2024 Business Laptop and Desktop Recommendation

Often our clients want to know what laptop or desktop we recommend they buy. So, we’re excited to share our computer recommendations for most users; the Dell Latitude 3540 and Dell OptiPlex 7010 computers. Regardless of your business is financial, educational, medical, or manufacturing needs, these two devices are the best combination of power, reliability, and performance for most users.

Dell Latitude 3540 Laptop Specifications

Let’s start with the Dell Latitude 3540 Laptop. It’s a lightweight and portable laptop, catering to those who seek both performance and reliability. We recommend at least an Intel Core i5 processor. While an Intel Core i3 is a more affordable choice in the immediate, it does not have the speed and capability needed to handle larger spreadsheets to keep your workday flowing smoothly. We also recommend using a minimum of 16GB of RAM with this device for multitasking capabilities.

With its robust design and stunning 15.6-inch HD display, the Latitude 3540 guarantees both a seamless user experience and can take a few dings. This is a workhorse computer. It is designed to handle what most modern business users can throw their way. Plus, you won’t have to worry about constantly searching for an outlet because this laptop has a long battery life.

Storage capacity is never an issue with a Latitude 3540. You’ll have plenty of space to store all your important files and applications, ensuring you never have to settle. Feel free to be productive, rest assured your laptop is ready to support you all the way.

Dell OptiPlex 7010 Desktop Specifications

For those seeking a desktop solution with power and performance, the OptiPlex 7010 has you covered. As we did for the Latitude, we recommend equipping your device with an Intel Core i5 processor. For effortless multitasking, we also recommend using a minimum of 16GB of RAM. For those seeking more power, the Intel Core i7 processor and 32GB of RAM can handle resource-intensive applications and multitasking effortlessly.

The OptiPlex 7010’s customizable specifications allow you to tailor the computer to your specific needs. Its small form factor design ensures it won’t take up too much desk space while offering expandability options for future upgrades.

Durability and Reliability

One of the standout features of both the Latitude 3540 and OptiPlex 7010 is their durability and reliability. Dell is renowned for manufacturing devices that are built to last, with rigorous testing procedures to ensure their products withstand the test of time. These devices are designed to withstand bumps, shocks, and various environmental conditions, making them ideal for users who require devices that can withstand continuous use and transportation.


The Dell Warranty is one of the best in the business. We recommend a 3-year warranty. If a part needs repaired, Dell will send a technician with replacement parts the next business day to your location. They will ensure that the computer is working properly. Other manufacturers require you to mail the computer back to them, keeping it out of your hands for days.

Enhanced Security Features

Be it personal or business use, security is always a top priority. The Latitude 3540 and OptiPlex 7010 come equipped with advanced security features to protect your data. Both devices offer TPM (Trusted Platform Module). This allows you to turn on drive encryption, supplying an added layer of security for sensitive information.

The Latitude 3540 and OptiPlex 7010 are two exceptional computing devices that cater to diverse needs. Whether you’re a frequent traveler looking for a reliable laptop or a professional seeking a powerful desktop workstation, these devices offer outstanding performance, durability, and security features.

Standardize with Quality

These models are the majority that we install at 4BIS. This standardization allows us to be proactive with support. If we see a software or driver issue, we can push out the fix to the other computers on our management. This is often before most users see any problems.

Investing in the Latitude 3540 or OptiPlex 7010 means embracing the innovative technology and dependability Dell is renowned for. So, whether you’re a student, a professional, or a casual user, these devices are sure to elevate your computing experience to new heights.

Heavy processing and video users that need graphic design software, or CAD, will need a more powerful computer. These computers will often have better cooling and video cards.
