Ordering from Dell

Ordering from Dell via their web site takes a few tricks if you want to save some $.

AND, Dell changes their web site often, The following is only a snapshot of what it looked like May/June 2008. Just look around.

  • Go to
  • Hover the mouse over the kind of computer you want; a menu pops up.
  • Click on Small & Medium Business.
  • On the next page find and click the tab Dell Deals.
  • Select the kind of system you want. (email or call me for advice).
  • 2GB memory
  • 120 GB hard drive
  • 24x CD-RW and DVD-ROM combo drive
  • UN-check Free Microsoft Live Business
  • UN-check Dell Network Assistant
  • UN-check Dell Computer Tune-Up

Generally, watch out for pre-selected options. Mostly you neither need nor want what they want to sell or there is "hidden" follow-up cost involved. Before you order please call me, there is some info I can not give here or in writing.

Recently (May 2008) I ended up with $454 total for a very well equipped XP notebook and today with $524 for a well equipped XP desktop including a 20" LCD screen!

Prices vary almost daily though.

Dell will just add tax, 3-5 day s/h is generally free.

Feel free to post any comment you may have.

Thank you in advance.
