Oh how I wish Dell made a Tablet PC right about now. I just received an e-mail from Dell Direct Deals providing a 35% off coupon code good for Inspiron PCs and notebooks over $999. You can’t use the code for a Dell XPS as a result, but there doesn’t seem to be any other system limitations; just spec out your PC or notebook and enter LNB2339KQ35MMR as your discount code during checkout for the deal.
Just for kicks, I spec’d out an Insipiron E1505 notebook with an Intel Core Solo 1.66 GHz, WMCE OS, a TV tuner, 2 GB of RAM, 15.4-inch UltraSharp Wide Screen SXGA+ display with TrueLife, 100 GB 7200rpm drive, WiFi, Bluetooth and 8X CD/DVD burner. The list price was $2,025, but after 35% off, I could nab this config for $1,316.25 before taxes, shipping and handling. If you’re interested in receiving Dell Direct Deals, just hit their site up and register. I find that the deals are outstanding and the e-mails frequent enough, but not intrusive.
