When I ordered my laptop from Dell, it said that the final price was $2518, plus S&H, plus applicable taxes. It estimated the S&H + Tax to be about $65, giving me a grand total of around $2590.
They said that the actual 'final' price would be communicated to me via e-mail within the next 1-3 days. . .
I just got the order confirmation e-mail. The final price is $2405.
I'm feeling very puzzled. However, I also have absolutely no desire at all to argue. <g>
