Deal of the week: Dell bargains and an 8800 GT


— 3:16 PM on January 18, 2008

We have a handful of tantalizing deals for you this week. First, Dell is running a "10 days of deals" promotion, which is currently on its third day and includes discounts on two notebooks, one hard drive, and one TV.

Starting with the notebooks, Dell is offering an Inspiron 1720 for $799 (down $265 from the regular price) and an XPS M1530 for $1,199 (down a whopping $549). The $799 Inspiron has a 17" 1440 x 900 display, a 1.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T5450 processor, 2GB of memory, and a 120GB hard drive. As for the XPS, it features a speedier 2GHz Core 2 Duo T7250, a 15.4" 1280 x 800 display, Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics, 3GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive.

The storage and TV deals are slightly less interesting, but they're still worth a mention. Dell is selling an external 320GB Western Digital My Book hard drive for $99.99 after a $50 instant rebate, and the PC vendor also has a Sharp Aquos 52" 1080p LCD TV up for sale at $2,499, down from $2,999.

Finally, we've noticed that ZipZoomFly is selling an eVGA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB for $249.99—a tantalizing price considering other models often retail for $270 or more. This particular offering is clocked at the default 600MHz core and 900MHz memory speeds, but it's cheap, in stock, and covered by a lifetime warranty.
