If you're shopping for a desktop computer system, check out the deals at Dell Home. Right now they have hot deals and instant savings of up to $379 on desktop systems of all price ranges–from very cheap computers on the low end to full-featured, top-performance systems on the high end.
At the low end, they have a Dell Inspiron 530s slim tower computer for only $379. While this computer is for those on a tight budget, some of the specs are quite respectable. It has a 2.5 GHz dual-core processor (Intel E5200), 3GB of Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 800MHz, and a 500GB SATA hard drive that runs at 7200 RPMs. Plus it has a 16x DVD burner and is loaded with Windows Vista Home Premium.
From those specifications, it is actually quite a nice computer for under $400. Of course you can also customize it to your liking by choosing upgrades.
One thing it lacks is a monitor, which is not surprising given that it costs just $379. If you already have a monitor, you can re-use it with this system. Otherwise, they have an Inspiron 530 mini tower system, with 17" flat panel monitor, for just $499.
It has some similar hardware to the 530s above, but it steps up to a 2.8 GHz dual-core processor (Intel Core 2 Duo E7400). That CPU is quite fast, and can handle most applications with ease. This system comes with the 64-bit version of Vista Home Premium.
If you don't have a lot of space, don't like clutter, or simply like sleek designs, check out the Dell Studio One 19. It is a compact all-in-one PC (similar to an Apple iMac), where the whole computer is built into a flat panel monitor.
In this case it is an attractive solid pure white design with a webcam and touch screen built-in. The display is an 18.5" widescreen LCD with a 16:9 aspect ration (like HDTV) and a WXGA (1366x768) resolution.
There is a slot load CD/DVD burner drive that has double layer write capability. It is really cool how you slide the disc in the slot, rather than using the more-cumbersome, and less-cool looking CD trays.
Additionally the Studio One 19 has a 2.5 GHz dual-core processor (Intel E5200), 3 GB of 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM, and a 7200 RPM 320 GB SATA hard drive. Plus it has integrated nVidia GeForce 9400 graphics acceleration.
For a PC that is great at PC gaming, editing of video clips and photos, running complicated number-crunching with large data sets, playing hi-def multimedia, and just about anything else you can throw at it, check out the Studio XPS system.
They have one for just $899 after $249 in instant savings, and it has the incredibly fast (fastest Intel processor) Core i7 CPU. The starting model has the 2.66 GHz Intel Core i7-920 Processor (Quad-Core, 8MB L3 Cache).
This system also has the faster DDR3 memory. In the starting configuration it has a whopping 6 GB of Tri-Channel DDR3 SDRAM running at 1066MHz. It also has a 640GB 7200RPM hard drive, and a 16x dual-layer CD/DVD burner. It has a video card with dedicated video memory for faster graphics: a 512MB ATI Radeon HD 4350.
If you want a unique case design and the ultimate in upgrade possibilities, buy a Dell Studio XPS 435. It is Dell's flagship multimedia desktop PC, and it is just $1099 after $299 off.
It can be upgraded to Core i7 Extreme processors, up to 4.5TB of storage with 3 internal hard drive bays and up to 24 GB of DDR3 tri-channel memory.
