Is this a good value for $399.99? Originally $599 but is it really worth $600? The main specs are Intel® 3rd Generation Core™ i5 2.7GHz (with Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz), 8GB RAM, 1TB 7200 RPM HD, W8 64 Bit, HDMI and 2 USB 3.0. It's a special limited time offer.

This is the CPU in the system is a slightly down-clocked version of this one:

So just the CPU alone is worth about $150ish. Factor in the hard drive, RAM, case, OS, and various other bits, plus the warranty...they are actually taking a loss on the machine at that price.

So yes it's worth it as regards just the price.
