Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Really $99?
The inquisitive guys over at Engadget have done their digging and have answered a question I had myself – is the $99 Inspiron Mini 9 really a genuinely good deal? Dell have a history of offering many confusing deals/promotions that seem to be too good to be true at times and Engadget took it upon themselves to break the $99 deal down for us all.
Basically, the deal is that you buy a full sized laptop/notebook from Dell and you can buy a Mini 9 for $99. It seems that Dell are actually charging the customer close to full price for the notebook in what seems to be an effort to absorb the cost of the Mini 9 – in other words, they are charging more for the notebook with the Mini 9 offer than they are if you buy the notebook on its own and the difference in price is roughly the cost of the Inspiron Mini’s list price of $349.
Not such a hot deal it seems, if you aren’t actually in the market for a new notebook. Certainly worth thinking twice before rushing into the deal in order to get your hands on the Inspiron Mini for the tempting price of $99.
