Dell OptiPlex 160 specs

Dell on Tuesday released specifications of its smallest commercial desktop PC, the OptiPlex 160, which was first introduced as part of a wider Optiplex release back at the end of October. Meant for offices where space is at a premium, basic OptiPlex 160s weigh less than 5lbs and can be mounted on the back of LCD monitors, for example, while being energy-efficient thanks to an advanced, 87-percent efficiency power supply and the use of Intel's Atom processor, the single-core, 1.6GHz N270. A dual-core Atom with the same clock speed is due early in 2009.

Little else has been released about the small office PC, apart from the availability of a 160GB hard disk drive and 64GB solid state drive, as well as the option of wireless network modules and RAM support for up to 4GB. Like other OptiPlex desktops, the 160 will include Dell's Client Manager console for overseeing the systems by IT professionals. Other Dell services, including comprehensive support, extended warranties, custom factory integration and more will be optional.

While Dell hasn't divulged any specific release or pricing information, the OptiPlex 160 was previously reported to come in at $399.
