Alienware TactX Mouse $29.99 (Was $79.99) @ Dell Canada *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 8, 2014 at 6:32 PM

Alienware TactX Mouse $29.99 (Was $79.99) @ Dell Canada *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Dell Canada has discounted the Alienware TactX Mouse from $79.99 down to $29.99 with free shipping today only.

The Alienware TactX mouse is designed to not just be your standard desktop mouse. Rather, it takes your gaming to a completely new level with:

5 customizable user profiles and 9 customizable buttons [as well as] vertical and horizontal scrolling with dual vertical scroll modes

The mouse also features Exclusive AlienFX customizable lighting, which will match your Alienware beautifully should you own one (I do!). They are also Windows 8 compatible if you have given in and upgraded your Windows operating system.

As the owner of two of these mice, I can give you a true report on the pluses and minuses of these beauties. First of all, they feel ergonomic in your hand and the buttons have a satisfying and solid click when you push them. The long cords was initially annoying, but when I started using my PC as an external monitor for my laptop while having the mice plugged into the laptop – suddenly the long cords become essential.

However, the cords are not of the greatest quality. Within the first few months the inner cord already broke through the braided outer. It has not affected performance whatsoever, but aesthetically it drives me insane.

I have owned my mice for a couple years now, and the scroll button just gave out on the one. This common problem with these Alienware mice seems to happen anywhere from a few months old (still covered by warranty) to never. I consider myself a heavy computer user – between homework, gaming, and working online – so I am very satisfied with the length of service time I received from that mouse. My second mouse, the one I am using right this second, is still working just fine.

Overall, I highly recommend purchasing the Alienware TactX mouse for only $30. This is the lowest price this mouse ever goes – so purchase one or two while you can. We have not seen this mouse at this price in over a year – since last Black Friday actually. I might purchase another one as my second mouse has that dead scroll-button now.

Sony SRSX5 Speaker $139.99 (Save $60) @ Dell Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on December 8, 2014 at 5:43 PM

Sony SRSX5 Speaker $139.99 (Save $60) @ Dell Canada (EXPIRED)

Dell Canada just started their 12 days of deals and some of them are so hot I think I just burnt myself Sony SRSX5 Speaker $139.99 (Save $60) @ Dell Canada (EXPIRED) Score this incredible Sony SRSX5B Portable Bluetooth Speaker for just $139.99, saving $60 off the original price of $199.99. As with all purchases from Dell, you will also receive free shipping.

Now, you all know how much I LOVE my sound systems and my music. I am a little audiophile but I still am on a budget. Out of all the sound systems that I have blogged about, I have actually purchased this one myself. The last time I saw it for such a good deal, it was available online so I booked my butt out the door and picked it up at a local electronics store. This time, you can score this fantastic deal online from Dell Canada – no driving or fuel involved.

This is a popular model to be on sale this holiday season, which is how I scored this exact sound system a week ago. Here is what the competitors are selling the Sony SRS-X5 system for right now:

  • $149.99 @ Future Shop Canada (9 in stock)
  • $149.99 @ Best Buy Canada (10 in stock)
  • $159.99 @ Sony Store Canada

All those are sale prices and Dell Canada is undercutting all of them right now. Now, the Sony SRSX5 is one of the best speakers you can buy in the $200 range. On most tech review websites that I frequent, they tend to argue between the Sony SRS-X5 and the Bose Soundlink (retails for $219.99 and never goes on sale) as the best for the near $200 range. This Sony speaker boasts a 20 watt 2.1 channel speaker system, a subwoofer with dual passive radiators, and can detach from the AC cable for up to eight hours of battery life.

The sound is crisp, clear, and really fills a room. I am listening to mine as we speak. Pairing is simple and I have never had any issues or much delay with pairing. The only issue I experienced was an initial skipping when I went a bit far in range. However, that problem is completely gone as I can now go anywhere I like in the house with my phone and reception to the speaker is not an issue. Switching between battery and AC power is seamless as well. You can also use the speaker as a speakerphone, which I have done while I hung up laundry. In addition, the speaker acts as an external battery allowing you to charge your phone or tablet off it.

For my money, as is obvious by my personal investment, this is the speaker to buy. This is also a one-day deal, so pounce on it my little Moosers.

