Black Friday Computer Deals (Dell eCoupons + eCoupon Promo + Discount = :)

So I've been hunting for a new PC/laptop and was wondering what a good deal would be. I'm the type to wait around a month to see if anything pops up and I must say that I am pretty happy with what I found.

My uses:

  • Watching HD videos (without lag)
  • Potential HD video editing
  • Light gaming
I already have a laptop, so portability was not a main factor and for now, the old school desktops has a much better bang for your buck in terms of specs.

Naturally, with Black Friday around the corner, one would think to wait for that but after seeing all the flyers, only the low end stuff was going on sale. I was set on either the Dell XPS 8700 beast below from Costco or the Lenovo IdeaPad Y410p laptop.
