IF you just go through dell.com you couldn't get that deal because they don't let you customize to lower processer and others things but if you call and tell them exactly what you want like Inspiron 1501 Mobile AMD Sempron™ 3500+ (1.8GHz/512KB) Genuine Windows® XP Home 15.4 inch Wide Screen XGA Display 512MB DDR2 SDRAM 533MHZ, 1 DIMM 24X CD Burner/DVD Combo Drive 60GB Hard Drive Dell Wireless 1390 802.11g Mini Card (54Mbps) No productivity suite- Includes Microsoft Works 8. DOES NOT INCLUDE MS WORD 1Yr Ltd Warranty and Mail-In Service they should give you a lower price but through the military you can get free shipping and no tax, but just call and tell them you are looking for that one and maybe a cheaper one.

Im still confused. using the link on the first post and adding just the TL50 processor the price should be 635 right? which is discounted 159 dollars from 794 This is the correct price? If I call dell, what should I tell them?

Correct, I just tried it again and it works.

$585 + $50 upgrade = $635

I just made this purchase. I was able to get a free ink jet by asking. I'm not sure on the model, but hey, it was free.

So should I call back and ask for a free printer since I ordered one of these printers over the weekend? Is this going to further delay my "in production order"? Thanks

i just called customer service, was on phone for abour 20 minutes. I said that 'i was told this came with a free printer, can you help?" She kinda balked at the request at first, and was reluctant to just do it for no reason. I said that a friend of mine ordered the same thing, and was originally told that this came with the free printer, but he had to call back to have it added on, and I'm doing the same transaction. She said ok, put e on hold, came back, and said she's shipping the free printer! I really don't need it per se, but it will make a great xmas gift. ;)

Dell wouldn't give me a free printer, but my order did ship today! It will hopefully arrive tomorrow according to UPS' estimate.

Same here for me Santa. My friend was looking at the laptop online. Arent we suppose to be able to hook this up to our tvs since it media center edition? According to him he couldnt see any S-Video on it. Anyone else get one yet that can clarify?

It seems as though your friend is correct :(. From looking at a 3D rotational view of the notebook on Dell's website, there are no S-Video ports, though the graphics chipset supports it. These aren't meant to be media center notebooks, though it does seem Dell is trying to tease people into thinking they are. I think Dell opted to remove s-video from this model as well as get rid of the media center buttons on the front to make people buy the next model up.

That's crazy, my friend said Dell is doing their best to get anyone and everyone to buy all that they have due to their recent failures in the customer service market. I also noticed my arrival date got changed to the 30th. Is there anyway then to hook this up so that I can take advantage of the media addition?

Ok, I got in on this one for my daughter too. Now I have a question. What would be the best low cost router for this system? Current system specs: Road Runner Cable Internet Phone Service from AT&T Computer is running Windows XP (system ~1.5 years old) Looking for any input. New to the 'wireless' end of the internet.:o thanks!

I'm still trying to figure out what laptop to get my highschool/collegebound daughter for Christmas. Is the Dell E1405 better than the Dell 1501?. I know Roassman suggested certain upgrades but I can't retrieve the post. Sorry, I'm new at this Thanks

The extra space is being used for the recovery partition. Instead of sending out OS cds for reinstall, they put it all on the drive.

I got mine yesterday and am pleased with it so far. The truelife display is just amazing! There is no comparison to it versus a regular LCD. The only complaint I have so far is the right mouse button tends to squeak occasionally.

Dell 1501 owners, which WiFi do you have? Dell 1390 or Intel 3945?

I got a recovery CD. So I imagine if I format it I should gain some space back. Sleepy, I couldn't agree with you more on the display. It's really nice. I like the battery power also.

I never did get mine. I contacted Dell and they told me that it is lost. They said that I would have to reorder. I guess I will have to make a phone call and see what I can get done.

I've been watching this same computer for weeks on the price. In the past 2 weeks it had gone up $50 each week. Today I tried to configue a system and it was $750. (Way too much to pay for a 9 year old). I started searching again and Walmart has an ACER brand computer that is very similar to this 1501 for $528 (online only). However, I'm partial to the Dell b/c we have 1 and like it. Anyway,,,, try this... instead of going to Dell then Home Home Office... go to small business... they have the SAME computer for $534. -- it is$649 on the Dell home site. With tax and FREE SHIPPING,,, I only spent $566 and was getting ready to dump $700 on the same computer just hours ago.

I am still fighting with Dell right now about the 1st system I had ordered for $635 + tax with dual core which was lost and this offer for $640 without a DVD burner. I think they are about to let me have the 1st system again.
