Laptops and tablets are dandy, but neither of them can offer the same bang for your buck as a traditional tower PC. So if portability isn’t important to you, you’re definitely better off investing in a desktop PC like the XPS 8700 from Dell. It’s powerful, incredibly flexible, and it’s currently on sale for 27% off of the initial asking price.
- Dell XPS 8700 quad-core desktop PC for $674.99 (List price: $929.99 — Coupon code:4DPTKJ11F523L?)
On the inside, this configuration features a fourth generation quad-core 3.6GHz Intel Core i7-4790 processor, a discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 720 (with 1GB of memory), 8GB of DDR3 RAM (1600MHz), a 1TB 7200RPM hard drive, a tray loading DVD burner, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi support. On top of that, it also comes with a wired keyboard and mouse, so you’re already set if you plan on using an existing monitor or HDTV.
While the XPS 8700 still ships with Windows 8.1 (64-bit) installed, you’ll be eligible to upgrade to Windows 10 at no additional cost. So if you feel like upgrading the graphics card down the road, and turning this desktop into a gaming PC, you’ll have access to DirectX 12 for free. And since the built-in Xbox app allows you to stream your Xbox One games directly to your PC, even console gamers will benefit from Redmond’s latest OS.
