Hardware Standards

STANDARD DESKTOP COMPUTERS:

• Dell OptiPlex 7040

The Dell Optiplex 7040 is available in two chassis sizes: the Mini Tower (MT) and the Small Form Factor (SFF). The combination of power and small size makes the 7040 SFF a popular desktop option for many departments. The SFF is the smaller chassis size and can be placed directly on the desk, underneath, or beside the desk. The Mini Tower is the larger of the 2 chassis and is a good choice if you need to install more internal components (i.e. scientific instrumentation controllers, extra internal drives, higher end video cards, etc.) or just prefer a larger chassis size.
