Default Best Typical Dell Deals???

I see on fatwallet that I can get 25% off an Inspiron that's $1500+...but is this a really good deal? Or do they regularly offer better discounts?

Cool...thanks for the info. Is there a "%-off" I should be shooting for? I tried to find "historical" coupons on those sites, but could not find anything...seems like that would be good information to have...

750 off 1500 hasn't happened for a month or so. But it happens usually a few times a quarter. Otherwise $500 of $500 is good.

Here's an additional tip for getting a great deal on Dell laptops.

do not buy any accessories to get it over the $1500 mark, instead go for upgrades to processor, screen, vga, and warranty. RAM, batteries, DVD players, wireless cards (bluetooth & wifi) can all be obtained elsewhere for 1/3 to 1/2 what Dell wants to charge and is easily installed. RAM is one of their biggest markups -- get this at crucial.com instead. The other stuff can be obtained from froogle.com or ebay. I just bought a Latitude D610 barebones and just did this... works well.

Remember, if you order new from Dell, it might be 2 weeks before you get the laptop, so you'll probably get all the accessories first.

Thanks for the tip. I will definitely remember this. Especially if they run one of those $750 off any $1500 laptop...I'm going to try and wait that sale out since we don't HAVE to have a new computer right away.
