    35 x Dell OptiPlex 745 USFF with 17" Monitors

    Hi All,

    We are upgrading an ICT Suite this summer and have 35 x Dell OptiPlex 745 USFF machines with 17" monitors. These are the All In One units with a bracket that holds both the monitor and base unit. They have been fantastic machines over the last 5 years, and we have kept with this same Dell AIO design since, buying 755, 760, 780 and more recently 790's.

    Spec as follows

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86Ghz (dual core)
    33 with 1GB RAM, 2 with 4GB RAM
    80GB Sata HDDs
    DVD-ROM
    17" Dell DVI monitor
    Keyboard
    Mouse
    NO OS
    Power supply units

    Over the last few months we've had a few need new BIOS batteries (CR2032) and we are replacing them as they go, but happy to supply 35 x CR2032s with these to cover the others.

    They will also all come with the original Dell DVI/VGA cable which allows you to run both a VGA and DVI screen from these (ideal for classrooms as saves having a VGA/DVI splitter box for the projector)

    They are in good condition, coming from a school with very few behavioural issues.

    We are looking for 100 each. You must be able to collect from Lincolnshire.

    As with anything second hand, no warranty of any kind. They will be available to collect after 15th August, but anyone is welcome to come and see them (in use!) beforehand.

    Thanks for looking!

    Yes, sorry, I meant the AIO design in general for the classroom, as we find it works well for us - but yes, you are correct, Dell changed the design when the 780 was released. Though I might add although the 780/790 design looks nicer it's certainly a lot more fiddly to put together!!

    The cover on the wires on the 790 & 780 isnt as good as the 745's

    Definitely - we have found exactly the same - it's tricky to remove the cover and then when you do the plastic rails usually come out! To me the release mechanism is way over engineered and is too intricate and fiddly. We're moving away from Dell this time because of this, and the fact they can't get within our budget.

    I think the whole design for the x90's is much better. Granted they'd be bloody brilliant if the cover extended and joined the locking mechanism underneath.


    It's also worth noting that Dell are nearly always happy to support out-of-warranty products.

    Yes - Dell support is great. We've only had one or two minor issues with these and they were sorted under warranty within the 3 year period. Had no issues in years 4 and 5.

    OK, I really need these to go! I need the space and I also need the money for another project which I'd like to complete over the summer.

    The absolute lowest we'll take for the lot is 2,500. That's an absolute bargain at 71 a machine! Let me know if you are interested!

    Still need this shifting - will take 2,000 for the 33 x 1GB machines and will keep the 2 x 4GB machines.

    That's 60 for an AIO design Core2Duo machine - bargain!

    If they don't go at this price they will be recycled.
