With the new lineup, Dell says the series features advances in smart design, productivity and sustainability, alongside being the "world's most secure and manageable commercial PCs." The new Dell OptiPlex range starts from Rs. 33,999 onwards and is customisable as per the configuration.
Commenting on the launch, Indrajit Belgundi, Director and General Manager, Client Solutions Group at Dell India said, "Desktops are leading form factors for businesses in India and Dell has been a consistent leader as indicated by IDC for All -in-ones in Q1 CY18. Dell identifies desk-workers as a major workforce persona - one that needs reliable, secure and innovative machines that respond to their business needs." It is worth noting that since these are commercial products that come with various configurations in terms of storage, processor, graphics, etc, the prices vary accordingly.
