Great deals on various refurb Dell Micro Desktops. Price in title is highest priced model, but go as cheap as $250. All include keyboard and mouse. 30 day warranty by Woot, an Amazon company.

Buyer Beware- Skewed deal rating and comment misinformation likely due to being an Amazon/Woot deal.

FYI, the Dell Optiplex 9020 model is at least 4 or 5 years old. These "refurbished" machines are probably used or off leased.

Yep, DDR3, maxes out @ 16GB ram, and I'd seriously question whether they actually put a 1TB SSD in these or if it's just a regular 1TB hard drive. Still a pretty capable machine though.

Edit: here's a review from March 2015: https://www.pcmag.com/review/3313...9020-micro

So that puts it right around 4.5 years old.

Not seeing any misinformation here, and the thumbs down you're getting is likely due to the fact you didn't mention refurb in your title.

The $360 price comes with an i5-4570t which is almost 5 years old. The i3-8145u benchmarks 15% better than this. Just a FYI.

Where are you going to find a PC with similar specs for a similar price, though? I was just looking at a Dell 3060 with an i5 the other day but it was $600+. If you have tasks that are "good enough" for this unit and looking to save ~$200-250, this could fit the bill, but you're not wrong this unit is 4.5 years old.

I just searched for i3 in SD... this was posted about a month ago for an 8th gen i3 for $320, https://slickdeals.net/share/android_app/t/13353088

Although it's expired, the point is the price on this deal is too high.

Spinner drive, 8 vs. 16GB memory, full size desktop vs. micro, complete apples and oranges.

A PC's a PC, not complete apples & oranges.

If they need a micro pc that they don't want to upgrade & that's almost 5 years old then that's upto them. If they just need a recent PC that works & could be upgraded for less then that's upto them as well.

I'm just making a point that for an almost 5 year old computer, this is expensive in my own opinion. Let the people who's buying decide.

That's a disturbingly weak argument and completely inaccurate statement. I'd like to see you fit a full size desktop under my TV to use as an HTPC for instance, good luck with that. A micro PC will fit just fine. Again, apples and oranges whether you want to admit it or not.

I'm not arguing the fact that this is a 4.5 year old machine, that's a fact, but you cannot directly compare it to a full blown desktop, despite age. Like I said I was literally looking at a micro PC for a customer yesterday and the unit I saw was an 8th gen i5 at $600+. When all is said and done they'd only be saving $200ish, I'm going to try to talk them into the new unit but for their needs, they could still get away with this older one if they wanted to save the money.

You all are really underestimating the power of Intel i series CPUs. I have an old hp desktop from 2005 with a dual core Intel VIIV processor and 4gb ram that can run a Minecraft server and 7 or so users with no overclocking. Imagine what any i5 with an SSD and 16gb ram can do, especially with the micro form factor.

This arrogant snobbery around the PC's (relatively young) age and CPU is pure ignorance.

Good brands+good specs+good warranty+good price = good deal
