I could get this DELL 8300 series desktop for $750 at my door. I need this to handle Photoshop, Lightroom, HD video editing and rendering, and maybe a game or two.
I just gave back my laptop today and looking to get a desktop asap. I looked at what it would cost me to build one, and honestly the price difference is not that big.
