Is this a good deal? Dell XPS 17 3D i7-2630QM 2.00 GHz 1.0TB Dual HDD memory @ £950


Likes # 0

Can any computer expert tell me if this is a good deal and worth to buy. My sister will buy me a laptop from US and send it to me in UK. It's Dell XPS 17 with 3D. The spec is as below

2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7-2630QM processor 2.00 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 2.90 GH Genuine Windows® Home Premium, 64-Bit, English 1.0TB 500GB 7.2k HDD x 2 (Dual HDD 500GB+500GB) JBL 2.1 Speakers with Waves Maxx Audio 3 + Creative SoundBlaster X-FI MB 1.2 17.3" FHD (1080p) 3D Display with 2.0MP HD Webcam & Facial Recognition (it's new way for security. no more finger print) NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 550M 1GB graphics Tray Load Blu-ray® Triple Writer (reads and writes CDs, DVDs, BDs)

This costs about £860 after any voucher code and discount. So it would be around £950 including delivery to UK.

Can anyone tell me if this is a good laptop with high spec and worth to buy? or I can find cheaper one with the same spec?

Please give me a comment so I can decide if I should buy it or not. I know it's expensive but I think I cannot find this spec in UK with this price.

Thank you.
