whats your opinion on refurbished computers?
Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: DH Data Recovery on August 31, 2012, 04:58:10 PM
2 Problems.
1) Refurbished Hard drive are awful!!!!
2) you know how sometimes you have a computer thats a lemon, You keep replacing parts and it still makes issues. That can be the refurb that you buy.....

I'm a tech so its hard for me to answer, I guess its a question of money at the end of the day....
I would buy scratch and dent machines faster than refurb.

what if u have your own hard drive to stick in (sell the other on ebay or whatever) and u buy it direct from hp etc. u should be okay, no?if u keep having problems u can prob talk them into giving you a new one or something
Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: DH Data Recovery on August 31, 2012, 05:12:58 PM
you should be fine.

I highly doubt you will be able to get them to replace a refurb machine. They sell it cheaply for a reason.

Looking for a desktop mainly to be used for browsing the web and maybe to save a few files/programs but no heavy usage other than internet.
Speed is of essence.
Would appreciate any recommendations.

Budget???
Obviously I'm looking for a deal, as the title of this thread denotes ;)
Speed is a must so I guess the cheapest available for my simple needs which are the highest possible speed for internet usage (including many open tabs on various browsers).

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?

not really, you can get cheaper and it will work fine for internet. this is a really fast all around computer that should server all ypur needs. this would even work fast for graphics!

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.

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

Dell has 25% off all outlet laptops and desktops. You can find some nice deals there. They give you the same 1yr warranty that you get when purchasing new.
I recommend buying either the Outlet New or Scratch & Dent options and to stay away from refurbished they tend to have mnore issues.

I'm looking at the specs, but while I once knew what to look for, that is no longer the case.  I'm looking for a home-based machine that can handle multiple programs running including something heavier, like Publisher or similar Adobe program.  Otherwise, will use for net and word processing.  Don't need a monitor.

What specs matter?  Thanks much.

When I order for myself or clients, I would recommend checking the Dell Business Outlet Site. I would look specifically at the dell Optiplex Systems, these come with a 3yr warranty. although the business machines generally come with smaller hard drive you can still find great deals here and you get the extra security of the additinal warranty.
Here's the link to the dell business site Optiplex systems.

I'm looking for a new desktop for work.  I need 4GB RAM and windows 7 32-bit.  Hard drive space isnt really an issue.  I would like 2 VGA ports, but thats not a big deal.   Anyone know where I can find something like this for a price around $500 or less?
Thanks

This has been the regular price for the optiplex pretty much since it came out so it's not an amazing deal, that being said the optiplex machines are generally considered solid business machines backed by a fantastic dell business 3 year warranty.
If you like the specs and they are within your budget - go for it

Desktop are very dif than laptops - desktop is all components put together in a case - none of the internal components are made by acer. Laptops on the other hand - if the build quality isn't right - other parts will break and hinges, chasis, power etc will effect the rest of the laptop

The rating is for the machine at its original price of $950. The reason why it feels slow is because the hard drive is a 5400rpm drive. If you aren't afraid and are a bit techy replace the drive with a SSD Drive and it will fly!

Just enrolled in the Dell Twitter deal.  Are there any good desktop deals with dual monitors and Windows Pro?  Basic specs would suffice.  Thanks!

Is this a better deal then the $349 that u posted from best buy? I purchased a 20 inch screen with that deal for $79 my total cost b4 tax was $409.
So is it worth $140 more?
The pros for me in the dell 3 year warranty, windows 7 pro.

I am looking for a deal on a dell that costs around 650 (so I can use the 650 in gift cards I bought on friday - thanks to dan) at Dell.

I either wants an i5 with a nice 27 inch monitor or an i7 with no monitor.  At least 8GB ram also.

How do you figure
Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: Jay the PRESIDENT on February 11, 2013, 01:37:55 PM
a "good" deal on desktop (Lenovo H430 Desktop): $275+$200 (Screen, keyboard, mouse, speakers)= around $475 
2nd generation- Intel® Core™ i3 2130 3.4GHz 3MB Cache Processor
4GB DDR3 1333 MHz Memory
1TB SATA Hard Drive

laptop deal that ran concurrent with desktop deal (Lenovo IdeaPad U510): $475
3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5-3317U processor;
6GB DDR3 1600Mhz Memory
750GB 5400RPM Hard Drive plus 24GB Solid State Drive

This obviously is not an ideal comparison but...

Someone asked me about this touchscreen:

http://www.staples.com/Acer-Aspire-AZS600-UR308-23-inch-Touch-Screen-All-in-One-Computer/product_131075

I thought that he could do much better for that price but after  I researched I realized that touchscreens are pretty expensive

I figured that if there is a better deal out there you would eventually post it. ;)

I don't think he would go up to $1,099 (plus tax in NY).

BTW, what is your general opinion about windows touchscreens?
Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: DH Data Recovery on May 09, 2013, 02:56:46 PM
Well that one is 23" the other is 27" so big dif in size as well.

