Summary: I was expecting the standard size box, but for the price and features I can live with the slimmer profile and the vertical dvdrw drive. Can only compare to my old Dell running XP PRO. This unit arrived in good condition, ready to be updated and loaded with software. Probably the easiest install I've been through. Not a bunch of bloatware loaded on to it.
Excerpt: I received my new Dell this past February. It came exactly when it was supposed to, which was nice. There were really not a lot of insturctions though and some of the cords were unfamiliar to me. I had to call in to Dell to understand how to actually get the monitor configured and plugged in correctly to work. But, they were helpful, I must admit. I work from home and find the computer easy to use.
Excerpt: I recently upgraded some of our computers at work to Dell Optiplex 760 systems. I chose the small form factor design so as to limit the amount of space the units take up on desks. A few months down the line I am impressed by the performance of these machines, as there have been relatively few issues, although, notably, some rather serious and immediate issues with machines that had only just been received.
