10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on comparable spec computers that were released around the same time as it.
With a depth of only 176 millimeters, the DELL 3020M is fairly shallow compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and type to the 3020M. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 3020M the depths range from 31mm to 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm.
+3 More reasons for
When compared to other personal computers of a similar age and type to the 3020M, the weight of the DELL 3020M of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest. The lightest similar spec personal computer that has been around for a comparable time to the 3020M is 38g heavy, the heaviest is 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg.
The width of the DELL 3020M of only 36 millimeters is one of the narrowest amongst personal computers of a similar type and age to the 3020M. The average width of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 3020M is 180mm.
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.
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.
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.
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.
+13 More reasons against
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).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the personal computers of this age and type the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB. At only 500 gigabytes, the DELL 3020M has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the 3020M.
Personal computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99) (1TB).
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
PCs that came out more than a year ago have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB. When compared to other desktop computers of this age and type that we have assessed, the maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of the DELL 3020M of only 1.024 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the DELL 3020M is more than most similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this DELL computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The DELL 3020M is a two USB 3.0 port personal computer.
Only One DisplayPort
The DELL 3020M is a one DisplayPort computer. Most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of PCs of this type and age range from 2GB to 260GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the DELL 3020M has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 3020M.
Quite Small Processor Cache
With a processor cache of only 6 megabytes, the DELL 3020M has one of the smaller processor caches amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average processor cache of PCs of this type and age is 6.6MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most computers of this age and spec have between four and seven processor threads, including the DELL 3020M which has four processor threads.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 3020M the memory clock speeds range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz. With a memory clock speed of only 1,600 megahertz, the DELL 3020M has one of the slower memory clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
With a system bus data transfer rate of only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the DELL 3020M has a fairly low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year. Across all the desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the 3020M the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3 gigahertz, the DELL 3020M has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst personal computers of this age. The average maximum turbo frequency of computers of a similar age and type to the 3020M is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL 3020M
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer was released over a year ago.
Average Internal Memory
The DELL 3020M has a pretty standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 3020M.
If this medium processor core desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the Aspire TC-705 (£539.00) (12GB) both from Acer.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL 3020M has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the 3020M.
If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99) (1TB).
