Optiplex 160-good thin client machine

tbrays727, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The Optiplex 160 is a good thin client machine well suited for a number of office environments. It runs the power friendly single or dual core Intel Atom processor and Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional. It also has an option for wireless connectivity as well as the option for IT personal to enable only 2 USB ports for mouse & keyboard input only so there's less risk for end users to corrupt the OS or any settings.

  • Excerpt: This is a very good desktop i suggest for the beginners. It is very fast and the cpu hardly occupies any space. I am using it and it did not give any type of problems till now. Great one. they provide all the parts or accesories available.desktop is very convenient to use at home as well as at work because working on laptop always is not good for ur posture and eye also.

  • Excerpt: After receving a dell flatscreen free from a friend that never used it, occasionally, the screen just goes blank.Whats with that stuff? If I would have purchased it, I would have taken it back as soon as it did it which was immediately. I believe in dell products, but this one has a glitch in ot that needs attention. overall, i would not buy this monitor. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.

This is a great computer

  • Excerpt: This is a very nice computer to have .Dells are my favorite computers to operate and are very fast and efficient .This computer has a lot of memory space which is important to have for me. It also does a good job blocking pop ups and keeping the computer secured . When this computer is fully charged , the battery life last's me a good amount of time to keep up on my important thing's such as my stocks and other things I need to keep up with.

Junk..

  • Excerpt: I have had several different brands of computers. Dell by far has been the worst out of all the brands. I think they are cheaply made! My dell desktop lasted about a 2 years. With the Cd drive only working on it for about a few months. And after awhile it all of a sudden started to work again. Also my sister had purchased a dell laptop. That thing was also nothing but junk. She paid over a 1000 for it worked about 6 months and the motherboard wen out on it.

Dell Optiplex do not waste your money

9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: When I first bought this computer i thought it would be a upgrade from my HP . What a mistake first I had all types of problem just getting it to get on-line then after that it started freezing and I would have to reboot 4 or 5 times a day. I called their tech number I guess 10 times each time it was someone that I could barely understand because, of their accent therefore It would take me twice as long to have them talk me threw this or that.

Dell OptiPlex 160 Big things in a Small Package!

millerbQ, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I had high hopes of this little power-saving machine, ordering one hoping to replace approx. 110 power-hungry machines. Unfortunately, the config with 2GB and a dual-core Atom processor, running XP SP3, proved to be to slow. When running only one task at once things were OK-ish. But still noticably slower in normal office-tasks then a 2 Ghz P4 with 2 GB. It also couldn't handle video-files with high resolutions (720p and up) and bitrates without hickups.

The Little Virtual Machine

  • Excerpt: Virtualization is in, at least for the time being until come other "buzz" technology comes along to replace virtualization as the it technology of the moment; remember cloud computing? Virtualization involves more than servers, however, true virtualization includes workstations as well.  That is where small footprint machines like the Del l Optiplex FX-160 ** come into play. The 411 The Optiplex FX-160 is a small footprint desktop computer without full-sized hard drive.
