Dell OptiPlex 990 USFF review 4*/5* July 2011

OptiPlex 990 Award

There's a substantial price difference between the Vostro™ 460 and the OptiPlex™ 990. But the OptiPlex line includes Dell's ProSupport services, which are likely to be invaluable if your business doesn't have robust IT services. That said, if you have your own backend support in place, the Vostro 460 offers marginally better performance, and will save you a few quid. Also keep in mind that both machines can be customized to suit your needs, and you'll save a bit of cash if you opt for a larger chassis. You'll lose out on the space savings that the OptiPlex 990 SFF offers, but you will have room inside to make your own upgrades.
Overall rating: Rating: 4*/5*
