Ok, I was looking at laptops to use during my trips to and from work, and since Dell had that $750 off deal, I have been almost obsessed with getting a laptop. The options that came up were:
- Inspiron 700m
- Inspiron 9300
- Asus A71V
I didn't really plunge into any of them because I was still wary of parting with a few thousand bucks. But yesterday, I was just looking at Ebay and found this guy in Alberta selling 50 700m inspirons ending the same day. So I got home, discussed with my wife, and ended up getting an Inspiron 700m for CAD (Yes Canadian Dollars) $760 with NO Shipping fees. Now, I thought that was a good deal, as I won't have to pay taxes and any other fees since I'm in Canada too.
What do you guys think?
CAD $760 No Tax, No S&H : Dell Inspiron 700m P4M 1.6 MHz, 512 DDR 333, 40 Gb HD, 8x DVD +/- burner, Wireless B/G, Extended battery (not sure if I'm getting the larger capacity one.. if it is, then this would be awesome).
True, Dell has these deals all the time, but even with the US $750 off last time, I couldn't get it lower than US$750 (+ tax etc would be more), and that was basic config with only 256 MB and no DVD burner.
I'm getting it for about US$600, no shipping, no tax + the burner and 512 RAM.
Where did you hear of the $1K off? That might have been where this guy got all 50 of them
