The current Dell Dimension 8200 (their flagship laptop) deal is that of giving you free upgrades. The 8200 is no lightweight in that it is 7.64 lbs and 1.7 inches thick. However, this unit was not meant to be a superthin notebook. It is the big, full-sized, fully featured laptop with all the trimmings. I actually prefer those because I don't like carrying external devices. What makes this a good deal is that Dell is offering these upgrades with it:
- Free upgrade to 15 inch UXGA screen - This means 1600x1200 resolution, guys. That is amazing for just a 15 inch screen
- Free upgrade to 40 GB Ultra-ATA hard drive - This is a very decently large hard drive for a notebook PCFree upgrade to 8X CDRW-DVD Combination Drive - These things usually cost a fortune. Also, with this drive, there is no need for any externals
As you can see, this is a hefty notebook with everything you will ever need. Here's how to get it.

When you check out, your price should be $1,579.00
before S/H. There shouldn't be tax for most states. If your total is more than that, then Dell might have snuck in an extra accessorie, so go back and double check everything.
