discount via Dell home.
    If you let me know your budget and whether or not you require a monitor with the system then I could advise on the current deals (your welcome to PM me again should you prefer).
