» Dell Coupon Codes & Dell Computer Coupons

Save $400 on all Inspiron™ notebook purchases over $1299 (before tax, fees, shipping & handling) in Dell Home.
For this offer, enter Dell Coupon Code: SDK3J937B23KTK

Save $200 on all Inspiron notebook purchases over $899 (before tax, fees, shipping & handling) in Dell Home.
For this offer, enter Dell Coupon Code: 2G81689?4FMXFC

Some other good coupons on that site, too, if you must go Dell.
Yeah, I couldn't find any coupons. I knew Dell did them, that $400 off one is awesome. I can configure a $1400-1500 Inspiron 1420 and get it for the same price as the quoted ones above!
Of course, I'll need to sell this dang laptop before Jan. 31st which isn't looking too likely. I know Dell will have more coupons, but this is a pretty good deal right now.

I would stray away from all three, intergrated graphics is garbage. Even if not gaming, the overall sytem runs smoother with a dedicated video card.

You can adjust the graphics chip to use less power when running on battery.
