Just log on to your amex account. Click on the tab that says my offers. There is a list of offers. The one for deal says $150 statement credit with a $599 purchase (that includes tax and shipping). So As long as you spend $600 on your amex on any dell deal you get $150 statement credit. It takes literally minutes after the order to get an email from amex saying that it has been applied. There was also some tweeter deal but in the words of Vince Vaughn I don't twat! so I wouldn't know...
Are XPS laptops more well-built than their business lines (Vostro, Latitude)?
Generally, no; but the new line this year seems phenomenal(atleast for the 13)
Just an example of how relatively well engineered the XPS 13[parts-people.com] is. I really like how they didnt use any glue to hold together components to the body. On cheaper-mediocre laptops, this is quite common practice(specially around the keyboard). No cheap plastic tabs to pry apart, no strange finger contortions required to attach the keyboard and trackpad ribbon to the motherboard; all in all, this means underqualified service techs will have a very difficult time screwing up a repair
PS: This is the first time I'm actually purchasing a consumer-level Dell. I've always used Latitudes due to their better engineering.
Outlet scratch and dent. Googling led me to believe my chances are pretty good for getting a unit in near new condition. Has not shipped so no idea on the GPU. Don't expect it to be taxed by anything I do.
Beware anybody who is upgrading to Windows 8 on XPS 13. Windows 8 does not support the trackpad drivers. I can see why people are having problems with it now. I went to install and it asked my to remove Cypress Trackpad. Looks like it caused all kinds of problems. I'll just have to stick with 7 until this is resolved.
