Looking for a powerful desktop that won’t break the bank? Check out the Inspiron 3847 from Dell. With a quad-core CPU, plenty of RAM, and tons of potential for expansion, this PC is a great bargain — especially when you use today’s coupon code.
What kind of specs are we looking at, though? Inside, it has a fourth generation quad-core 3.6GHz Intel Core i7-4790 processor, integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600, 16GB of DDR3 RAM (1600MHz), a 2TB 7200RPM hard drive, a DVD burner, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi support. As a nice little bonus, a wired keyboard and mouse come along for free — all you’ll need to get started is a display. Since it has an HDMI port and a VGA port on the back, you can easily connect to your existing monitor or HDTV.
And if you want to beef up your machine after purchase, it has two PCIe x1 slots, a PCIe x16 slot, and a Mini-Card slot. If you want to turn it into a gaming machine, you can quickly pop in a discrete graphics card, and you’re off to the races. A decent mid-range card will only cost in the ballpark of 200 bucks, so using this as a starting point makes for a surprisingly affordable rig.
This PC ships with Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) installed by default, but it comes with a license for Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit) as well. Better yet, you’ll be able to upgrade to Windows 10 at no additional cost until July 29, 2016. Whether you’re looking for legacy coverage or the cutting edge, the Inspiron 3847 has you covered.
Normally, this model retails for $982.99, but Dell is selling it directly for $829. Use coupon code “DELLDT579” during your checkout, and it will save you an extra 300 bucks. And if you take advantage of the free shipping option, you’ll save even more.
