All-in-one computers usually have the disadvantage that the screen cannot be freely selected and the computer cannot be replaced independently of the monitor. Dell provides a remedy here because the new Optiplex 3090 and 7090 All in one desktop models pack the entire computer including the Intel Tiger Lake processor and Thunderbolt 4 in a monitor stand.
If you don’t have space for a mini-desktop on your desk, the new Optiplex All-in-one computers are ideal, because these are modular monitor feet with an integrated computer. The keyword here is modular because the stand housing is sold separately so that the customer can choose the right stand for the desired height and monitor size from 24 to 40 inches. Since the screen is mounted using a VESA bracket, models from other manufacturers can also be used.
The main difference between the Dell Optiplex 7090 and the 3090 is the equipment – the cheaper model is available with SoCs from the Intel Celeron 6305 to the Core i5-1145G7, while the top model can also be equipped with a Core i7-1185G7. Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C) is also reserved for the Optiplex 7090, while both All in one PC computer models offer several USB-A ports, DisplayPort 1.4, Ethernet, and a headphone jack.
In any case, a USB-C port offers support for Power Delivery, so that only a power cable has to be run to the monitor and the computer is then supplied with power via the USB-C cable. Buyers can equip the computers with 4 GB to 64 GB DDR4-3.200 RAM as well as M.2 and 2.5-inch SSDs.
