Which Dellk PC? Where is the Dell Refurb Store?

Hi. I just logged onto the Dell website to buy a PC for a friend and I'm a
little overwhelmed. I looking for a PC w/ XP Pro, that'll be used primarily
for Word processing, email, email, web browsing and capable of running
VISTA Home premium sometime in the future. Rock bottom price is not the top
priority. All suggestions are welcome.
What is the link to the CDell refurb sale store?

Thanks,

Tom

Buying a new Dell with XP might be a problem. Personally, I find Vista
OK. Not great, but OK.

I think you'd like something from the OptiPlex line. They are solid
business-class machines and priced right. Getting XP (just checked) is not a
problem.

If I were buying a computer now, I'd seriously consider the OptiPlex 740.
(But I'm partial to AMD anyway. If you're not, the 330 or 755 are worth a
look.)

Today (June 18) is the last day for XP Home, according to something I read last
night.

Meaning in my case I order no computers starting today.

i hear lots of people here speak highly of the dell outlet but i think it is
crap. i never have found a value there and i always see that you have to
compromise and accept the configuration they have rather than what you
actually want. plus it was recently pointed out that all the lcds at the
outlook come with only a 90 day warranty. if you follow the like i provided
above and select the optiplex 745 system that starts out at $679, add a
250gb hard disk , 2gb ram, 256mb video, dvdrw, 22" lcd it comes to $918 and
that includes a 3 year warranty on the machine and the warranty. compare
that $918 to your $729 outlet store example that does not have a monitor and
you know which is the better value. and with the 'new' machine you can
upgrade to any processor you like.

Let's wait and see how this little drama unfolds.

It's highly variable whether there's something there worthwhile.

You have to make it a regular practice to check. Sometimes months go
by with no deal worth looking at. Then suddenly there's good deals
for a while. Just check in once in a while.

At this instant the prices are not good.
