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.

Price: $3982 (previously $4395)

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
