After nearly stealing the award for Best Desktop Computer away from Technology Distribution Network last year, Dell's OptiPlex easily won this year. Garnering four Readers' Choice awards this year, Dell has become an industry favorite, providing solid value and support. "We order workstations by the thousands every couple of years, and of all the brands I've worked with, I have fewer 'broke out of the box' and failures with Dell than with any other brand," reader John Catlin said.

OptiPlex models are available in a range of performance capabilities, featuring Intel processors, integrated graphics, and multiple chassis options. Built for easy manageability, all models feature LegacySelect software to let administrators remotely activate or deactivate ports, slots, or devices. OptiPlex offers a reliable, powerful business technology foundation for networked environments.
