    Default I can't believe I just did this...

    I got on Dell.com and did a live chat to ask about a 6 cell v. 9 cell battery and the guy talked m e in to buying a computer...

    I did save $300 though. It was $698.11 after tax (which in TN is almost 10% in my county...)

    It came with a 2 GHz/800mhz FSB/2MB cache
    Windows Vista Home Premium Ed
    15.4" display
    3GB Shared Dual Channel memory
    250 GB hard drive
    CD/DVD writer
    Intel next generation wireless card
    Webcam

    All the typical computer things like networking modem etc

    I bought this for my DH because his bday is in Feb, our anniversary is late Jan and Valentines day is right after his bday as well.

    How should I suprise him with this? Did I do the right thing? He's been wanting a laptop and he bought me so much for Christmas that I wanted to buy him something as well.

    For you technical people, are those pretty good stats for a computer?

    No, the 15" is fine, as he will throw it up on a docking station and use a monitor if he needs. He doesn't like the big monitors plus those systems cost at least $200 more....

    Is the memory and everything good for someone who uses it mainly for internet and music downloads?

    Just so you all know, if you ever get a dell, chat with someone online through their website first. I re-priced the exact same system and the price he gave me was $150 better than when I built it myself. Add that to the $150 the system was on sale for when I built it myself the savings was $300...

    Any ideas on how to suprise him with this? I am going to keep it at my office and probably suprise him on our anniversary (because it's sooner than his birthday - but not by much. It's a combined anniversary/birthday/valentines day present)

    I was thinking on our anniversary (a monday) work a half day. Wrap the present. I will take makeup to work and put it on there (I wear minimal makeup from day to day - no use wasting such pricey things when all you do is sit at a computer...) and then go home at lunch, place the box in front of the door then hide somewhere where I can still watch it and have his brother call him and tell him to open the door there's something outside.

    Hmm... you could set the computer up somewhere and when he comes home ask him to fetch something from that room.

    But your idea sounds good too. So he wouldn't know that you're home then?

    Hes laid off and always home and if I showed up he would know I wanna suprise him.

    I could put it in my trunk and ask him to get it out or something.

    I also bought ms office 2007!! For $50 through ultimatedeal.com

    Aw ND that's so awesome of you!!!

    I think it's a great laptop, and the monitor is the right size, you don't want anything too big for a laptop. The specs sound great, and I think he will be totally surprised!
