Dell PC Purchase?
My buddy told me I'd have to be a sucker to buy a high performance PC from Dell for the price they make you pay. However, I currently have a 30% discount that's good until the end of April. I was hoping to get some input on whether this is a decent deal or not. The specs of the Studio XPS 9100 system I've put together are listed below. It has a pretax price of $3,620. With the 30% discount it'd be around $2,534. Thoughts? Comments?
