16 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most desktop computers that have been around for more than a year have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the DELL 3020M which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

At only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the DELL 3020M has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of computers that are a comparable age to the 3020M range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The DELL 3020M has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age. The average max internal memory supported processor of computers of a comparable age and type to the 3020M is 65GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

At only 2 gigahertz, the DELL 3020M has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 3020M. The processor clock speeds of similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the 3020M range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£356.92) (2.2GHz) which also has a higher rating.

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. 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.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (SSD).
