OptiPlex XE Desktop - Design That Fits Right In

An optional external power button provides easy access for kiosks and other enclosed-space uses.
OptiPlex XE Desktop - Ready to Take the Heat
Ready to take the heat: Designed to run 24/7 in enclosed spaces, the OptiPlex™ XE is specified to operate at ambient temperatures of up to 45°C (113°F). An optional ducting kit can boost heat tolerance up to 55°C (131°F).
OptiPlex XE Desktop - Peripheral Perfect
Peripheral perfect: With native support for PS/2, Serial (RS-232), VGA and up to 10 USB connections, including powered, the OptiPlex™ XE can support a wide variety of new and legacy peripherals.

Stability You Can Count On

The OptiPlex™ XE offers long-term system stability, customisable integrated solutions and a low total cost of ownership for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and retail/point-of-sale (POS) customers.
  • Long Purchase Lifecycle: A long purchase lifecycle (which includes the locking of key hardware and software components) helps reduce the cost and complexity normally associated with system recertification. Add optional service and support features to supplement the standard limited hardware warranty*
  • Long Managed Transitions: A long managed-transition period makes it easy to maintain a consistent work environment while planning for future deployments. 
  • Dell™ OEM Solutions: With the OptiPlex XE, Dell™ offers OEMs the option of a holistic solution that extends from custom branding and factory integration to phenomenal service and support. Contact your Dell™ representative today to build an OEM solution that meets your needs and budget.
OptiPlex XE Desktop - Built-In Management, Enhanced with Dell Services

Built-In Management, Enhanced with Dell Services

The OptiPlex XE offers superb servicing and manageability, helping to ensure that systems can be maintained with ease even when installed in enclosed spaces, retail kiosks or off-site locations.
  • Efficient Remote Management: Available Broadcom® TruManage™ technology allows IT to monitor and maintain the OptiPlex XE remotely, helping to minimize user downtime and schedule patches or updates during "off peak" hours.
  • Easy On-the-Job Maintenance: The OptiPlex XE tool-less chassis includes a tool-less power supply that makes it easy to change a power-supply unit (PSU) quickly. Dell DirectDetect™ troubleshooting LEDs allow for quick diagnosis of hardware issues without opening the chassis.
  • Built-In System Monitoring: The OptiPlex XE features a "watch-dog" timer to self-monitor features such as system boot, operating-system load and specified applications. Additional hardware-monitoring features provide notification in the event of temperature, power-on self-test (POST), fan and PSU failures.
  • Customisable Dell Services: From ready-to-use hardware customization to dedicated technical service through Dell ProSupport for IT* and Dell ProManage, Dell offers a suite of highly customisable service and support offerings throughout the PC lifecycle.
