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....

Unless you are doing real heavy work i7 desktop is overkill, most i3 desktop processors are better than most i7 laptop processors
We currently have a whole bunch of i3 desktops (not sure which models) and after a few months of use the performance leaves much to be desired.
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

8gb ram and an SSD are the way to go Better and cheaper than i7
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

+1,,, the i3s often ship with 4gb, but you need 8 for good performance
