Default Parts Purchase Went Easy - 01-10-2009, 07:54 PM

I just purchased some upgrade parts from Dell as well as from MyDigitalDiscount via eBay. I just wanted to let everyone know that my actual purchase experience with Dell was great and very easy. I got a knowledgeable rep the first time who gave me no trouble ordering the parts.

I ordered the following:

XX982 Dell Wireless 5530 Mini-card for AT&T.......................$199.99
J613H Dell Wireless Bluetooth 2.1 Minicard..........................$29.99
U061H Keyboard-Single pointing, US-International..................$14.99
N740H LCD cover, White IMR, WWAN antenna included, 910......$29.99

The first two parts were available via QuoteToOrder and were provided by Sandra Holcomb at 512-946-1733 (business). The last two parts had to be requested from the warehouse so she transferred me. The parts rep, Gabby at 800-901-3355 ext 724-4161 even offered me the N740H in a half a dozen other colors unsolicited. So all in all, my experience was not at all like some of the others I have heard about.

I tried to order N715H (ASSY,ANT,INT,WWAN,RT,910) rather than N740H but was told N715H had been discontinued.

I also just picked up a 64GB Runcore drive from MDD via eBay for $197 and a 2Gb RAM stick from hotdeals*4*less on ebay for $27.99.

The problem with this is that now my "inexpensive" $400 Mini 9 is now a not-so-inexpensive $900 Mini 9.
Edit: Oops wait, I forgot the $80 blue-ray/dvd make it an an almost $1000 mini now. Ouch.
