Dell, for the first time, has an E1405 Notebook with an Intel dual-core processor for $629. The E1405 is my favorite size Dell notebook (14.1" display, 5.5lbs.). It has a 1.6ghz Intel Core Duo processor, 512mb memory, 60gb SATA hard drive, CD-burning DVD-reading drive, wireless networking and Microsoft Works (which doesn't include Word). We have a 20% off $999 coupon code for notebook but this system is excluded. If you want to upgrade you'll need to start with this E1405 for $669. Shipping is free.
