Dell is not solely focusing on the notebook business as it unveils its Dell Optiplex 160 Desktop. Desktops are not yet passé and branded ones such as the one being catered by Dell are sure to be still in demand. And with that notion, Dell aims to deliver powerful packages as preferred by desktop users today.
These days, $500 to $1,500 will net you a desktop with a dual-core CPU and enough power to run productivity apps, view and edit vacation photos, manage MP3s and videos, and even play many of today’s games, the core activities most common to families, students, and the general purpose PC user.
At $1,000 and up, you should easily be able to perform those tasks. Spend around $500, and in most cases you’ll still be able to run common tasks without delay, although 3D gaming becomes a stretch. You will definitely find a dual-core chip in a $500 desktop but Microsoft Vista could still give you trouble.
Be sure the PC is equipped with at least 1GB of memory, and it’s a good bet that you’ll be able to smoothly run Vista. Add in a 128MB graphics card, and you’ll get the Aero effects with little to no performance loss.
So with those facts and figures, you do the math. Surely, notebooks do cost much, but invest that amount in a wiser desktop and you get a more powerful desktop solution in one.
Conservative and economical consuming desktops are being sought after by most PC enthusiasts today and apparently Dell has heeded the call. Majority of these requirements are being called upon by the commercial sector as we see the growing demand for wise consuming computers in lieu of the traditional ones which seem to be eating up a lot of energy when operated parallel to business.
The Dell OptiPlex desktops aim to cut the consumption issues by more than half of the standard consuming energy PCs today and this will certainly capture the fancy of most companies who want to bring down electricity consumption costs that they have to deal with today.
Energy consumption is a key utility expense that many companies want to answer and while the investment may sound petrifying for most, it remains that if you want to change something concurrent, you have to start by getting rid of the old PCs and get the new ones into your fold.
It is not a matter of only upgrading but also about investing wisely in your IT infrastructure. PCs serve as workstations that gather data and are point of origins in an office setting. Many companies are due for an overhaul in the IT side of things and apparently Dell offers the OptiPlex to answer all these problems, both for computer requirements and of course addressing the power consumption issues.
