Any idea if Dell has any really special sales on President's Day or should
I just go ahead and order a 1150 laptop now.
Would appreciate any critiques of the 1150 w/2.8 GHz, 60 GB HD, 15" XGA,
512 MB, 24X CDRW/DVD Combo drive. Will be for personal use and won't rely
heavily on battery power.

Thanks,

Dick

deals change as much as twice a week. also deal differ in the 'home/small
office' division and the 'small business' division that you can order from
even as an individual. small business collects sales tax from all states
and home only collects sales tax in a few states... perhaps yours so there
may be no distinction on that point. right now the home division does not
have particularly great pricing on the inspiron 1150. it is often $100 to
$200 less than the current price. not a huge amount of money but a big
percentage difference in my opinion. there is a good deal on the inspiron
6000 in both the home division (deal of the week) and the small business
division (outrageous deals)... the small business deal is probably the
better deal and has a $100 rebate too. you may or may not like the inspiron
6000, but it would mean much better battery life (the only real negative
about the inspiron 1150 is battery life). if you want the 1150 then just
check out the pricing each day and you will know when to enter your order...
i think we are talking at most a couple of weeks of looking before the
better price comes around again... or buy now if the $100-$200 isn't that
big a deal to you. good luck.

Thanks, Chris. I've been tracking the price the past week or so. All the
changes could drive a person up a tree <G>

The Dimension I got last year through Home was taxed. This was the first
time Dell taxed a computer purchase of mine. Guess it was because Dell had
opened a couple kisoks (sp?) in Pa.and Pa. wanted their share.

there seems to be a good deal on the inspiron 1150 in the small business
division now...
2.8GHz, 15" XGA, 30 GB HD, 256MB, 24X CDRW/DVD, 1 Year = $843 + $? tax + $0
shipping - $100 rebate.
+$100 to go from 30gb to 60gb drive from dell that you mentioned, but this
drive is a 4200rpm drive. i would sooner by a 5400rpm drive for the same
money at newegg.com
+$100 for a second 256mb memory module from dell (for the 512mb that you
mentioned), i would sooner buy a second 256mb model from crucial for $50 or
a 512mb module from crucial for $95 (system total of 768mb).
be sure to avoid the 90 day warranty. the 1 year warranty is only $19 more.
