Product Description

A smaller form factor that can be placed vertically or horizontally. Pre-configured with upgraded processor to handle your more demanding business tasks. Intel 3rd Generation i5-series processor.

The Dell OptiPlex 3010 Small Form Factor is a powerful, energy efficient desktop computer. This desktop is capable of running applications of all types, and comes in a small package. Even though Dell states the desktop operating environmental requirements is rated for temperatures ranging from 10° to 35°C (50° to 95° F), the desktop performed well in the Inveneo Hotbox, fully operating at 45°C for 3 days. The Optiplex desktop also has plenty of USB ports on both front and back of the machine. It performed quite well in both processor and graphics performance tests.

In comparison to the ASUS EB1007P, the Dell is a bit bigger but it has significantly higher performance and capacity. The Dell PC will take up more room on a desk than the ASUS EB1007P. It is worth also noting that, while the Dell is energy efficient, it uses 2X to 4X the power of the Intel Atom-powered ASUS EB1007P, i.e. from 30W typical to 60W maximum.

Our recommendation is especially based on the following criteria:

Value Performance
The 3010 performs at a very high level compared to other systems tested, including when subjected to hot conditions.
Value Power
The 3010 is relatively power efficient compared to standard desktop systems, partially owing to its efficient, effective cooling system.
Value Manufacturer Support
Dell is a Fortune 500 with a global footprint. They have a reputation for good support and a solid warranty.
