there is no dell store, there is no place you can buy a new dell, from dell and walk out with it from a store, they simply do not exist. i have heard people saying they are rare, but they just dont exist period.
common myth 2) prices online are better than at DDS (dell direct store)
you would be supprised how many people swear they got their DHS (dell home systems) PC cheaper through the standard web page, this again, is simply not possible, as DDS uses the standard web page to place orders , sometimes the sales rep can take a chunk off (usualy $100 at the most, or 5% if you go with dell finance), if you have no affiliate coupons , and no epp or small biz access, go to a dell direct store in your local mall and ask if they have a coupon for buying today - the quickest and cheapest way for "joe smith" to get a dell.
common myth 3) cant i just go pick it up from the factory and save the shiping charge?
i dont know if there is a plant neer you , but they just opend one in the county i live in (forsyth county north carolina) and its twice the size of the one in texas. but no, you cant lol
srry , had a long day at work
