10 Reasons For
We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of computers to determine an average rating for each PC brand. On average personal computers made by DELL have good reviews from owners and experts.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers of this age and type.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is 750MHz and the fastest is 1,200MHz. At 1,150 megahertz, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that were released one year ago.
Quite Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The max internal memory supported processors of desktop computers of this age and spec range from 4GB to 64GB. The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors (32 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.
Has One Cable Included
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a greater number of included cables than most few processor core PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it. This desktop computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on personal computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on few processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago.
+5 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on PCs of a similar age and spec to it.
Four Processor Threads
The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has more processor threads than most of the computers that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro. This DELL computer is a four processor thread personal computer compared to most of the similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro which only have between two and three processor threads.
The depths of few processor core PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro range from 22mm to 1,100mm. At only 176 millimeters, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro is fairly shallow compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
The widths of similar spec computers that have been around for more than a year range from 29mm to 660mm, and the average width is 180mm. The width of the OptiPlex 3020 Micro of only 36 millimeters is one of the narrowest amongst few processor core PCs that were released one year ago.
4 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
At only 200 megahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is 100MHz, the fastest is 740MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 310MHz.
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The OptiPlex 3020 Micro is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on personal computers of this age and type. 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.
It may also be worth considering one of the other HDD desktop computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the Asus VC62B[plb_2947678_price].
If you would prefer a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the HP Chromebox[plb_2305242_price] (SSD and cheaper).
Only Has One Memory Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers of this spec and age. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 1x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
+1 More reason against
6 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when DELL released the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
£1.00 Price Increase
The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has increased in price by £1.00 in the last 27 days.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec.
Computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the Asus BP6320[plb_3053675_price] (3.4GHz and cheaper).
+4 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age.
There are a number of alternative 500GB total storage capacity personal computers currently available that you might want to look at including the HP HP 280 G1[plb_2692083_price] which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the HP 300-235na[plb_3818279_price] (1TB), the Asus K31AD[plb_3000518_price] (1TB), or the Lenovo H30[plb_2938487_price] (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a pretty standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.
We compared this PC to all the other 500GB hard drive capacity computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP ProDesk 600 G1[plb_2320478_price] is also worth considering.
If this few processor core personal computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the H50[pl_2845240_price] (1TB), or the H30[pl_2938487_price] (1TB) both from Lenovo or the HP 300-235na[plb_3818279_price] (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
There are a number of other 4GB memory desktop computers currently available that you might want to consider including the HP Pavilion Mini 300[plb_2715894_price] which is cheaper.
Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the Lenovo S500 SFF[plb_3113305_price] (8GB), or the HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF[plb_3016284_price] (8GB) which is also cheaper.
