Purchasing Recommendation - Technical Dell Minitower

Article Purpose

The following recommendation is for purchasing a new Dell technical desktop computer. For most applications this equipment will have a minimum effective lifecycle of five (5) years before needing replacement.

Notice: Most individual computing needs can be accommodated with the Standard Workstation models. The Technical workstations are for power hungry applications like complex mathematical computations, extremely large AutoCAD renderings, or extensive video editing, and in many cases a standard workstation equipped with additional RAM (16 GB+) may perform better at less cost than a technical workstation. If you are unsure which model bests suits your needs please free to contact IT Services and the Desktop Team can provide you with a quote tailored for your specific needs.
