This (the 27 inch Envy) is a good deal, i bought mine for about the same price near black friday on the dell outlet and really like the system. other than getting very warm/hot on the top middle this system is my fav.
Bought one of the XPS8700 units last year and am running into a technical issue. When I contacted Dell they told me the unit was flagged as stolen, and I am unable to get service. Just contacted Woot so hopefully they can straighten this out, but buyer beware on the Dell refurbished units…make sure you transfer ownership or register it as soon as it arrives to avoid the issue I am having.
