Dell offers first sub-$1000 PC

Dell on Wednesday announced its first sub-$1000 PC, available immediately.

The company is selling the Dell Dimension 2350 for $999. The box comes with a 2.0GHz Intel Celeron processor, 128MB of DDR-SDRAM, a 30GB hard drive, 48x Max CD-ROM, 17in CRT monitor as well as Windows XP Home Edition, WordPerfect Productivity Pack and Norton Anti-Virus 2002. A standard delivery fee of $99 applies.

According to Dell Australia spokesperson Nicole Gemmell, the offer is for a limited time and consumers must place an order for the product by 2 May 2003.

She said the company could offer such a low price due largely to the reduction in component costs, coupled with the fact the Dimension 2350 was "edging towards the end of its product life".

Dell is also offering a promotion on the Dimension 4550. That PC is selling for $1999 and comes with 2.4GHz Intel Pentium4 processor, 256MB DDR-SDRAM, 30GB hard drive, SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 sound card, 48x Max CD-RW, 56Kbps modem, and 17in flat panel monitor, together with Windows XP Home Edition and WordPerfect. This offer is also valid until 2 May.

A one-year warranty applies to both machines. Gemmell said customers can expect a seven to 10 day wait for delivery of the products following the placement of an order.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
