Note: Since it is using B460 Motherboard, the Rams are running at 2666 MHz which is max supported by that Chipset. Lenovo Platform Specification for this Series confirms the same.

Intel 10th Gen Processors support Ram speed up to 2933 MHz Ram but for using that you need to have a higher end Z490 series motherboard. If you use B or H series motherboard, the Ram speed will be downclocked to 2666 MHz. In this Desktop, the actual Ram speed is 2933 MHz but due to the use of B460 motherboard, it is running at 2666 MHz, maximum supported by that B460 chipset.
You really have to have realistic expectations for $400 (even on SD). A fan or two is next to no cost, and a PSU is pretty affordable as well. You are not going to get a much better machine for $400 unless you wait (and that is true for almost all technology).

Unless you specify your requirements and which deal you have missed, difficult to say if this deal is for you.

Considered this unit but will have to pass: to be fair, the unit has decent specs for $400 but I have a few concerns after reading some of the actual buyer ratings: when front USB's are in use, the sliding cover on front (exposes the USB's) will then cover up the DVD. Albeit I would rarely use the DVD, but it would still require me to unplug whatever's plugged into the USB's or remove the sliding cover altogether. Second, at 260W the power supply is minimal; if I ever wanted to upgrade the onboard graphics using the free PCI-e 3.0, I'd want/need to upgrade the PSU...another ~$40-60. Also, it appears (buyer comment) there are no case fans preinstalled, so I'd need to spend another few bucks on fans if a graphics upgrade was done. The unit just feels a little constrained unless all you plan to do is basic web surfing, schoolwork, or email.

Fully agree, which is why I began with 'to be fair, the unit has decent specs for $400' and ended with 'unless all you plan to do is basic web surfing, schoolwork, or email'.

It means your car can go 140mph but is limited to 120mph max. In other words, nothing significant for this unit.

My question is whether the 256gb SSD is big enough. If it is not, than the TigerDirect deal

https://slickdeals.net/f/14916953-lenovo-ideacentre-5i-desktop-pc-10th-gen-intel-core-i3-10100-3-6ghz-8gb-ddr4-1tb-hdd-intel-uhd-graphics-dvd-rw-802-11ac-bt-usb-c-hdmi-windows-10-330-fs

would appear to be a better value. It appears to be the same computer. And If you are going to replace the SSD anyway, possibly a better way to go

Oops. I missed that the Tigerdirect has a lower end processor. It's the 10100 not the 10400 in this deal
