Use code: DELLDT579 to drop the price almost 50% off. If you were waiting to upgrade to the latest and greatest look no further. This uses the current generation of Intel's Skylake processors. What's more it comes with a rare 16GB of RAM and a large 2TB hard drive. A typical desktop would give you half those amounts and likely you would have a processor a tier below. This is one of Dell redesigned desktops and takes up 45% less space and has a modern design that will look good in any office. This is really an incredible deal that we don't see often and if there was need for a desktop then look no further.
The Microsoft Band 2 is equipped with a GPS, UV monitor, barometer and of course tracks your heart rate, calories burned and sleep quality. With the bonus $100 Dell gift card you are effectively only paying $100 which is far cheaper than anything FitBit offers with a GPS and is almost the same price as the FitBit Charge which has no GPS. This second generation is a huge improvement and fixes tons of small issues with 1st generation Band. It has a comfortable and bright curved AMOLED display and is jam packed with 10 different sensors for all the information you can need about yourself and your environment.

These are some of the best prices we see all year and generally Lenovo only offers a 15-20% discount on their ThinkPad line.
