Dude... I got another Dell!


#1

Decided I wanted a laptop. Something I can put some music, a game or two and work files on. Like phone system manuals (I’m a digital telephone technician). I can also use it to program the phone systems through HyperTerminal as well (neat setup.)

I got pretty much the basic package, but I can upgrade it by myself if need be with more ram and harddrive space. (I’m only using 23 gig of my 200gig on my desktop, so I doubt I’ll need more storage anytime soon)

Anyway on with the specs;

Inspiron 2200 Intel® Celeron® M Processor 360 (1.40 GHz/1MB Cache/400MHz FSB)
LCD Panel 15.0in XGA Display
Memory 512MB Shared DDR SDRAM, 2 DIMMS
Hard Drive 40GB 5400rpm Ultra ATA Hard Drive
Operating System (Office software not included) Genuine Windows® XP Home Edition WHXP
Network Card Integrated Network Card
Modem Internal 56K Modem
Adobe Software Adobe® Acrobat® Reader 6.0
Combo/DVD+RW Drives 24X CD Burner/DVD Combo Drive 24COMBO
Wireless Networking Card FREE! Dell 1370 Internal Wireless (802.11b/g, 54Mbps)
Office Software (not included in Windows XP) No productivity suite- Corel WordPerfect word processor only
Anti-Virus/Security Suite (Pre-installed) No Security Subscription
Digital Music Musicmatch by Yahoo!™ Music- Entry level with 90 days of On Demand
Primary Battery 8-Cell NiMH Primary Battery (43 WHr)

This isn’t in any comparison to my desktop; 2.66ghz, 200gb harddrive, 1gig of ram, 17inch monitor, etc. But it’ll suit my needs quite well for what I wanna use it for. I’d like to be able to rip out that 56k modem and sell it then start to personalize it without paying the finance charges on upgrades.

627 bucks after the instant 150 rebate, plus they’re sending me another 100 dollar rebate with the laptop.

sounds like a pretty good deal. There were some killer deals on basic laptops yesterday (black friday) at a couple stores. Walmart had a basic HP for $378, and thats what you paid for it, no rebates. Best buy had a couple deals too for around $400. But for under $600 after all your rebates sounds like you got a good deal also. Two years ago I decided i needed a laptop and dropped about $1700 on one. I used it for about a month tops and decided id rather just use my desktop. So i ended up giving it to my mom. It ended up being a huge waste of money for me, although it was handy sometimes, but not to often. Sounds like you could get some good use out of it for work though. Congrats on the purchase

630 shipped for a 1.4 ghz computer is actually pretty cheap… You don’t even want to know how much the base price on my desktop was when I first bought it.
