Dell drops prices on Optiplex models

Dell Computer is claiming that its direct business model has allowed the company to pass on lower component prices to customers in the form of cheaper computers, and has dropped the price of selected OptiPlex models by around 10 per cent.

The models are Dell's OptiPlex GX1 and G1 range, featuring Intel Pentium II CPUs, which are aimed at corporate and institutional users.

Sample configurations and pricing are:

OptiPlex GX1 6400L

400MHz PII, 4.3GB HDD, 64MB 100MHz ECC SDRAM, 15in monitor, integrated 3Com 10/100 network support, 4MB video memory, integrated SB-compatible sound, 3-year limited warranty.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
