10 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

We calculated the average ratings for all DELL computers and also specifically for DELL medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases DELL had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 310MHz to 850MHz. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 270 that we have assessed, the on-board graphics adapter base frequency of the DELL 270 of 650 megahertz is one of the fastest.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the 270 range from 4GB to 3.6TB. The DELL 270 has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on comparable spec computers that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Three PCI Express X1 Slots

The DELL 270 is a three PCI Express x1 slot PC.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the DELL 270 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by computers that are a similar age to the 270.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi DL, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.

6 Reasons Against

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The average max internal memory supported processor of desktop computers of a similar type and age to the 270 is 65GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of only 32 gigabytes, the DELL 270 has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other personal computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers of this spec and age. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD personal computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2325928_price], or the 800 G2 SFF[pl_3768356_price] both from HP.

PCs with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] (SSD), the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2985619_price] (SSD) all from DELL.

Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slot

The DELL 270 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

At only 6 megabytes, the DELL 270 has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. The average processor cache of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 270 is 6.6MB.

Chart Edit

Only Four Processor Threads

Most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the 270 have between four and seven processor threads, including the DELL 270 which has four processor threads.

4 Other reasons to consider the DELL 270

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when DELL released the 270.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.1 gigahertz, the DELL 270 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 270.

Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_3094050_price] (3.2GHz and cheaper); or the DELL Inspiron 3647[plb_3110567_price] (3.2GHz and higher rated).
