    I have heard the ongoing optiplex vs dimension debate for some time now, and I have recently been stuck into it. What I had heard last was that for business purposes (we have about 30 people and growing) the optiplex was the way to go. However one of the network techs who helps us decide which coimputers to order is adamant that the dimension 5150 and 9150 are suitable business machines. Does anyone here have comments on that, or better yet, specific reasoning why one or the other is superior. I would also point out that since my employer is a department of a university, the cost difference is negligible (optiplex slightly cheaper). Any help and opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you, I saw that too. I was just hoping for something more recent because the argument I'm getting is that dells newest dimensions are business suitable. That has definitely sent me leaning towards optiplex though.

    While I'm sure that both Optiplex and Dimensions will run all standard office applications heres what Dell said.

    Dimension vs. OptiPlexTM
    While Dimension desktops offer the latest technology, the OptiPlex line is built for businesses with more than 10 employees. Network-optimized and designed to allow for managed transitions and a low total cost of ownership, OptiPlex is perfect for a large networked environment, long-term stability and business-class computing.
