Today only, Woot Sellout has a refurbished Dell Studio 1737 notebook for $549.99, plus a very reasonable $5 for shipping. A similar model new from Dell would run you more than $1,000.
As Jamie Foxx said over and over again on Tuesday night's "American Idol," woot!
This is one seriously well-equipped desktop replacement. The Studio features a 17-inch wide-screen LCD, a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and a slot-loading DVD burner.
But wait, there's more. You also get Draft-N Wi-Fi, a 2-megapixel Webcam, and even an HDMI port for connecting to a big-screen TV or monitor.
The integrated GMA 4500MHD graphics processor is a little lightweight for high-end gaming, but it should handle the mainstream stuff just fine.
Even though this is a refurbished system, Dell backs it with a full one-year warranty. Bottom line: If you're in the market for a new notebook, one that's destined primarily for desk duty, grab this one. Now. It'll be gone at midnight tonight, and might very well sell out before then.
