Pros: Small & fast. Comes with Win7 Pro (NOT Win8.1). Good upgrade potential. Got it within a week of ordering. Bought it on sale, so saved some $$$.
Cons: I have to agree with Doug, it would have been nice to know exactly what came with the machine. I expected the box only, but that turned out not to be the case. Which was a nice surprise. Comes with a 275W power supply, which will probably require an upgrade sooner rather than later. My experience with Dell power supplies has not been good.
Pros: Fast. Good driver support. OEM Windows 7 with sticker, not W8 downgrade. Future upgrades should be easy, it accepts a lot of memory and discrete video card. All necessary video adapters included.
Cons: Only one HDD caddy included. Included SATA cables will not work with a 3.5" HDD, they stick out so far that they interfere with the chassis cover. You would need to get one with a 90 degree bend at the end.
This thing is just what I've been looking for!!!!!

Summary: This product is very well constructed of quality materials. I have absolutely no regrets making this purchase. I would definitely recommend making this purchase to anyone that is looking for a good quality product for a great price.
Pros: A Display port to DVI adapter came in the box as well as an DVI to VGA adapter. The two I bought are licensed for Windows 7 pro and came with OEM Windows 7 pro media. Computer has 4 dimms inside and can support 32 gb of ram (The manual listed 32gb) should I ever need it. Saved money with buying the computers from Newegg. An available 5 1/4 bay to add an additional Optical drive or a media card reader.
Cons: It would have been nice if there was a description of what came inside the box. I bought two Display-port to DVI adapters along with the two computers and it turns out I didn't need them. I can find use for the adapters elsewhere so I have no plans on returning the adapters.
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.
