Since I handle many many websites already, I decided that I might as well jump in the site flip business. I found an undervalued property and I’m hoping to make a nice ROI on it. I have every intention of selling this site in the near future and won’t hang on to it for too long.

So you’re an online business expert, and the money is rolling in. Time to invest it. You have your GOOG stock primed, some money sitting in a liquid money market account, a broker for your stocks, your ROTH IRA and your medical HSA. You also invest heavily in your business. But what about short term CDs. Can certificates of deposit be regular earners for you? Where can you find the highest cd rates? (hint, click the link).
Wow, what a niche! CDs are something that banks are always pushing because it secures them the cash they need to invest in loans to their customers. A lot of people like the security of guaranteed appreciation that a CD offers. Others hear about the rates and wonder if there are any higher. They then head out on a search to see who has the best cd rates, creating a perfect niche for a site like Bankaholic to provide the information they are looking for.

Dell is hot brand right now. I know, bad play on words. But seriously Dell is still one of the most trusted brands when it comes to home computers. They recently purchased Alienware, and while keeping the Alienware business fully intact, have also seriously upped their own high-end PC offerings.
My two previous employers were Dell powered offices. Desktops and two monitors for everyemployee at one, while laptops and dockingstations at the other. I had to deal with their warranties only one time when a dockingstation fizzled and died. Dell didn’t even bother repairing it, they just sent us a new one and us send the old one back in the box. We were a medium sized office too, so we didn’t have that big of an account and we still got great support.
So when it comes time for me to pick up a new laptop (or I might change my mind and go desktop in the near future), I will probably have a tough time deciding if I should go Dell or Apple. I’m kind of curious to try the Apple way again, but Dell does have some nice offerings in an environment I’m comfortable with (Ah, Windows, your familiarity will always fain me).
So in spirit of trying to be a good consumer, I’m shopping early. I’ve found several laptops that I’m interested in (and damn those XPS 700 desktops are juicy. I could seriously see myself with one of those instead). One nice tool I can be armed with is a site offering Dell Coupons! I can watch that each week and salivate as the new deals roll in. Knowing me I’d probably visit daily to see if anything new was added or if there were any updates. A dual-core notebook for $1,000 isn’t bad. But a dual-core notebook for $850 is oh so sweeter.
So, Apple or Dell? Notebook or Desktop? We’ll wait and see.
(Well now I’m curious: Are there even any Apple coupon sites or coupon codes out there?)
