Chart Edit

Six USB 2.0 Ports

Chart Edit

Two 5.25" Bays

The DELL OptiPlex 3020 has more 5.25" bays than most of the desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020. Most of the few processor core computers that were released more than two years ago only have one 5.25" bay, however this desktop computer has two 5.25" bays.

Chart Edit

Four Processor Threads

Most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years only have between one and three processor threads, however the OptiPlex 3020 has four processor threads.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the DELL OptiPlex 3020 is more than most few processor core computers that are a comparable age to it. This computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by similar spec personal computers that have been available for more than two years.

2 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers that are a comparable age to 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 the storage speed of this DELL PC is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Shuttle DSA2LS (£148.75) (Flash).
