Not working now...this is the message.

Due to limited availability, this coupon is no longer active. 3rd time I have missed it. 200 use limit on code. How do I find out about this earlier?

So after spending some time... the Vostro laptops have poor reviews. The precision sff is ok depending on your need.

The T330 is great if you bump it to Xeon (IMO). The R230 is the one I can't figure out. Any home lab enthusiasts able to chime in?

No 8th gen cpu in these laptop deals. Pass! The 8th gen i5 is faster than 7th i7 so i think its a hard sell for any company to sell these older gen processors. Waiting for a 13-14 inch lappy with 8th gen cpu and backlit keyboard to hit sub $500! Missed the dell inspiron 13 7000 deal in march for $420. It would be sweet if it comes back on!

So where do you see the newest i5 is actually faster? I'm seeing the 7700hq as the true king (obviously 3x the power draw, but 15% more power, especially when sustained for long periods. The 8250 cant sustain the boost

Looks like quad-core e3 is the best you can do in the r230. I'd love to have a rack mount instead of the t430 that i picked up. I have it rack-mounted anyway but it's 5U instead of 2U.
What are you looking for? My T430 has a 10c/20ht e5-2630v4 so the r230 isn't in the same class at all. 230 basically looks like a small 1U "desktop" replacement which is nice to keep it organized in a rack.

I'd look at the 440 since it's dual-socket which leaves you easy room to upgrade later. Even the 330 is 1-socket.
I'm not impressed with the new Bronze/Silver/Gold Core:Frequency at all though. And the cache is really low. Silver 4114 doesn't look like an upgrade at all from my e5-2630v4

Home lab nonsense. Plex, general media streaming, file backups, +/- NAS, and then Blue Iris with ~6 cameras. I get that a NUC could do some or most of this also, but would rather have a more robust system that I could grow into

As far as Plex goes here is their guidance: https://support.plex.tv/articles/...my-server/
Basically 2000 passmark score per 1080 10Mbps concurrent stream. Google passmark scores for the cpu at your price point. I transcode all my BD rips to h265 and direct play to my shieldtv so I can't really say how much CPU would be decent on the R230 besides their guidance.
I do alot of Hyper-V virtualization and have about 12 machines in a virtual domain going pretty consistently. The cpu usage is pretty low overall so Plex running on the server doesn't have that big of an effect. I have a raid 10 setup of 4x2TB SAS drives that are dedicated to Vms and storage related to VMs. I run the Plex library off its own dedicated 6TB Sata drive that I am about to add another 6TB to in a raid mirror.
I'd look more at the storage stuff like the NX430 since you seem more storage focused. I personally am looking into JBOD chassis since I want to run Windows Storage Spaces.
I'm not really seeing anything to jump on but I was at work earlier and didn't look at everything.
