Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020. The average processor clock speed of personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 is 3.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.

We compared all the other HDD desktop computers to this desktop computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3106865_price] (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
