Dell OptiPlex 7440 AIO & Variants Price

The graphics are integrated with a native Intel chip being used. The Dell OptiPlex 7440 AIO thus packs the necessary features that make it a useful machine for commercial purposes, unless of course, your work is with graphics.

Design and Build
As an AIO, the PC stores all the primary components in its compact frame, and plastic has been used to design the exterior shell.
The compactness is why there only little space inside for expansion. But, you may not have a very good impression about it if you judge it on its looks.
There are other AIOs from Dell itself that have bezel-free displays, but sadly you will see thick borders on this one.
But this doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t like the 23 inch WLED FHD 1920*1080p screen.
Moreover, there is also a 4K option that comes at a higher cost.
The Dell OptiPlex 7440 has an i5-6500 processor that is a decent mid-range CPU, suitable for most office dwellers.
It has a speed of 3.2 GHz that goes up to 3.6 GHz at most and there is 8 GB of RAM for smooth operations as well.
For graphics you have an Intel 530 Graphics chip integrated and there isn’t any provision for adding a GPU.
The PC will provide you enough power for most business-related software, including MS Office, G suite and various desktop virtualization ones.
Windows 10 Pro OS comes installed in it already.
Storage and RAM
The user gets access to 500 GB storage in the hard disk.
There is also a 256 GB SSD version that you may choose if speed is more important to you rather than capacity.
The RAM is of 8 GB working at 2133 MHz, and you may expand it more.
Ports and Connectivity
There is a DVD drive as well and all that’s missing is a Type-C port.
This and some more accessibility to the ports would have made sure that no complaints were made about this aspect.
There are plenty of security features available on the computer so that your work is safe and sound.
There is also a 2 MP web cam that can be hidden manually.
You get a keyboard and mouse along with the AIO, and the standard Dell warranty of 3 years.
