optiplex-xe3 - Extended lifecycle

Extended lifecycle

Built to last: With a long lifecycle, the OptiPlex XE3 significantly eases management and planning. A minimum three-and-a-half-year purchase lifecycle reduces the cost and complexity of system recertification, and includes the locking of key hardware and software components. Plus, you can easily maintain a consistent work environment while planning for future deployments with help from a six-month managed transition period.
optiplex-xe3 - Versatile, durable design

Versatile, durable design

Built for demanding work: From manufacturing to diagnostics labs, the XE3 easily integrates into your unique workspace and can handle the most challenging physical conditions.

Small space? No problem: Confidently run your desktop in hot and space-constrained areas, even inside cabinets. A robust chassis design and a durable fan enable a high temperature tolerance, up to 45°C ambient.

Unlimited options: Deploy with flexibility with two chassis options. Select the XE3 small form factor, optimized for constrained workspaces or the XE3 tower (now both with smaller footprint). Add custom dust filters to keep internal components clean and add optional cable covers for a secure, clutter-free workspace.

Ready for work: Specifically designed for original equipment manufacturers, an OEM-Ready version of the OptiPlex XE3 is available.
optiplex-xe3 - A productivity powerhouse

A productivity powerhouse

Ready to perform: Breeze through your everyday tasks with a high-performance desktop featuring powerful 8th generation Intel® Core™ Processors. Plus, 64GB of memory, Intel® Integrated graphics, and optional AMD or NVIDIA discrete graphics handle all of your graphic-intensive projects.

Plenty of storage: The XE3 can accommodate multiple storage options with 2.5" and 3.5" bays and an M.2 slot.

Connect with confidence: Connect new and legacy peripherals with native support for PS/2, Serial, 10 USB ports and an optional powered USB and Serial add-in cards.

Power your workday: Optional Intel® Optane™ Memory greatly improves your system’s performance through smoother, faster boot times. Support up to three monitors at once for serious multitasking, and power peripherals with HDMI 2.0b, or USB Type-C Alt Mode.


Because security starts with best-in class hardware, the OptiPlex desktops feature TPM 2.0 and a chassis intrusion switch. Add custom cable covers and a security lock to protect your investment. Plus, Dell Data Security offers comprehensive threat protection from end-to-end, so you can focus more on your work and spend less time worrying about your system.


The Dell Client Command Suite automates and streamlines system deployment, configuration, monitoring and updates and is free on all Dell commercial PCs. Optional Intel® vPro™ technology available on OptiPlex 7000 series and XE3, allows for remote and advanced out-of-band management capabilities.


Your system will withstand real world conditions thanks to a durable, built-to-last chassis that’s undergone MIL-STD 810G testing. A toolless design allows for quick system access to easily upgrade and replace components like storage and memory, making your PC viable for years to come.
