All-in-one PCs can be a true god-send for those who are technologically-challenged or just plain short on space. When you consider a traditional tower PC and monitor, each with their own power cords and video cable, you actually need a fair amount of desk space and organization.With systems like this Dell Inspiron One 2020, all that hassle is gone. Built around a 20-inch LCD, the One 2020 needs only enough space for the display, keyboard, and mouse with a single power cord to plug in. This significantly cuts down on the real estate needed and hassle of running wires, especially if you were to add a wireless keyboard and mouse.But compact doesn’t have to mean underpowered either. This model comes equipped with a dual-core Intel Core i3 processor, which has more than enough power to handle office and internet tasks for years to come, along with 4GB of RAM and a 1 Terabyte hard drive. A DVD burner is built into the One 2020, along with Wireless-N, Bluetooth 4.0, five USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, and a built-in webcam.For a while, all-in-one PCs held a premium over traditional towers, but we have seen that price premium erode through 2012 and into 2013. This is the lowest price we have seen yet on the Inspiron One 2020 and coming in under $500, an extremely strong value for a brand new home-use PC.Dell Inspiron One 2020 20-inch Core i3 All-in-one Windows 8 PC for $479.99 + free shipping (reg. $679.99 | use coupon 6V7N?Z6CGXZQ4H)Our other top deals:Apple iPhone 5 16GB [AT&T] (refurbished) for $149.99 + free shipping (reg. $199.99)Amazon Kindle Fire HD 16GB 8.9-inch 1920×1200 Tablet for $269 + free shipping (reg. $299 | use coupon FIRELOVE)Pentax Optio WG-2 Waterproof 16MP Digital Camera for $179 + free shipping (reg. $328.95)

Barclays chases growth by doubling bonusesOn 19 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today Barclays Bank has doubled the amount of money it is investing in staffbonuses to help it meet its ambitious plans for growth. The bank aims to double its value every four years and has changed its bonusstructure in a bid to achieve this objective. All staff are eligible to receive a bonus connected to the company’sperformance against its key objectives. The bank also operates a profit share scheme that pays out up to 9 per centof staff salaries. Jeremy Orbell, executive director of reward at Barclays, told delegates atthe conference last week that the company’s new bonus structure has at leastdoubled the amount of money the company spends on bonuses. He revealed Barclays staff are now eligible for bonuses of up to 40 per centof salary in most cases – and as high as 100 per cent for senior staff –whereas in the past, it only used to award bonuses of between 10 and 20 percent of salary. Orbell said the improved bonus scheme was introduced to improve staffretention. “Retention of key people by direct compensation and/or otherequity is a key issue,” he said. “Cash is still king. It is very important that the annual bonus isflexible and linked to performance criteria.” Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