Dell 28″ Ultra HD Monitor Just $299 (Save $200) @ Microsoft Canada (HOT!)

Posted by on November 30, 2014 at 2:54 PM

Dell 28 Ultra HD Monitor Just $299 (Save $200) @ Microsoft Canada (HOT!)

Microsoft has a sweet deal on this large Dell 28″ Ultra HD monitor for Black Friday. Originally $499, the monitor is now on sale for just $299 so you save $200 and receive free shipping on your purchase.

Details my lovelies! This huge monitor features a 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD resolution for crystal clear images of incredible quality. It will look like those flowers on your wallpaper are actually growing. This is considered a 4K monitor as it has four-times the resolution of a regular full HD. The non-glare LED panel makes this a fantastic unit for watching movies.

The P2815Q Dell monitor has all the ports you need to connect external devices. Enjoy an ample four USB 3.0 ports, three DisplayPorts, and an HDMI port.

This will make a great work monitor, movie-watching monitor, or a great monitor for your business. However, the monitor has too low a refresh rate to be great for gamers. This monitor’s refresh rate is 30hz, whereas gamers will want a monitor with 60hz for long periods of gaming. Eyestrain can become a real problem with lower refresh rates.

This is the P2815Q model from Dell so I price compared it there and anywhere else I could find it. At Dell, they have the original price of this monitor $100 higher than the original listed price at the Microsoft Store. The monitor is listed at Dell to retail for $599.99 and is now on sale for $399.99. I find that Dell is guilty of this a lot, boosting the original retail value so it makes their sales look more impressive. Personally, I am not impressed.

While this monitor is not available on Amazon Canada anymore, I did find some very useful reviews like this one:

Pixels! Pixels! Pixels! This has much more real-estate than my U3014 (2560×1600) which was almost double the price. As a programmer and someone who works with large documents, this is a unique capability for a bargain price.
Can be landscape or portrait. This monitor can display documents with 4K pixels top-to-bottom. Many of the large format monitors do not support this mode of operation.

I think it is cool that you can use the monitor in portrait position; I have never had a monitor that could do that. Hey Moosers, what would you use this monitor for?

Dell Canada: Dell 22″ Monitor $99.99 & Other Early Black Friday Deals

Posted by on November 25, 2014 at 6:07 PM

Dell Canada: Dell 22 Monitor $99.99 & Other Early Black Friday Deals

Dell Canada has released their Early Black Friday sale with deals on electronics, computers, televisions, and more. I found a sweet Dell E2214H 22″ Inch LED monitor on sale from $179.99 down to $99.99 with free shipping.

Okay, let us give a little context to this deal. We have not seen this good a deal on a Dell 22″ monitor since January when the previous version (E2213H) was on sale for the same price. Before that, you would have to go back to last Cyber Monday. As you can see, this kind of price on a 22″ Dell monitor is pretty rare – restricted to once or twice a year – so it is worth picking up.

This is an update on the earlier edition seen in January. The Dell E2214H monitor features a wide-screen with full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution at 60Hz (max). The monitor has LED backlighting, a fast 5 ms response time typically, and about an 84% colour gamut.

There are a bunch of other deals you can score during this early Black Friday sale as well. Check out some of these other deals:

There are plenty more deals where these came from. I rather like the Chromebook 11 deal because I refuse to spend over $300 on a basic laptop these days (unless it is a gaming laptop). I would love another Alienware computer but even on sale, it is a bit out of my price range.

My husband has a Dell tablet, so all the dell accessories are certainly interesting. When I do buy a desktop computer, I will certainly purchase my monitor during Black Friday deals because these monitor deals are sweet whether you buy the 22″ or the 24″ size.

Make sure to sign up for the Dell Advantage to receive 5% back in Dell gift cards. That could really add up if you are buying a laptop or a television.

Seagate 5TB External Drive Was $230 | Now $140 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada!

Posted by on November 15, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Seagate 5TB External Drive Was $230 | Now $140 & Free Shipping @ Dell Canada!

If you need more space to back up your files or your computer memory is getting filled up, Dell has sale on a 5TB expansion drive. The Seagate Expansion Desktop 5TB drive is on sale for $164.99 and if you enter the Dell coupon code KCMT5$TC6QK8MT you can get an additional $25 off. This makes for a total savings of $90 from the original price of $229.99, it’s now down to only $139.99 with free shipping.

