Dell tells Techzine about the introduction of an ultra-thin and lightweight zero-footprint desktop, the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra. All technology on this PC is incorporated in the standard display. Hence the ‘zero’: there is no need for a separate PC cabinet anymore.

The device does not need any hardware to operate, except for the display and the stand. So, the product is a thing of the past when it comes to installing a PC cabinet, something that Dell says will help companies to make the most efficient use of their space. The PC would be particularly suitable for open work floors, says Dell.

IT leaders need to keep costs down and give employees the flexibility and freedom to work in the most productive way. More and more organizations are moving to open workspaces and are looking for technology that maximizes office space, productivity and IT investment, said Dave Lincoln, Vice President of Fixed Computing at Dell. Thirty-five years ago, Dell changed the way pcs were made and delivered. With the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, we do that again, with an innovative desktop solution.

Features

The device is also modular, which means that it is possible to disconnect the standard (in which all technology is incorporated) from the display. This means that the PC and the display can be upgraded as required. It also makes it easier to maintain the PC. In addition, a number of physical security features have been incorporated into the standard, which are intended to prevent abuse of the PC by third parties. The use of up to two additional screens is also supported. Moreover, the PC has only one cable, which provides data, video, audio and power. Currently, the zero-footprint PC is scalable to Intel Core vPro i7 processors, 64GB of RAM, 1TB NVMe SSDs and 2TB HDDs.

The OptiPlex 7070 Ultra will be available from 24 September. In the United States the PC costs 749 dollars, according to the Dutch press release the price in our country will be about the same.
