Normally when you are looking at purchasing a Dell laptop, you can almost always get at least 20% off. This is normal. If you are looking for a deal though, you can usually find that Dell laptops go on sale every week.
30% off represents a pretty good deal
35% off is a great deal
40%+ off is a fantastic deal
50%+ off is an unheard of deal
Right now, Dell is clearing out their older Precision laptops at 50% off. This is the M4600 15.4″ laptop. I have never personally seen more than 50% OFF of a Dell laptop. This makes the high-end laptop extremely affordable.
If you are looking to spend $699 on a laptop, here’s what you get:
- Core i5-2520M dual core
- 2GB ram
- 320GB 7200 rpm hard drive
- 1GB amd M5950 graphics
- 3-year in-home warranty
- Free shipping
I know that’s not a spectacular machine in terms of what you can get on the retail front, but keep in mind that this machine can hold 2 hard drives, plus a Solid State Drive, and 4 memory sticks of RAM. Plus it is much more durable than the consumer (Inspiron) line of machines. It also includes a 3-year in-home warranty where they will come to your home or office to fix your computer, usually within 1 or 2 days. That alone is worth the price.
If you add memory or hard drive space, those additions are also 50% off!! SO bump up the machine to i7-2760qm quad core, 4GB ram, 1080p monitor, 750GB hard drive and you’re at $1076. Still a good deal for a quad core machine.