Unless used in a retail environment I don't get the idea of a desktop touchscreen. From where I sit at my desk it would be really inconvenient if I would reach out to touch the screen - doesn't seem natural and the 27" screen would have to be right on my face. I don't see it being practical at all.

Is that the newest XPS with the newest 17 processor?
Doesn't let me take off screen.
Any way to get this with Windows 7?

i7 4th gen processor 8gb ram 1tb hard drive 1gb graphics

They don't come with win 7, but it can be installed if you try.

Here are the specs.

Is it as easy to add RAM to a desktop as it is to a laptop?

Practically, when buying a DT, is there more significance to the amount of RAM it comes with than with a LT, or same difference?

Is the 4th gen Intel processor on the XPS posted above worth the extra ~ $90?

Also how does XPS 8700 compare to Pavilion HPE h8-1360t?

I am new to the forums and saw this site had some deals on PC's. I missed those but found this thread in the forums so thought I might post here. I am a student looking for a desktop and since I do play some games I am looking for some higher specs. Dell is having $200 egift for certain PC purchases for students and was thinking of getting one of their machines -
XPS 8700, Windows 8
4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-4770 processor (8M Cache, up to 3.9 GHz)
8GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz - 2 DIMMs
AMD Radeon™ HD 7570 1GB GDDR5
1TB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive 6.0 Gb/s (sorry left that out in original draft)

for $800 (and I would get $200 gift certificate).
Is this good deal or should I wait a bit for something better?

Quote
Since I've never done this before and tend to stay away from Dell deals, does this mean that essentially it would be $600 OOP (spend $600 for GCs, get $100 bonus GCs which would cover the cost of the computer + tax)?

Thanks!

Yeah it's a really annoying process but worth it since you're saving $50+. You need to buy two 300 GCs, fuse the two giftcards into one and then talk to customer support to buy your computer with one giftcard and two promo codes (you can only have three forms of payment max). Takes a while if you've never purchased from a giftcard from Dell before because they require you to verify your identity.

Buy two $300 GC, get two $50 bonus.

Consolidate the two $300 GC online into $600.
Call Dell or chat to place the order with $600 GC and $50 promo.
You will have a remaining $50 promo, you can't stack promos GC together on a single order.

In a solid laptop like the xps 8700 , i7, 8GB RAM, or a similar equivalent model,
How much difference would there be between a  NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M -2GB, and a AMD Radeon HD 7570 - 1GB , for photo processing?
Significant, or negligible?

From your description,  it sounds as if they were supposed to cancel the order,  but didn't.   Not that they shipped a cancelled order.  Either way, I don't see why they would let you keep it.

What do you recommend for a desktop for a person using it for graphic design. Do I need a better graphics card?

An Inspiron is much cheaper than let's say the xps model which has the imbedded graphics card. Is it hard or expensive to install card afterwards? the price dif between the 2models for desktop is 449 vs 699
Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: DH Data Recovery on November 28, 2013, 11:51:34 PM
Not expensive to change later but generally speaking the xps is a better machine. Obviously it all depends on your budget but if you're doing heavy graphics get a solid processor.

XPS 8700SE is $1,099 with a 4th gen Core i7/1.5GB Geforce 660/16GB RAM/2TB+32GB SSD.
Anything better out there?

Not a great deal. That system was recently available for 925 or 950.

The Geforce 660 is basically the highest I'd go with the XPS, btw. Its power supply can't handle much more.

Same Processor, 1gb GPU which is not that much of a difference considering the 1.5 isn't that hi-end either.

Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: DH Data Recovery on December 04, 2013, 12:11:35 AM
I'm a big proponent of buying base system and adding as needed. For example the Dell XPS 8700 (that's now $720) that was available earlier this week for $620 - upgrade to max Ram + 128GB SSD and you're good to go. (I can still get them for that price if you need one).
Same with Optiplex 7010 - was available for $599 with i7 - add max ram (32GB) + SSD and you're in business for much cheaper than $1000
Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: Chaikel on December 04, 2013, 05:39:12 AM
And even if you've never been under the hood of a desktop, adding RAM is very easy to do. SSD a little more complicated, but by much

I have been looking around lately as well roughly in that price range.
What bothered me about this computer was, that although the processor is a i5 its a slower i5 than what you will get in similar priced desktops. If you don't need the power than based on what I found this is a ok deal compared to other all- in- ones.

I'm sure DH can you further help you with this.

Not $629, but $699 isn't bad either (Plus I think you can get a 10% discount with a .edu email address).

For some reason the link keeps on expiring.

Just do a Google search for "Inspiron 660S" and under "Shop for Inspiron 660S" click on the Dell.Com option that shows $499.

