Deal Of The Day: $350 Off Dell Vostro 460 With 20-Inch Monitor

By David Ponce

We like bundles very much because that’s often where you get the best deals. And you also have less thinking to do; things are just already prepackaged for you. Today for instance you’re looking at the Dell Vostro 460, a small business type machine which will come bundled with a 20″ LCD for $579. And yes it’s shipped. For that price you get a Core i7-2600 3.4GHz “Sandy Bridge” CPU, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD. One reviewer described the Vostro 460 as such: “The Dell Vostro 460 is a full system at a reasonable price, and it performs well. If you’re seeking a fast performer to get work done, the Vostro 460 is worth a look.”

Deal Of The Day: Dell Vostro 3750 At $50 To $300 Off

By David Ponce

It was just yesterday that we were talking about a deal on a Dell Vostro 3550 and today we’re back with the Vostro line. See, the 3550 was a 15-inch laptop and it happens to have a larger cousin in the Vostro 3750. 17 inches is a lot of laptop for a small to medium business, but according to NotebookCheck, Dell “has a impressive notebook with a 17.3 inch display in its array with the Vostro 3750. It manages the balancing act between the consumer and business market.”

Aside from the internals, new in this laptop from the previous generation is a refreshed aluminum/plastic case that comes in three colors. And today’s deal will have you saving $50 on models over $699 and $100 on models over $899, along with additional instant rebates. For an idea of what that means, the Core i5 model with 6GB DDR RAM and two USB 3.0 ports, 1600 x 900 LED-backlit anti-glare LCD, HDMI, HD Webcam, 802.11n WiFi, 34mm ExpressCard, eSATA, optional backlit keyboard, 8-in-1 card reader, optional Blu-ray and Windows 7 pre-installed OS usually sells for $899. But today you get $150 off instantly, and an additional $100 off coupon leaving the machine at $649.

Deal Of The Day: Core i5 Dell Vostro 3550 Starting At $649

By David Ponce

One reviewer’s verdict on the Dell Vostro 3550 reads as such: “It’s hard not to like the Vostro 3550. It looks good and feels comfortable to use. We like its backlit keyboard and huge touchpad, and it has a useful array of ports along its edges.” Indeed on the side you get “two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, eSATA, 8-in-1 Card Reader, ExpressCard/34”, while on the inside there are Core i3, i5 and i7 configurations that can make this machine as fast or as fastest as you’d like. Today’s deal on the Core i5-2410M 2.3GHz processor also comes with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB 7200RPM HDD. Normally selling at $899, $250 in rebates will take that down to $649.

Deal Of The Day: Dell Inspiron 17r At $500

By David Ponce

Writing for the DOTD column is beginning to make me feel like the people who work at Walmart, “always rolling back prices”. Sounds cheezy, but that is exactly what happens with these machines over time and these deals are the mechanisms by which they do. Take today’s for example. It’s Dell’s Inspiron 17r laptop, which we wrote about not two weeks ago. Back then, the base Core i3 Sandy Bridge model started at $549. Today, that price after rebates stands at $499 with free shipping. Features on this 17-inch laptop are, like last time: “HDMI v1.4, two USB 3.0 ports, 8-in-1 card reader, 1-Megapixel HD webcam and more.”

Deal Of The Day: Dell 23-Inch Monitor For $160

By David Ponce

I bought two 22-inch monitors about a year and a half ago. I wanted my desktop to look like a proper geek’s workplace, though to be honest I had no real need for them. They were Acer’s and at the time were the least expensive on the market, at $230. Well, of course the passing of time does wonders to prices and so today we see Dell’s 23-inch E2311H selling for a palatable $160, after a $68 discount. For this price you get “LED backlit technology, 1920 x 1080 resolution, Energy Star 5.0 recognized, DVI-D and more…”, plus it’s shipped for free!

Deal Of The Day: Dell Ultrasharp 30-Inch Monitor At $1,174

One of the nice things about deals is that while you may miss out on one now and then, sometimes they come back. Like today. Last time we mentioned this monitor from Dell, the U3011, an impressive 30-inch IPS panel, it was getting a chunky $375 discount. Well, today it’s getting the same discount again. That means the monitor that usually sells for $1,499 is going for $1,174. Sure, that’s a lot of cash still for a monitor… but it’s a really nice one. A CNet reviewer has this to say: “Simply put, the Dell UltraSharp U3011 is the best 30-inch monitor we’ve yet seen. Not only does it deliver great performance–which is expected from most devices running at a 2,560×1,600 resolution–but it also has tons of connection options and an OSD with a surprisingly high number of calibration features.”

Here’s a quick refresher on the spec sheet:

Features 2,560 x 1,600 resolution IPS panel, 7ms grey-to-grey response time, 100,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 7-in-1 card reader, 1 USB 2.0 upstream port, 4 USB 2.0 downstream port, capacitive-touch switches for setup and more. Accepts multiple video inputs including 2 x HDMI, DisplayPort, 2 x DVI, Component & Composite.

Deal Of The Day: Dell Vostro With 22-Inch Monitor For $399

By David Ponce

The last time we looked at this deal, the Vostro 230 was being paired with a 24-inch monitor and the bundle was selling for $419. This time around, we’ve lost two inches on the monitor, but we’ve also lost $20 on the overall bundle price. Coming in at just under $400 after a $291 rebate, the Vostro 230 will fit right into your business without breaking the bank. For this sum, you get a 3Ghz dual-core processor and “3GB DDR3 1333MHz memory, 250GB Hard Drive, GMA X4500 graphics, Microsoft Office Starter 2010, Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit OS, Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services 15-months subscription and bundled Keyboard + Mouse.”

There aren’t a ton of reviews of this machine on the Internet, but that’s because the Vostro is a business line and this means little by way of excitement. No fancy graphics cards, liquid cooling or jet-fighter aesthetics. Like we mentioned last time, what you do get is great value and dependability.

Deal Of The Day: Dell Inspiron 17r Starting At $549

By David Ponce

We’ve mentioned the Inspiron line before, only that time it was in reference to the smaller 14r, the 14-inch cousin to today’s 17-inch 17r. We had referred to the Inspiron as the “workhorse” line of laptops at Dell, and this still holds true of the larger version, which some reviewers have described as “very solid indeed, and there’s nary a hint of creaking or unwanted flex. Overall then, the 17R is very attractive and well-built, albeit somewhat high-maintenance.” High maintenance of course doesn’t mean high cost, as the Core i3 Sandy Bridge version of this machine starts at $549, while the Core i5 is at $649 after $278 in rebates. All models come with “HDMI v1.4, two USB 3.0 ports, 8-in-1 card reader, 1-Megapixel HD webcam and more.”

Hurry though, because this deal ends today.

Deal Of The Day: Dell Inspiron One, All-In-One Machine For $500

By David Ponce

All-in-ones are interesting machines, if only because they look like they’re trying to please you. It’s like they’re saying, “hey, like me, because everything you need is in one place!” And indeed, we have been known to show our affections to a few. The model currently on special, the Dell Inspiron One 2305, was going for $649 six months ago. That price has now dropped to $500 with today’s $100 coupon. For that price, you’re buying a 23-inch machine with “dual-core AMD processors and ATI HD4270 graphics but upgradable to multi-touch display, quad-core processors, dedicated graphics and more.” Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

“Dell’s higher-end Inspiron One 2305 has everything we’d look for in a home entertainment PC. It’s not the fastest computer out there, but it’s capable where it counts, and even plays some games. Forgive Dell’s intrusive bundled backup software and you’ll walk away with one of the better Windows-based all-in-ones available.”
