Go to http://www.dell.com/content/topic...l=en&s=dhs

direct link to the deal at dell.com.....

http://configure.us.dell.com/dell...=1&vw=list

or copy n paste...

Code:
http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=us&cid=52259&dgc=MT&l=en&lid=1345275&oc=fndfza3&prod=fndfza3&s=dhs&fb=1&vw=list
listed as a fasttrack system, so that would include free express shipping (you have to select it during checkout, though, otherwise it defaults to ground) and no lead-time as they're already built and ready to go. order it today, you should have it tomorrow (provided it's not a dreaded dell screw-up-to-be-cancelled)... 15 month mcafee and office home & student (note oem license is ONE user, not three as in retail box license).

if this is a dell price mistake... this one they might actually ship... just to get rid of them. Big Grin

no free upgrade to win7.. according to http://win7.dell.com/ ...

The registration and order period for the Dell Windows® 7 Option upgrade program has ended.

$46 will get you a dell-branded win7 home premium 64bit upgrade kit (i.e. what was the 'free' upgrade) off fleabay

vista-schmista, i'd still use it... if i had $350 to spend right now... better than the vista laptop clearance deals i've seen locally in stores.

Well, it uses your Dell stored account info. Looks like a price mistake for their special mobile site. N41

Edit: Got order confirmation from Dell for $329 plus tax. Link back to their order confirmation site shows same. Snooze=lose.

they aren't a "store", they're a service provider that dell must be using to deliver their 'mobile web'
