first_imgEvery couple months we find a deal hot enough to proclaim to the geeks and users alike: don’t bother building a custom PC, just buy this one! That time has returned and we are here to tell you that this deal is a no-brainer for anyone shopping for a high performance PC.The feature-packed Dell XPS 8700 is their bread-and-butter PC, offering the right mix of technology and features at a price that can’t be beat. You get a nice smattering of the latest tech with today’s deal: a new Haswell Core i7 quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM, 1 terabyte hard drive, and 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 635 graphics. This is more than enough performance for even a demanding power-user and should handle what you throw at it for years to come.Aside from the hot new silicon, the 8700 comes with a lot of nice-to-have features. The front of the machine is adorned with a 19-in-1 media card reader, two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, audio and mic jacks, and an additional powered USB port for charging those mobile devices. Step to the rear and you’ll find another four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0, HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, Ethernet, and surround sound audio connections. 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth round out your connectivity and all of this is wrapped up in a sleek, piano black chassis.If you start doing the math on a premium PC chassis, 2013 Intel motherboard, Core i7-4770, Windows license, and the plethora of extra goodies backed into this model, your tab will come out way higher than this deal. And that’s not even considering the one year warranty that includes on-site service. This is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen this year and it won’t last long, so head over and check it out.Dell XPS 8700 Core i7 Haswell Quad-core Desktop for $699.99 + free shipping (reg. $924.99)Our other top deals:Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 16GB 7-inch Android 4.2 Tablet for $109 + free shipping (reg. $189 | via Lenovo)Customizable: Dell PowerEdge T110 II Intel Dual-core Server for $299 + free shipping (reg. $615 | via Dell)Seagate Expansion 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive for $49.99 + free shipping (reg. $109.99 | via NewEgg)last_img read more
