Dell has a good deal again (they did two weeks ago) on the E1405, which I think is the best size Dell notebook (14.1" display, 5.5lbs.). It is $679 after a $100 instant discount and 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). Dell also have this E1405 for $659 but it has the older single core Intel processor, which I don't recommend. Shipping is free. Also, you can add $220 worth of upgrades, use our $200 off $999 coupon code and only pay $799 (or $120 more).
