One does not really need a long list of things to set up a home office that’s conducive to productivity. As long as you have a functional computer, a comfortable desk and chair, and ample lighting, then you’re pretty much set up and ready to carry out all your tasks. Peripherals like a mechanical keyboard or a pair of headphones are superfluous if all you do at work is attend virtual meetings, send a few emails here and there, and do some number crunching on spreadsheets.
Then again, if your job does require more computing power, then a run-of-the-mill laptop may not be enough. In that case, it’s better to invest in a more powerful computer, maybe even a desktop, if you can swing it. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend thousands on one. A refurbished Dell Optiplex 980 Tower Computer PC is on sale, along with a keyboard and mouse to help complete your work setup.
Considered the highest-performing desktop in Dell’s OptiPlex line, the OptiPlex 980 delivers enterprise-class performance and features an energy-conscious design.
With next-generation Intel Core i7 or i5 processors and powerful DDR3 memory, it’s 35 percent more powerful compared to the rest of the OptiPlex systems. It also comes with the ON technology that reduces lags in productivity, as well as advanced display capabilities that let you hook up to four simultaneous displays.
While this unit is refurbished, it has gone through a thorough refurbishing process and quality control testing, meaning it’s been tested to ensure that it’s in proper working order before being put on the market. It also comes from a Microsoft-authorized seller, so you can rest assured that they have followed stringent requirements established by Microsoft itself to guarantee that you only receive units of the highest quality.
This refurbished Dell Optiplex 980 package normally retails for $449, but for a limited time, you can get it on sale for only $277.17.
