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....

Is this a good deal? Just looking for basic web browsing with video conferencing, basic MS OFFICE.
https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Desktop-i3-7100-Windows-TC-780-ACKi3/dp/B071DM6TWM/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1535494232&sr=1-3&keywords=acer+desktop
Seems like a good deal. Even though an i3 is a little bit too weak but for the price and basic use it should be pretty good.

How's this for a basic work desktop? Don't need the micro but prefer it. Need Windows Pro. I also like the 3 year dell warranty.  Could I do better?

You could and should do better.
4gb ram is a little low for these days even for basic office work.

"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!

1) This desktop has - Type 290 W APFC
https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/desktop-and-all-in-one-pcs/vostro-desktop/spd/vostro-3670-desktop/smv3670w10ph2107
2) And this has - Type 460 W APFC
https://www.officedepot.com/a/products/4848446/Dell-XPS-8930-Desktop-PC-8th/fromLocalBrowse=false

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)
