Looking for a powerful tiny PC on the cheap? Check out the Optiplex 5040 small form factor desktop PC from Dell. For a limited time, this quad-core machine is being discounted by a total of 42%, and Dell is also offering up a three year warranty at no extra cost.
On the inside, the Optiplex 5040 sports a sixth generation quad-core 3.4GHz Intel Core i7-6700 CPU, integrated Intel HD Graphics 530, 8GB of DDR3L RAM (1600MHz), a 500GB 7200RPM hard drive, and an 8x DVD burner. A wired keyboard and mouse combo are packed along for free, so all you’ll need is an HDTV or monitor to hit the ground running. And since it sports two DisplayPorts and an HDMI port, getting it hooked up to your display of choice shouldn’t be a problem.
If you’re looking to upgrade this device down the road, you’re in luck. Not only does it offer a whopping six USB 3.0 ports, but it also features a half-height PCIe x16 slot, a half-height PCIe x4 slot, and an M.2 slot. You’re not going to be able to fit a giant high-end graphics card in this tiny case, but this gives you plenty of options in how you can to customize your rig down the road.
Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) comes installed by default, so you’ll be set if you have legacy computing needs. And since a license for Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) is included for free, you’ll be able to get all of the benefits from Redmond’s latest operating system at no additional cost.
Normally, this setup goes for $1270, but Dell is selling it directly now for just $889. Use coupon code “SAVE40%” at checkout, and you’ll save an additional $127. And since shipping is free, you’re only left paying $762 for this awesome little PC (plus any applicable taxes).
