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

For Win &, no bargains.  New ones with decent specs are less.  Thanks.

One last Q.  How important is i7 over i5?

For biz machines I usually go Dell Optiplex or Lenovo Think Centre. What''s the budget you had in mind?

For i3 you shouldn't have any difficulty finding something, You can probably even find an i5 for a little more than that.

I am looking for an i5@3.4 GHZ (recommended specs from software provider) desktop for business office use.  Looking in Del outlet after coupon code they are approx $700 for an Optiplex 9020.  Is that a decent price?

I dont think all in ones are ever worth the price, but that's just my personal opinion
