Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra hides a computer in its stand to save space

Dell today announced the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra, a modular compact PC designed for the space-constrained and open-plan workplaces.

Whereas a traditional all-in-one systems feature integrated, difficult to remove hardware, Dell’s modular approach enables the system to be upgraded with higher-performing versions down the road. Decoupling the PC from the monitor also allows the user to select their preferred monitors–including third-party displays–and retain them during an upgrade.

The Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra (middle layer) rests in the monitor stand to save space.

Internally, the compute module can support up to a 25W Intel Core-i7 vPro mobile processors, 64GB DDR4 RAM, two 1TB SSDs and 2TB HDD.

The compute module is powered through a single USB-C cable much like a laptop. Furthermore, only a single cable is needed to feed power, audio, and video when paired with a compatible Dell USB-C monitor.

Different stand options for Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra

In addition to the fixed stand, Dell has also introduced am elevator stand and a swivel stand for the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra. In the case of the swivel stand, the compute module mounts to the side of the arm. The stands include physical security options that protect against tampering and can support up to a 27″ VESA mount compatible display.

The Dell OptiPlex 7070 Ultra will be available starting Sept. 24 with an average price of US$749.
