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....

Yes, it is cheaper than normal deal pricing, you'll need a מציאה.

Which one should I go with?

It'd be useful if you write what's your pros and cons for each...

If you don't necessarily want a small device, and also don't need Windows Pro, I'd say go with the Inspiron 3000 (CPU is better, has an SSD+HDD, more ports.)

It seems that the CPU in the Inspiron is actually a generation older..

Yeah, but the other one is a T model which is lower-power and I'd say it's worse than one gen before it.

Indeed, but it also uses close to double power and that makes a modest difference in the electric bill. I would probably go for the Inspiron though as well:)
