Intel now use i9 as their top of the line model for the Intel Core series. Also your spec sheet shows the i7 processor to be 4th generation, we are currently on the 9th generation so it is behind with the times. DDR4 is the RAM used for new computers but your spec says DDR3. Based on those facts I figure the computer would cost around $350-$400 but since those figures have already been taken then I will go with $500.

Monsta's WAG cost estimates
Processor = $200
RAM = $70
SSD = $50
Operating system = $100
Rest = $50

You didn't estimate in the cost of the Monitor, it's the total system cost, not just the computer.

You can pick the same figure as somebody else if youwant to and think it's the best number.

This one is not an All-in-One.  It's a small form factor tower with a separate monitor.  Total cost is for the computer + monitor.  That is what the estimate should be for.

I thought you only bought a computer with no monitor. In that case if the monitor is 32 inch then I go for $700.

Nice work in the Supercomputer Kewpie Contest Diners!  Actual price to be revealed tomorrow.

One more time for clarification, last chance to correct your bid before the contest ends.

1- Your cost estimate should be for the TOTAL of the Computer + 32" Monitor.  A computer without a monitor is like a car without wheels  You won't get very far with it.

2-  The computer has been revealed to be a REFURBISHED model, so your Kewpie Doll Winning Window is now only $100.


If you haven't yet submitted your bid, you have until High Noon tomorrow, Alaska Time.

💻 The NEW Diner Super Computer ACTUAL COST & Kewpie Doll Winner

Sorry I'm lat for the High Noon revelation of the cost of my new machine and the Diner Kewpie Doll winner for this contest, but I was napping. lol.

OK, here you go:

Computer Cost:        $420
32" Monitor Cost:      $160
Total Cost:              $580


Winner of the Big Kewpie hands down is Knarf, who came in with an estimate of $580!  RIGHT ON THE MONEY!  :o



Lots of good guesses though, so I am giving small Kewpies to everyone who took a stab at it.  You can pick the race of your choice for your Kewpie.  lol.



More on this later, I have a call to make on my Tombstone, now arrived in from ...somewhere.

You cut & pasted the dolls into coneheads .... Nice touch.

Betcha thought we wouldn't notice. You sly dawg.

File this in the BTW folder, your contest was vague & confusing, probably rigged & the winning contestant had external celestial assistance  :icon_sunny:
