Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Four more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 has six USB 2.0 ports, however the Lenovo S500 SFF only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.

Significantly narrower Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 is a 175mm wide PC, whereas the Lenovo S500 SFF is a 295mm wide PC (120mm wider).
8 Reasons For
3% faster processor clock speed Edit
The Lenovo S500 SFF is a 3.7GHz processor clock speed PC. That's 0.1GHz faster than the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (3.7GHz). 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.

A bit bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memory Edit
The Lenovo S500 SFF has a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74GB, however the DELL OptiPlex 3020 is only a 1.7GB maximum on-board graphics adapter memory PC (0.04GB smaller).