Was gonna jump on the Dell deal last week, after all, for what it is, it was a great discount. However, once everything calmed down, I started thinking that I might be "buying a Ferrari for city driving".
(I'm not a big techie so CMIIW) 95% of the use I give my computer is multiple browsers and multiple tabs open within each browser.
There are file downloads/uploads but almost never heavy ones.
Will a monster processor like i7 make any difference in my day-to-day usage or should I be looking at other specs to boost the speed for my specific needs? If yes to the latter, what should I focus on? Can anyone recommend a good deal with those specs?
TIA!

There are file downloads/uploads but almost never heavy ones.
Will a monster processor like i7 make any difference in my day-to-day usage or should I be looking at other specs to boost the speed for my specific needs? If yes to the latter, what should I focus on? Can anyone recommend a good deal with those specs?
TIA!
(I'm sure many others are in the same position as me and can use the same advice).

Everything really depends on the budget.. Faster processor is a better system and will most likely be a fast system even after some time (assuming everything else works properly). When you consider how much time you spend on a computer its easy to justify spending few hundred dollars more for increased speed in everything you do..

If you're saying that faster processor will affect multiple browsers/tabs and THAT'S the spec I need to look into for the above mentioned usage than I guess that's what I'll get...
I understood that fast processor will not affect that kind of usage.
Speed after some time is also an extremely important issue.

Looking for a few desktop computers. Prefer and i5 or higher. Must be able to support dual monitors (mostly web browsing/office work) with at least one of those being an HDMI. I didn't order the Optiplex 3010 off DDMS for this very reason (it only has display port and VGA and I can't start bothering with adapters right now).

Seems like a pretty good deal. The only things I don't like about this is 1)1sale.com often takes weeks or even months to ship and 2)it doesn't say who supports the warranty.

Also true, and the line I would use years ago.  But are people really upgrading so much nowadays?  It used to be desktops could easily last 7+ years.  They seem more disposable nowadays.

It must be able to have dual screen setup. On amazon I found a picture of the back of this computer (however that one is an i3) and it showed both VGA and HDMI. It specifies here it has HDMI. I'm assuming it will have both. Please correct me if I'm wrong...

That is true. DDF isn't my posek; I can discuss the sources with you via PM or in the Ethics thread. DDF is where I find deals, and share info. I still need to try screen--if it doesn;t work, I will have no use for it and certainly send it back.

That has never been a problem for me. They are lining up. Lol. Technology is a nice hobby for me, and is also used for small businesses (sole proprietorships--lol) on the side. This leads me to my train of thought before I went to a DO. I was interested to see if DDFers would be socially inept, and this is why they needed to 'socialize' in JS on DDF ( as an aside, a thread i am never in), or they would be spur cool as they travel to the coolest places in the world. As it works with everything in life, there was a nice mix, but there were nice guys I was actually able to schmooze and chill with

Good Question!

I'm gonna assume Home Premium, I figure if it were the more expensive version like pro, they would probably list it.
I just chatted with staples online, they said its Home Premium, which makes sense. It doesnt really make a difference to me because I have a disc for Professional, but it would have been easier if it came with it instead of me having to install it.

If you don't need touchscreen I would look in Dell Business Outlet for the Optiplex 9020. It's a great system and comes standard with 3 year warranty even on the refurbs. You should def find something there with an i7 for under $850

What kind of interface would I need, given the age of my computer? SATA III?  The installed drive is SATA 3gb/s so that should work right?  Does the SSD use the same power and data cables as the sata II hDD?

Personally I favor the i5 over the i3. I have both and I do think you will see significant differences. Unless of course you plan on just using it for light web browsing/simple spreadsheets and wordsheets in which case and i3 will be just fine. Pricewise they aren't amazing. I think stores tend to hike the prices up this time of year to make it seem as if BF/CM actually have great sales.

That's just my personal opinion...

Not cheap but for the price is it a good deal?

According to your link it is an i3 processor instead of an i5.  Also, your link shows 4gb and not 8gb.  BestBuy has the windows 7 model of your great find upthread with 8GB instead of 12GB, but everything else is the same for $529. 

If this is by chance the wrong link, I would very much like to see the i5, 8GB link for $449.  Thanks tons.

Pretty proud of myself. after talking with dell support today, seems like this code: WGMMXSN0C70WFD is still working on Dell (just tried after midnight tuesday morning ny time) for 35% off all Outlet items (mostly certified refurbs, with 1 year warranty +amex). grabbed the XPS One with all my specs for $1216 including NY tax. u can find XPS desktops here (http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineSales/Online/InventorySearch.aspx?c=us&cs=22&l=en&s=dfh&brandid=2202&fid=5991), code seems to work on all and on all laptops too (can get a nice i5-4210U Inspiron with a 17 touchscreen for about $420)... This seems relatively HOT to me. if only i had signed up for the 200 off 1000 Amex Twitter offer before it sold out...

i'm still not sure i was right on the 8GB for $300 less, will see if its really annoying to upgrade (will prob need to buy 2 8GB dimms).

as expected, here they are again, note the i5 (3rd gen) with full hd for 499 http://www.woot.com/plus/desktops-aios-2?ref=cnt_wp_1 again, most are refurbs with 90 day warranties, but some exceptions, like the nice 23-inch Dell for under 700.

