Re: Days of Supposed Deals (Business) Start today

If I had the money, I *might* have gotten the 15R in the last set of deals. Loaded with Win 7 Pro, I believe they were selling it for as low as $330.

I say *might* because I prefer the sub-12" "Netbook" form factor without the optical drive. Much more convenient when on the road and your work space is severely limited.

How bout a 120gb SSD for $457.

WTF?!?

I don't think so, and I've been following them pretty closely. Maybe one of the old Linux Vostros, or even one of the older Inspiron 15's, but I don't think a 15R has ever been under $499, and that's with Win7 Home Premium, not Pro. The lack of decent discounts on them has been really annoying.

It might not have been the 15R, but the specs on the machine that was offered were more than good enough for what I wanted to do with it, and Win 7 Pro was only a $30 extra. The only problem with it (aside from my lack of cash) was that it was just too big. I sometimes need to bring my computer with me in very tight spaces.

That's why I'm still using my Asus 1000HE netbook, now with an SSD. I could have it resting on a small table next to a wood chip dumper with the hopper vibrator active, and it won't be affected.
