    What's the difference between these two Dell laptops (after upgrade)?


    Laptop 1: Inspiron 15 non-touch $549.99
    Intel® Pentium® Processor N3700
    128GB Solid State Drive
    4GB Single Channel DDR3L 1600MHz (4GBx1)
    yadda yadda
    Laptop 2: Inpiron 15 non-touch $449.99 ($399+$50 for CPU)
    Intel® Pentium® Processor N3700 (upgraded from Celeron)
    128GB Solid State Drive
    4GB Single Channel DDR3L 1600MHz (4GBx1)
    yadda yadda

    After upgrading the CPU on the latter laptop they have the EXACT SAME SPECS, but one is $100 cheaper.

    The prices are pretty much the same, but one is being discounted by dell, and not the other. And it has a rebate, I believe, which is added to this discount.

    That, and Dell is drunk.

    Oh good, I was worried that when I get it I'd find they cheaped out on something.

    But even without the rebate, the second laptop is still $11 cheaper.


    I suppose it pays to check what the customization options are when comparing Dell models.
