Newegg offers the refurbished HP Pavilion 500-281 Intel Haswell Core i3 3.4GHz Desktop PC for $249.99. This $20 mail-in rebate drops it to $229.99. With free shipping, that's $170 off and the lowest total price we could find, although it was $10 less in our expired mention from four days ago. This desktop features an Intel Haswell Core i3-4130 3.4GHz dual-core processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, media card reader, keyboard, mouse, and Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. Deal ends May 31.
A 1-year warranty applies, although it's not clear who provides it.
