Bought a Dell from yesterday's deal (Scratch/Dent). Is this a better deal? It looks that way but expert opinions would be greatly appreciated:

Dell Inspiron 3847, 4th-gen i5, 12 GB Ram (8+4), 2TB HDD, no card reader (I think), Win 8.1

$377 before taxes.

Should I cancel that and go for the Asus, or the Dell is better? Thanks ahead

This was $430 yesterday with a ssd drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6883101216

There isn't much difference between any of the deals. It's up to you. I think this Asus computer actually has DDR3L memory not DDR3. When someone receives it maybe they will post what the system information specs show.

I''m interested in what the Dell 3650 will cost when The US starts selling it. It's the newer model of what you just bought: http://www.dell.com/jp/p/inspiron...desktop/pd

Thanks adbeef. I'll just leave it then instead of calling Dell to cancel the order and re-purchase with Amazon. Processor is older but for what we need (very vanilla house-hold usage with some light photoshopping), that Dell should be enough.

Thanks again

Just one more thought for you for future computer purchases, definitely don't be afraid of a previous generation processor in desktop computers, especially if the price is right. The gains from one generation to the next is rather small (and getting smaller) so I'd look at the price savings first and foremost so you are doing the right thing by sticking with the cheaper model from dell (though with taxes you may not be, take that into consideration). The only reason to want the newest CPU is if you're getting a new laptop and even then that's just for a slightly better battery life (5%-10% max).

100% agree. For raw CPU performance, the gain for Intel CPUs after 2nd gen is not much. Intel has been focusing on energy efficiency and graphics rather than top performance. Neither of which matter much on desktops. Intel has been aiming for the laptop and mobile market.

It should be noted that while the CPUs themselves haven't seen substantial gains in recent generations, the associated video chipsets have seen nice bumps in performance each time.

in other words, time to check out AMD?

I don't really like the idea of paying for better integrated graphics and efficiency in a desktop.

can these integrated chips handle adobe and autocad yet?

This seems like it has good specs. Do you guys think throwing in a decent gpu would make sense and turn this into a gaming rig? I'm just curious.

I have built a ton of computers in my time, for a brand new machine with a brand new processor, this deal is not bad. It could be a little bit better, such as a dedicated GPU but it would require a PS upgrade too from ASUS. Also a SSD C drive would be better, anyone know if the HD is a hybrid or a straight platter?

Yeah something like a geforce 750 ti would work(They are pretty good). Anything better i think needs a new power supply

Almost 100% of the time, if they don't advertise a drive as hybrid, then it's just going to be a standard drive. This one is listed as 7200RPM, so at least it's not slow as dirt. Either way, I'd invest a little more money in an SSD. Anyone that has ever used an SSD will agree that the speed difference is insane since the hardware is almost always the bottleneck on a system (unless you're gaming).

Can this get a reasonable upgrade on the video card? Any suggestions on the best deal for around 150? Thanks!
