    One caution...be careful you aren't buying the computer solely because it is a "good deal" that is going away in a few hours. Computer prices go down constantly. Thoughts of my mother come to mind and the "good deals" she got.

    I was curious on how good a deal we were getting, so I did a real quick search. Dell didn't seem to offer a Inspiron 5000 with only 4GB of RAM. The minimum they'll provide is 8GB. Amazon has a similar one with a smaller hard drive for $335.

    When I worked at Boeing, we were offered a corporate discount on Dell computers. It seemed like a good deal. But it didn't come out much different than if I went to Costco and picked up one there with double the warranty.

    I'm not saying to not take advantage of the sale...just do your homework.

    Best deal available on a Dell is to buy an IMac.

    I would rather make payments on a Macbook than be given a WinDoze computer.

    If it weren't a Dell, I would consider it.

    You know what they say about opinions. As a system administrator for a very large K-12/church network for the last 15 years I have used hundreds of Dell and Apple devices of every flavor. There have been periods when each caused me more grief then the other for awhile. The last 5 years I have repaired many more of the apple variety. Each has its pros and cons. I couldn't make such general statements about either myself based on my experience. Wonder how you can?

    I'm a user...not an expert; that's how.
    Wonder no more, grasshopper.
    Now you know and you can system administrate yourself into oblivion.

    User experience. Enjoyment vs. aggravation for me because of the operating system. Most would say that a Honda is more trouble-free than a BMW. But we are here because we value the BMW experience in total (warts and all) vs. what the alternatives provide.

    I agree.

    We use Dells at the office for our inventory and book keeping as well as one in the warehouse for shipping etc.
    My 8 year old MacBook pro boots up fast enough that I'm on-line in 10 sec from a cold start whereas the PC requires and sweet talk depending on the day of the week.. Let alone all those updates on a daily basis.
    Now I must say that the Dells are generally decent computers but for personal use I'm sticking with Mac's.... YMMV

    I conducted a highly scientific research project to determine which is the better computer. When I was responsible for the dorms at a university we would get scores of computers shipped to us at the start of the academic year. The computers shipped were almost all Dell, Gateway (remember them) and Apple. I asked our UPS, FedEx and DHL drivers about the computers they picked-up for shipment, ostensibly for return for some problem. Gateways, unsurprisingly, were returned the most and Apples the least, with Dell nestled in the middle. I know there are unaccounted for variables in my study, but the results fit my bias, so I'm good.