There are a few reasons to get an expansion or back-up drive for your computer. The most important one in my mind, is having secondary storage for the things that matter. I kept putting off getting an expansion or even a back-up drive until my computer packed up and then it was nearly too late. Fortunately someone got it all back for me, but it is always a good idea to back up your computer! In case you haven’t used one before, the expansion drive is a really easy one to use. You just plug it in and drag and drop your files to store them.

Expansion drives are also useful because if you have lot of photos, videos and music, you don’t clog up all of your computer’s internal drive. For me, it adds up quickly because I love taking photos.  Then my computer slows down and it really impacts the quality of the performance of the machine. With the expansion drive I don’t have to worry about keeping too much content on the computer itself.

When looking at a price comparison of other Canadian retailers the Seagate Expansion drive with 4TB is on sale at Best Buy, The Source and Future Shop are all selling for around $149.99 and up, so $10 more and with one terabyte less than the savings with this Dell offer. The other 5TB machines from some of these shops aren’t on sale and still retail in the range of upwards of $200.

Some people I know have two drives especially if it contains precious photo memories. Often they choose to store them in different physical locations in case one fails, is lost or stolen. If you have been shopping around for a 5TB expansion drive at this price it would be a good choice to pick up a first or second drive.

Dell Canada: Dell 20″ Monitor Only $99.99 (Save $50) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 11, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Dell Canada: Dell 20 Monitor Only $99.99 (Save $50) (EXPIRED)

I have not seen a deal on this monitor for over a year so I figured it was a good deal to post. Purchase a Dell 20″ E2014H monitor for only $99.99 with free shipping. The regular retail price for this monitor is $149.99.

Whenever a Dell monitor goes under $100, I always take note. While there are many brands of monitors out there, Dell monitors are known for their quality and they hold their value a lot better than other monitors do. I resold my hubby’s basic Dell monitor for $40 when he got rid of his desktop when some people can hardly give away their monitors.

This monitor features a 19.5″ display with 1600 x 900 optimal resolution at 60 Hz. The monitor is backlit by LED. You can adjust the screen by tilting it, but you cannot swivel it from side to side. The screen has both an anti-glare coating and a hard coating for a prolonged lifespan. That is one thing that drives me insane about my laptop, the glare off the computer screen is something awful. Even if I turn up the brightness, it does not eliminate the glare problem.

The 20″ Dell monitor seems to be well loved by reviewers. One reviewer said:

So glad I choose this monitor to compliment my new dell desktop. The color display of the monitor is crisp and vivid. The monitor’s adequate size allows for a display that is easy to view. My favorite feature though is the clear crisp colored display. I’d buy it again without hesitation.

All six current reviews give the monitor a full five out of five stars.

I expected the monitor to come with the usual one-year warranty that most products come with these days. However, the tech specs say that a three-year advanced exchange service is included. This is interesting, as I would think any problems you would find in a monitor would show themselves within the first few years. I am curious if this would include dead pixels; I expect so.

One commenter pointed out that this monitor does not come with built-in speakers. They still argued that this was a fantastic monitor for the price, but also said that one of the reasons Dell could keep the price so low was because of not building in speakers. However, the reviewer was still impressed enough to give a five star review.

Dell Canada: Dell Duo Tablet Case $20 & Free Shipping (Save $13)

Posted by on October 29, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Dell Canada: Dell Duo Tablet Case $20 & Free Shipping (Save $13)

Dell Canada is selling the Dell Duo Tablet Case in black for just $19.99, which saves you $13 off the original price of $32.99. If you have a Dell Venue 8 tablet, then you need one of these cases.

A word from the recently educated: check the model number on your Dell tablet and make sure it matches the model number mentioned in the ad. This case is for the Dell Venue 8 Model 3840: no other Venue 8 tablet. Ignore the placement of the buttons in the picture that look like they are in the right place for your Venue if it is not the correct model number. My husband bought this (in blue) for his Dell tablet and it came with the area for buttons on the opposite side to the picture (fancy that) so it did not fit his tablet whatsoever. He owns the previous model. Thus, we had to send it back.

