Once again, we like to belabour the point that desktop computers can pack a whole lot more power than their more portable laptop counterparts. The Dell XPS 8300 on special today happens to pack quite a bit. A core i7 3.4Ghz quad-core processor for one, as well as “8GB RAM, 1TB Hard Drive, two USB 3.0 ports, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, 1GB Radeon HD 6770 graphics, 15-month McAfee SecurityCenter, Multimedia Keyboard, Laser Mouse and more.” What’s more, the desktop today comes packaged with a 27 inch monitor. Usually selling for $2,186, today it’s $1,389, shipped.
