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....

This:

HP Pavilion Desktop Computer, Intel Core i7-7700, 12GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, Windows 10 (570-p030, Black) ($589.99)



I was told that I'm much better off with an SSD. Is that correct? Should I wait until a deal on something that has an SSD turns up?

It's dead now anyway but yes if you have the time it would be very worthwhile to wait and see what comes up over the next few weeks
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Can I connect 2 screens if it only has HDMI port?
It has HDMI and VGA
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
