I am just going to throw thos out there. If you search the web of this topic you basically come up with two reasons the Optiplex is better. 1) It is a better build quality and 2) The Vostro is really only intended for Smal Businesses with either no network or 25 or less user network.
The problem I am dealing with is that neither of those two reasons make a lot of sense to me. Especially #2. No real concrete reasoning and/or detail can be found for either of those comments. My only real complaints about the Vostro are that the case seems a little flimsey and the power supply (300W) a little week.
I want to ask the Experts. 1) How often do you reccommend to your customers to replace their computers and 2) What is your opinion of Vostro vs Optiplex?
