Summary: To my pleasant suprise I received this early, was expecting on a Monday but received on Friday afternoon. I was also happy that they gave me one with the wrong processor in it. It was supposed to have an I5-3550 but I received one with a I5-3570. This computer does not have enough detail in the description. I took a chance hoping it had an HDMI but it does not. It has a Dell exclusive video port that a conversion can be found online but my local radio shack didn't have.
Summary: All the Dell OptiPlex desktop computer are awesome machines . . . saying that I was quite displeased that this particular model came with only a DVD-R optical drive. User cannot burn a DVD with either data, photos or music files. I had to go out and spend another $60 for a DVD-RW drive - that's a rip off !!!
Summary: We have been slowly replacing XP machines with Windows 7 over the past year. We were using the Optiplex 790s up until December of last year. I currently have placed 4 7010s since then and have nothing bad to say about them. The hardware seems solid as did the 790s. Our whole organization is running on Dell Optiplex PCs and they've proven themselves over and over. We've always used the minitower models as opposed to the SFF, so that may attribute to their robustness.
Summary: We started pushing out Windows 7 (to replace XP) last year to our bank ( on 790 small form factor). We have had alot of power supply and motherboard issues since then. Now we are putting out 7010 Ultra Small form factor. No complaints yet! (Alot lighter as well!!
Summary: We use the 7010s for IT as well as Software Dev machines. They work great. We use i7/8g RAM. We have 4 monitors running on the machines. They hold up just fine all day. Absolutely no complaints.
