If you are enamored with that new-computer smell, then
you may want to look at buying a new (or used) Dell off of Ebay.  There are
numerous vendors who have a kind of value added reseller relationship with
Dell and sell new units with a Dell warranty at slightly reduced
prices.  Your biggest
savings may come in avoiding sales tax and perhaps reduced shipping cost.

Good luck,  Howard
