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

reliable site?
Its legit. DDFers, myself included have ordered and received socks from them. Use an Amex just in case.

I am looking to buy a Desktop computer, priced at around $250-350. It can be refurbished. I am in no rush, and can wait ample time for a good deal.

Thanks in advance for your help.

It's there, and is valued at 160. I ordered already! I hope it's a good buy. It would be nice to have your confirmation though. Thanks again

In november I got that system in a slightly better processor (i7 4770) and 3 yr pro warranty for 630 and I'm very happy with it so far. If you can sell the tablet for 160, you got a great deal!

Thanks! They gave me a one year warranty, and I used an Amex, so I am covered for an additional year. I am basking in this setup in my room right now. A 32 inch free (small crack) screen from Dell, a new desktop, my HD 47 inch TV, slingbox, nice Laser printer from Newegg, Iphone, Ipod, and HP Touch pad.  :)

That is true. DDF isn't my posek; I can discuss the sources with you via PM or in the Ethics thread. DDF is where I find deals, and share info. I still need to try screen--if it doesn;t work, I will have no use for it and certainly send it back.

Check on the top of Dell page, and you will see emboldened in red, "Students get a FREE Dell tablet* with the purchase of a PC $699.99 or more". Let me now, if you can't find it. I ordered through the phone, and it worked perfectly.
