Dell Optiplex 7050 Intel i7 Micro Desktop

Only 7 years old, young compared to other recent Woot deals.

Wouldn’t it be better to buy a no-name mini PC using a current Ryzen 5 CPU? CPU would run circles around the old core i7 and include some basic GPU functions unlike this CPU.

Pretty much. This won’t run Windows 11 either if that’s important to you.

Intel really needs a renaming strategy for processors. Most ads just say ‘i7’ without the rest that identifies the series/age. So, many will simply see ‘ooh, i7 - that’s the top of the line’ without realizing that it WAS the top of the line … 5 or 7 or 9 or 11 years ago…

If only there were SOME way to find additional information and specifications for the I7-6700T processor listed in the specs tab.

Several months ago, I bought the 7040 from Woot for same price but worse CPU (6th gen i5) and smaller disk (256GB NVMe).
Argh!
