    i could really use a new computer right now but dell doesn't seem to show the drop in price. no i don't want to build my own as it's a business expense anyway and i really don't want to deal with it. so any ideas when they will drop their pricing?
    thanks,

    if it's a business expense, then why do you really care about the $100 drop? is this your personal business? work only gave you so much of a budget?

    They usually only have enough parts to last them 2 or 3 days on hand at any time, but I would suspect that most places like Dell would be showing the price changes by the end of the week, or just pretend there wasn't a drop and keep the extra monies.

    note that the Jul 22 price drop actually applies to 3 existing chips, and 5 new chips, not all.
    A new E6550 could be $175+, while the old E6420 could stay at $180+ for a short while.

    most will probably ride it out till their current stock (which they paid full price) depletes.

    unless,.. that is,... a competitor such as HP or Gateway, drop their prices immediately, and Dell needs to follow to compete.

    well i'm looking to get the 2.4 ghz quad core and i know that it dropped quite a bit and so that's what i'm waiting for. i really don't want to build my own but if that's what it takes, then that's what it takes.

    depending on your budget, you may get a better bang for the buck if you build it yourself compared to getting an off the shelf system.
    Building the system itself if pretty easy, if you are good with your hands (played with lego and construx as a kid), it's a piece of cake, the hard part is picking the right parts.

    What sort of budget are you looking at?
