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....

Is it way more than what I need for watching tv/movies, word processing, spreadsheets and citrix, and some photo editing?

Lenovo Desktop $150

$150 after coupon code USPQ1930116.

Intel Celeron
4GB RAM
500GB HDD
Windows 8.1

This is an excellent price for an entry level/internet browsing/word processing desktop. It's also extremely compact with a very small footprint.

It's not a laptop. It's a desktop. Is there a Desktop Master Thread? I tried searching, but didn't find anything....

It's perfect for word processing/internet browsing. You shouldn't have a problem with logmein.

But don't expect it to run at blazing speeds like an i7....

been trying to decide on an AIO with 27 inch screen, does it need to be better than 1080p to comfortably work on documents (zoomed at two pages side by side on screen)? thinking either this: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/HP-ENVY-Recline-TouchSmart-27-k151-Signature-Edition-All-in-One/productID.306261700 or this: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Dell-XPS-27-Signature-Edition-All-in-One/productID.306281600

dell is my preference, but do people think that the prices will go down for black friday?

Better than 1080p for documents? I don't think so.

The Hp recline is a very nice looking desktop I sold a few to a client a few months back.
