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).

It's been well over a month and I STILL don't have the Dell Advantage gift card.

Looks like I'll be calling them Monday. I do have proof that I signed up before purchasing this computer, so there should be no arguments on their end. We shall see.

Help!

I can't get streaming videos to play in Metro(Modern), from any site Netflix, You tube, CNN, etc?Confused

They all play fine in the old "Desktop" mode.

I've tried everything over the last 3 days:
(more hours wasted than I care to note)

Drivers updated, un-installed, reinstalled.

Rollbacks

Reinstall Win8

Searched the Web for answers..............

Anyone else have this problem.

Note: I have updated Win8 to Win8 Pro (it should not be the problem, correct?)

TIA for anyone & anything that will help.

Check your Junk Mail! I called them and they told me to look in there, and there it was. I didn't even think of looking in there.

This is probably a silly question but can anyone confirm what the power cord for the tower looks like?

We are not sure if it matters but forgot which goes to our monitor and which to the computer. One is round and smooth and the other is flat and looks a little like three wires combined for the one cable. We think it is the flat one that looks a little like three wires combined but figured it couldn't hurt to asks to make sure.

I'm not sure if this will allow me to link to the Dell images but it wold look like one of these two.

Any discounted stuff at DELL that can be purchased utilizing the loyalty gift $s?

Looking at portable drives but all are at MSRP.

Is the Intel Rapid Storage Technology supposed to use so much memory? It starts off using very little but I've seen it use over 1GB for no apparent reason. I'm not even sure what it does.

Are any of the Dell installed utilities worth keeping? They seem like they all duplicate Windows programs and settings.

I was thinking of the 1TB Dell rebranded Seagate drive for $79.99. Other than that prices of things are lousy. The Bose stuff is hard to find discounted anywhere so that's an option.

Used some on XBOX points on Thursday. Got 2 cards for $77.66 with EPP discount. Still have over $400 in multiple cards to burn.

I ended up buying some Dell branded memory for my Macbook Pro. Fortunately it worked. Glad to have gotten rid of the bonus GC.
