Dell will be running a very good coupon starting at 6:00 a.m. CST tomorrow, we can post it at 1:00 a.m. EST tonight (midnight CST). Now, it's not $750 off like we had in October...but getting close and free shipping and free memory upgrades are going to be stackable on this offer.
He clearly wrote the message on "02/16/2005 : 7:52:40 PM" and said "we can post it at 1:00 a.m. EST tonight". Well, today is well past last midnight, hence my question. Just read the date on his first post.
Nevermind anyway, I found links to the coupons. They are indeed pretty good. I just spec'ed out a Inspiron 6000 at the highest, the rebate is $800. One thing that concerns me though is the integrated video card, which probably doesn't have any video memory of its own (Intel® Media Accelerator 900 Graphics). Other than that, the machine rox!

[br][?] Can a newb ask - when will this coupon get posted?
YOU RULE! Thanks for the update! This just saved me $175 (If I ordered a new battery de novo without the system).
I just called Dell to send me an extra 9 Cell battery rather than send back the one on its way and reordering a new configuration. There was no problem at all. The person on the phone (Call center from New Dehli) was very pleasant and helpful (my mother in law is from New Dehli, also)!
Here is my configuration:
Pentium M 1.6 Ghz
512 Mb RAM (shared) (I know I could have gotten 256 MB and placed)
60 GB HD
9 Cell Battery + Extra 9 Cell Battery
I have an external 16 X Dual layer Sony DVD burner at home so I didn't need one for the laptop.

Dell Inspiron 6000
1.6 GHZ Centrino (Sonoma)
WUXGA 15.4" WS
512 MB RAM
60 GB HD
Still looking for a case....
Palmone Tungsten C/WIFI
glad you got some money back on the order! I used to work with a group of Indian guys, they were all really nice...it's certainly not a surprise that you were treated well even though it was an overseas call center. In fact, if you start talking to one of those guys/gals on the other end of the phone about Bollywood movies, cricket or your favorite Indian curry they might just give you another $100 off because they like you 
can we add student discount on top of that (of cuz if student discount ever exists..) ? i really dont like the cheap plastic, but with the price, i will give it a try. the previous dell i owned was 4150, it felt much sturdier than the inspiron they have today.
