Last time I saw these go for was around $550+ tax so $495+tax sounded just right to burn my gift card.

Just spoke with Rep.
Deal is dead.
He was informed that no more Inventory available or coming @ that price.

Dell clearly has the inventory, but not at the above price. Frown

Also I should point out - even though it says "offer ends Aug 27", the $50 for every $300 gift card promotion is still valid as of right now. Might want to hurry if you want to get in on that... https://dell.cashstar.com/

Great deal. If I hadn't just bought a laptop with similar specs and everything to dock it I'd be all over this.

Ah this is tempting. With the promo gift card and after tax, this comes to about $475 for me...and I recently had someone offer $500 for my XPS8300 on craigslist.

So, I'd make $25 and get the following switches (not ALL of them are upgrades)

i7-2600 2nd gen --> i7-3770 3rd gen
Windows 7 --> Windows 8
1TB --> 2TB hard drive
8GB RAM --> 12GB RAM
Radeon 5670 --> GeForce GT 640
Bluray Drive --> DVD +/- RW Drive

Thoughts?
