Dell consolidates Commercial Desktop Portfolio with Optiplex Series

Keeping in view the changing needs of the future workforce, Dell has announced a significant refresh to its Optiplex commercial PC portfolio. The new Optiplex portfolio allows the workforce to execute and deliver quicker results, enhancing productivity by optimizing computing performance.

The OptiPlex line of PCs are secure commercial desktops available with endpoint security solutions from Dell’s own Dell Data Protection suite that include comprehensive encryption, advanced authentication, leading-edge malware protection and advanced threat protection. OptiPlex is also a manageable commercial desktop portfolio with Intel Core v Pro processor technology and Client Command Suite. All of this is backed by enterprise-class support including Dell Pro Support Plus and Configuration & Deployment Services.

The fully revamped OptiPlex portfolio will forever change perceptions about the commercial desktop with its smaller, faster and more energy-efficient Micro Form-Factor, Small Form- Factor, Mini Tower and All-in-One designs.

“We are intent on delivering the most innovative solutions to meet our customers’ most pressing needs. For this reason, we are investing in bringing new innovations to the market in the pursuit to define the future of the PC and the role it plays,” said Indrajit Belgundi, Director & General Manager, End-User Computing, Dell Inc. “The faster and smaller Optiplex series are optimized to cater to the evolving workforce, enabling them to be productive and to deliver results in a technology environment which is conducive to faster work, better decisions and comprehensive collaboration. In combination with Dell’s data security and enterprise-class support, the new Optiplex series is set to transform the way the entire workforce computes.”
With these performance gains and new features, OptiPlex desktops are playing a new role in a world that is highly mobile. For example, the portfolio includes a new collaboration and conferencing solution utilizing the OptiPlex 7040 Micro with 6th-Gen Intel Core v Pro processor technology and Intel Unite software to deliver simple, instant and secure collaboration and meeting capabilities through wireless connectivity. Now, onsite and remote employees can easily see the same content displayed in a room, transition between presenters in the room or over the phone, make annotations and transfer files instantly. No dongles or adapters are required!

The new OptiPlex portfolio offers space-saving versatility with its smaller footprint. The Mini Tower is 43-per cent smaller than the previous generation and Micro desktops can save more than 7,700 square feet of valuable work space when replacing 10,000 legacy desktops – this is important as companies are re -imagining a more collaborative and future-ready work environment. The updated portfolio leverages a new 3000/5000/7000 model numbering structure to simplify product comparison and selection for customers.
