For a limited time, Dell is offering up a 28% discount on the XPS 8900 desktop PC. With a quad-core Skylake CPU, incredibly fast DDR4 memory, and plenty of room for expansion, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better desktop with a price this low.
- Dell XPS 8900 quad-core desktop for $674.99 (List price: $949.99 — Coupon code: 10OFFXPS)
In terms of specs, the XPS 8900 is rocking a sixth generation quad-core 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-6700 processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM (2133MHz), a discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 730 graphics card (with 2GB of memory), a 1TB 7200RPM hard drive, a DVD drive, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi support. A wired keyboard and mouse are included at no extra cost, so you’ll just need an HDTV or PC monitor to get going. This model uses HDMI, so it’ll work with many modern displays. But if you need support for other connectors, you’ll be able to find them on Amazon on the cheap.
By default, Windows 10 Home (64-bit) is included for free, so you’ll benefit from the Cortana personal assistant, the dedicated Xbox app, the new Edge browser, and countless apps in the Windows Store right out of the box.
The GeForce GT 730 that comes with this machine will work with some games, but you’ll definitely want to invest in a better card if you’re interested in playing recent releases. The CPU and RAM in this model are solid, so a new graphics card is probably the only major upgrade worth investing in right away. And regardless of which card you end up with, the availability of DirectX 12 and game DVR in Windows 10 can substantially improve your gaming experience.
While this machine lists for $949.99, Dell is currently selling it directly for just $749.99. Apply coupon code “10OFFXPS” during checkout, and you’ll only end up spending $674.99 (plus any applicable taxes). And since the shipping is free, you’ll be saving even more on your order.
If the model above is slightly out of your price range, Dell is offering a slightly lower-end configuration for just $594.89. The processor drops down to a sixth generation quad-core 2.7GHz Intel Core i5-6400, but the specs are otherwise very similar. Whichever one you prefer, you’ll end up with a solid machine.
