Dell is taking $500 off Vostro 1700 Notebooks priced at $1299 or higher with this coupon (expiring 4/2). This laptop starts at $729, so you could add several upgrades and pay only $799. My recommendation is a 2.0GHz Intel dual-core processor ($150), 3GB memory ($200), a 250GB hard drive ($150), 8x CD / DVD burner ($30), and a 2MP webcam ($40). You can configure it however you want, just scroll across the component icons at the center of the landing page. Shipping is free and tax is applied in most states.
