Dell Laptops Now Available in Best Buy Stores

by Reads (14,919)

Earlier in the month Dell and Best Buy announced Inspiron and XPS laptops would be available for sale in Best Buy retail stores nationwide in the U.S.  They missed the holiday sale season, but the Dell machines are now on the shelves.

The XPS M1330 with white alpine lid is available at BestBuy.com at the moment and is priced at $1,249.99 with the following configuration:

  • Intel T5450 1.66GHz processor
  • Intel X3100 graphics
  • 13.3" WXGA screen with 2.0MP web camera
  • 2GB RAM
  • Dell 1390 wireless
  • DVD±RW/CD-RW optical drive
  • 160GB 5400RPM hard drive
  • 6-cell battery

When you configure the same specs on Dell.com right now this laptop costs $1,279, so the BestBuy deal is actually slightly better.  The problem is of course you can’t custom configure the XPS M1330 at Best Buy like you can via Dell.com.

Also available on BestBuy.com is the Inspiron 1420 for $999 with the following configuration:

  • Intel T5450 1.66GHz processor
  • Intel X3100 graphics
  • 14.1" WXGA screen with 2.0MP web camera
  • 2GB RAM
  • Dell 1390 wireless
  • DVD±RW/CD-RW optical drive
  • 250GB 5400RPM hard drive
  • 6-cell battery

The same configuration on Dell.com costs $1,194 right now, so again the Best Buy deal is cheaper.  However, if you have Dell online coupon codes or know how to configure a machine cheaper online, such as getting the minimum amount of memory and upgrading RAM yourself, then you can still get the better deal online.

All the same, many people will be interested in testing out these Dell machines in a store and some people that prefer to buy from somewhere they can walk into will also prefer this purchase method.
