Dell extends AMD-based desktop line-up

Latest machine pitched at business buyers

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Dell's European operation has extended the range of desktop systems it offers that are based on AMD processors. Following the September launch of AMD-based Dimension PCs, Dell has now begun selling AMD-equipped Optiplex machines too.

The system in question is the Optiplex 740, offered with a choice of single-core Athlon 64 3800+ or dual-core Athlon 64 X2 3800+. The former CPU is fitted in a machine with 512MB of 667MHz DDR 2 SDRAM; a 160GB, 7,200rpm SATA II hard drive, Gigabit Ethernet card and 48x DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive.

The dual-core machine ups the memory to 1GB and adds an AMD ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card with 128MB of video RAM. It also comes bundled with a 17in LCD monitor, which the lower-end 740 lacks.

These are the baselines specs, of course - built-to-order customers can tweak to add faster dual-core CPUs, up to 4GB of 800MHz DDR 2, and bigger or faster hard drives.

The basic dual-core model costs £599, the low-end machine will set you back £349 - both prices exclude VAT and shipping. ®
