    Hey guys, is this legit? I got a Tech Bargain alert:

    ***
    Alert!
    The best laptop deals of the year are available TODAY only at Dell.
    $750 off $1500 coupon EQUAL $1500 laptops at HALF price!

    Visit the site for the details
    http://www.techbargains.com
    ***

    http://www.techbargains.com/news_displayItem.cfm/36008

    The TB site gives coupon codes for this deal. The Dell site mentions nothing of it. Does this mean I just place an order with Dell and then use the coupon at check out to get the $750 off?

    Dunno about "legal" but it works. I just "built" an Inspiron 8600 and when you get to the "My Cart" page there is a place to enter coupon codes. I cut/pasted it in & it shows a -$750 taking the total price of the notebook to $821

    The cart item is listed as:

    Dell Home Customers: Save $750 on select Inspiron™ notebook purchases $1500 or more (before tax and shipping)! (affiliate only online offer)

    Looks legit to me.

    I don't know much about notebooks. That is a sweet deal, right?

    Its ok.

    By the time you add the faster wireless card and get a CD/RW and upgrade to XP Pro I can buy a similarly equipped IBM ThinkPad.

    It's fine if you stick to what they want to get rid of and don't get any extras.

    Thanks for the link though.

    I priced 3 systems and they weren't a bargin to me.

    Then again I am a high level user. ;)
