  1. Dell is running a Small Business special right now. Vostro 1000 with AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK-53 (1.7GHz/512KB), 1 gig ram, 120 gig HD, and DVD burner for $399 with free shipping.

  2. Your right about everything except for the “after rebates part”. They never said 449 after rebates, they said 449 during small business savings. So it will be a subtotal 449 plus tax for a while. No rebates.
