Chart Edit

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a newer internal memory type than most few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This DELL desktop computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most few processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. Across all few processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM and the best is DDR4-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a greater number of included cables than most similar spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago. This personal computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Shallow

At only 176 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is fairly shallow compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro. Comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro have depths of between 33mm and 1,100mm, and the average depth is 270mm.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Desktop computers of this spec and age have widths of between 29mm and 660mm, and the average width is 180mm. When compared to other personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro's width of only 36 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is 100MHz and the fastest is 690MHz. The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (only 200 megahertz) amongst similar spec PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on 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.

We compared this personal computer to all the other HDD personal computers and we think the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229962_price], and the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3068674_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a PC with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
