On the left is a nicely-configured Dell Latitude D620 laptop as you’d see it in Dell’s Medium & Large Business store. On the right is the exact same computer if configured in the Small Business store:
Not only does the Small Business store offer a significantly lower price to begin with, but they also automatically include the advertised $250 discount special.
Basically, Dell is taking advantage of the fact that large businesses often have bureaucracies that don’t have the time or inclination to seek out discount pricing. So they simply charge them 40% more and laugh all the way to the bank.
I shudder to think how much they charge the Government for these.
