[Dell] Dell: $50-$200 off Vostros & Latitudes (i7-870 PC $689, 15" Core i3 Laptop $479...)

There's a handy new promotion from Dell.ca Small Business. When you purchase a Vostro system (laptop or desktop), or Latitude or Precision laptops, you can save anywhere from $50-$200.
  • Spend up to $699 on any Vostro notebook and get $50 off with coupon code - WXF7DQ6G8SDJ26
  • Spend over $700 or more on any Vostro notebook and get $100 off with coupon code - 6PTV9SVV1X?PF3
  • Spend up to $699 on any Vostro desktop and get $50 off with coupon code - WXF7DQ6G8SDJ26
  • Spend over $700 or more on any Vostro desktop and get $100 off with coupon code - 6PTV9SVV1X?PF3
  • Spend up to $1000 on any Latitude notebook and get $100 off with coupon code - PTLR7BB717JT2X
  • Spend up to $2000 on any Latitude notebook and get $150 off with coupon code - PDNZVN5GPBR6SN
  • Spend over $2000 on any Latitude or Precision notebook and get $200 off with coupon code - 5P515FHQ?DG0FL
The coupons create some good values, like the following:
The new V130 (the successor to the Vostro V13) is priced well with this coupon offer. It keeps the same design as the V13 but adds things like HDMI connectivity and runs on the latest generation Intel processors.

Bonus! If you have a PayPal account, you can now get $50 cash back on a Dell.ca purchase of $599 or more if you pay with PayPal. You can get a maximum of $50 back per Paypal Account and the offer is good through December 15 only. Click here for more details.

Shipping is free for all Vostro systems.

Hot price on the V130. I bought a V13 for my dad last year and I'm a big fan of the V13/V130 design. With HDMI it's that much better the the previous gen V13. It's also a dual-core processor vs. the single core on the low end of the previous version. For $399 it's pretty hot...

How do you get the Vostro 3500 for $489.00? Clicking on the link shows $529? Which coupon works for this?

The first one of course: "Spend up to $699 on any Vostro notebook" which makes the total not $489, but $479 (I just checked to make sure it works).

Btw, do know that the 3500 has a noisy fan, many buyers complain about it in the reviews on the Dell site and this might also be an interesting thread to read:

How's the Celeron ULV U3400 on the V130? I know it's a low-power CPU but how does it measure againt let's say a Atom N455 or the Core i3 380UM that the other V130 has?

New Vostro V130 Laptop w/Dual-core Celeron U3400 ULV, 2GB RAM, 13.3" WLED, 250GB HD, Intel graphics, Wireless N/Bluetooth, 6-cell battery, Ubuntu Linux 10.04 - $399.00

1) Does this have HDMI?
2) Is this a good price? lol I'd rather go for something powerful then just the netbooks
3) Can I pick Windows 7 instead of Linux? Should I do it through Dell or buy it off-shelf?
4) Also is V13 and V130 the same thing?

Also, I don't see where I can update/customize the above laptop?

Is the $80 upgrade to GT220 worth it from the G310? I am looking to play SC2.

Also, is the 4GB -> 8GB for $60 and i5 -> $i7 $90 worthy upgrades?

1) Yes
2) If the relative comparison is a netbook in this price range, then sure?
3) You can do either/or. Windows 7 option starts at the $519 ($569 - $50 coupon) customisable option though. And all you're really getting is Windows + 70gb more HD space. So you can decide for yourself if it's really worth the extra $119+tax.
4) V130 is the newer model of the V13.

Thanks for the reply Phil. I don't understand why Windows 7 is so much more expensive. Question though, If I got for the $399.99, I can install Windows 7 myself? What I mean basically is formatting the hardrive to install clean Windows 7 or is that going to mess up other system settings/hardware? I heard somewhere that if linux is running, windows does not recognize partitioned drive. So not sure if this is possible?

Darn it, that's the only deal that is any good. Forget about 200 bucks off 2000 dollar one! And this fan noise thing is big with me, so I'll just have to wait for other deals.
