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

I got this, it's an M2 SSD, I paid $60 for a 16gb ram and added it instead of the 4gb one, so now I have 24gb ram total
M2 is just the form factor of the SSD. SATA is the type of SSD. You could have a SATA SSD in an M2 form factor although it's less common. Usually M2 SSDs are NVME which are typically faster than SATA but the form factor (2.5 inch vs M2) doesn't determine the type of SSD (SATA vs NVME). Although I don't think they have NVME type SSDs in a 2.5 inch form factor

Not a cross post (Looking for a desktop too)
I need a pretty basic computer that is fast for regular web use and Microsoft apps.
Does anyone have advice as to what i should get? Including screens, keyboards etc. Would ideally like to spend under $500

there's an additional bay, get them to send you a 1tb drive
They didnt want to send me a hard drive but they gave me $125 gift card... Their dell 1 tb hard drives on their website go for $230, can I buy a cheaper one somewhere else? Will a different brand be compatible with this Dell computer?
Thanks in advance
