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....

Thanks.  i5 for $500. According to your criteria, not a hot deal. Am I missing something?
My criteria where?

For one with a last-gen i5, dedicated GPU, and an SSD I think it is a deal (maybe not HOT, but a good deal.)

Agree that it's a decent deal. Just annoying that it only has 2 dimms. It's supposed to be the competition of the XPS which usually has 4 dimms.

Thoughts?
It is cheap, but Acer is always cheap AND it has no SSD.

This one is already a better buy (but it is not a discount now.)

Thanks for the quick reply. Other than the SSD issue (which I do not need), are the (indecipherable) chip/memory/etc. specs up to the task, for basic family needs? No gaming. Is it really worth another $100 for my needs, to get the one you mentioned?
Thank you!

You're asking me? I think that you do need SSD...

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
