DELL Inspiron e1705 Vs. HP Pavillion dv8000t PLEASE HELP!!!

Threaded View
I am buying my first notebook computer and have narrowed it down to
these two models.  I have added a few upgrades to each of them:  2 g
memory, 2 year warranty, and 100 g hard drive.  And after all the
upgrades/rebates, etc. they actually both come out to around the same
price of $1,500.  So which one is a better computer for the price
(keeping in mind the additions I will have for them)?  I will be using
it for my small business and home use.  I dont do any gaming at all, I
do watch movies sometimes and I have alot of music and digital photos
(about 70g worth), and I dont really care about size/weight. I am
looking for performance, speed and also dependability. Any suggestions?
 Thanks so much in advance

First, you are paying way too much.  Dell had the e1705 on sale
yesterday for $899 as part of their "10 days of deals" promotion
(different deal every day).  If it doesn't show up again, watch EVERY DAY (even twice a day).  You will probably
have a chance to get it for half of what you will pay if you just go
blindly to their web site.  Dell has LOTS of unadvertised, secret deals.

Second, I'd never buy an HP because of too many support complaints that
I've seen.

Third, if you are going to get an extended warranty from Dell, get the
accidental damage coverage.  And since the cost for that is the same
regardless of warranty duration, you probably want to go for a 3- or
4-year warranty. wrote:
