    Anybody know if there are any good coupons out there for Dell? I missed my chance at the $750 off deal, and wanted to know if there was anything similar....
    Thanks,
    Matt

    What exactly are you looking to purchase? A desktop, laptop, display, peripherals...?
    There tend to be different deals and coupons for different things, so let me know what you're looking for, and I'll try to find something for you. :)

    I'm looking at the preconfigured Inspiron 5160. The stats are below. I'm not much of a computer guy, but I think it's a pretty solid system. The price is $1100 with my company's employee discount, plus I just redeemed 25k American Express miles for $250 (I'm never able to use them for airplane tix anyway!).

    Do you computer folks have any thoughts on paying another $250 for the 3 year warrantee? Thanks!

    recommend going with 3-4 year warranty if getting an employee discount... it doubles the percent discount you receive...

    not a rebate but an instant off...

    plus you automatically get on-site service NBD rather than mail-in...

    I also suggest getting "complete care" which basically means dell replaces your laptop if anything happens to it (falls, cracked screens, spills, surges) basically anything cept fire/theft/intentional damage...

    i believe its the same price no matter how long you get it for (like 79 bucks)

    none of the other builders do this... :) and I have it on my inspiron 600m...

    the 3yr warranty v/s 1 yr should not be $250 from my experience...

    Thanks Penny....I tried the discount code, but it was expired. I have no idea what you're talking about with a dot pitch.

    dot pitch on flat panels is generally over 0.25 and less than 0.30 if that helps...

    makes less of a difference on a flatpanel than a CRT I think since most of them are about the same size...
