optiplex-xe3 - Extended lifecycle

Extended lifecycle

Built to last: With a long lifecycle, the OptiPlex XE3 significantly eases management and planning. A minimum three-and-a-half-year purchase lifecycle reduces the cost and complexity of system recertification, and includes the locking of key hardware and software components. Plus, you can easily maintain a consistent work environment while planning for future deployments with help from a six-month managed transition period.

Versatile, durable design

Built for demanding work: From manufacturing to diagnostics labs, the XE3 easily integrates into your unique workspace and can handle the most challenging physical conditions.

Small space? No problem: Confidently run your desktop in hot and space-constrained areas, even inside cabinets. A robust chassis design and a durable fan enable a high temperature tolerance, up to 45°C ambient.

Unlimited options: Deploy with flexibility with two chassis options. Select the XE3 small form factor, optimized for constrained workspaces or the XE3 tower (now both with smaller footprint). Add custom dust filters to keep internal components clean and add optional cable covers for a secure, clutter-free workspace.

Ready for work: Specifically designed for original equipment manufacturers, an OEM-Ready version of the OptiPlex XE3 is available.
A productivity powerhouse

A productivity powerhouse

Ready to perform: Breeze through your everyday tasks with a high-performance desktop featuring powerful 8th generation Intel® Core™ Processors. Plus, 64GB of memory and Intel® Integrated graphics to handle all of your graphic-intensive projects.

Plenty of storage: The XE3 can accommodate multiple storage options with 2.5" and 3.5" bays and an M.2 slot.

Connect with confidence: Connect new and legacy peripherals with native support for PS/2, Serial, 10 USB ports and an optional powered USB and Serial add-in cards.

Power your workday: Optional Intel® Optane™ Memory greatly improves your system’s performance through smoother, faster boot times. Support up to three monitors at once for serious multitasking, and power peripherals with HDMI 2.0b, or USB Type-C Alt Mode.
