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;

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.
