Deciding between a sleek all-in-one PC form factor and a desktop upgrade is one of the toughest decisions businesses have to make to outfit their cabinets with new computers.
Dell aims to make this solution easier for businesses with the announcement of its new OptiPlex 7070 Ultra computer, which hides a complete computer in a monitor rack.
The company's new zero footprint, desktop design is not only space-saving and convenient, it is also fully modular, allowing customers to customize the device and update it as needed throughout the product lifecycle.

Dell's VP of Fixed Computing, Dave Lincoln, explained how the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra helps businesses maximize desktop space without sacrificing performance, saying:
“IT leaders are facing pressure to keep costs down and give employees the freedom and flexibility to work towards the goals they are most productive. As more organizations move to open floor plans, they are looking for technology that increases workspace, productivity and IT investment. Thirty-five years ago, Dell thwarted the way PCs were manufactured and shipped to the world. With the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, we're changing categories again, with an innovative desktop solution that's hidden in plain sight."

According to Dell's analytics support, companies like having the ability to upgrade their systems as well as enjoying the all-in-one PC aesthetic. However, since customers tend to upgrade their computers more often than their displays, the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra can be upgraded independently to bring the best aspects of a traditional desktop along with an all-in-one.
The new Dell devices can also be customized for a variety of use cases with a wide range of compatible add-ons, including height-adjustable stand, fixed stand, VESA mount, single monitor and dual workstation monitors. In general, the OptiPlex 7070 computer can support up to three 19" to 27" displays for increased performance.
Cable management has also been simplified by the fact that power, data, video and audio are all transferred over a single cable when the Ultra is paired with Dell's USB-c monitors.
Businesses interested in upgrading their workplaces will be able to purchase the Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra for $749 on September 24th.
