Just through tonight (2/13), Dell Small Business has a well-equipped model of the Vostro 1000 Notebook priced at only $449. It has a 15.4" display, 1.8GHz AMD Athlon dual-core processor, 120GB hard drive, 1GB memory, 8x DVD / CD burner, internal wireless networking, and comes loaded with your choice of Windows XP or Vista Home Basic (I still recommend XP, Vista has yet to be perfected). Most of the components are upgradable, just scroll across the components at the center of the landing page. Plus, shipping is free. Sales tax is charged in most states.
