Whats a Desktop Deal:

There are many factors you need to take into account in order to make something a deal. Manufacturer, Product line, Specs and warranty are usually what to look at when figuring that out. You need to consider prices as well, sometimes you get a price so hot that it doesn't matter what company it is.

Generally speaking here are the guidelines for Intel processors:

i3 3rd Gen processor - Under $300 is usually a hot deal, Under $350 is decent
i5 3rd Gen Processor - Under $400 is a Usually a Hot Deal
i7 3rd Gen Processor - Under $600 is a Usually Hot Deal

yes
Thank you.
So just to get this straight:
This is the fastest for internet usage and if I would want something cheaper I would be compromising on speed?

I hear.  How long would it stay fast for the usage I described?
Also would you mind posting cheaper options for just internet usage (speedy)?
Thanks for your tips.

decent desktop, that can handle publisher and other heavier programs.  Don't need bells and whistles.  My 7 yr old Dell should be retired.
