and it's powered by MS Windows XP. Incredible! And you wonder why Apple is in a hole with their (buy it sucker) pricing. $299 delivered, just hard to believe...

slower than a constipated elephant ..sempron is celeron and worse , an atom 1.6 will blow it away , that's why they are giving it away . Well built comp but so last century cpu mem wise

Got an email from them today. My daughter's 15" Inspiron shipped today, a week early. Her graduation gift, like her older brother. "Lipstick Red" :o

A couple days later, they sent me an "additonal 15% off" coupon, if I buy another one, anything at all, by the end of May......
Honeeeeeeeee ... ???????:rolleyes:

When I was looking at laptops for Christmas some of the little netbooks @ $300 were pretty nice, but I knew my daughter would want to watch movies and maybe burn discs so I went w/ the Vostra. I'm guessing discs will go the way of the floppy soon but for now they are still in wide use. I've started using an SD card to transport plans to the printer.
