Dell Announces World’s Most Manageable, Energy Efficient Commercial Desktop Ever With a Gold EPEAT Rating and Energy Star 4.0 Compliance
Dell today is adding the OptiPlex 755 with the most flexible approach to systems management, delivering on customer demands for business efficiency.
The OptiPlex 755 also adds to Dell’s environmental leadership with Energy Star 4.0 compliance and an Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) “Gold” rating.
“Our commitment to customers is to eliminate complexity throughout the lifecycle of their IT assets,” said Darrel Ward, director, Dell Product Group. “We designed the OptiPlex 755 to be the most flexible and versatile business desktop available to date with innovations in systems management, eco-design and services.”
Most Flexible Systems Management and Serviceable Products
With the most flexible approach to systems management in the industry, the OptiPlex 755 will help simplify IT by reducing the number of desk side service visits required for system service and maintenance. Dell is also integrating Intel vPro technology with advanced remote management features that help drive business efficiency. Customers now have the ability to manage systems that are powered down or have no operating system, reducing time spent on patch deployment by up to 94 percent and desk-side service visits by up to 56 percent.1
The OptiPlex 755 allows customers to choose the right solution for their environment with room to grow as a result of:
- The only major PC vendor to offer customers a flexible upgrade path from ASF to vPro within the same platform.
- Dell Client Manager (DCM) Standard, a management console that is available at no charge for the life of the deployment, unlike competitors that offer free “trial periods” for similar products.
- Support for industry-leading management solutions from companies such as Altiris, Microsoft and LanDesk that integrate hardware and software administration.
When desk-side visits are necessary, the number of steps required to remove and replace components on OptiPlex systems can be up to half that of similar Hewlett Packard desktops.
Dell Extends Environmental Leadership
The OptiPlex 755 delivers on Dell’s commitment to be the “most green technology vendor” in the industry with products and services that reduce carbon emissions through energy efficiency. The company currently leads the industry with a comprehensive lineup of Energy Star 4.0 compliant commercial products and has the most business desktops with EPEAT “Gold” status. The OptiPlex 755, along with other Dell products, is also available with Energy Smart power settings that can lower energy costs by up to 78 percent.2
Dell is also taking a leadership position in helping commercial customers who purchase new systems to further reduce their emission footprint associated with electricity used to power IT equipment with its “Plant a Tree for Me” program. Donations to the program support The Conservation Fund and Carbonfund.org, two non-profit partners of Dell that plant trees in sustainably managed reforestation projects.
ImageDirect Helps Lower Effort and Cost of Maintaining Client Software Images
Dell’s ImageDirect service, available in the United States, is an industry-first service with 12 patents-pending that can reduce the number of software images customers are required to manage in their client environments. It allows customers to create a single master image in up to nine languages with organization-wide applications that can be customized according to departmental needs. When a change is made to the master image, it is made to all. The service can decrease image maintenance cost and speeds time-to-deployment of new systems.

Dell plans to extend advanced systems management capabilities to notebooks with the introduction of the Latitude D630c based on Intel Centrino Pro technology in October.
