I was trying to find a desktop computer to replace my ~2014/2015 model so I can use my 2k monitor in my office. This came up in my search on OfficeDepot. From what I can tell, this same model was a FP deal back in March for slightly more (https://slickdeals.net/f/14908247-ideacentre-5-amd-desktop-tower-amd-ryzen-7-4700g-16-gb-ddr4-3200mhz-567).

I'm not sure how well this price has aged but I thought I'd post it up and see what others think. Let me know if I'm missing anything.

https://www.officedepot.com/a/pro...0Q3-Tower/ Now $569.99

EDIT: The previous deal looks like it had a mouse and keyboard so that is something to consider when comparing the prices. I can't tell for sure but I think this new deal comes with a keyboard.

EDIT 2: There are some coupons for a free item with a minimum purchase. I opted for a personal humidifier that has a list price of $39.99.

If this had display port or hdmi 2.0 I would be all over it. I need it to do 4k@60hz.

This only has one HDMI port. It also looks like it has a D-SUB, which isn't good for anything more than 1080p. And it's not mentioned in the specs, so who knows if the picture is correct. I didn't see anything stating a max resolution and frame rate of the HDMI port. If you decide the video options work for you then it might be a good deal. But if you're like me and live and die by dual monitors, this doesn't seem like a good deal.

These are good points to consider for many. I have dual monitors when in office and when I work from home with my work laptop screen as a tertiary/auxiliary screen. I have a separate study/office that I want to hook up my 32 inch 1440p monitor in and only need the one screen so this seems pretty fitting for my use case.

That's a good call out as well. I did see this one has a single stick of 16gb, but I can't seem to find if the deal I posted is one stick or dual channel 8gb. Also, the extra storage is helpful. Would you, or anyone else reading, know if the one you linked would support a Samsung 870 EVO (SATA connection)? I already have that in my old desktop.

absolutely no reason for this system to be any thing larger than half the volume of its case.
all seriousness, you can find this very same configuration minus the DVD drive on their laptop (i am typing on a T14G1 that has 4750G), why can they reuse the same M/B and package the entire system to a much smaller case?

Is the power supply in this sufficient for something like an RTX3060?

Theres no reason they can't.

Probably not enough market to make it worth doing as a product and/or the costs wouldn't be good.
Laptop parts are designed around the limited space and limited cooling capability. It might be more expensive to make the more customized laptop designs versus the commodity desktop parts. And with laptops cooling is limited so you can't handle as much heat and that limits the parts you can use.

I think that the all-in-one design desktop systems may use laptop design parts. Not sure there.
And there are various mini footprint desktops out there too. And I mean this thing isn't exactly giant its only like 5" wide x 11" x 13".

I used to live and die by trio monitors until it messed up my neck. Can consider one big 42"+ monitor or a large TV that supports HDMI 2.0 and use software (e.g. WinKey+Left/Right) to lock the window to a grid. I recommend WinSplit revolution if you'd like to use the numerical keypad as shortcuts.

I remember buying an HP with Ryzen 4700 onboard graphics and it's also 1VGA+1HDMI at the back (probably the standard design) and returned it because there's no properly working Ubuntu drivers for it at the time.

I'm with you on this, also a dual monitor guy, but hard to find desktops with dual hdmi in this price range
