B110 Desktop

$419 - $70 auto discount - $35 (eBay) = $314. Free shipping.

E-value code: 07979 - db110hip

Stolen from FW.

FYI, I am considering canceling my previous order last week for this one. It's $78 cheaper and comes with a DVD burner. The other system had a P4 processor but a Celeron is fine for me. It is definetly fine for my mom.

Excellent deal. I only wish you could get Windows XP MCE with these.

I just ordered one, this is $#@! hot. My previous Dell order should arrive today, I'll tell FedEx that I am refusing shipment and "return to sender" :) This way there is $0 shipping and no restocking fee since I never signed for it. I have an extra $35 off $300 coupon (yes it works) to the first person with over 500 posts who PM's me.

Value isn't as good as the 17" one for $314. If you go with the 19", you will only get 256 MB RAM memory and no speakers ($90 worth of features). If you go customize the one with the 17" and upgrade it to a 19" monitor, it's only $80. So, you're paying $10 more. Be careful here.

I don't need the crappy speakers and if you have seen the 17" LCD (which I have) it's nothing to write home about.

I'll either use this as a PVR or sell it for profit.

Price > Performance

What about the 256 MB RAM? Will that make a big difference for someone who uses the computer for school, work, checking GD Website? No gaming or anything like that.

256mb is enough for those uses... more is always better though.

RAM is cheap. You can easily find an additional 512MB for cheap.

I just canceled my order from last week. This system was $329.70 shipped and I should get $50 back when it has been delivered.

So basically I am better off cancelling the previous order or refusing shipment and purchasing extra RAM later. Is it easy to install? I have done a few things with the computer but I don't want to do anything difficult.

If your PC has already shipped, when it arrives tell the courier you are REFUSING SHIPMENT and to RETURN TO SENDER. Otherwise you'll have to pay shipping back to Dell plus a restocking fee.

Re-order before this expires and don't worry RAM is easy to install. We can walk you through it.
