    Gr8 Price...Its a shame the 5% coupon for systems under $1500 doesn't apply...I just tried :( Ok I purchased one, my total came to $817.13. I upgraded the CPU to the 2Ghz Celeron I upgraded the memory to 2GB I upgraded the hdd to 160GB 7200RPM (still cheaper than the included 80GB standard drive). I upgraded the O/S to XP Pro (this cost the most!). I needed this as it will be used in business! I upgraded the wireless card to 4965 Thanks Mr Groper!

    Error is still there, I just checked it again! Kearnsy, glad to see you grabbed one :)

    I think the Inspiron 1525 for $699 was a much better deal. Dual core, and 1440x900 screen! edit: given that it's a celeron, i don't think it's a misprint.

    Its not a bad machine for the money. With the RAM and HDD upgrades in it its a good buy. I still argue that CPU speed is the most overblown metric on a computers capability.

    I'm sure I have said this before but these new mobile celerons are not at all like the older desktop versions we remember. I have a Vostro 1500 here with a 1.86Ghz celeron and you wouldnt know the difference between that and a C2D cpu in most real world applications.

    actually if you upgrade it to the intel core 2 duo processor and up the memory to 2 gig, you've a very nice handy machine for a grand total of $771 after the code below is applied, Found a code that worked and you get another 5% off , the code is 3913182DC576 Forgot to add, i don't like the TFT with true life displays, they are glossy and the glare on them can be bad
  • sandgroper
    Well done jinx, I did try that code and all the others I could lay my hands on and none would work on the original deal, I suspect the base price is just too low. By adding upgrades you have tipped it into the zone where the coupon now works. The truelife screens are a very personal choice, you either love em or hate them, I really like mine, but can see why the reflections could put some off having one.

    nice find jinx! I'm still happy with the inspiron 1525 deal. 1440x900 screen more important to me. although im sure quite a few people love to have a dual core vostro in the $700s!

    :) - nice find Jinx.

    excellent work there Jinx, well done :flowers:

    I will second that Jinx. I have a very shiny screen on my HP and it drives me nuts sometimes.

    Meh, there was a Lenovo Dual Core laptop for $598 a while back with the same specs.
  • Bargrin
    if they fix up the error how much will this system then be, $52 more with a 80gb hard drive ? Officeworks has a Acer 5315 for $499 2ghz CPU 1 GB RAM Vista home basic but only 80GB HDD

What do you think?
