3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs of this type and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 is a six USB 2.0 port PC. Most of the other PCs of this spec and age have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
+3 More reasons for
The OptiPlex 3020 is quite shallow (only 312 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020. Across all the PCs of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020 the depths range from 31mm to 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm.
At only 93 millimeters, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type. Personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020 have widths of between 33mm and 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.
5 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been around for a similar time 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 computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini[plb_3078512_price] (SSD).
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The OptiPlex 3020 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory (only 1,024 megabyte) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 the discrete graphics adapter memory range from 4.9MB to 8.2GB.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the OptiPlex 3020 is more than most comparable spec personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The OptiPlex 3020 is a one 3.5" bay PC. Most of the other personal computers of this age and spec have between one and six 3.5" bays.
+2 More reasons against
Only One 5.25" Bay
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 is a one 5.25" bay desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and three 5.25" bays.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this personal computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The OptiPlex 3020 has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
Desktop computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the HP 800 G2[plb_3797297_price] (3.4GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the DELL PowerEdge T20[plb_2747980_price] (1TB and higher rated).
+3 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020.
Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth looking at include the DELL PowerEdge T20[plb_2747980_price] (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year.
If this computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 270[plb_3068921_price] (6GB).
