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 8th Gen processor - Under $300 is usually a hot deal, Under $350 is decent
i5 8th Gen Processor - Under $400 is a Usually a Hot Deal
i7 8th Gen Processor - Under $600 is a Usually Hot Deal

to be continued....

Lenovo K450e 57328803
http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/redux/desktops/lenovo/k-series/k450e/

i7-4790
16 GB RAM DDR3
2TB HDD
Windows 8.1

$650 Shipped

Coupon USK450E55


I just bought it. Not customizable at all
I figured its worth attempting to downgrade to Windows 7 on my own rather than paying more... the rep told me to wait until Windows 10 upgrade I might like it. They have 30 day free exchanges (I assume customer pays shipping).
3 year warranty is $60

If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

Unless you are doing real heavy work i7 desktop is overkill, most i3 desktop processors are better than most i7 laptop processors
