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....

Thanks! They gave me a one year warranty, and I used an Amex, so I am covered for an additional year. I am basking in this setup in my room right now. A 32 inch free (small crack) screen from Dell, a new desktop, my HD 47 inch TV, slingbox, nice Laser printer from Newegg, Iphone, Ipod, and HP Touch pad.  :)

Nice. I'm nowhere near that. But I'm living off of my KVM switch. I switch like 50 times a day between my docked thinkpad for work and my dell for home. I am happy with the MF4890DW I got yesterday. I've already got a bit of use out of it.

That has never been a problem for me. They are lining up. Lol. Technology is a nice hobby for me, and is also used for small businesses (sole proprietorships--lol) on the side. This leads me to my train of thought before I went to a DO. I was interested to see if DDFers would be socially inept, and this is why they needed to 'socialize' in JS on DDF ( as an aside, a thread i am never in), or they would be spur cool as they travel to the coolest places in the world. As it works with everything in life, there was a nice mix, but there were nice guys I was actually able to schmooze and chill with

What's the difference between the one I bought (XPS 8700), and the one you mentioned? Which do you think is better?

The only difference I see is Windows® 7 Home Premium vs, Windows 8.1. CMIIAW

Looking for a system for a Yeshiva office. Is this a good deal?

Tremendous difference - this one has a significantly better processor for the same price.

It's only a good deal if you add the free tablet and coupons to the mix, otherwise its pretty much regular price

How does the 4790 compare to 4770? Is that upgrade worth $100?

So just to confirm, I got the better one-- the XPS 8700?

Thanks again
