What about the $399.99 Inspiron 660s i3-DualCore-3.4GHz-3MB cache, 4GB RAM,
1TB 7200rpm, 2X USB 3.0?
Or the $499.99 Inspiron 660s i5-QuadCore-3.3GHz-8MB cache, 8GB RAM, 1TB
7200 rpm, 2X USB 3.0?
If we trust 7200rpm and Dell for reliability?? If so both appear to offer
free shipping if ordered by Dec 20 11am EST.
