Dell Vostro 1500 notebook & 19"TFT bundle. 1.4Ghz core2duo, 3gig, 120Gb, 128meg graphics $1173 deliv

Dell are this week making a big promo of buying a special they have which is a Vostro 1500 notebook with 19" TFT for $1199. I wanted to take a look to see how easy it would be to better their deal by getting a better spec'd Vostro 1500 for the same money or less.

Well here is my choice, not only is it a few bucks cheaper and a better spec, but it also has a free carry case with the deal. Or if you fancy a Belkin slip case then you get a $6.60 discount too.

Click through and enter ecode Q541223V-web into the ecode finder boxes, add the 19" TFT to the deal and select a 120Gb hard drive (unless your happy with less space for less bucks) Select the belkin slip case if you want for $6.60 discount and at checkout enter coupon code 3913182DC576 for 5% discount.
Dont forget there is bucky cashback to come too!

    Hi Mr Groper,

    It might be early but entering that evalue code comes back with a system that is over $1350 than the $1199 model with TFT.

    Plus I am not sure what you mean by the items under the (plus section).

    If you configure your machine with 19", 3yr warranty the system goes up to around $2000.

    Sorry it might be early but I have no idea what you hope to achieve with this config, i am confused.

    Its Sandy to you :)

    Dell sent me an email promoting the Vostro 1500 plus 19" TFT deal they have going for $1199.
    I used another better spec'd ecode to beat the price and posted it here E-Value Code

    Since I posted Dell have altered the price and spec on that ecode so the offer is no longer available.
    Pretty spooky the way it got altered after posting here though!

    I happen to have a pic from the web page with the price of the ecode before they altered it.


    Notice it says $998 for ecode Q541223V and the price has now jumped to $1354.

    I'm not crazy...Dell are trying to make me look like it though.

    hi sandy (just playing with you with the mr groper thing!)

    You would not have happened to save a cart, pretty good price ;)

    Shame its gone it would have been a bargain!!
  • sandgroper2007/12/04 09:54:26
    Well its sort of back on again, though not as big a bargain as it was before, still worth having though.

    Click through as in my first post and you will see you can select 1gig of ram for a big discount, do that, up the hard drive to 120Gb if you like and add the 19"TFT, at checkout use the coupon and it will cost $1220 which is $21 more than the offer dell want you to go for with screen, but with mine you get a carry bag and NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS with 128MB GDDR2 dedicated graphic memory worth $129.

    Clear as mud I guess but its true ;)
  • kearnsy2007/12/04 09:59:44
    nice one sandy!

    I would recon you should start a new deal ;)
    (so i can vote hot!)

    Ooh 100 posts (i'm feeling old now)
