Instant savings of 25% off this Dell Studio XPS 13 Laptop when you enter the CZWL5NSSTJ7NB3 Dell coupon code into the shopping cart and configure the system to at least $1599. Plus the cart is showing free shipping as well!
If you configure your system right at this $1599 minimum price before the discount number, it would have you about $400 and your resulting price would be right around $1200.
The starting price of this system is $1198, so you need to add at least $401 in upgrades. However, the base starting system has many nice features included already, as listed below.
As you may notice above, the system comes with a built-in 2 mega-pixel camera. In addition, it has facial recognition security software, which allows you to do a simple scan of your face with this built-in WebCam to login to your computer. This is really cool, and an awesome thing to show off to your friends.
As noted earlier, you need to add $401 in upgrades to this system to qualify for the 25% off Dell coupon code. When you are adding upgrades, note that the 25% off will also apply to them, making them 25% cheaper than the listed price when you add them.
There are a few upgrades that are very cheap, so they would be a useful choice for just about everyone.
The last in the above list is more expensive that the other 3 upgrades, but for most people getting a powerful graphics accelerator with dedicated video memory would be an important component. It will help run Vista's Aero features better, and it will help significantly for 3D PC games, high definition video and complicated multimedia streaming.
Another more expensive upgrade to continue is to go with the 128GB or 256GB Solid State Drive (SSD). These drives are very resistant to shock, so even if you treat your Studio XPS 13 laptop very rough, you are unlikely to lose stored data. Additionally, SSD drives are very fast. Many people report switching to SSDs as being the best performance improvement to a computer, with fast boot times and everything just running much smoother and zippier.
Another idea is to add a 9-Cell Battery as a secondary battery. The primary battery is just 6-cell, so this secondary one will offer longer battery life. Plus you will have two batteries, so you can switch between them. It is also very reasonably priced. However, note that this will not contribute towards the minimum because it is shipped separately from the Home Electronics and Accessories.
