Price (RRP): $from $2038
The Dell OptiPlex 7760 AIO is a business grade all-in-one PC with a huge range of configurations and prices. What else do you expect from Dell?
We use the term business grade because these need to be made well enough to stand up to a five-year lease cycle – the Dell OptiPlex 7760 AIO will do that with ease. And Dell tends to use Intel reference designs – excellent for long term driver and firmware updates.
But consumers may like that reliability as well. And if not, Dell has Inspiron 24-inch 5000 and 27-inch 7000 All-in-Ones that are pretty good as well.
Why an AIO?
- Takes up far less desk space
- Nice aesthetics – it looks good
- Great for apartment dwellers – no cable clutter.
- Limited expansion options – two memory and one M.2 and 2.5
Review: Dell OptiPlex 7760 AIO
There is a veritable smorgasbord of specifications so we will cover the range. Our tests unit was a 27-inch, 1K, touch screen and 8/128GB RAM and an Intel i5-8400 Core Processor.
- 8th gen Intel Core i3-8300, i5-8400, i5-8500, i5-8600 i7-7700
- 4/8/16/32GB DDR4 2666Mhz (2 memory slots)
- SATA 6 500GB/5400 to 1TB 7200 (one bay)
- M.2 2280 PCIe NVME 128/256 class 35 or 40 (one slot only – should support 1/2TB SSD)
- 27” HD non-touch and touch and 4K non-touch
- Dell entry level keyboard KB216 and MS116 black mouse
- Three years onsite with options to 5 years
- Win Pro
PC UserBench reports the most common configuration tested is 80% i-7-8700, 16/256GB but that reflects a small proportion of the tens of thousands sold to enterprise. We suspect the sweet spot is i5, 8GB and 128GB SSD.
Base price is from $2038.99 to $2829 plus options
New 9th gen 7770 (essentially the same) – website here
i5-9500, i7-9700, i9-9900 with a base price from $2695 to $3989 plus options.
It comes in a largish TV style box with the quick remove clips and base making it very easy to unpack. You get the unit, a power cable; standard Dell cabled keyboard and optical mouse.
Enterprise users will doubtlessly have some automated roll-out and management procedure. Consumers get the usual Windows 10 setup.
Dell Commander will then update (and keep up to date) the system patches. Windows will update to the latest patches as well.

This unit came with an articulating stand that tilts from upright to angled to flat – it’s an interesting stand perfect for touch screen operation. However, it is wider and takes up more desk space so the height adjustable, pivot stand may be a better option.
