trying to choose between refurbished 3630 and 3640-opinions please for linux operating system

I'm looking to get one of these for home office use. Browsing, email, office programs, connecting a brother USB printer, monitor with DP or HDMI connection.

I also need wifi or be able to add wifi to it. I've seen 9th generation I7 and 10th generation i5 chips.

It sounds like either one will have more than what's needed at this time.  But that also makes it a little future proof.  The Optiplex line does fine as office workhorses.  The 3630 and 3640 are a step beyond that and also get used as small servers.

Not sure if you saw the spec sheets for the 3630 and 3640, so I attached them.  Sorry, I can't just decide which one for you as either one will do the job.
