Get a Nintendo Wii for $174.99 shipped

Hot on the heels of Nintendo's price cut, which brought the Wii down to $199.99, Dell just shaved off another $25. No coupons, no rebates, just $175 out the door.

A new-in-box Wii system for $175 shipped?! Get 'em while they're hot. Dell

Gone are the days when if you wanted a Wii, you'd have to pay double or even triple the list price on eBay. Dell has Wii systems for just $174.99 shipped.

These are new consoles, not refurbs, and you don't have to mess around with rebates or even coupon codes. That's pretty surprising given that the Wii just got its $199.99 price cut last week.

Of course, rumor has it there's a new Wii system, or at least a new bundle, waiting in the wings, which could help explain this lowest-price-ever offer. Still, the holidays are a-comin', and if you have a kid who might react this way to a Wii under the tree (or menorah), can you really pass up $175?

While you're at it, consider grabbing the new Wii Sports Resort bundle for $59.99, which includes the game and a pair of MotionPlus controller add-ons. That's 10 bucks cheaper than if you bought the game and a second add-on.

This deal's been on Dell's site for at least a day, so I don't know how much longer it'll last (and, frankly, I'm surprised it's not sold out).

What do you think? Will this finally get you on the Wii wagon, or do you think Dell's clearing out inventory to make room for something better? Hmmm. Tough one.

Update: Dell's offer seems to have expired, but check the comments--a few eagle-eyed readers have found a similar deal at Amazon.
