Dell :: Worth It To Call And Try To Haggle On A Coupon'd 1555
Jul 8, 2009
I've got a 1555 spec'd out with a 25% discount coupon code applied($1154 to $865).
I was wondering if anyone thought it was worthwhile to call Dell up and try to get them to offer me an even better deal. There's nothing else I really want....I mean, I guess they could up me from a P8600 to a P8700, but that's about it. So I wonder if I could get them down to an even $800.
Any thoughts or recommendations? I'm on a very limited budget, so every bit helps...
I'm looking at buying a studio xps 16 and there's a new coupon found here in nbr that gives u a $200 discount along with a $150 gift card. Since i'm a university student here in the us 'm entitled to the EPP program.
Thing is, my uni provided me with the epp code but i don't know how to combine it with the coupon. If any1 knows how i can combine them i'd be very gratefuL
I cant believe this really happened. I said in another post that this would happen knowing my luck and it DID. I was just on it an hour ago and the coupon was working now it said its been used up. Im devastated right now, i dont even think im going to be buying a Dell anymore!
I received a call from a guy who was clearly calling from India today about ComgpleteCare. It seemed that he already had all my info and apparently ordered CompleteCare before I even confirmed it.
My son had picked up the phone, was given a confirmation number, and my son then gave the phone to me. When I was given the phone, the guy said that he wanted to verify a few things. He asked me for my credit card number, which I stupidly gave to him. He then said that CompleteCare was ordered .....
Can't seem to find a latitude with the specs I want. Unfortunately, when I find it, the system is gone thats what I get for being slow. My question is if I call Dell, how is the pricing over the phone compare to online and would I be able to use a coupon over the phone?
Got my studio xps 16 yesterday, love it but have an issue. In call of duty 4 i can only seem to get a limited number of resolutions even if i change the aspect ratio from 4:3, 16:9 etc. For example i have no resolution in between 1280*1024 and 1920*1080. Need a 1600*1200 option. Changing the aspect ratio in l4d gave me more options but this fix doesnt work in cod 4.
So the technician successfully replaced my video card and everything was great and fine with the world. I tried it out on Call of Duty 4 and checked the temps which peaked at a MUCH lower level so I thought I was good to go and I was happy. The only problem I had was a small amount of choppyness in the game, but I just figured I had the settings too high and I had not overclocked it at all. No problem.... So now today I wanted to play good old Oblivion and I figured this would need some overclocking because well....its Oblivion. So I start up ATI Tool and overclock it to around 620 mhz core and 720 mhx memory...Not too much overclock considering some of you have got yours to like 650 or higher and 800 in the memory department... Well I was just about to start playing when after the game loads there is no character on the screen just grey lines... So I figure maybe I overclocked it to much? I turned it down about 10 to 20 mhz and I still had some artifacts? I pretty much turned overclocking so far down I would now consider it slightly pushing the card. So I try to play oblivion and it is really choppy. Before I got this new card I had some pretty bad heat problems and crashing because of it, but I could overclock it to a MUCH higher level than that of this non heat problematic card?
So my question to all of you highly intelligent and knowledgeable people of this forum is do I have a bum card or is something else the matter? Sorry for such a long post I just felt my story needed to be fully explained so I could receive the best support...
Has anyone "SUCCESSFULLY RECEIVED" HP cashback through Bing for purchases with HP coupon. I've seen in this forum people confirmed they received email from Bing for the HP cashback. I know it will take up to 60 days for releasing the cashback. Has anyone actually received the cashback for purchases with HP coupon.

I've searched the forum but could not find a definite answer.
My wife is using my old m1710 mainly for photoshop and i have noticed that it's very very hdd intensive. She complains that it would freeze sometimes when working with a lot of files or with large files.
I decided to upgrade the HDD to SSD, but after reading here and there i saw different opinions.
Some say i will not see any increase in performance because the bottleneck is the SATA support of m1710 mobo, some say still there will be increase in performance.