However, while it was here I interacted with the cover and I must say it is very nice. It is miles better than the crappy one they had for his model of Venue. This one is a tough yet flexible rubber that is thick enough to protect your tablet yet thin enough not to add extra bulk.

The two layers are both cool and functional: there is a shock absorbing inner lining and a hard-rubberized outer shell for dual protection. The rubber is textured for easy handling and you can keep a better grip on your tablet with this case.

I think this is a great deal because these cases are still so relevant. All the other case colours are full price and this case is for a tablet that Dell still produces. This case is for the New Dell Venue 8 (16GB) – model 3840 – that retails for $299.99 and is now on sale for $279.99. My husband has the previous model of the same tablet and just loves his tablet. The expandable memory is a real bonus as I gave him one of my camera’s SD cards and presto he has a 32GB memory for $0 additional dollars. I could give him my 32GB memory card for $32GB + 16GB = 48GB but I am holding onto that card.

Dell offers free shipping on all orders. Be sure to sign up for the Dell Advantage card and receive 5% off your purchases back on a gift card.

Dell Canada: McAfee Internet Security 2015 (1 Year) | Was $70 Now $7

Posted by on October 26, 2014 at 10:14 AM

Dell Canada: McAfee Internet Security 2015 (1 Year) | Was $70 Now $7

This deal is spicy, folks! For a limited time, you can download McAfee Internet Security 2015 (1 Year) from Dell’s website for only $6.99! The regular price of this handy computer application is $69.99, so you’re saving $63! That is some huge savings! Plus, since it’s a download, you don’t have to worry about paying for any shipping – you’ll be able to get the program on your computer soon after your purchase!

You just can’t put a price on the safety of your personal information. With McAfee Internet Security 2015, you can help protect your computer against a myriad of potential virtual threats and viruses, while keeping your information safe and secure. The McAfee name is reputable and reliable, and they have been providing their customers with anti-virus solutions for many years. In fact, the very first anti-virus software program that I ever had was McAfee’s, and that was back in the late 90’s!

It can unfortunately be risky to browse the internet and download files when you don’t have an anti-virus or internet security program. I’ve been through several unfortunate instances where I lost all of the files in my computer due to viruses, and I always made sure to back up my important documents and files on an external hard drive in case something like that ever happened again. McAfee Internet Security 2015 is a highly praised program that can help you keep your computer safe, and you just can’t go wrong for $6.99.

If you went to Staples to buy this version of McAfee Internet Security 2015, it would cost you $69.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this program from PCMag below:

Very good ratings from independent testing labs. Top score in our malicious URL blocking test. Accurate spam filtering. Can filter spam from webmail accounts. Many useful bonus features.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, my fellow deal hunters!

Dell Canada: LG 32-inch LED HDTV Now $230 (Save $120) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 16, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Dell Canada: LG 32 inch LED HDTV Now $230 (Save $120) (EXPIRED)

Dell Canada is selling the LG’s 32″ LN530B HD 720p LED TV for just $229.99, originally $349.99. You will also receive free shipping on your television from Dell.

I would not have even dreamed of a brand name 32″ flat screen HDTV for under $300 a few years ago, and yet here they are. I know you can get no-name versions for just under $200 these days, but I would spend the extra $30 or so for a brand such as LG.

Price comparing this unit was very hard as so few places in Canada carry it. I finally found it at two places. Through the Amazon marketplace, you can buy the same model TV for $359.93. Newegg Canada also sells this television. The LG 32LN530B is on sale for $279.99 with $21.99 shipping at Newegg.ca.

This is a great price and undercuts the price of the same size sale-priced Sony by $70. We recently blogged about that TV. The LG is a great deal for those who want brand name, but want to keep most of their cash in their pocketbooks.

Features:

The television is a backlit LED with 720p HD. It also features something called ‘MHL’ that allows you to charge, display, and control your Smartphone on the big screen. I assume this only works with android phones but I would be curious to learn more about it as it sounds like a great feature.

As for ports, the TV has:

  • 2 HDMI
  • 1 USB
  • 1 RF
  • 1 Component
  • 1 Composite
  • 1 Digital Audio Out

I find two HDMI ports the bare minimum a television should have these days, as you want one for your PVR and one for your console. Our television has six HDMI ports, which sounds great, but we never use more than three.

