Cheap PC's available at Dell outlet

I snagged my mom an AMD x2 Processor (2 ghz x 2) , 250 gb hard drive, dvd burner, 1 gb ram, etc for $279

It doesnt get much cheaper than that...and the computer's processor is NOT that antiquated....

Just figured I'd share for anyone in the market for a cheap PC

Yeah but they catch fire and bite you without provocation.

I never did tell you how happy I was in helping you work up those dell scripts and get a deal, only to have you buy a frickin AMD based machine. Grrr.

There are a lot of laptops in there and more to come. A lot of people dumped their orders when the pre-santa rosa 6400 and latitudes went on sale. More to come.

I didnt see any screaming bargains vs the 'office supply/electronics store' deals of the week without applying the scripting s/w.

I've been itching to get a new dual processor laptop with a bigger screen, but my wife would probably smack me in the face with it. "But honeyyyyy...the other nerds get new ones every year and its been TWO since I got a new one!" isnt working anymore.

Biggest problem I'm having is finding something I like that doesnt have Vista sprayed all over it.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
