9 Reasons For

DELL PCs Have Good Reviews

Chart Edit

Four Processor Threads

The DELL OptiPlex 3020 is a four processor thread desktop computer. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020 only have between one and three processor threads.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the OptiPlex 3020 is more than most similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by few processor core computers that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

The number of included cables found on the OptiPlex 3020 is more than most personal computers of a similar type and age to it. This computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on few processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years. 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.

Alternative HDD PCs currently available which you might also want to consider include the Lenovo Q190 (£179.99) which is cheaper.

4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when DELL released the OptiPlex 3020.

Average Total Storage Capacity

The OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs and we think cheaper computers such as the Lenovo Q190 (£179.99) is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U (£199.98) (1TB) which also has a higher rating.

Average Hard Drive Capacity

With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been available for more than two years.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB hard drive capacity computers currently available including the Lenovo Q190 (£179.99) which is cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020.

There are a number of alternative 4GB memory computers currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper computers such as the Lenovo Q190 (£179.99).

If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (8GB and cheaper).
