I was at Dell website looking at ultraportable notebook that has a combination of performance and ultraportability, so I ended up looking at Dell Inspiron 700m. Little that I know that there is a $750 coupon going on now. So I decided to go with the cheapest configuration and applied the coupon, and the final price came out to be $449. The configuration consists of 1.6 Ghz. CPU, 40 GB hard drive, DVD/CD combo, 256 MB RAM, 4 cell battery. I said to myself gee Dell might as well give away their laptops for free. I was looking at 12" widescreen notebook, and everywhere they sell it for at least $1500, but with the configuration a little bit better but not by much. I don't know how in the hell Dell could sell the 700m for $449. To me that is nuts. I thought the 700m might be a cheap product, but when I went to one of Dell's stores in the mall and actually saw the 700m. I was totally impressed with the LCD display, and its compactness of about the size of 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper. I said to myself WOW.
