Just a few weeks ago, Dell cut
prices on its Inspiron E1705 and D620 models to below $1,000.
is at it again and has slashed prices on the popular dual-core
Inspiron E1505. $1,234 used to get you a T2300 Core Duo processor
(1.66GHz), 80GB 5400RPM hard drive, 1GB of memory and a DVD burner.
Today, you can get all of that for $699.
Dell has also dropped prices on some of
its desktop models as well. $349 will get you a Dimension B110 system
with a Celeron processor, 19" monitor and a not even acceptable
256MB of memory -- thankfully you can get a 1GB memory upgrade from a
number of online retailers for a reasonable amount of money.
Dell's sudden generosity is for today
only, so if you're in the market for a new desktop or notebook, now
could be your chance. ZDNET reports:
The price cuts in part stem from
discounts on components. Excess inventories of processors and other
parts are causing manufacturers and distributors to cut prices to get
rid of inventories. Similar hot-spot deals will likely pop up at
retailers and the Web sites of direct PC sellers over the next few
weeks, if history is any guide.
