Re: I just replaced the PSU in one

I buy refurbished Dells because you can find boxes with equivalent performance for less than you can build a PC if you're a good shopper. On the downside, the PSUs in their cheaper PCs are a bit underpowered if you plan on getting a higher end video card. But, it's easily replaced.

We have pretty much stuck with Optiplex and Precision for desktop and that helps down the road because parts are also available in the used market and those series have proven best for software support.

I have bought a lot of Outlet Latitude and Optiplex recently and a missing power cable on my doorstep the next morning was the biggest problem and all were latest model systems for about 20-27% less than building same new. Some had t8x5x NBN, and the warranty service is better for Latitude and Optiplex.
