Honey, Dell shrunk the business laptops! Dell is expanding its OptiPlex 3020 and 9020 lines of business desktops with new “Micro” models that measures just 7.25″ x 7″ x 1.3″ and weigh about 3 pounds.
You can easily attach these little desktops to the back of a monitor, hide them under a desk, or even stuff them in a desk drawer, I suppose.
The Dell OptiPlex 3020 Micro PC is available for $499 and up as part of a launch promotion. The starting price could go up by 35 percent at the end of September. OptiPlex 9020 Micro prices start at $729 during the same promotion.
An entry-level OptiPlex 3020 Micro features an Intel Pentium G3240T processor, 4GB of RAM, and 500GB of storage. But models with Core i3 and Core i5 Haswell chips are also available.
The OptiPlex 9020 Micro is available with an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 Haswell processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and a choice of a 500Gb hard drive or 128GB solid state drive.
All models feature Intel HD graphics, 2.5 inch drive bays, DisplayPort and VGA ports, 6 USB ports, Ethernet, and 3 year basic warranties.
Dell’s new mini-desktops aren’t exactly the first small form-factor desktop computers on the market. But they’re the smallest Dell has offered to date.
