Hi guys

So i have decided to purchase an external monitor for my laptop as it is too glossy and small and have set my eye on the dell u2312hm monitor.

I have seen it go as low as 299 from computerlounge but sale ended last week and it can be bought from dell for ~313 after student discount.

Should i wait and see if there would be any discounts in the near future or 300 is about the lowest it would go?

How is the dell warranty service in NZ?

Looking at the price history here that looks like a reasonable price. It will go lower, but you would need a crystal ball for that.

Yeah, the price did go as low as 295 from 2Moro & IT , but apart from price i want a good warranty support at the same time. So i was wondering how dell is doing in nz, auckland in particular as im a bit warry about buying directly from Dell and not from nearby reliable computer stores such as computerlounge, pbtech, pcforce, playtech etc.
I've read many articles that dell service isn't so favourable in us, but than again it only means that is has alot of customers.
