Our Specialist view of the Dell Optiplex 3010 Mini Tower PC

The Spec:

The Dell Optiplex 3010 refurbished MT PC has the following spec: A Mini Tower chassis containing an Intel Core i5 3rd Gen Quad Core processor, 4GB RAM, a 500GB SATA III hard drive and a DVD ROM optical drive. Windows 10 Professional 64Bit is preinstalled and ready to go out of the box. Plenty of USB 2.0 ports are included front and back, as well as VGA and HDMI connectivity for monitors.

The Good Bits:

The chassis is very much the main plus point with this PC. Not only is the metal chassis both sturdy and durable, for the age of this refurbished 3010 it offers a wide range of ports and lots of expandability options.  There are plenty of USB ports to choose from and space aplenty inside to add a graphics card and/or WiFi card. That’s the great thing about the 3010; its size gives you so much flexibility. 

The Not So Good Bits:

A quad core processor is great on paper but it’s important to note that the 3rd generation in the 3010 is a solid and reliable performer; it is a little dated compared to the latest 10th and 11th gen i5 processors available now. The lack of USB 3.0 ports is a little disappointing as well but the amount of USB 2.0 ports does make up for it.

The Design:

Dell PC’s are more or less always solidly built and reliable and the Optiplex 3010 is no different. Perhaps 2 more USB ports on the front in addition to the existing 2 would have been far better but as most peripherals are connected semi-permanently or permanently, this isn’t a tick in the cons box for the 3010. Accessing the inside of the PC is also so easy. No screw to undo, a simple catch on the side provides easy access.


Very much a business spec PC, the 3010 would be at home in an office but could easily be an all rounder in a home or education environment, a good solid all-rounder!
