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

to be continued....

Staples had a $100 off any desktop with in store coupon code! It may be worthwhile

The only interesting thing i see is the 24" screen. All optiplex computers (99% of them) have a 3 year warranty. Its nothing special but its a decent price. You can get a few models now with a $200 gift card so it kinda even them out

It also depends if you're buying for personal use or resell. If you want for personal use - you can do better at dell outlet right now - they have a 25% off coupon expires tonight - and it comes with the same 3 year warranty
