Technical information: Dell Inspiron 660 Owner's Manual [dell.com]

PRICE _ $449.99
Link to Dell 660 Deal [dell.com]

And you can save a bit more by purchasing Dell eGift cards.
Purchase Amount → Bonus Dell GC (combinable by phone or chat, not on line)
$300 → $50.00
$400 → $75.00
$500 → $90.00

Sign up for Dell's Advantage Loyalty Program, or use your existing Advantage membership, for an additional 10% off (rebated later in the form of Dell GC).

So, assuming that you purchase the Dell 660 with no options and no sales tax, you could buy a new i5 Dell 660 for $400 with $70 left over in gift certificates. I.e., the net cost of this deal is approximately $330.

Even lower with student discounts, military discounts, and other negotiated discounts. Lower still with rebates from cashback sites and from your credit card company.

One person reported negotiating a price over the chat line of $392, with tax he paid $415. With cashback rebates on the GC purchase (FW, e%%tes, Mr. Re%%tes), Dell $75 bonus GC, Dell Advantage 10% promo, and credit card reward points; the net cost of his deal might have been under $300. Yes, under $300!

---------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: Note: The original price was $499.99, reduced to $449.99 (as noted by several people below).

You don't use the dell advantage program when buying the gift cards, only during purchasing the computer.

ok i see a dollar has been taken off. But when i clicked on "view detail", i get,

"Dell Advantage $1 off discount. Your Advantage benefits have been applied including a 5% Dell Promo eGift card (sent in 10 – 20 days, excludes taxes and shipping) card and free second business day shipping

Expires Wednesday, January 01, 2014"

It is 5% instead of 10%?

Thanks OP!

I asked for a student discount and they knocked a little off the system to bring it to $440.99.

$440.99 - $75 (free gift card with $400 dell gc purchase) - $41 (10% advantage gift card) = $324.99

Seems like a great deal to me. 2'nd day shipping is nice too.

I got a discount too without any prompting. I had to speak with the online chat rep to get the $400 & $75 Dell GC to apply. The chat rep quoted a price of $441.99. I would let them know that "your friend" got a quote of $440 or so and that you want the same thing.

You need to apply the gift card during payment or checkout process .. There is special option to enter dell gift card.

yes they plug in to the SATA ports like any other hard drive. what you'll need is a 2.5" to 3.5" converter to fit it in a regular hard drive slot. most SSDs come with one of those, though
