Dell Optiplex 780 the smallest PC with desktop chips

New Dell Optiplex USFF uses full Core 2 Duo

Dell on Thursday touted a rare approach to pro desktops with one of the smallest ever. The Optiplex 780 USFF (Ultra Small Form Factor) at 9.4 by 9.4 inches is championed as the smallest system to use primarily desktop components and only uses a 2.5-inch hard drive as its concession to size: it uses desktop processors up to a 3.33GHz Core 2 Duo and even builds in the power brick where many other systems this size would move it to the outside.

A base configuration starts at $624 and comes with a 2.2GHz Celeron, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive running Windows 7 and Intel GMA 4500 video but also three years of on-site help.

Besides the newer design, the Optiplex 380 has been given a low-profile update that adds a new chipset with support for more processors up to the Core 2 Quad. Actual pricing remains the same at the existing $329 to $349 range depending on the choice of a desktop, mini tower or small form factor box.
