    It seems that Dell's checkout has a problem right now as I cant get any systems to checkout.
    My advice if you want to try and take advantage of this shocking price is to keep trying until the checkouts fixed then pay up asap and hope Dell honour the price ;)
  • jdstacey2008/11/10 06:08:22
    Hot from me - but what's the normal RRP for this system? Any ideas?

    Please Please Dell I've been good, honour your mistake

  • queenshrew2008/11/10 06:31:46
    I asked hubby and he didn't like it at all and told me not to buy as the specs are lousy

    I guess it's a basic computer - perfect for a student..

    Not good for a gamer however :p

    But the price is fantastic for a basic computer! As it also includes a 19" monitor!

    A complete guess would be around $7-800

    [COLOR=Indigo]Thanks Golfy.

    Going by QS post, I can see this now going to Miss 8 as her computer needs replacing...

    Some might want to upgrade the monitor for an extra $25.30 ;)
    [/COLOR]
  • sandgroper2008/11/10 07:34:44
    To give you some idea of how Dell have errored on the price...

    They are listing the 220ST R221121AU with E1200 cpu, 1gig, 160GB and 17" monitor for $649!
    Upgrade that ecode to the spec I have posted and its $939 delivered so a very nice saving if its what you need.

    So grab this deal while you can as its sure to get dropped pretty quick once they realise.

  • nod2008/11/10 07:52:15
    nice deal! pick it up as a basic computer. not the fastest in the world but you get the monitor thrown in for that price
    hot vote from me and rep added
  • sandgroper2008/11/10 07:52:22
    Hope they remember our 3% Bucky cashback too :whistling:
  • nod2008/11/10 08:07:43
    a definite cherry with this offer :D
  • frednurks2008/11/10 08:57:10
    I dont think it's an error. It says limited time special price. Still a bargain though.
  • ISNAIL2008/11/10 09:01:40
    thanks!!!!
  • fairybelle2008/11/10 09:21:23
    Wow what a great buy...
  • sandgroper2008/11/10 09:58:14
    The cpu is
    Intel Pentium Dual-Core processor E2200 (2.20GHz, 800MHz, 1MB cache)

    Plenty of processing power for multitasking with common applications and relatively large files.
    Not a gamers cpu but then the graphics offered with this unit is not capable of the more power hungry games. Less demanding games should be fine though.
  • sab9882008/11/10 10:09:40
    add the coupon HK$7SKXL4F?932for another 5% off .. working :w00t:
  • melissanj2008/11/10 10:31:17
    i cant seem to find this computer?.... can someone post the direct link so i can find it? thanks
  • melissanj2008/11/10 10:37:17
    never mind i just read the ecode thing!
  • sandgroper2008/11/10 10:49:46
    Couple of things, if you use a coupon code you almost certainly wont get the Bucky cashback too unless its a coupon issued publicly for this deal.

    You might want to consider upgrading the monitor, the one it comes with is normal aspect and you can go widescreen for little $ extra with Dell 20" Entry (E207WFP) Wide Screen Flat Panel LCD Monitor (ANA, DVI) [add $25.30]

    This is a slim desktop so takes half height cards, just something to bear in mind if you are considering upgrading the graphics from elsware.

    I notice this deal has migrated to other forums now so if your thinking of buying I would do it sooner rather than later as once Dell start to see the amount of orders coming in they will realise the price is far too low and pull the deal or reprice it.
    We can only hope that they see fit to honour the orders placed.
  • melissanj2008/11/10 11:07:40
    :D im so excited!!! im so sick of my laptop!
  • ndro7772008/11/10 11:18:30
    wooohooo
    I've ordered 4 units for my work. Here's hoping it'll be honoured by dell and me score some brownie points with the boss! hehe

    GOT MYSELF ONE + %5 Discount with Coupon Code.
    ...
    Just got myself this deal but added the 20" Widescreen for $25 more.. BUT then I used a 5% discount code (HK$7SKXL4F?932) and it brought the price back to $375..

    The 20" Widescreen alone is $210 with $30 off (normally $250).. so this is an excelent deal for me.. and the first from BuckScoop as well.

    Do it people.. you can always sell it on and probably make profit from it as well.

    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
  • melissanj2008/11/10 11:56:04
    Welcome itstricky83 :D :D may there be many more bargains for you on buckscoop!
  • swloi2008/11/10 11:59:07
    Thanks sandgroper. This is a great find. Does anyone know the track record of Dell honoring their mispriced items?
  • Leonqt2008/11/10 12:49:58
    What did u guys put under company name?
  • melissanj2008/11/10 12:51:28
    i just put my name...im pretty sure thats what someone said to do in a previous post
  • Leonqt2008/11/10 12:58:45
    Ahh, looks like it's not working no more. Does DELL actaully send out their computers if they made a mistake?

    Well, not sure but someone above said that it's not a mistake, but a limited offer :)

    So I assume they should if that's the case! :D

    It's also great to see the poster on one forum credit the deal to you Sandy

  • jatin2008/11/10 13:45:51
    Hope that everyone who ordered gets their orders. It says on the DELL website - "MISTAKES: While all efforts are made to check pricing and other errors, inadvertent errors do occur from time to time and Dell reserves the right to decline orders arising from such errors."
  • maf1012008/11/10 13:48:48
    A big thank you for this deal!!! I ordered 2. I hope they don't cancel my order.
  • khaz0r2008/11/10 14:28:34
    Hmm.. i remember when they were selling 22" monitors for $49 and 24" for $149. They just sent a stupid generic email around saying that it was a mistake and they did not honour it. They did give back the full refund though.

    Hope those of you who got in quick for this deal get your computer, because it is just bad business if "errors" like these keep happening every few months.

    oh dear thats not good news :(

    i paid by direct deposit so that would be fun trying to organise a refund

    Don't worry, I paid by direct deposit too, the refund was easy. They just called me up to confirm my details and told me that they will refund it within a couple of days.
  • sandgroper2008/11/10 14:53:47
    I do hope you all get order confirmation emails but going on how many have been ordered on here and other forums I think Dell may be taking just too big a hit if they fill all the orders. Lets hope they do.

    If not then as long as your refunds come quickly you have had some fun and a big adrenaline rush while trying to get in quick!
  • admin2008/11/10 15:10:48
    depends how severe the mistake is. They made a really big one not that long ago where $300 items checked out at $25 - needless to say they didnt honour that one, but I have heard of them doing it with other stuff ups.
  • nod2008/11/10 15:12:27
    Lets hope it is first in first served then - that seems fair. It would nice if they honored a certain amount
    Great to see all the new Buckscoopers jump in and bag a deal Welcome all :flowers:

    Thanks again Sandy

    Did you grab one of these earlier this morning?
  • IainBest2008/11/10 21:30:32
    Thanks!
    Surely did - saw this deal pop up in my RSS feed and jumped straight on the phone to she who holds the purse strings :)
    And since I took advantage of the deal, I thought I'd better make an attempt to join the community.. If you'll have me!
  • thedreamer812008/11/10 21:30:39
    Thank You! I brought one today as well! Such a good offer! I brought a 20inch monitor a while back for like $250...who would of known u could get a PC for a lil more :D
