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....

Generally speaking, are the deals now just as good as Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Or does it pay to wait? Thanks
The deals are good. No one can really answer you if there might be betters.

I ordered the rukuten deal above, but now see this one coming up. Is this similar processor or much quicker? And is the ram that much better or I can just pop in more on the one I ordered? The disadvantage on this is it doesnt come with ssd. https://deals.dell.com/en-us/mpp/productdetail/3dtc?prg=1&VEN1=12839465-7183758-53840X1297210X8e6304f9095593058951d3d251a68ae2&AID=7183758&cjevent=ac7088b00e4611ea82d802df0a240611&dgc=CJ&DGSeg=DHS&cid=198375&lid=45846&acd=12309198375458460&VEN3=810405200969855994

Same processor.
Ram is less on the dell deal, and no Intel optane isn't ram. Not getting into that discussion now.
Ram is very easy to pop in.
It pretty easy to change to a SSD especially the Samsung SSDs.
