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....

Bump - both in terms of price and quality, would love to hear input from members with experience. This is for a work computer, doesn't have heavy use, some online apps, plus excel/word.

hello, i need your opinion on what I just got from Dell. I believe I got a killer desktop for killer price. Before that I know some may think I am trolling cos I posted this on another post but I just got Dell to upgrade the model with far better specs and faster shipping in March vs the earlier shipping date in April. I just changed my order to the NEW XPS DESKTOP 8950 with configurations for $1300 before tax. The website price with those specs is $2300 before tax. I have a 10 years old PC and I am due for a New desktop. Honestly I don't know much about computers besides email and websites but it helps to have a strong reliable powerful future proof computer. Do you think I got the following PC for excellent price? Thanks

Is it possible that on DDF, I've found something that no one has an opinion about?

Are there better options for those specs for a better price (business PC)?

I got one, may need another one - I actually got a 15% off coupon, so it ended up being ~$550, but either way, it's cheaper than what our tech support company quoted me - same specs, G5 (vs the G6 I got), for $1k.

Thanks. I need something for office use. Including regular video conferencing.
Any recommendations?



Those are the Prime Day desktop deals https://www.amazon.com/s?bbn=565098&rh=n%3A565098%2Cp_n_specials_match%3A21213697011&dc=&qid=1657655905&rnid=21213696011&linkCode=ll2&tag=1a2b3c4d-20&linkId=b1789a4ed6bf828745918229c56f995c&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl

In order for someone to answer your question you'd need to detail which type/category/price range you're looking for.

This for $519.99 is a cheaper option for a still-very-good-specs basic computer https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09V1LKTPH/ref=cm_sw_r_as_gl_apa_gl_i_dl_H2W2HXCM1KAQ45E3M9WE?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&linkCode=ml1&tag=dbtrer6urvt6u5rey5s-20

Price up to $700-800 range. Will use mostly for browsing, and some programs.

For $700 the one on Amazon two posts above yours (then for $680, now for $709.99) is a good option.

A similar thing to that (Intel instead of AMD, and 256 SSD+2 TB HDD instead of 512 SSD) is this one for $699.99 is this one https://www.hp.com/us-en/shop/pdp/hp-pavilion-desktop-tp01-2255t-bundle-pc?source=aw&subacctid=156714&subacctname=eDealinfo+USA+Inc.&adcampaigngroup=111627&awc=7168_1658256212_2ecb42ab5d368550c8843f1cb326ed6c&jumpid=af_gen_nc_ns&utm_medium=af&utm_source=aw&utm_campaign=eDealinfo+USA+Inc.

Technically you don't "need" such a powerful one and i5/12 GB RAM should be enough (though IMHO if you're willing to spend the $200 more it's not a waste, a more powerful computer is ultimately better in the end.) you can go with this one for $499.99 (deal the last two days) which is quite decent specs for normal use https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09P1SYQMC?m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1&_encoding=UTF8&linkCode=ll1&tag=1a2b3c4d-20&linkId=f24f60ea18f2ff363f88d2d3e273b879&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl
