ironically, being one that constantly whines about bad subjects, HTML,
top posting and the like, i saw nothing wrong with the heads up.  ok,
maybe a couple nitpicks.

first, it would have been nice to get more notice. :-)  but, more
importantly, i just checked out www.dell.com and i see no such deal.
perhaps a URL to help out.  that kind of deal really is worth knowing
about, but only if it's legit.
