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....

Ha ha! I didn't mean Dell as company is better, I meant that the XPS is a more premium product line in Dell than that HP is in HP's lineup.

So in short I should go for the HP slim ? (Slim is Deff a plus for me )
Would you be able to rate this HP deal from 1-10, in terms of value for money, 10 being the best value for money ?

369.99 is this a good deal? good computer?
Maybe a good deal (but not really), certainly not a good computer.

Look for something with an SSD.

I do not think there is any very good deals/discounts now, but in general I'd say this one is a solid option.

This dell @$675 vs this hp @$520 https://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-slim-desktop-s01-pf1048xt
 You think I should go for the dell ?
(I bought the HP but it just got delivered and I can still return it. )
The returning part I can't really decide on, but the dell is certainly substantially better.
