I think Burch69 is saying he has a paypal account that for .......say .....$50 transfer of funds to it.... will get you that 10% and $100 off!!!
If you want value, go Dell, Its a bit of work getting those really good one day 50% or 50% off next 300 machines over $1500 but I personaly know of three who have. They were able to get way way better machines from Dell with these fantastic deals than anything they could have obtained from HP.
Getting a midrange Centrino machine new with all the bells and whistles, not a downgraded, check the cheapes of every option machine, for a little over $800 shipped. One of these three even had a $50 mail in that he sent in and received.
HP was like this last year as I did get a ZT with APP 6% $100 instant, 10% stackable, $100 mailin, free shipping, though I was still at over $1100. Its been neerly a year since you could do anything like that at HP. They must have caught on that everyone was ordering their machine this way and made discounts not stackable (most of the time) and not so many promotions at the same time.
Watch the Dell Coupon thread at the top. There is alot of good work by members keeping it up and sharing info.
