Verdict

The Optiplex 7460 being an AIO brings a compact package to your desk on which you can accomplish your everyday work without having to worry about speed or performance. However, the storage by default is on the lower side and it would have been better if a dedicated GPU could be added.

Nonetheless, it is a brilliant device that you may choose if you aren’t interested in gaming, editing, or anything of that sort that requires a lot of graphics or raw processing power.

The dependability it provides comes from the 8th gen Intel i5 processor and 8 GB of RAM. That said, even home users would find it useful but it is not as suitable for gamers.

You get 256 GB of SSD storage, and while it should be enough to store documents and presentations of your official work, you cannot use it to store a lot of bigger files.

It is thus well equipped to serve your intermediate needs. The SSD drive and the Intel Optane memory give you better operating speeds.

There is a touch screen variant as well and both the touch and non touch variants come with a 23.8” display.