"Certified Refurbished" is a machine that was returned to Dell from a
lease, or repurchased by Dell for resale, or has been returned because
more then three attempts at a field repair were ineffective. They are
brought in, repaired and tested and then sold with a warranty.

"Scratch and Dent" are units that have either been refused by the receiver
(usually because of a mistake in fulfilling an order) or were slightly
damaged during manufacturing or before packaging. They are usually NEW.

Either should be good. General rule of thumb is the older the better. Some
of the new machines aren't as good as the older ones.

i Just got my new top of the line windows 8 computer (XPS 2720), and was surprised by how slow it felt (4th gen i7, 8gb ram, 32gb ssd + 2tb 7200SATA on windows 8). slowly suffering through upgrade to 8.1, but if it isnt faster, i feel like i may go back to my Core 2 quadcore with 6GB RAM running vista business. Maybe its the McAfee in the background, but it seemed everything i loaded took enough seconds to require the circle to go round too much.

Not in my experience, but I never compared the two OSs on the same computer, so it's hard to tell.

I am looking to buy an all in one with touch screen today for the house.  I need lots of storage because we have a lot of pictures and video.  It needs to have a DVD player and a large monitor would be nice (min 21" up to 27")  If someone can recommend a good deal I would really appreciate it.

Why not downgrade to 7?
just seems ridiculous to have paid for a touchscreen and not be able to really use it.

looks like thats sold out. i find best deals on all-in-ones are either dell outlet (but need to wait for a good coupon code, make an autosearch on slickdeals to be notified) or woot if you are willing to take a refurb, i have only had good luck with refurbs in general, but make sure to use a good amex card with extra warranty. http://computers.woot.com/plus/hp-desktops-aios?ref=cnt_wp_4
Alternatively there are a few Dell/HP 23 inchers with similar specs (but with 8gb memory, which i think u need these days) from the MS store, which provides a great warranty including accidents, and they remove all the crap vfrom computer before u get it which is great. http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/list/All-in-ones-and-Desktops/categoryID.62685600

Wrong.

Intel Core i3-4350 @ 3.60GHz  - 5218

Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz - 4320.

Also the one I posted has really great motherboard that can handle 32GB RAM and is a very solid machine. It has a 3 year warranty, can handle 3 monitors without even adding a graphics card. You can add 4 more drives, has built in raid, dual pci e cards and many many other pros. It was built for business and made to work fast and well. The HP is much weaker, its a crappy machine disguised as a business workstation, it maxes out at 8GB ram and has a sub par motherboard.

Is it working well now that it was cleaned?

It takes extremely heavy use to need an i7 desktop much more important is 8gb ram and an SSD also makes a big difference (I'm not referring to laptops because they have very weak processors unless you pay a lot of money for them)

run ccleaner (http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download) it can make a huge difference (just uncheck all the browser boxes besides for the cache, and if you have anything you may need in the recycle bin uncheck that too otherwise use the defaults)

also run windows updates

there's a good chance that there's some malware also, I would run combofix from bleepingcomputer (speak to a techie first) and consider installing Norton, you can but it as an instant download on amazon for real cheap, and it could save you a new computer. there's no reason you should be having issues. I relied on MS Security Essentials for years, but stuff is getting through it lately.

Now, to get this back on topic, I need 3 good office machines, min 8 gb ram, pretty urgently. nothing fancy, just reliable and quick. I am replacing my last i5's with 4 gb ram, non expandable now, and they're not cutting it. Any leads?

you can benchmark the processors at cpubenchmark.net (http://cpubenchmark.net) it should at least be close to 5000, you can find a good i3 in that range and since it doesn't have the name i5 it will be cheaper if you think you found something you can post it and i'll try to look at it

Post by: skyguy918 on July 24, 2015, 02:17:29 PM
Anyone here do their own builds?

I have a laptop that doesn't charge sitting on my desk, which I effectively use as a desktop. I'm considering replacing it with a cheap DIY desktop and adding a big screen. This way I can also hook up the screen to my work laptop when I need to work at home.

Anyway, I've been messing around a bit, playing with PC Part Picker (http://pcpartpicker.com) and other sites. I can't decide between an i3 (probably the 4170) with an H97 mobo, or an FM2+ (probably the A8-7600) with an A78 or A88 mobo. I'm leaning toward the AMD setup because it'll get me faster RAM and actually be cheap enough to easily make up the faster RAM cost.

Also, I'm looking for a cheap case/PSU combo (can be sold separately, but looking to keep the total cost down) with an 8" or less footprint, and preferably not too noisy.

Thoughts, suggestions?

Its a decent deal if you need it, most people don't need more than a good i3 desktop (laptops are a different story) especially if you put in a SSD.

