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....

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

Thanks again

Same model, different (not as good) processor.

The better one, of course. I cancelled the inferior one, and ordered the one you recommended. Thanks again!

Haha. Lol. My future wife is really lucky--it's going to be quite a honeymoon. One of the Tanaim will be--access to your SSN for CC apps.  :)

How would you compare it to this Dell one that we were discussing last wee? http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?oc=fddngs104r&cs=19&c=US&l=EN&vw=list&dgc=CJ&cid=24471&lid=566643&acd=10550055-600263-

Which is better?

Okay. Thanks, so I will stick with the one I bought. If all goes well now, I shouldn't be around in these thread for at least a year it two.
