Dell OptiPlex XE — Purpose-built, Highly Adaptable

Designed to withstand challenging conditions such as high heat, dust and 24x7 operations, the OptiPlex XE delivers on Dell’s commitment to purpose-built solutions more directly connected with customer needs. The system is easily placed within medical carts, video rental kiosks, retail point-of-sale (POS) solutions and other custom deployments that require easy remote management and long-term system stability options.

Additional product highlights include:

  • Heat tolerance up to 55° C (131° F) with optional ducting kit and a ‘mount virtually anywhere’ capability, ideal for enclosed spaces while standard port covers offer basic dust protection and an optional dust filter is designed to help reduce system downtime normally associated with dust removal;
  • Long-term system stability with a 3.5 year sales lifecycle and six-month managed transition period making it easy to maintain a consistent environment while planning for future deployment;
  • Support for Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Vista, XP, along with POSReady (available post-launch)and Ubuntu Linux support (China only);
  • Wide variety of peripherals support with native support for PS/2, Serial (RS-232), VGA, and up to seven USB connections including options for both powered USB and powered serial;
  • Excellent productivity with an easy to service tool-less chassis design, Dell ProSupport for IT Fast Track Dispatch option for rapid access to parts and service, Broadcom TruManage remote systems management and optional built-in system monitoring capabilities designed to help reduce downtime;
  • Security and data protection options such as full disk encryption, chassis intrusion alerts, and RAID 1 support to help organizations protect their assets and safeguard data;
  • Environmentally conscious 88 percent efficient power supplies, Dell Energy Smart power settings (select configurations), and Energy Star 5.0 and EPEAT Gold compliance options.

The Dell OptiPlex XE delivers a long product lifecycle (3.5 years) and, with the optional ducting kit, up to 50 percent higher operating temperature threshold than that of any other OptiPlex desktop. The OptiPlex XE also has more systems management capabilities and can withstand hotter operating environments than the HP rp5700.

In addition, Dell Retail Point-of-Sale (POS) Solutions offer optional integrated solutions that extend from customer-facing store automation technologies to back-office data storage systems.
