Dell Optiplex 760


$428.00 Released October, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Day-to-day operations are fairly reliable - multitasking is handled with relative ease and puts minimal strain on the system. Power consumption is excellent - uses less than 0.8 watts in sleep mode. Minimal amount of bundled software - saves users the hassle of uninstalling useless applications during initial setup.

The Cons:Unit is rather large - bulky, awkward design limits placement options and is not recommended for smaller home offices. Client system boot-up is considerably drawn out - may take up to 2 minutes on average. Graphics processing is underwhelming - picture and video content is slow to load and poorly represented.

The Dell OptiPlex 760 is one of the more expensive options in the OptiPlex line - however, that doesn't mean the product itself is pricey when compared to other computers on the market. The least expensive 760 starts at a minimal four hundred and twenty eight dollars, while the most expensive is up in the seven hundreds.
