First, I am not trying to offend anyone, flame, etc. I have a hookup that will allow me to purchase anything by dell for 50% off. I know a lot of people here dislike dell, but at 50% off their prices, would people reconsider? I am on a budget, but would basically like a desktop replacement laptop. The maximum I could spend would be $700. I would need to run windows anyways because of certain applications. So although I'd really like to get a mac, I can't afford to buy one that meets my needs...core duo, dedicated graphics, boot camp. So if you guys or girls were in a situation like this, would you consider a dell at 50% off?
