Review: Dell OptiPlex 790 desktop


A good business system, which should be easy for IT administrators to secure through the comprehensive BIOS options, although some like CompuTrace have cost associated with them. The performance of the latest Intel Core i-series processors gives a...

While it looks like a good deal; the Stuttering performance and the slow application load time and exit time show otherwise.

Decent PC except for power supplies


I bought direct from Dell.

Good basic PC, drivers are all good. Small form factor is very nice

About half of our 35 790's have had the power supply go bad. They have been replaced under warranty, but system is down for a couple of days ; No eSATA ; No USB3

Cost Effective and Powerful Desktop PC. We have deployed about 8 of these within the past 6 week to upgrade users to better hardware. Absolutely no issues whatsoever. These PCs might offer better specs than what a typical office user requires, but we...

None so far

The Little (Powerful) Machine That Can


Ah, the technology refresh. Every three or four years or so, my household PC's go through one of these. In my wife's case we replaced and older Dell laptop with something smaller and more powerful, the Dell OptiPlex 790 Ultra Small Form Factor (USFF)...

Small footprint; powerful processor; (7) USB ports

None Come to Mind

In the market for a new desktop PC and your computing needs do not stray to the exotic, the Dell OptiPlex 790 USFF should be given serious consideration.
