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

I hear.  How long would it stay fast for the usage I described?
Also would you mind posting cheaper options for just internet usage (speedy)?
Thanks for your tips.

Got one for you

decent desktop, that can handle publisher and other heavier programs.  Don't need bells and whistles.  My 7 yr old Dell should be retired.

Worth jumping on?

Staples had a $100 off any desktop with in store coupon code! It may be worthwhile

The only interesting thing i see is the 24" screen. All optiplex computers (99% of them) have a 3 year warranty. Its nothing special but its a decent price. You can get a few models now with a $200 gift card so it kinda even them out

It also depends if you're buying for personal use or resell. If you want for personal use - you can do better at dell outlet right now - they have a 25% off coupon expires tonight - and it comes with the same 3 year warranty
