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....

I have the Dell Optiplex 3020 in stock with Windows 7, i5 processor and 3 year warranty. PM if you're interested - I'm in Brooklyn. If that doesn't work for you I'll see what else I can find you.

I use an Optiplex 790 at work.  Are they comparable?  Please send me details/cost.  I'm sure I can always find someone to bring it down to Baltimore.  Thanks.

Staples has a $150 off $499 Coupon which can be applied to many systems. Here's an example if you want 2 really cheap desktops.

2 x Dell Inspiron 3646 - $349
Use Coupon: 62638

These are cheap low end Celeron systems but can be used to connect to TV or other simple tasks.

Add 2 of them to cart to be eligible for the coupon.
