Bestselling Online Deals from Dell as Company Returns to Private Owners
By Vittorio Hernandez | February 7, 2013 10:58 AM EST
Dell is taking a tough road this year as it goes private with a $24.4 billion deal. The founder of the computer company, Michael Dell, in partnership with Silver Lake, made a striking deal to take back Dell in the biggest buyback in history since the 2008 global financial crisis.
Dell made a loan of $2 billion from Microsoft which will have an impact on the Windows creator and its other OEM relations. "This has to strengthen the relationship between Microsoft and Dell. If you and I were OEMs, we might have thought that we played in a moderately-level playing field," Michael Cherry of Directions on Microsoft said.
"I believe this transaction will open an exciting new chapter for Dell, our customers, and team members. Dell has made solid progress executing this strategy over the past four years, but we recognize that it will still take more time, investment, and patience," Mr Dell said in a statement.
Dell seems to be holding on with everything it needs to go through and would likely pull through from its current dire straits.
To help the company recover from the onslaught of tablets and smartphones now preferred by buyers over PCs and laptops, Dell, through its Web site, offers deals with free shipment, easy returns, and Dell Promo eGift cards worth 5% of purchase price.
Some of the Dell devices included in their best-selling deals are:
Inspiron 15: $454.99 in the market, discounted to $399.99, with features of Windows 8, Intel Core i3, 15.6-inch HD display, and HD webcam.
Inspiron 17: The lowest price offered by Dell online in this line up of device is $449.99, featuring Windows 8, 500GB storage, Intel Core i3, 17.3-inch HD screen, and 10-key number pad.
Inspiron 17R: Offers a combination of large screen, huge storage capacity, and fast processor, at $849.99 versus the market value of $1,043.99. The device is a redesign of Inspiron 17 with Intel Core i7, 17.3-inch HD screen, and 1TB of storage capacity.
For tablet computers, Dell promotes XPS 10 for everyday usage and Latitude 10 for business and full packed entertainment. Both devices are offered starting at $499.00 with some difference when it comes to OS version, processor type, and battery type.
Other devices include XPS One 27" Touch, a desktop computer sold for $1,599.99 which is more expensive than owning an iMac 21.5-inch. And the XPS 12 Ultrabook which is a combination of notebook power and tablet form into one body made out from premium materials, and costs $1,199.99 per unit.
