Dell OptiPlex 9010 business desktop PC review: small but powerful

Dell Optiplex

The small form factor Dell Optiplex 9010 Desktop takes up little space, packs a nice performance punch, and is very easy to repair or upgrade. If also has all the service and warranty options and legacy connectivity businesses need.

Couple that with Dell’s promise of a long product lifespan and plenty of warning for upcoming changes, and you have a powerful compact PC that won’t stress out your purchasing agent or IT personnel.

Dell refers to the small form factor 9010 as a Desktop, which it is in the older sense of the word–a PC that literally sits on top of your desk. At only 12 inches deep, by 11 inches tall, by 5 inches thick it will fit easily beside a monitor, or flipped on its side, serve as a monitor stand.

Styled in black and gray, it also looks like it belongs on your desk. Being small also makes it easy to hide away, if that’s your preference.
