Use special desktop coupon deals to get a Dell computer for cheap! Enter Dell coupons code 8MDS7L8X707TLM for an instant discount of 20% off Inspiron 546 desktop computers priced at $699 or more.
Since the Dell Inspiron 546 desktop starts at just $269, it is a really cheap computer system. But cheap in price does not mean cheap in quality, as evidenced by the very high 4.5/5.0 star customer rating this system has earned up to this point.
At $269, you need to add at least $430 to this configuration to meet the $699 minimum price. At $699, the 20% off savings would be $139.80 and the resulting price would be $559.20.
With the $430 in upgrades, you can add a new monitor, put in software like the Microsoft Office Suite, or upgrade some of the hardware components like the cpu, memory, hard drive or graphics card.
Since you end up with 20% off the upgrade prices (after the coupon discount), the upgrades are an even better value than they may first seem. Plus if you spend more you save more, so you can go beyond the $699 without penalty.
If you need productivity software, consider adding Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 for $99. This package contains software that are very useful for students and just to have at home because it includes MS Word (wordprocessor), Excel (spreadsheet), and Powerpoint (presentations).
If you need a new computer monitor, consider the 20" Dell S2009W HD Widescreen Monitor for $180. If you like an even bigger, even higher resolution screen, buy the 23" Dell S2309W Full HD Widescreen Monitor for $250. For a screen with a built-in webcam/mic purchase the 21.5" Dell SX2210 Full HD Widescreen with 2.0 Megapixel Webcam and Dual Microphone for $280.
The system comes with an 2.3GHz AMD Sempron LE-1300. It would probably be a good idea to upgrade the processor to a dual-core 2.5GHz AMD Athlon X2 7550 for $50 or a triple-core 2.3GHz AMD Phenom X3 8650 for $100.
For $40 you can upgrade from 2GB of memory to 3GB (upgrading to 4GB costs $75). Going from a 320GB hard drive to 500GB costs just $40. Upgrading the graphics to a ATI Radeon HD 4350 costs $60.
