What is the most that you would pay for a laptop? Well, Dell UK must think that some people have cash to burn as it has listed a version of the Precision 7720 for over £7 million on its website. That is ex. VAT and delivery too, although you would be apparently saving over £3 million. A true bargain then.

The Dell Precision 7720 has sure increased in price since we reviewed it last year. Dell UK is currently selling the laptop for an eye-watering £7,001,726.28 on its online store, although the company has supposedly reduced it from £10,002,466.11, which is a saving of £3,000,739.83. Keep in mind though that this is before 20% VAT and delivery, which brings the price up to at least £8.4 million.

The Precision 7720 is marketed as the "world's most powerful 17-inch mobile workstation", but you do not get much for your money. The device variant only comes with an Intel Core i5 6300HQ processor, an NVIDIA Quadro M1200 GPU with 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM, a 500 GB 2.5-inch 7,200 RPM HDD and one stick of 8 GB DDR4-2400 non-ECC RAM. Not great value for over £7 million. By contrast, you could buy a 512 GB version of the iPhone XS Max 5,798 times for all your friends and family.

We suspect that Dell UK will correct the price soon, but this is the second time that the company has done this in three months. Back in November, The Register spotted a Precision 5530 selling for over £13 million on Dell UK's website, which makes the Precision 7720 somewhat of a snip in comparison.
