Re: Optiplex 3011 AIO CPU upgrade

I can definitely agree with that, as CPU upgrades easily offer the lowest return on investment of any upgrade - I took a Latitude from a dual-core i5 to a quad-core i7, with benchmark performance more than 2X as high, and I barely notice it.

Those AIOs are also a lot of steps and effort to upgrade and it's very easy to break a clip or forget a connection, and other than adding in memory, you really have to take a large portion of the system apart.

SSD -> Memory -> CPU would be the order of upgrades I would undertake with an AIO.
