Dell takes $235 off the price of this Inspiron 17.3" Laptop, dropping it to $548.09 with free shipping. This is a good price given the size and power of this laptop. The screen is huge for a notebook, so with Intel's 2.4GHz dual core i3 processor and HD graphics card along with 3GB of RAM, this is a great entertainment machine (both for games and videos). It also features an embedded webcam and 320GB hard drive. Sales tax is charged in most states.
