|draytm01||I just picked up the floor model (tower only) at the Limerick, PA store for $499.99! Giving it to my 2 boys for Christmas! Definitely YMMV!|

My Costco had one at $700, display model. Not quite $600, sadly. I asked the floor staff, the cashier, and the checkout manager if they price matched--showing them the $600 price tag posted here. Sadly, they do not. Prices vary from store to store and they mark down at their own discretion. But I still bought it. Haven't set it up yet, but 90 day return policy, 2 year warranty...this floor model is fine with me!
You can call Costcos in your area and give them the product number (657978) and they can check inventory. They won't have the marked down price in their database, but they have inventory count. But if they only have one or two at the location, odds are they have marked them down. They can also see if other nearby Costcos have stock. Hope that helps.

Last time I bought a display from Costco, they gave me 20% off. Hope you got a discount too, but consider yourself lucky that at least the display was available. BTW, if you don't like it for some reason, consider selling it on eBay.

The only real exception to the rule is workstation computers. I think you can still beat out some of the big builders when you're putting together a high end workstation.

See post 27 for the actual Costco price tag for the item.
I went yesterday to purchase the Dell, but they only had the display available and all the HP's were gone. Saw a display Lenovo 430 IdeaCentre for $300. Purchased that instead of the Dell and took it home. Very disappointed with it. Returned it this morning and glad that the display Dell was still available. Purchased it and now using it.

1) The warranty on your model sucks and you don't have NBD on-site. You're comfortable with self-service and RMA turnaround, including potential RMAs on DOA parts, or you have spare parts on hand if a component fails.
2) You require certain motherboard features (overclocking, undervolting, certain RAID configurations, Crossfire or SLI, etc.) which are absent from a manufacturer's home user motherboard.
3) You want a larger case or superior PSU for device expansion, cable organization, and case modification.
The i7-3770 is a very good encoding processor since it's a hyperthreaded quad-core. The memory timings probably suck and the modules might not be setup for dual channel, but I think you'd only see a 5% performance hit for that on encoding tasks. If you're just backing up your DVD and Blu-Ray collections, this would be more than adequate. This would also be a solid gaming system if you just replaced the OEM card.
If you're trying to future proof, don't spend $2,000. This only hurts you because of diminishing returns. The average user shouldn't really be spending more than $1,200 on a system.
