Your first and most important upgrade is shipping that computer to me. After that you'll be good.

Well I paid 1305. I guess i'm ****ed for 5 dollars.


Actually 1199. Tax and 'State environmental Fee' (california) got it to 1305.

Plus, i got everything i could get with it....Bluetooth, 9 cell battery, upgraded wireless card, things of the sort...

and with that UXGA True Life display...i bet it wont be 1300 shipped off of new egg.


I got it off of dell. it was originally 2100. Entered two coupon codes, and brought it down 850. $1,305.90.



I ordered it all and set it up. My moms paying for it. Its pretty crazy, its a graduation gift....but we're actually on the lower end of the money spectrum. I was really surprised. and happy. I hope i can play most things on max settings...seeing as i'm going to keep it oiled up and running smooth being my first 'personal' laptop.


Good deal?



or the greatest deal?


(Colbert Report joke) lol.


And i guess I'm a 'teh n00b' for buying a dell e1705. right?

I think Acers look like **** too.



DHVNPQVH294STT coupon code for $750 off $1999+ inspiron notebooks.

the 100 dollar coupon expired. I'm sure there's another one though.

Try Deal catcher.
