What I did was jumped on alienware site every few hours I noticed they tweek away at it often, many times I see minor changes, anyways I am at the pc most of the day so I figure it takes 5 seconds to pull it up and look, it was me who saw and ordered it for $749 but that went back to $849 (now $949) within like 45-60 mins, I wonder if tweeking they made a mistake and caught it? Did anyone else here order at $749 like I did that morning of the 29th?
I still check in on it but havent seen it lower than $849 since that one morning, doesn't mean there wont be a turkeyday sale coming tho...
Don't pass on the Sentia due to the sound "issues" I too in my review gave it a blah rating and went back after adjusting windows, realtek, winamp, mediaplayer, and cyberlink dvd settings, (in my review i talk more about that) see FTLOSM 3450 review in main sentia listing for many pics and my impressions.
If I had it to do all over again, I would pay the extra even as a base price cuz now that I have it IN HAND its awesome and worth the wait (i still hate fedex tho).
I got the 2.0 c2d and 100 gig 7200 rpm hd + dvd burner btw. I figured this gives me the best mid pricerange bang for the buck, I am loving it tho, about to go walk outside now to see when I lose signal and measure total distance for my review page update, last night i measured 81 feet and STILL had SOLID FULL "excellent" wireless G signal, that to me is amazing and easily worth a 5/5 score alone for wireless!
