Deal Details

Here is a popular FP deal from the past. Available only in-store at this price. You can reserve online if your local store has it. I am not sure if the in-store coupon would apply to kiosk orders.

Official Lenovo Windows 7 and 8 drivers:

Windows 7 drivers for the H535 that are missing from the Lenovo site:

Try this for the SM Bus (and hopefully the USB) Controller:
AMD Chipset Drivers - AMD Support & Drivers [amd.com]

Get this for the Display Driver:
AMD Catalyst Display Driver for Windows 7/Windows 8 64-bit [amd.com]

Quick comparison of the i3 and A10 performance:

A10-5700 is insignificantly slower than i3 but has much better graphics. This PC is a great option for those who are not planning any upgrades: Open the box, hook it up and use it for a few years as is. Set it and forget it kind of thing. More specifically:

This processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU remains hard to beat in terms of features performance and well all the goodness you can expect from a great APU. Value and fun is what the platform offers. Our conclusion stands, a A10 5700 with an A75 or A85X based motherboard for normal daily usage is just fine, it's great for HTPCs and even a game or two albeit in lower resolutions.

This have USB 3 or 2? Says something in the description about USB 3 but from specs its USB 2 (I assume 2 but why does it mention USB 3?)

How good of a Gaming PC could this be? What would be a good GPU to put in here or is it fine as is?

According to the manual, it has both USB 3.0 and 2.0. If you plan to add a discrete graphics card, I would not recommend this model. The big selling point here - and a large part of the overall value - is the built-in HD 7660D graphics. If that's too little for your gaming needs, it's probably not the right PC for you.

Maybe I'm missing something but the coupon says $50 off a computer priced $499.99 or more. This computer is priced at $449.99 so should not be eligible.

It's a common misunderstanding:

Got it, thanks! So are there any cheaper computers? I want want as cheap as possible - don't need good specs. But I couldn't find anything better online (I now the coupon doesn't work online but figured they'd have the same models instore). Might be worth a trek out there to see what there is.

Isn't it available online? Go in and do a Kiosk order. Order & pay in store using the $100 off coupon. They'll ship it to your house.

I can give 1st hand confirmation that the coupon works on this desktop. It is, indeed, $100 off a compuer regularly priced $499.99+.

I burned 2 of the $200 eGift cards on this.

So, got this rig for roughly $305 OOP after tax, etc.

There is a Lenovo H520 with an i3 for $300 AC if you can find one. It is still listed on the website, but no inventory data is shown. Historically, it is as good as it gets with a $100 off coupon from Staples.

I don't understand why it would not work on the Dell since its regular price is $549???
