Dell 700 rufurbished DEal? Need help
I just placed an order on this system. I don't know if it was a good deal, I am just a slut for stuff I think I need and then I just return them.
Just kiddin. I am looking for a good deal, so ordered this refurbished system. It was $978. I really wanted an Intel 1.8 ghz, and 60 5400 rpm, and use the $750 coupon... but it was a whopping $1263 (added more ram)... so... I configured this
Intel Pentium M Processor 725 (1.60GHz/400MHz FSB) 12.1-in WXGA
Microsoft Windows XP Home
512 MB SDRAM 333MHz (2 DIMMs)
80 GB EIDE Hard Drive (4200 RPM)
Intel PRO/Wireless 2915
24X CD RW/DVD Combo Drive
Microsoft Office 2003 Software Guide
Microsoft Office 2003 Basic Edition
QuickBooks Simple Start Special Edition
McAfee Security Center with VirusScan, Firewall, Spyware Removal, 15-months
Operating System CD
8 Cell Battery
65WHR 8 cell battery (why 2? I don't know... dell crazy config).
Inspiron 700m UPG: 2Yr Ltd Warranty, 2Yr At-Home Svc and 2Yr Tech. Support
Total $1094 (If I used the $750 coupon configuring it like this it would be $1316.88)
So I did this configuration of what I would like, in a 700m
Dell 700 1.8ghz
60 5400 rpm ? Depends if Partha Deb gets out an 4200rpm out of the box
1gb ram (2 dimms)
Intel wireless 2915 WiFi
standard 4 cell
extra 8 cell
I don't know... after looking at the two, I would have gone for the second one. Yet the first comes with orifice for Windows, which I have a license for my orifice at work but not home. So... that is tempting. The hardrive 4200rpm is a drag, but it can always be sold for a 5400...
Come-on give me your opinions I can always stop the order before it leaves the building and become the most hated customer of dell for returning stuff I am not happy with... They must have already a profile on me and a mug shot... "If we can't satisfy ClosetNerd, we have failed in sales" That must be their latest motto.
