Dell Vostro 1500 laptop purchased

I’ve been looking for reviews on the Dell Vostro 1500, and I finally found a few. It seems as though all around the board, it’s a decent system that is fairly bulky, has average battery life, and has the potential for great specs.

I’ve been saving for awhile, so, I committed to buying it today. I found the deal I needed on SlickDeals. It wasn’t any $750 off $1500, but it made the price good enough to take.

I bought the system at its base, with an upgraded LCD, graphics card, and warranty. Specs:

  • *Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5470 (1.6GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB)
  • Genuine Windows® XP Home
  • 15.4 in Wide Screen SXGA+LCD Display w/TrueLife™
  • *1GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz, 2 DIMM
  • 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ 8600M GT
  • 120G 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
  • Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem
  • 8X CD/DVD Burner w/ double-layer DVD+R write capability
  • High Definition Audio 2.0
  • Dell Wireless 1390 802.11g Wi-Fi Mini Card
  • 56 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery
  • Get $70 Dell Dollars w/3Yr Ltd Warranty and Next Business Day On-Site Svc

For $968.00 with free shipping. The items prepended with * are those which I plan to upgrade as time and money allows.

Now to sell my Dell Inspiron 700m. Most likely on eBay. It’s school season, eBay prices on laptops are inflated at least $100 :).

    I’ll buy your old laptop. Sure! I’ll give you ten dollars, a pack of gum (minus one stick), AND a five dollar Starbucks Gift Card.

    At some point, not right away. I don’t exactly have a copy yet, per se.
