Dell OptiPlex 760 small form factor PC

 

This Dell desktop PC has plenty of power but a poorly organised chassis

eSATA, DisplayPort, quad-core CPU options

Tricky to replace some components

Dell's OptiPlex 760 desktop PC provides plenty of power but lacks the ease of maintenance that other small form factor PCs offer. Better graphics options would improve its performance.

Dell OptiPlex 760 review

 

Dell's OptiPlex 760 is a small form factor desktop PC aimed at business users. It has limited expansion options but won't take up too much desk space. This PC provides plenty of power but maintenance is more difficult than with other small form factor...

Nice and easy

 

Not bad for someone who just uses the net and plays games. With all that it has, I could not put one together for this price.

I found this to be a easy set-up and no problems installing 7 pro. Connecting, to the internet(make sure you install the drivers from the disc for internet connection) or anything. Can't say anything negative about the size of the hard drive.

Wish it had 1 additional drive slot. No problem with all the external drives. As someone else said the HDMI problem can be solved easy-peezy...lol. Wish it had more ram, 8 gigs would speed things up

Better than upgrading XP

 

I have setup at least 10 of these systems for folks that are simple users of the computer. All have come in working condition and the oldest is now maybe 10 months old and no failures as yet. I assume the hard drive will be the first to go and a 120 GB...

For those that want to upgrade their XP machine, in general they don't have enough memory nor can they have it added, most times limited to 2GB or less, plus they are single processing processors not dual core which is what you need as a minimum for...

For the price it's tough to give it cons. They generally put 4 GB or ram but install windows 7 32 bit, don't quite understand why unless the 64 bit uses more resources and they are trying to maximize the performance on these machines. 32 Bit is fine...

Plug and Play

 

Although this PC was sold as refurbished, it looked like a new unit. I understood that it could have scratches or minor blemishes, but none of these were evident on the one I received. Looks like I just got it from Dell.

Ultra small form factor but powerful. Because this is an MS Authorized refurbished unit, it plugged and played. No worries about whether the CMOS battery was good or whether the unit would last a day or two. With 1 year parts and labor warranty, I look...

None at this time.
