The Reg model number is DO5U and the Reg type is DO5U002. The marketing name is the Optiplex FX170. The Dell Optiplex is commonly referred to as a nano computer. The FX 170 uses an Intel Atom ™ n270 1.6GHz/Intel 945 GSE + ICH7-m. The FX 130 is similar but uses nine watts. The Dell edition uses the DeTOS (Devon Terminal Operating System) operating system.
