haswell is 4th generation as as a 4 digit code after the i7...like 4790 or 4770...
5th generation systems are still hard to come by at a good price as they were just released.
Thank you for that explanation.

Yes, will get a desktop , as you can add extras later... Laptop is a no go for this.

Will decide what will get based on the $$ that i have to spend and hope to see some sale soon. This will be a system only to run the cams and the blue iris soft.

Thanks for all the advice.

Found this on craiglist:
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/sys/5190183989.html
Dell optiplex 9020 intel core i7-4790 quad-core 3.60ghz mini tower pc with 8gb RAM ,1TB HDD. Microsoft windows 7
$400 or best offer, then only think is i have to drive 1.5 hours to get it :cool: , but if maybe price lower to 300,is worth it.
This should be good too?

It's a good deal if it has warranty left... Ask for the serial number...

Ya i does not say best offer, but you know how it is on craiglist...everything has a price :loyal:
So i told $300 ,hope that he/she bites , but need to drive 1.5,2 hours to get it,and i think is all worth it.

Now if i get the serial is there a url where you can check how much warranty is left? and is that transferable? from original buyer to next buyer?

Thanks,

The T processor is much weaker than the standard i5/i7....those go on sale at the outlet for 300-350 all the time...the biggest problem with the micro is that they dont have room for additional drives inside...only a single 2.5mm drive.

The desktop on craiglist was no go,i guess they sold it.

Found this on ebay:
Dell Optiplex 9020 | Core i5-3 3.2 GHz | 1 TB HD | 8 GB RAM | No OS
http://www.ebay.com/itm/191675554862?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT
but i don't see any info in what cpu i5-xxxx it has.
that is actually a 3010 3rd gen with no operating system or warranty.
There is a sale at the dell outlet now on the 9020's where you can get an i5-4790 for under 400 or an i7-4790 for 519...use coupon code OPTIPLEX35%

Ok, i see...now i know the difference.

Purchased the one above from the picture. Now when they say 500gb solid state hybrid drive , what they mean? as it look that solid state drive are the newest ones.

Also i may change the memory ram from 4gb to 8 or 16 to be faster.
