Canada

Is there a way to order from Dell.com from Canada? Dell.ca never seems to have the same deals.

No.

I am not even sure if Dell US will ship to a Canadian address. But, if they would, you would then you'll pay the customs fee, which is in the order of $25 or more minimum via UPS (may be less via US Postal Service), regardless of the cost, and then GST, PST and shipping to Canada. That pretty well wipes out any savings. There are services in Buffalo which will accept a package on your behalf for $5 or so. But this only makes sense if you live very close to the border and its worth your while to take the time and expend the gas to drive there and back.

It only makes sense if you have it shipped to a US address and can bring it back because you are going there anyway or you have a friend who is. That way you can import it using your personal exemption when you return.

Yeah, this is a good deal. I ordered mine on Monday this week ($165) and it showed up on Wed. It was the D2 revision.

Was a super easy install (was expecting much worse). It has been recording tons the last 2 days with no issues/lockups.

15% Dell Deal Expires 7/31/2009

FYI, Current Dell coupon that works until end of July is 65G7RQ11J?M2LH putting it at $186.99 . Not as attractive as the others, but better than list.
