UPDATE: deal is back! New URL: https://deals.dell.com/en-us/memb...etail/ef0v


$120 off the MSRP of $620. Dell says "low stock" AND delivery is in LATE JUNE 2022, so 30 days.

Do not buy this if you need a system soon. Otherwise, a very good deal on an extremely-fast CPU. This office PC will last 5+ years no problem for normal usage.

The i5-12400 is very comparable to the Intel i7-11700 / AMD 5600X in both single and multi-core performance. At $499, it's a steal for this kind of longevity in performance.

This desktop outputs are HDMI and DisplayPort--previous models included VGA. Be warned if you use VGA monitor, you'll need an adapter.

These PSUs are proprietary. They may or may not include a 6-pin PCIe for a GPU. I'd assume not.

I'm also 95% sure these dGPU-less configurations come with the 180W PSU; the 300W is reserved for the optional GTX 1650 Super configuration, I bet.

12th Gen Alder Lake (10nm process) CPUs are less power hungry and run cooler than your 10th Gen Comet Lake (14nm process), so that's kind of an odd comment. Longevity isn't an issue with modern CPUs and they will outlive their usefulness to you. Unless you abuse them, they will likely go to the landfill working as well as the day you bought them.

The i5-12400's power consumption in particular is not that much compared to the higher Alder Lake models. It's around the Ryzen 5 5600X or less.

The problem you'll run into is that this is not a gaming PC, not particularly upgradeable, and probably more expensive than what you need for an office PC.

in the market for a low-end computer for mostly office work, some Photoshop/Light Room (just still pictures processing) and minimal gaming (unless you count kiddo's occasional Minecraft/Roblox). Which would would hold up better in a long run, likely 5+ years - this or the HP one?

Isn't 12th generation the latest and greatest (consumer level)?

It's warm at best. Got 10th gen same unit at $300 around Xmas. And even that was at least 50 overpriced. 200 more for this isn't much of a deal to be honest. 12th gen are power hungry and run hot…so longevity who knows.
