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....

Doesn't this seem like a better deal?

Its a decent deal if you need it, most people don't need more than a good i3 desktop (laptops are a different story) especially if you put in a SSD.

I like to use dell because that's what I work with 95% of the time so I have their windows 7 install disc and a pretty well setup image and I know all about their drivers
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Amazon has a nice deal on this ASUS i5 Desktop at $429.99

Intel Core i5-6400 Quad-Core 2.7 GHz processor (turbo to 3.3GHz) (New, just announced 6th generation Intel processor)
8GB DDR3
1TB HDD
Intel Integrated 530 HD Graphics
802.11 AC WiFi with Bluetooth 4.0
Windows 10 Operating System

The full new Skylake line of Intel processors have not been released yet, so this is a pre-order. Ships with Amazon Prime though.

My parents need a new desktop; my mom doesn't even know how to turn it on and my dad uses it for his AOL email and to read the news. Any recommendations for a reliable decent desktop that won't break the bank?
