Dell makes computers. Dell makes monitors. You would think that Dell could find a way to merge the two without making an all-in-one - And you’d be right! Let’s look at the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra…

    my uni has dell AIO computers everywhere, in the last year or so, they replaced all of them with a newer version of the exact same computer, only visible difference on the outside is one of the USBA ports was replaced with a USB C port. that would be the ideal use for this computer, the IT team can go through and remove all the old modules, drop in the new ones, instant upgrade without wasting all the other parts

    Dell's consumer products and business solutions are basically separate companies that shares logo and part of distribution line. As far as I know (may not be true) - motherboards and components for Latitude and Vostro are made by Intel and Compal, and they are assembled by Dell itself in Ireland and Brasil, and (most) Inspirons are manufactured in China and Taiwan by subvendors and only supervised.

    One Secret Trick your IT guy doesn't want you to know: With all of the deserved hate Dell gets from enthusiasts, it's easy to forget that there's good reasons they're industry leaders in business, education, & government. When looking to buy 20+ PCs for an office or classroom, Dell gets picked many times because of their special pricing options, they accept proof of a tax-free status, and their dreaded forced warranty service can be exactly what those bigger types of buyers need because it effectively outsources IT costs. Extended warranty coverage is why Cisco networking equipment is also a top choice among commercial Dell buyers. If it breaks, then Cisco sends a certified technician within 48 hours to the client's site for repair or replacement. The warranty can easily pay for itself when compared to hiring a dedicated on-site IT staff. Incompetent morons don't seem to get past the Cisco certification exams, so their support service has become an industry gold standard. The Oval Office uses Cisco VoIP phones so they're a pretty well respected brand.

    well i would never buy it, 1400 dollars for an I5? per haps in 2019, my computer is a Lenovo with the same specs and costed me 700 dollars in the beggining of last year, i5s are old, i regret have bought my computer, without an i7 or a i9 your computer cannot roll the latest games, with my i5 with 8gb ram and 1080 Graphic card i cant even play witcher 3 in lower specs, for quality price the tech in Dell optiplex is not worth half of its price, you are paying for the name basicly. Linus do you think you can make a video with the best gaming laptops or computers in the market for less than 1000 dollars? I really need a gaming computer and i cannot exceed 1000 dollars, and my 700 dollar lenovo ideapad330 is not enough, i was going to buy the legion one but the specs were the same, i only sacrificed cooling but my games are not playable even when i launch them and my laptop is at minimal temperature, can you tell me how i can boost my laptop in order to play witcher 3 without having an ingame delay, fps are too low for the game to be even played, but the seller assured me he played witcher 3 in a computer with the same specs.

    Eventhough this isn't 'consumer', you can still buy it as a consumer. It does have some good applications that I can think of. For an appliance PC, where you want internet access in a workshop for example, without having a big PC case or laptop spread out on a bench. My personal use-case would be as a music server connected to my DAC, which allows for a simple footprint and portability if I move around my setup; while keeping a sleek and simple footprint when in use. (I'm presently using a small thin client for the job.)

    Oh boy...The sponser. Y'all should know that planting trees will NOT solve global warming. Here are some FACTS before you join that scam: for 50 million people living a first world lifestyle you would have to plant around 500 million trees EVERY single year before you actually manage to REDUCE your carbon footprint....LMFAO. You dig the trees (original source of carbon dioxide) and burn it while the planet is sustaining itself as much as possible and not getting extra vegetation. Where are you going to plant THAT many trees without messing up the ecosystem? right...dear youtube viewers, go invest ur money elsewhere.

    Hey Linus!! Not everyone is rich and has a lot of money, some people like me can't make a great gaming PC at once, so we have to buy one part separately, and it takes one to two years. And as technology advances, the parts we buy become obsolete by then. Make a video of how we buy parts of a good gaming system in a couple of years, that Don't get old.

    Dells monitor stand was already the best stand out there by far. And the next best stands were the ones that ripped of dells stand. Forget the bazillion movements it offer, it doesn't come in your keyboard or mouse way while you're gaming. Doesn't matter how close you sit to your monitor or what angle you place your keyboard.
