I ordered from a dealer in CT and it just arrived there yesterday. When I ordered it one Canadian dollar equaled about a buck ten US so I got to save some money there, plus the dealer managed to get me all the upgrades I wanted for basically no extra cost. I "built" the same machine through the Dell website and it cost just over $800 but I managed to get it for $550 shipped.
I had been looking at the Inspirons before I found this one (never looked in the small business section before) and the same thing would have cost a fortune but been in a prettier case if I'd gotten the Inspiron instead. And, I would have been stuck with Vista.
One other benefit to the Vostro is that I noticed in many reviews that folks have said it doesn't include all that bundled "bonus" crap that I'd just have to remove, so that's great too.
