You know how some sci-fi movies often depict future computers as just a couple of thin monitors? Well, that future has arrived and it is the Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, a first-of-its-kind PC that is really just the stand of the monitor. That’s right. The monitor stand you see above is also the CPU of a fully functional computer. I know right? It sounds pretty crazy, but it is absolutely real.
With Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, it is not just about having a space-saving and clutter-free PC; it is also fully modular, allowing you to configure and upgrade as required throughout its product life cycle. In other words, unlike All-In-One (AIO), the PC and display can be upgraded and serviced independently of one another. These are the key features Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra has to offer:
• Independent upgrade of the PC and display5, so customers can swap out, upgrade or service any part at any time
• A monitor stand that integrates the PC within and includes physical security options designed to protect against tampering
• Flexible configurations ideal for multi-user, open-plan workspaces
• Configurable to different use cases or work styles with compatible products like a height adjustable stand, fixed stand, VESA mount, Dell Single Monitor Arm | MSA20 for superior adjustability and Dell Dual Monitor Arm | MDA20 for added desk agility
• Performance and scalability to match users’ needs, up to Intel® Core™ vPro™ i7 processors, 64GB6 of RAM, 1TB7 NVMe SSD and 2TB HDD
Despite of the Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra diminutive size, it is designed to support up to three displays – from 19 all the way to 27 inches. To further cut the clutter, the entire system only has just one cable for power, data, video and audio when used with Dell USB-C monitors. The Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra is expected to land on September 24 and costs an average price of $749.
