    So I have the day off and decided to pull the trigger. Thank you for all of the advice.

    I'm getting the 34" curved monitor and a desktop with:

    Intel Dual Band Wireless 8265 (802.11ac) Driver

    Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8265 (802.11ac) 2x2 + Bluetooth

    256GB 2.5inch SATA Class 20 Solid State Drive

    16GB (2x8GB) 2400MHz DDR4 Memory

    Intel Core i5-7500 (QC/6MB/4T/3.4GHz/65W); supports Windows 10/Linux

    Cyberlink Media Suite Essentials for Windows 10 and DVD drive (without Media)

    Dell KM636 Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Black (English)

    No Media Card Reader

    Tray Loading Dual Layer DVD Burner

    DVD+/-RW Bezel, Small Form Factor

    Intel Integrated Graphics, Dell OptiPlex

    2nd Hard Drive: not included

    Win 10 Pro 64 English, French, Spanish

    No FGA

    ProSupport: 7x24 Technical Support, 3 Years

    ProSupport: Next Business Day Onsite, 3 Years

    Dell Limited Hardware Warranty Plus Service

    I found that when I called Dell for assistance the rep provided greater options for customization and a lower price than what was on the website (and she remarked that she was jealous of the monitor; everyone seems to love it).

      You'll have fun with that setup.  Good stuff.   You can spec out our office next

        I built an Intel NUC for my wife, mounted it on the back of the monitor.  It's a nice setup, no tower to deal with, cheaper and more flexible than an all-in-one.

        Super easy, just have to watch a few youtube videos on how to do it.  If you already have an OS to install, that's another $100 or so saved.
