    Hello,

    I'm thinking about pulling the trigger and just wanted a 2nd opinion if this was a good deal or not? I don't care if it is red or black, color is not an issue for me.

    The specs seem fine if that's what you need. The only thing I would do is check if the same model direct from Dell is cheaper, especially if there are Holidays close to the time you want to pull the trigger.
