Not necessarily for us [H]ers, but if a family member is looking for a new desktop (how I saw it), Best Buy's Deal of the Day includes a Dell Inspiron desktop with a Core i3 4150 @ 3.5ghz (dual core +HT), 8gb ram, a 1tb spinner and USB 3.0.
For $399 it's kind of hard to beat.Those Haswell Core i3 desktop chips are very impressive, imho, especially for the price.
So I saw this laptop at BB the other day when buying my rMBP and was pretty impressed by the build quality. This is not your normal plastic Dell. Chassis is completely made from aluminum and it is actually thinner than the 13" rMBP. My wife was on the market for a new laptop and she is not a Mac person and she really liked the machine so we found a store that had one and brought it home.
