Dell + Sony Reader = Not a Good Deal

I don't usually follow the herd, but I decided to make an exception in this case. Dell is having a 2 day sale where if you buy a Sony Pocket Edition with certain models of Dell laptops and desktops you're supposed to save money. The problem here is that you don't actually save any money.

I've checked the prices for all of the PCs offered under this deal, and the price for tha package deal is $200 more than the computer alone. This may not seem like much, but the Pocket Edition is on sale right now for $169, which means that Dell is cheating their customers out of $30!

There is one exception, though, and that is the Dell Mini 10. It has a package price that is only $100 more than the netbook alone, which means that you save $70. I would get this package if I was in need of a laptop.

  1. That and the fact that I will never ever ever buy another piece of Sony hardware. Absolutely everything I have ever bought from Sony has failed prematurely. From stereos, and DVD players to boom boxes to computer hardware.

    Avoid Sony and you will save yourself a lot of pain and aggravation.
