Our Specialist view of the Dell Optiplex 3050 SFF PC
The Small Form Factor Dell 3050 refurbished PC specs are as follows: A compact computer with a chassis small computer with a chassis less than 30cm high when stood up and weighing just over 5 kilos. Inside the case is an Intel Core i5-6400 quad core processor, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB 2.5” SATA Solid State Drive (SSD). The desktop also has a slim line DVDRW optical drive, a mix of USB 3.0 USB 2.0 Type A ports as well as DisplayPort and HDMI for video. Windows 10 Professional 64Bit is also preinstalled.
The Good Bits:
In keeping with Dells excellent build quality, reliability and easy to maintain chassis, the Dell 3050 is easy to roll out whether you’re looking for a home PC, business machine or classroom PC. The processor, while not the most up to date still has 4 cores and can run up to 3.30GHz using Turbo Boost so it will handle lots of different web browser tabs plus a different programs running at the same time. There is also plenty of capacity for more RAM and a tool-less chassis provides easy access to perform upgrades and essential maintenance.
The Not So Good Bits:
For most home users the lack of Wi-Fi connectivity is an issue but not a purchase defining one as there is a gigabit network connection and capacity to use a USB Wi-Fi dongle or fit an internal card. The smaller SSD doesn’t provide loads of storage but thankfully with it being a 2.5 inch drive, an upgrade won’t be too tricky.
This Dell is a pleasant blend of space saving and high performance. There is a good assortment of ports on the front of the PC so there’s no need to reach behind and blindly search for a spare port. We also really like the black matt finish and mesh-like grill on the front.
The 3050 is a business spec PC on the face of it but we wouldn’t suggest not buying it if you are simply looking for a good spec home use PC.
