Dell always has coupons and rebates, but the best way to save money on a Dell is:
1. Check and see what you want to buy on the Business website.
2. Call Sales and purchase it over the phone while looking at your order online.
Why you ask? Let me show you by sharing how much I saved yesterday when I purchased this laptop through the business section.

If you call in to Dell, the sales people can give you many discounts not found on the site. This is a nice laptop. Specs are found here: http://www.dell.com/us/en/bsd/produc..._notebooks.htm Estimated arrival: May 12th
Hope this helps. I thought this would be appropriate in the "Got Deals" section since it will save you money. Good Luck.
