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

are these any good? like purchasing via Costco because I can get the 2nd year free warranty with the citi card.
also, do desktops come with SSD?

Will let the techies comment on the actual computer but I believe you get a 2nd year from the manufacturer (all computers computers from Costco get that) and a 3rd year from Citi.

Does anyone know the recommended specs for a desktop that will mainly be running QuickBooks, MS Office, and Chrome? Looking for something sturdy and dependable.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Looking for a new desktop for use with sketchup and quick books. On my second computer in the past 5 yrs that has run out of memory and Iím tired of scrambling to delete stuff so that I can download an email or save a file.
Any tips on what to look out for or what to avoid is appreciated!
