Dell Home offers its Dell Inspiron 3000 Series Intel Haswell Core i3 3.6GHz Small Desktop PC for $399.99 with free shipping. (B&H Photo-Video charges the same.) That's tied with our mention from last week and the lowest total price we could find by $2; most stores charge beyond $410. It features an Intel Core i3-4160 3.6GHz Haswell dual-core processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, and Windows 8.1 64-bit.
The company cuts hours for the holidays, and then bases bonuses on those reduced hours. Is it fair?
