I just oredered a new Dell Desktop. Apples to apples, they were cheaper than Gateway, Compaq and HP.

Same here on the Dell price. I configured a couple of value systems identically "side by side" at Dell's & Gateway's web sites. The Dell was $370 cheaper. Really surprised me.

In addition, I don't have to pay Dell sales tax (you are responsible for paying it yourself), whereas you do with Gateway.

Well, I had to pay Dell sales tax since I, like Dell, reside in Texas.
