Many of Dell’s OptiPlex desktop computers are now available in different sizes. Consumers don’t have to be stuck with giant heavy towers that take up a lot of floor or desk space. If you have been eyeing the Dell OptiPlex 3050 series, for instance, you’ll find that it is now available as a small form factor unit as well as a micro tower.
The price doesn’t vary too much, regardless of which size you choose. What matters more than that is what kind of hardware you want it configured with. How much memory do you need? How powerful should your processor be? What about graphics? Dell makes it easy to configure all of their PCs – especially desktops.
The idea behind these desktops is to offer a versatile solution that can help businesses evolve their needs with the right services and technologies. That said, they can be easily used as personal computers as well. No matter what you want to use your 3050 for, you can expect reliable performance without any compromises. It will also be easy to access the inside should you need to switch out hardware or add more, thanks to in-band management and tool-less serviceability.
The Intel Core i5 processor (quad-core / 6MB / four-threads / up to 3.4GHz / 65W) 7500 unit provides a good amount of power and supports both Windows 10 and Linux. The OS the desktop comes with is Windows 10 Pro version (64-bit) that is compatible with English, Spanish, and French.
Dell OptiPlex 3050 Upgrade Options
Additional (base) specs include 4GB of DDR4 memory (2400 MHz), a 500GB hard disk drive (7200 RPM / 3.5-inch), Intel integrated graphics (HD 630), and an 8x (9.5-mm) DVD +/- RW optical drive. Expand the memory up to 32GB and increase the storage capacity. For something faster than an HDD, you can add an SSD.
If you choose the SFF or Micro version of the Dell OptiPlex 3050 tower, there are options for a stand and display (sold separately) so you’ll be able to set up an all-in-one system for versatility. If an all-in-one setup isn’t for you, there are vertical stands and a VESA mount available so that you can mount the tower itself under the desk or on the wall. An adapter bracket is included with these mounts for managing power cables.
Stay connected to the internet with unhindered data transfers, and expect smooth connectivity with DisplayPort technology, variety of USB ports, HDMI, and optional serial port or VGA.
Whether you want the SFF or Micro tower, the Dell OptiPlex 3050 has a lot to offer in terms of security, speed, and reliability. It’s a must have for business use as well as personal use.