I like to use dell because that's what I work with 95% of the time so I have their windows 7 install disc and a pretty well setup image and I know all about their drivers

How come the laptop thread is blazing and this thread is stuck?...

I'm looking to get another PC in addition to my laptop (which I use as a desktop most of the time, stationary on my desk connected to big monitor).

I need an additional machine and was thinking to go for a desktop since one of them does not need to be movable.
Also, I was under the impression that:

a) Laptop/desktop with similar specs, desktop is always cheaper.
b) Desktop will take longer until it starts becoming slow/"old".
c) The fact that you don't move around the desktop makes it less prone to hard drive damage.

The above mentioned points are what's keeping me from buying another laptop and doing the same thing which I'm doing with my current laptop.

Can someone please confirm/deny the above points and if there's any pros/cons to add please mention them?

I would greatly appreciate it.

Also, I was under the impression that:

a) Laptop/desktop with similar specs, desktop is always cheaper.
b) Desktop will take longer until it starts becoming slow/"old".
c) The fact that you don't move around the desktop makes it less prone to hard drive damage.

The above mentioned points are what's keeping me from buying another laptop and doing the same thing which I'm doing with my current laptop.

Can someone please confirm/deny the above points and if there's any pros/cons to add please mention them?

I would greatly appreciate it.

A) is absolutely true, b) is one of the effects of a c) is not much of an issue especially if you put in an SSD

(Most i3 desktops are better than most i7 laptops)

Just to understand, the general concept:
Could a later generation i5 be faster than a previous generation i7?
Such as this case the i7 is 4th gen and the i5 is 6th.

There are so many variables when it comes to CPU performance, those are just 2 of many variables affecting performance.  Just to explain my point I compared 3 processor benchmarks, an i7, a celeron, and a pentium, and they all have practically the same performance http://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp[]=2221&cmp[]=860&cmp[]=672 (you need to c/p the entire url)

On a Netbook, the Pentium would outperform the Atom. ( Although I haven't seen a Pentium on a netbook recently)
Don't forget AMD did the same thing to it's Athlon brand, it used to be for high end systems, however the current Athlon II is for budget system.

Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: TorontoGuy on November 25, 2015, 09:22:51 PM

And what are the cons?
Some models have the mobile version of the processor, you have to check the processor number (eg. i5-xxxxX) and then look it up on ark.intel.com to see what version it is. Also the motherboards are less powerful. Another big issue with 2in1s is that there is less airflow - which is a very underrated problem. If you plan on using it for heavy duty work, it will not last as long as a desktop.

If you are going to use Wi-Fi make sure that it has a built in Wi-Fi card with at least 802.11 n, if you are going to use LAN (plug a wire in) good for you, it's faster.
The size of the enclosure. You will find full size towers, mini, micro and slimline, choose the one that is best for you. If you have space, the bigger the better, you will have more airflow and upgrading components in the future will be a lot easier.
HDD vs SDD. If you are looking for a computer that you will have most of your storage online, you do not need more then 250GB. That said, a SSD will give you an incomparable difference in start up speed.
Graphics. If you plan on having a dual monitor setup, you are going to need a graphics card with 2 outputs. Most modern desktop will come with 1 VGA port and 1 HDMI. Just take note of what you have before you go monitor shopping. It would be a shame to find a good deal, and then you realize you have to go find a new video card.
Software. Some computers now will ship with Microsoft Office, and it will come out cheaper then buying it separately. Never spend more because they offer you an Antivirus software! You don't need it, windows defender is by far efficient.

Just a few comments:
SSD gives a huge overall performance boost not just on startup, it also keeps the computer from slowing down after a few months.
Any desktop worth buying will have 2 graphics outputs, any of output can be converted with an adapter for a few dollars except for VGA-HDMI.
IME buying office will always be more expensive than buying it separately from b&h, Newegg, or Amazon.

In that case I would say it's fine. However of space is not an issue you should be able to find a bit more of a competitive price. If you plan on using it for anything more then the basics, I would recommend buying liquid nitrogen to keep it cool, there is basically zero airflow of cooling in these microATX enclosures.

Clean it out with a dust sprayer!! For a more long term solution you can upgrade to a liquid cooling system, unless you are a bit tech (or you trust your YouTubeAbilty) You would have to get a Tech to do the upgrade. Another easy fix is to make sure its not just shoved into a corner, make sure that the area were the fan is located, has at clearance of ar least 15cm (aprox. 6").

When buying from Dell they sometimes may give you a deal on adding a screen. However if you buy from a Retail Store such as Walmart, Staples or Costco [insert comment of Costco being wholesale here] they should have packages that include screens and sometimes even speakers.

Setting yourself up for major disaster, the larger the drive the faster they often fail. Having a large hard drive is more of a reason to back up, the size of the drive doesn't help you when it ultimately fails.