There are a couple negative reviews from people who quite obviously got lemon TVs. For the most part, the TV has excellent reviews averaging a 4.5/5 eggs on Newegg. One reviewer said:

Bought this for my father for father’s day. He had an older TV that was not a flat screen and was not high-def. After setting it up for him, it looks darn good, especially compared to his previous TV.

Other people use them for their spare room and many people use this as their primary television. The price is excellent for this size of television with HD capabilities. This television is part of an up to 50% off sale that Dell currently has.

Dell Canada: Eneloop Batteries $10 Off & Free Shipping

Posted by on October 6, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Dell Canada: Eneloop Batteries $10 Off & Free Shipping

Dell has a fantastic deal right now on Eneloop rechargeable batteries. I’ve blogged about these a few times before, about how everyone loves these long-lasting batteries and right now they are $10 off.

The batteries available during this sale are the XX 2500mAh high capacity batteries, so they aren’t the regular Eneloops. These ones are a little more expensive and longer lasting with a higher power capacity for extreme applications. You’d want to use them for powering digital cameras, game controllers and other devices that literally suck out your battery life.

If you weren’t aware, Eneloop batteries come pre-charged and hold up to 75% of their charge for one year of non-use and can be charged up to 500. You also don’t need to fully use the battery before recharging as it doesn’t hold a memory for battery life.

There are two packages of batteries available during this sale, both with $10 off. The first, if you need a charger, comes with it and the four AA batteries. Normally $39.99, this set is now only $29.99. I couldn’t find this exact set for price comparison in Canada, but you are basically paying $15 for the charger, as the batteries alone are now on sale for $14.99 from $24.99. Technically, this means you are paying only $5 more for the charger from the regular price of the batteries.

If you don’t need a charger and just want more batteries, then the other deal is for you. I did find a few price comparisons for you – NCIX has them for $24.99 and B&H photo video has the eight pack for $46.99, which is more than double what you are paying for the 4-pack.

Amazon also has the 4-pack on sale for $14.99, but you are going to have to pay for shipping, as your order doesn’t reach the $25 minimum. Dell offers completely free shipping, with no minimum, which makes them the winner in this case.

Dell Refurbished Store Coupon Code: 40% Off Entire Store

Posted by on September 10, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Dell Refurbished Store Coupon Code: 40% Off Entire Store

BUMP: This coupon has been brought back for a short time so I have updated the expiry. They have also RESTOCKED a ton of stuff on their website and have new stuff as well – be sure to check it out because this deal is wicked socks!

Dell Refurbished Canada has a coupon code for 40% off their entire website. It is rather mind-blowing to think about really, as refurbished products are already discounted from their original retail price and yet are in the same general condition.

Click here to shop @ Dell Refurbished Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 40BTS14
  • Discount: 40% off site wide
  • Expiry: 29th August 2014 14th September 2014

You also will receive free ground shipping on orders over $199. As you can expect from refurbished products, quantities are limited so grab any hot deals you see. Did I forget to mention that? This coupon code is valid on everything, which includes the Dell Hot Deals section. Stock changes almost daily, so check back often for new items.

Dell Refurbished currently has two Dell Professional Series P2210 22-inch Flat Panel Monitors priced at $155 apiece. You get a 22″ screen with a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050. The monitor has four USB 2.0 connectors as well as VGA, DVI-D, and DisplayPort. Both Energy Star compliant and EPEAT Gold-qualified, this monitor will not cost a lot of power to use. While this monitor is no longer available on the Dell website, I found the equivalent Dell 22″ monitor listed on Dell.com for $219.99 market price, on sale for $189.99. After coupon code, you will pay only $93 for the Dell P2210 monitor.

There appears to be a lot of laptops and desktops that are the same on Dell Refurbished. That may sound odd, but they may be lease returns or just a line that had some issues they needed to fix. There are a few Latitude E6500 Core 2 Duo 2.80 (T9600) business laptops in stock currently for $399. While the hard drive may be small, these are not designed for holding tons of information; rather they are designed to be super fast. You are working with a 2.8 GHz processor. Did you know your basic Macbook Air comes with a 1.4 GHz processor?  This baby will boot up and go through webpages so fast you do not even know what is what. I am on a gaming computer and it is only 2.3 GHz. After coupon code, this computer comes down to $239.40 and it would qualify for free shipping.

