•1TB 5400 rpm Hard Drive

New not refurb.

I don't think I can find 6th gen i5 for less, do you?

This is for wife, she doesn't need discrete video or SSD.

You are likely better off with something like this and adding an ssd.

You would be better off running a windows machine with 8gb of RAM than the 4 and 6 in your two machines. In the reviews from fenderman's asus machine, people (I did not see the product description confirm this) said there was an extra RAM slot. If that is the case, I suggest you purchase either a single 4gb module or a paired set (2 x 4gb = 8gb) for the DDR bandwidth memory increase. Don't spend more than $40-50 on a paired set if you can find a deal.

No matter how high the value of a "slick deal" is, you should consider whether you need the thing you are buying.

Extra memory is not needed and completely wasted if not used. Dual channel adds an imperceptible difference. It would be a complete waste of money on a general purpose light use machines.
The biggest boost would be an SSD. OP wants a large drive, but if he can get by with a 512, then there are some good deals...BF will likely bring more.
