The Dell OptiPlex range of computers are aimed squarely at the business and educational markets. They’re built with reliable, fit for purpose components rather than the unproven, bleeding edge technology often found in other manufacturers models.
Dell OptiPlex 7010 – Recommended Mid Range Model @ £499 + VAT
The Dell OptiPlex 7010 Desktop PC is a step up from last years OptiPlex 790. It shares the same good looking and high quality chassis, but now features extras including a choice of Windows 7 or Windows 8, uprated USB v3 ports and faster memory architecture. Featuring Intel i5 and i7 Processors, they’re upgradeable to 16GB RAM and feature optional solid state hard disks for increased performance and reliability.
We can supply any model required but the OptiPlex 7010 specified below is what we currently recommend for new purchases and forms one of our standard stock items. It includes a generous 8 GB of RAM and a mid-range Intel processor:
- Intel® Core™ i5-3470 Processor
- Windows® 7 Professional 64 Bit or Windows® 8 Professional 64 Bit*
- 500 GB 3.5inch Serial ATA III (7.200 Rpm) Hard Disk
- 8GB DDR3-1600MHz DDR3 RAM
- DVD+/-RW Optical Drive
- Dell QuietKey USB UK Keyboard
- Dell Optical USB Mouse
- FREE 3 Year Next Business Day Dell Warranty
- FREE On Site Delivery & Physical Setup
- FREE SmartWater Anti-Theft Protection Applied
* We suggest purchasing a model to include the Windows 8 licence now, but we can optionally downgrade it to Windows 7 until your company migrates to Windows 8. We can discuss this during the purchase process.
Pre-Delivery Preparation Service @ £ Labour
Buying a good quality computer for your network is an important step, but in a business environment you’ll need to be sure that the computer you’ve bought is – as far as possible – ready to run reliably when it arrives at your site.
To that end you’ll usually need our Pre-Delivery Preparation Service, which includes further preparation at our workshop. We’ll do a full reinstallation of the operating system and drivers (in order to remove unnecessary pre installed software), ensure all recommended updates and security patches are installed, add useful software (e.g. Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash Player, 7 Zip, Java) and also (subject to available licences) install line of business applications such as Microsoft Office and security suites like AVG Internet Security. We also install remote control software so that we can provide you with remote support when required.
This is a chargeable service, so it is cost effective to order more than one PC at a time. Preparation typically takes around 2 hours.
Smart Little Guy: Computer Monitoring & Tracking Service @ £12 / Year
We’re offering our Smart Little Guy: Computer Monitoring & Tracking Service on a contract only basis. For just £12 / year (or just £30 for the lifetime of the computer), you’ll benefit from a suite of monitoring and tracking tools:
The monitoring tools proactively check workstation security, disk performance, disk health, disk space, antivirus status and more… while the tracking tools check such things as hardware specification, software and licencing state and create asset reports.
