Hi

I am surprised that this board is not a bit more crowded. This company has an interesting hook for computer buyers. They are one of only a few companies where you can walk into a store and pick up a Dell. You can lease to own, or you can get an incredible discount on a 90 day purchase.

I heard of this and wanted to see how much it would cost to rent one. I walked in discussed the terms and I bought one immediately. I had never owned a Dell computer, mainly because I was never one that could wait to till it got shipped to me. Additionally, I like having a sells rep around to complain to if the machine does not work. I went into a Gateway country store ready to buy a Gateway till they told me it would take a few days to ship it to me. I walked out immediately. This did not appeal to me.

Aaron Rents told me that I could bring the computer into the store if it did not work and they would repair it there. This convenience, combined with the fact that I could just walk out with a Dell computer has me interested in the stock too.

The price for the Dell with flat screen monitor was cheaper than similar performance brands at Best Buys. In fact, most of the flat screens were more expensive than the whole Dell set-up.

I believe this will be a big seller for the company and a good outlet for DELL.