Rumour has it that Dell Refurbished will be restocking often, so if you do not see anything you like keep your eyes open and check back often. You have three more days to enjoy this deal!

For this and any future Dell Refurbished coupon codes, please visit the forum. Often they are put up there before we blog them.

Dell Canada: 12 Days of Deals

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Dell Canada: 12 Days of Deals

Dell Canada’s 12 Days of Deals begin today with sales on laptops, desktops, monitors, televisions, and electronics. Each set of deals lasts for 24 hours (5AM ET to 5AM ET). To get the best selection, always shop this sale early in the morning.

I linked directly to the electronics sale page, but you can also make a beeline for the 12 days of computer deals section as well. Here you can pick up a desktop computer, the Inspiron 3000 Small Desktop, for as low as $269.99 (was $299.99). This is a compact little desktop computer that gives you all the basics you need for computing with a 500GB hard drive, 4GB of memory and an Intel Celeron Processor (Dual Core). It should handle Facebook, Twitter, Word, and Excel programs just fine.

The electronics section has many more deals that are promising. Download a copy of McAfee Total Protection 1 PC 2014 for just $5, originally $59.99. I cannot say I have been entirely pleased with McAfee myself, but my computer has never had a virus *knock on wood* so it has been effective.

If you absolutely must have a mouse on the cheap, pick up a Logitech Optical Mouse for just $9.99. It is 33% off the regular price of $14.99. This is a corded mouse, so if you can spring an extra $5 I would recommend the Bestbuy wireless mouse deal that I mentioned yesterday.

If you are purchasing a desktop computer like the one above, then you will need a good monitor to go with it. Most desktops are bundled with a mouse and a keyboard so the only thing missing is a way to view all the content you will want to enjoy. The Dell 23 Monitor – S2340L is a beautiful full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 max) screen in a 16:9 widescreen format. The monitor regularly retails for $219.99, but is now on sale for $139.99. If this monitor is a bit too pricy still, you might be able to find a cheaper monitor during the 12 Days of Deals. However, if you combine the price of the desktop and the monitor, you are only spending $410 for an entire desktop computer – not bad.

Make sure to sign up for Dell Advantage before making any purchases, big or small – at Dell Canada. You can now earn 5% back in gift cards from Dell Canada on any purchase. Receive free shipping as well on any purchase with no minimum.

Dell Canada: Inspiron 15 3000 Series 15” Laptop Only $399.99 & Free Shipping

Dell Canada: Inspiron 15 3000 Series 15” Laptop Only $399.99 & Free Shipping

If you’re on the hunt for a well-priced laptop for some basic home usage or perhaps for heading off to school, check out the offer on this Inspiron 15 3000 Series 15” Laptop on Dell Canada now. The price of this laptop starts at only $399.99 and it’s got a pretty decent spec for that price.

The laptop is usually priced at $488.99 but you will see an automatic discount of $89 in your cart, bringing it down to only $399.99 with free shipping from Dell Canada.

A quick note on the specifications of this laptop:

  • 1.9 GHz i3-4030U processor
  • 4GB DDR3L Memory
  • 500GB SATA Hard Drive
  • Windows 8.1 (64Bit) English
  • 15.6 inch LED Backlit Display (1366 x 768)

It’s good to get an Intel i3 processor for this low price point. Last week, I posted a very similar offer on a Dell laptop from BestBuy. Even though that one was $100 more expensive, it had a slightly higher spec. But today’s Dell laptop deal is really good if you only need a basic model for some light home usage.

This Dell laptop is perfect for browsing the internet, watching streaming movies, writing a document. It’s not really going to be up to the task of running highly intensive graphics programs or extremely power-hungry modelling software… but it’s good for basic tasks. The 4GB of ram means that you may have issues if trying to multi- task. There is the option to upgrade your laptop… if you want 8GFB of ram, you’re talking about a minimum spend $599.99 on that particular model.

Want To Save An Extra 5% Cashback?

If you sign up to be a member of the Dell Advantage program, you will get 5% cashback on a Dell ePromotional Card for all purchases over $100 (excluding taxes and fees). That means twenty bucks back on this laptop alone, never mind any other purchases you intend to make. Register here if you are interested! The send you out a promotional gift card which you can then make use of on site at a later stage.