Good Deal for basic office system (once you add 4GB ..)
Any of the upgrades worth it? Does it matter which graphics card option I choose if I will be connecting 2 monitors?

Post by: DH Data Recovery on November 27, 2015, 12:08:38 PM
Don't need any additional hardware to connect 2 monitors, it only requires basic display port adapter. I wouldn't upgrade by them, its generally cheaper to add ram and ssd later.

Correct. All Dell did was create a label that had a "estimated" delivery date of 11/28 but Fedex never actually received the item.

I bought a computer from best buy one day later I saw the dell computer so I bought it, once I saw that the dell computer quote and quote shipped, I went and refused the best buy computer, now that my Dell computer isn't coming, is there a way to get back the computer from best buy after refusing the order? Can I tell them that I never refused the order? Or another idea what to say?

FEDEX answered me last week this

Your package has been loaded up in a trailer and picked up on Friday. It is currently estimated to arrive Saturday November 28, 2015. Dell shipments typically are loaded up with many packages at once to leave all at the same time from the sender's location. I apologize for any confusion. Please continue to track your package at www.fedex.com for the most updated information. I'll be glad to continue to monitor your shipment until delivery is complete.

Will the extra power mean it'll be useful for longer, or just mostly be wasted?

hey, the price though is pretty decent, no? Do you have a better proposal for an SSD?

By getting an i5 you should be able to save $100-150, the issue with ssds is that they are not commonly available built into a system especially desktops. That being said, with Windows 10 it's very easy to install it on your own, you can buy one for about $70, you don't need to be extremely tech savvy for it.

Hi - I need a new desktop as my dell aio is slow (I have re-installed refreshed it is not nogea). I will spend whatever it takes to have a computer that is fast and snappy. I do multi task and do WP, Excel, search Otzar Hachochma,  and burn DVDs. I am willing to spend a little more not to have lag constant waiting etc. etc. I usually do not do any gaming but have bought a gaming rig in the past just to have a fast and responsive computer.

Thank you

Is this good value?
It doesn't need to be a deal, Juat good value. I need a powerful system for video editing.

Dell XPS 8900 tower
Currently 979 after 100 cash back. With Windows 7.
Id add in a SSD - probably about 500 GB.

16GB, 2133MHz, DDR4
1TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745 4GB DDR3
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 + Bluetooth 4.0
Sound Card

Seems like an up to date system. You wouldn't be overpaying. I think this is about its value. In regard to the SSD, keep the HDD in there for large video files, only install the sys files and program files on the SSD.

Expect ally for video editing, it has a very solid CUDA graphics card. I'd just add an SDD and it would indeed be a powerhouse.

Nice find!

If looking nice at this I'd personally (I'm no expert by any stretch) Consider the Lenovo posted earlier at bj's. Very similar specs, a little less RAM (12 Gb) but more than enough for the vast majority of people, and although the video card technically has a smaller quantity of memory than this one, IINM the fact that it is ddr5 possibly combined with newer design more than compensates. It retails for significantly higher than the one in this machine.

AND it is $50 cheaper.

Not sure whether Lenovo vs Dell is a factor.

I got a few Lenovo's earlier in the week from Woot. It looks like they have it back this afternoon. http://computers.woot.com/offers/lenovo-m700-intel-i3-128gb-ssd-tiny-desktop-10?ref=cp_cnt_gw_dly_img
To me they looked like great machines (would love  a professional's input here). Only thing is that since they are very small 1)they can't be 'souped up' too much 2) they need good ventilation (don't shtoop it in a tight area) 3)they have to be cleaned out every few months (which is very easy).

I wouldn't count in getting a better deal at this time of year, Q3 is the best time of year to buy computers after holiday season you won't get this for less than 450 if your lucky, probably closer to 550. Adding another 4gb RAM is extremely easy.

Interesting because I had very poor experience with Lenovo's customer service (with an ideapad), and HP was much better when I used them. Any reason not to go with HP? I've been looking at the HP Envy line.

Besides, if a bunch of people recommend something, even it they say it's a mishegas, it may show something about the brand.

I personally don't like hp so much but please refer back to my previous post. I find that the more I use a brand the more I like it, we used to only use dell and I liked dell best, now we use lenovo alot and I started liking lenovo too. Go figure

love lenovo, they last, and are well built (business and home desktop line, and thinkpads). Never dealt with CS. have had mixed experiences with Dell, (indian CS) and overall 9/10 with HP.

Title: Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread
Post by: nationofsheep on November 02, 2016, 10:31:21 PM
I'm wondering how good of a deal this is:
http://www.costco.com/Lenovo-Ideacentre-710-Desktop---Intel-Core-i7---2GB-Graphics.product.100291585.html

Specs:

Intel® Core™ i7-6700 Processor 3.4GHz
32GB DDR4 RAM
1TB SATA Hard Drive + 256GB Solid State Drive
2GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960 Graphics
802.11 Wireless-AC + Bluetooth® 4.0
10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45 Connector)

$999.99 + tax @ Costco.

