HP Elite e9270t Core i5 Desktop for $854.99

For what pre-builts usually go for... That's.. Not too bad at all. Too bad it will be filled with all that useless junk.

I bought the Spaceballs Blu-Ray.

Yeah I have one at the moment and I've had to send it in twice. Had it for 2 years now. I don't want one in the future. Just saying for what that is, not considering the company etc.

Keep the good deals coming! I bought my G9 mouse last week from one of these listings and love it. Now, if I only had 1,000 dollars for that TV + PS3 deal.

Vol 1 was a bust, nothing I'm after. Why not actually have a CAMERA in the cameras section next time... or a monitor under Monitors... Surprised the $450 discount for the Macbook Air from MacMall didn't make the list, nor any of the super cheap Netbooks... (like the Eee from one of the office stores).

46" TV for 1700? similar TV lacking the useless 120hz option with a PS# for $999? I bought a 42" 1080p 60hz a 3 months ago for $500... 46" was only $200 more then. (was not a Sony, but I'd call that a plus!)

Hopefully Vol 2, 3, etc will be more worth while.

btw: that Dell "Server", its a E5400, 800MHz frontside on a 1066 bus (pointless) without VT, only 2MB cache, a cheap SATA HDD and and 1GB of 800MHz single ranked non-ECC DIMM, no RAID 5 support (even onboard), since it only supports 2 internal HDDS... A Barebones systems from just about anyone else would be a more powerful, more configurable system for less money and make a better server. Slapping the title "server" on a low end desktop that lacks a video card does NOT mean anyone should EVER use it for a server (especially that properly configured with a backup systems and base server software, enough RAM to justuify 64Bit, and 2 HDDs, this box retails for over $11,000. NO, that is NOT a typ0. A $290 server is an $11,000 system once Microsoft and Backup licenses, DR media, and RAID 1 drives get included (and you can't put 2 NICs in it as configured!) Why not simply go up a grand or two to a REAL server if you're already spending that much... and take advantage of hot swap drives, RAID and server hardware monitoring. Stupid, stupid, stupid...

Of course it isn't going to be a fully super powerful server, thats not the point. However, throw a linux server OS on there and upgrade the hard drives and set them up in raid 1, and you have a wonderfully cheap media server for you home.

For 250$ plus the cost of whatever hard drives you decide to go with, you really can't beat that price

Every holiday season, with all of the holiday "deals", about 95% of the specials are not that impressive or are for very low-quality items.

That Dell "server" above is a great example of the typical 95%. For the price they're asking for it, I could easily build a computer that would not only be better, but it would also not be hobbled by the propitiatory case & hardware that Dell loves to use for the majority of their computers.

Is it just me or are the discounts not adding up? I clicked on them both and added the coupon and nowhere near those prices.
