Re: website for dell deals ?
The deals that you will see are on the Dell website and are direct from
Dell, but are not generally available to people who don't know about
them, or have a link to them, or have the secret "discount codes" to be
entered when checking out.
You have to watch this site often, some of the deals only exist for
hours and rarely for more than a couple of days (many of them have
limites, e.g. "available only to the first 1,500 customers). Also,
sometimes months go by without a REALLY good deal (there are always
deals, but they are not all created equal). The best deals will get you
essentially half off. Centrino (not Celeron) laptops with DVD burners
and otherwise well equipped in the $600 price range. These only happen
2-4 times per year. Deals that give you about one-third off are more
common, perhaps every 6 to 8 weeks.

at Dell) on closeout Toshiba models at Circuit City on a number of
Expect the best deals to involve rebates. Even at Dell. Sometimes they
also involve "free" ancilliary products with significant value (digital
cameras, multi-function printers, networking equipment, etc.)
