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

Re: Desktop Deals Master Thread - Dell 33% off Outlet pcs (pretty HOT!!)
« Reply #975 on: January 20, 2015, 10:33:56 AM »
use code 3C2V?F4FN73Z04 for 33% today 1/20 only on all Dell outlet stuff (refurbs etc with full 1 year warranties) http://www.dell.com/learn/us/en/22/campaigns/gdo_consumer_weekly_sale_dfh?c=us&&dgc=EM&cid=284972&lid=5444772&acd=12309159430259878. I got an XPS One 2720 all-in-one a month or so ago with a 32gb SSD plu 2gb SATA (and the Killer N wireless card) for about $1200 (2000+ at dell reg) and after upgrading the RAM to quality 16GB Cl9 (got the pair of Corsair Vengeance 8GBs for 149 on amazon) and having a service guy come and fix the fan (was getting to warm at the top for me to trust it long term, but now much cooler, guy came quick and did it in an hour), i am very happy with it.

Thanks for the quick response, have mostly been with Dell till now.  Not much multitasking (think word, pdf and a browser at the same time).

Wrong.

Intel Core i3-4350 @ 3.60GHz  - 5218

Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz - 4320.

Also the one I posted has really great motherboard that can handle 32GB RAM and is a very solid machine. It has a 3 year warranty, can handle 3 monitors without even adding a graphics card. You can add 4 more drives, has built in raid, dual pci e cards and many many other pros. It was built for business and made to work fast and well. The HP is much weaker, its a crappy machine disguised as a business workstation, it maxes out at 8GB ram and has a sub par motherboard.
