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....

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.
Thank you! Bought.

Any good deals for all-in-one computer these days? Run a small business from home and use a few heavier programs like photoshop etc. I also need quite a bit of storage. Currently breaking 450 gb of storage on current device.

Thinking something like i5 with at least 8gb ram, at least 1tb of HDD, SDD would be a nice add on. Any leads?

Any good deals for an i5 or above with 128 or 256 ssd? Under 650.00 would be great.

No good deals due to covid-19 and windows 7 EOL. But you should be able to find those 2 options in a computer under $650 on dell.com or hp.com

Not a deal, but an ok price for now. Right before 2020 these were going for about $500

@Yisroel Tech are there any desktop deals out there?

Call me old school but I still prefer a desktop for my..welll..umm...desk  :D
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Hey, why single me out?...  ;) :P

Not a lot of deals, but there are some. Which price/type of machine are you looking for?

Maybe go for this https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/cty/pdp/spd/vostro-3471-desktop/smv3471w10ph207r5?cjevent=d8beff819b7311ea807008e30a240613&gacd=9646510-23736410-5750457-266322766-127797014&dgc=af&VEN1=12383016-600263-&dclid=CIrp07ecxekCFfbPyAode1cAWw#features_section for $549. Not cheap, but decent and decent specs.
