Buy one Dell XPS laptop or desktop, get another one for 50% off

Usually you find these type of deals at the grocery store for grocery items, but this is perhaps yet another indicator of the commoditization (is that a real word even?) of computers and technology.

Dell Home is offering this great special until July 10, so be sure to bookmark this post and revisit it if you are considering a purchase!

The special you ask? Buy one select XPS™ M1530 laptop and/or one select XPS™ 420 desktop & get the second select XPS of equal or lesser value for 50% off.. Now you don't need an excuse to buy two computers, the deal itself is the enabler :)

As you can tell from the XPS model name, these are serious computers, they are not entry-level models. They are for people who want power and flexibility and versatility!

The Dell XPS M1530 laptop starts at $1300 and its starting configuration includes an Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 processor, which clocks at 2.0GHz/667Mhz FSB/2MB cache). The screen is a 15.4" widescreen with a resolution of 1440x90 fueled by the 128MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8400M GS card. It has 4gb (yes, four gigabytes) of DDR2 SDRAM at 667HMz in 2 DIMMs. Also, a 320gb hard disk, slot loading dvd burner, 2-megapixel webcam, wireless, 6-cell battery, Vista SP1, and comes dressed for success in tuxedo black.

The desktop is the Dell XPS 420 and it starts at $1100. The starting configuration includes an Intel Core2 Q6600 Quad-Core (8MB L2 cache,2.4GHz,1066FSB) prcoessor, 4gb dual channel DDR2 memory, 500gb (7200rpm) hard disk, dvd burner, ATI Radeon HD3650 256MB graphics, Vista Premium and all the other goodies you'd expect from a four-figure Dell desktop computer. Do note that a monitor is not included with this bundle, but you can obviously add it for additional cost.

As with most things Dell, you can customize these to your liking!