Uses:
- Mostly for working on browser-based document editing, WordPress publishing, generally working with 10+ tabs open and using some rather resource-hogging web applications
- Some light gaming, older games like CounterStrike: Source
- Some light photo/video editing (not much)
- Running dual 25" IPS monitors
- Heavy use, 8+ hours every day

Thoughts:
- It seems like building a rig like this would not be much cheaper, based on some builds I've done on PCPartPicker
- I value Costco's customer service/return policy
- It's on sale $150 off ($999+ tax)
- This might be overkill for what I need, but I want it to be somewhat future proof and QUICK as I work on my computer constantly.

Questions:
- Is this a good value?
- Is this overkill?
- Any experience with this particular line of Lenovo's, or Lenovo in general? Can't find many reviews on this model (710), but reviews on lower-end Lenovo models are pretty good.
- Will the included graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB) be sufficient for light gaming at good specs?
- Any other similar models you'd recommend?


Thanks!

I'm looking for a solid computer and found an HP ENVY i7 SSD see below

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-envy-desktop-intel-core-i7-16gb-memory-2tb-hard-drive-brushed-aluminum/4370600.p?skuId=4370600

Was wondering is the Dell OptiPlex Desktop Computers collection much better then this? Any why?

Bump.

PS, I know that the HP is i7 and 2 TB but some are still telling me that the Dell is a better and stronger machine...

love lenovo, they last, and are well built (business and home desktop line, and thinkpads). Never dealt with CS. have had mixed experiences with Dell, (indian CS) and overall 9/10 with HP.
but overall, among the major brands, personal preference is just that, as pointed out by @avromie7
To add to the above,  unboxed a Dell xps 8910, top of the line ( i7,  16 gb)  tonight. Got stuck on the install,  reset from the partition and got stuck on that. Installing from a boot disk now.  A 15 minute job took 6 hours and counting,  and I blame Dell.

I'm wondering how good of a deal this is:
http://www.costco.com/Lenovo-Ideacentre-710-Desktop---Intel-Core-i7---2GB-Graphics.product.100291585.html

Specs:

Intel® Core™ i7-6700 Processor 3.4GHz
32GB DDR4 RAM
1TB SATA Hard Drive + 256GB Solid State Drive
2GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960 Graphics
802.11 Wireless-AC + Bluetooth® 4.0
10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45 Connector)

$999.99 + tax @ Costco.

Uses:
- Mostly for working on browser-based document editing, WordPress publishing, generally working with 10+ tabs open and using some rather resource-hogging web applications
- Some light gaming, older games like CounterStrike: Source
- Some light photo/video editing (not much)
- Running dual 25" IPS monitors
- Heavy use, 8+ hours every day

Thoughts:
- It seems like building a rig like this would not be much cheaper, based on some builds I've done on PCPartPicker
- I value Costco's customer service/return policy
- It's on sale $150 off ($999+ tax)
- This might be overkill for what I need, but I want it to be somewhat future proof and QUICK as I work on my computer constantly.

Questions:
- Is this a good value?
- Is this overkill?
- Any experience with this particular line of Lenovo's, or Lenovo in general? Can't find many reviews on this model (710), but reviews on lower-end Lenovo models are pretty good.
- Will the included graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB) be sufficient for light gaming at good specs?
- Any other similar models you'd recommend?


Thanks!

Bump, any input on this machine?

You don't need more than 8gb ram with an i3 or maybe an i5 for a work pc. This is overkill and therefore way more expensive than your budget should be. Your budget should be $300-$500 depending on how good of a deal you find.

Will it work with multiple monitors?
Is it easy/doable to upgrade the video card later, if needed?

Especially with my kids using it. Also, It is stationary so we place it in the living room and could better monitor the kids usage.

i really need a deal on a high end all-in-one PC. Any help would be appreciated.

Edit:

Preferably a decent sized SSD (like 1tb) or an SSD and a 102TB handdrive. Dedicated graphics ok, but want newest gen i7.

At least 8gb ram ,but prefer 16gb.

touchscreen is nice, but in no way necessary.

Decent speakers a plus.

No known major overheating issues.

I think that about covers it!

No set budget, but would like to stay below $1k, really want to be able to show the client a decent "deal".

I think that the pros here will agree with me that you def don't want a AIO if u need  highend. They are extremely hard to upgrade and fix.

Updated above. Thanks!

Usage is browsing, some bookkeeping, word processing and a few other medium load programs. Nothing too crazy in terms of usage, but this person wants super fast and responsive.

This is a nice piece https://www.amazon.com/Supreme-Ideacentre-700-Multi-touch-Processors/dp/B01GX8ZPAM (there are not a lot this range AIOs at all to compare the price with, but I think that it is a very good price for what you get.

$500 is a basic desktop, you cannot get something special for the price. But may I know why you decided processor is the most important thing for what you need it?

