Dell invades Staples stores next week (starting Nov 11)

Dell invades Staples stores next week as they unleash their "mail-order" laptops in-store :) The front page of the upcoming week's Staples circular is full of Dell products! This can makes us wonder, is Black Friday coming early this year at Staples? :)

Of laptop interest, the Dell Inspiron 1521 is featured front page for $780. This ...inspirational laptop features an AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual Core TL-58 Processor, a 15.4" widescreen, 2GB memory, 160GB hard drive, SuperMulti format dvd burner, built-in Webcam, and of course the obligatory Vista Home Premium.

And when you are working at the office or at home, what better way to match the laptop with a 22" widescreen Dell LCD computer monitor for the very sexy price of $270. Not a typo, two hundred and seventy dollars :) It has a 1680 by 1050 resolution, 800:1 contrast ratio and 5ms response time. You can also get a 19" Dell LCD monitor for $180.

Spoiling the Dell party however is Acer with two laptops, one of which is a mere $500. We are talking about the Acer Aspire AS4520 for $500 and no rebates. If you want you can get a free printer after mail-in rebates. What do you get for five hundred dollars? Not a bad deal, let me tell you! It has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 DC TK-53, 1gb memory, 120gb hard disk, 14.1" widescreen display, super multi format dvd burner, built-in webcam and memory card reader, and Vista Premium. Bargain Alert!

The second one is the Acer Aspire AS7720 for $750. This is ideal for people who like 17" widescreen displays because it has one :) Just like the one above, you can get a free printer after mail-in rebate. The laptop itself has an Intel® Centrino Duo Core 2 Duo T5250 processor, 2GB memory, 160GB hard disk drive, dvd burner, a/b/g wireless, built-in webcam, and everybody's favorite Aero-powered Vista Premium.

On the accessories front, the 160gb Western Digital Passport portable drive is $100 without rebates!
