Can dell outlet be bartered down?

Hi i am thinking of geting a laptop as a second pc, amily for the kids to do homeworkk on, play sims and to use occasionally away from home. I am leanig towards dell outlet. First question is what to go for. It will be maily for above. We dont play games other than sims and do on video editing (and the main pc is capable if we decide to do this). It is as a backup system. So.. what is a realistic spec for doing what we want and second, is it worth phoning though to dell to get a discount?

Many thanks

Dellman, thanks. I have doen a little bit more reseacrh on this and am looking at the inspiron 6000 with 1024 mb, 56 video card for 699. it is more expensive on the outlet site and the cheapest i can find on there seems to be aroun the £750 mark. Doesnt make sense to me?

Prices have fairly risen today on ordinary Dell UK offers - laptop I have been thinking about up £100!

Hi, yes have just noticed that myself, but the one i'm interested in has 'only' gone up by £50. Doesnt make sense to me. I always thought that computer prices came down. I wonder though whether it isnt becuase it is the end of a spcial deal and they have to then offer at a higher price so that they canthen offer a new 'special deal'?

There are certain regulations that need to be followed when advertising items as "Sale" price....
