We have just released all new Optiplex 7460 AiO's for our K018 training classroom. These Windows 10 based machines have basically the same list of applications available as our lab machines (excluding Autodesk and Rhino), and are much faster than our older 2013 iMacs. For specs on these machines please see ourworkstation page.
