Torn between Amazon’s discounted $140 Echo, $40 Echo Dot, $75 Fire Kids Edition and $115 Fire TV Gaming Edition? Before burning out a sizable chunk of your holiday shopping budget on the e-commerce giant’s super-affordable in-house gear, you may want to consider putting every penny you’ve saved of late towards a more “meaningful” purchase.
How does a $999 CyberPowerPC Oculus ready GXiVR8020A gaming desktop & Oculus Rift virtual reality headset bundle sound? Like a mouthful, right? Also, pretty expensive at first for a Black Friday “Deal of the Day” if you don’t wrap your head around exactly what you’re getting here.
Namely, the Oculus Rift, one of the world’s most popular, best-reviewed first-wave VR contraptions, typically sold for $599 all by its lonesome, and a fully compatible Windows 10 system with Intel Core i5 “Skylake” power, 8GB DDR4 memory, 1TB HDD, AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics, six USB 3.0 ports, as well as four USB 2.0, one HDMI, Display Port, and Network Ethernet connectivity.
The latter desktop PC currently costs $700 when not bundled with the Rift for a holiday-special promo, so all in all, Amazon offers you the unprecedented opportunity of saving 300 bucks. Plus, you even qualify for additional $100 Oculus Store Credit and a free copy of the EVE: Valkyrie multiplayer dogfighting shooter game. It almost goes without saying you need to act fast though.
