Dell Rocks - a new machine for mom-in-law

My mother in-law has been getting hand me down machines for about five years.  When you are on a fixed income, the luxury of a new PC or laptop is a bit far removed.  This time however she wanted a new machine and kicked in a couple of hundred bucks.  So I kicked in a few myself and decided to take advantage of a Dell deal on a new Dimension.

She's getting a 5150, Dual Core 2.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 80GB hard drive, 19" flat panel monitor and 3 year warranty for $549.

Oh, and I ordered it Sunday afternoon while the Dallas Cowboys were getting beat.  It arrives today and that's with free shipping.  Ordered Sunday, shipped Monday and arrives Tuesday.

Not bad eh?

UPDATE: It just dropped another $50 to $499.  See http://www.dell.com/content/products/features.aspx/hot_offers_dt?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd for details.  Expires 9/13.

  • The Cowboys didn't get beat.. they were practicing a "Character" drill... yeah, that's it.
    Besides, they didn't lose.  The ref prematurely voided the game....
