I went shopping for a new monitor tonight and wound up buying it from an unexpected source. After checking Amazon, Buy.com, CDW, Microwarehouse, Insight, and a few others, I stopped by Dell. I was fascinated to find the same monitor was about $40 cheaper from Dell than any other source – and with a promotional deal for free shipping to boot, another $35-50 swing in the price. Dell is making a big push to sell peripherals, but they’ve significantly increased their inventory and I hadn’t realized they were so competitive on price. Check them out when you’re buying hardware!
