[TheInquirer] How to Shave £27 off your Dell laptop?

HOW DO you shave £27 off the cost of a laptop from Dell? Answer – buy from an online site instead of directly from Dell. In this case the INQ bought from Pcbuyit

All this INQ hack wanted was an entry-level laptop. It seemed that the Dell Vostro 1000 notebook PC was something of a bargain. After all, it is advertised on the Dell business site for a mere £179.

That figure is minus taxes, of course, which here in Blighty means VAT. However, Dell requires a whopping £51 to deliver said laptop. When VAT is added the total comes to a crazy £270.32. That's nearly an extra £100.

However, searching around the web revealed that the Pcbuyit site had the Vostro 1000 in stock for a mere £20 extra - £199. When you add VAT and a shipping charge of £8, the total cost came to £243.23. Crazy, isn't it?

Buying Dell is the crazy part ;-)

We have a large contract with them so I must hush now.

Nice find though Thunderer.
