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....

Wouldn't this be a better deal?
Probably would.

It'd be useful if you write what's your pros and cons for each...

If you don't necessarily want a small device, and also don't need Windows Pro, I'd say go with the Inspiron 3000 (CPU is better, has an SSD+HDD, more ports.)



Yeah, but the other one is a T model which is lower-power and I'd say it's worse than one gen before it.



Indeed, but it also uses close to double power and that makes a modest difference in the electric bill. I would probably go for the Inspiron though as well:)

It's to be used primerily for a POS system.

Size isn't really an issue.

Wouldn't this be a better deal?

Probably would.

Then I guess I'll go with this one.

Basic programs for a family. Requires i5, SSD, DVD drive, and a nice amount of RAM for multiple logins. I haven't seen anything less than about $700.

Very good. Thanks! What's the best way to buy from HP? Any credit card offers out there currently? Also, any thoughts re extended warranty from HP? I've been happy with Dell's extended warranty. They come to the house to fix any problem.

Thanks! Interested in the $626 model (the other one doesn't have an optical drive). 
@Yisroel Tech any thoughts?
How does it compare to the HP?

Specs are basically the same (this one has double the storage, but the one in next post for $533.10 has the same 256GB.) I'd say Dell is better than HP. And also it's not a slim form factor which (unless needed for space-saving) is better.
