Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Faster processor clock speed Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro is a 3.1GHz processor clock speed PC. That's 0.1GHz faster than the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny (3GHz). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

25% faster hard drive speed Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a hard drive speed of 7,200 RPM, however the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny is only a 5,400 RPM hard drive PC (1,800 RPM slower). Read more