For the specs it is pretty good deal. (it is not that much of a מציאה because it's a deal that is frequently available, although no one can assure that for the future. Also if you don't absolutely need Windows 7 I'd highly recommend against buying Windows 7 now, although you can still upgrade for free.)

It is AMD and not Intel. The A12 is - I'd say - performance wise between an i5 and an i3 (more to the i3.)

It is AMD and not Intel. The A12 is - I'd say - performance wise between an i5 and an i3 (more to the i3.)

I hear.
How would you compare this http://www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-inspiron-3650-desktop-intel-core-i3-8gb-memory-1tb-hard-drive-silver/4826902.p?skuId=4826902&ref=199&loc=je6NUbpObpQ&acampID=1&siteID=je6NUbpObpQ-k6iItVTh_pkr89W68tHDZQ

Certainly lower specs (half the RAM.) but it's new and a reputable shop.

Thanks! looks like a great option.

Was just wondering; I wanted a fast processor more than 3.5 Does that make sense? Or is i5 3.3 good enough?

Clock speed is the latest (not even the latest...) thing to look for in a processor. The old Pentium's had a higher clock speed than today's beast...

Yes, about.

But he also said this:
The difference is (though this points out the problem of answering generically such questions without pointing to specific products) that the first one is a desktop A12 vs a desktop i5, for which even last gen (6th) i5 would be a nice amount better than this A12-9800, and a last gen i3 would almost match it up.

While the 2nd one is a laptop A12 (A12-9700P) which comes very close to the last and latest gen i5.

Would love to hear some recommendations here.
We have one desktop which is used in home office and we need another computer for the kids to do school work and for my son to do online school. We don't really have a designated space for this second computer so it usually ends up on the dining room table.
Any thoughts on whether I'd do better with a "desktop replacement" laptop or with an all in one desktop that I can easily put away when not needed?
Budget is in the $600-800 range though I can probably go higher if I need to
Thanks!!

What do you think of refurbs? I need something cheap that the kids can knock around. I'd like to stay under $200 and I'm not wasting money on a new machine with a celeron so I figured I'd try my luck with a refurbished.

On that note, I don't want a ridiculously outdated refurb so I found this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883286466 for $179 AC

I7 is certainly not super cheap! What are you using it for? For most things an i3 desktop (not laptop) is great of you can get an ssd.

I really just want to get something that will load quickly and be able to handle multiple spreadsheets, and multiple open internet tabs and YouTube in the background. I figured a cheap way to get i7 was a desktop but if an i5 desktop w sad would be fast then great

"Small Biz Use" doesn't mean a lot...

Do you know of any specific needs? Windows Pro, Or so.

Otherwise, the refurbished above is a good deal.

I'm looking to buy a desktop for a home office. I need a computer that can handle Adobe creative cloud well, for graphics and photos. Not really sure what I should be looking for, and what to keep an eye out on black friday for. I may be able to get a student discount. I'm a windows user, but would be willing to consider mac if it's a much much better option and not a fortune.
Any ideas?
Thank you!

Is the first desktop PSU considered low at this price, should I consider the second one? (Need a desktop for video and photo editing and graphic design)

Looking to buy a New Desktop PC With these specs:
(Newer?) i5 or i7 (Or Maybe a AMD Ryzen Equivalent?)
8Gb+ Ram
SSD+HDD (Don't really need a big SSD as all i need it for is my OS and Programs but it would be nice to have 128GB or maybe even 256Gb. As for the HDD i would like it to be around 1Tb.)
Windows 7 (This is a big one as i am having difficulty finding a newer PC with Windows 7 as most PC i saw come with windows 10.)

Looking to spend 600$-750$ but willing to spend up to 1000$ if necessary.

Any Advice would be appreciated.

Windows 7 won't be supported from Jan 14 2020.
Also you can't really find new computers with Windows 7, maybe newish like 6th gen. But not newer.

I Understand that but I'd still prefer Windows 7.

So what would be my best course of action? buy a new one with windows 10 and get my local tech store to install windows 7? Or are the 6gen processors good enough?

Anything newer than a 6th gen isn't supported for security updates with Windows 7.
Even with 7th or 8th you will have to do some tinkering to get it right, even then usually works only with 7 professional.

So my best bet would be (if i need Windows 7) to buy a 6th gen? Any recommendations on such a PC?

If you want windows 7 best bet is 6th gen intel.
I can't recommend a good pc with that.
But check tigerdirect.com you should be able to find there.

The major con any 6th gen i5 or even i7 won't be as good as a 8th gen i5.

Ok, I'll check them out.
How much worse? like not worth purchasing or just "not as good" as the newest gen?
What about AMD chips do they support windows 7?

Thanx- does it make sense to buy a computer on eBay? What kind of warranty is that? And it’s refurbished. Is it such a good deal?

Bought several 90 day warranty, you cannot beat this deal for I7 and 16GB memory.
