    Too late I realise, however someone has just asked me about this one, which with £100 cashback looks a very tempting purchase!

    Prepare for it to arrive with bits missing. I ordered a top end XPS 8500 and a huge monitor. PC arrived (a day early) and guess what, the screen had not arrived and I phoned them and they said that the monitor was still in Poland and I am in the UK. Told them to shove the monitor where the sun does not shine and asked for a refund. As soon as the PC arrived I went straight to the local John Lewis and picked one up for half the price. Same size, different manufacturer.

    I have ordered fromDell successfully in the past, more than once. As this is a laptop, I sincerely hope it comes with the screen attached!

    Do you have EES at either of your schools? You could then acquire a copy under the home use agreement.

    Would this still be the case if one of the schools uses a different av / anti malware solution be it forefront or nod32 etc ??

    I just remembered that before I read this post and both my schools have it. We have HUP on our home PC through my husband's employer, so I shall do it through one of mine

    I will be sticking MSE on it , as usual, which costs nothing.
