On average DELL medium processor core computers have good reviews as do all personal computers manufactured by DELL.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers of this type and age.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
The depths of similar spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro range from 31mm to 760mm, and the average depth is 350mm. The OptiPlex 3020 Micro is one of the shallower desktop computers that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro (only 176 millimeters) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.
+3 More reasons for
The lightest computer of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is 38g heavy, the heaviest is 23kg, and the average weight is 7.6kg. At only 1.3 kilograms, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro is very light compared to most of the other computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
Desktop computers of this type and age have widths of between 33mm and 510mm. At only 36 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is very narrow compared to most of the other computers of this age and spec.
5 Reasons Against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Across all the similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If this DELL personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (2.2GHz) which is also cheaper.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec PCs that have been around for 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.
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on personal computers that are a similar age to it.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of this age and type. This computer has a 1x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on PCs of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
At only 3 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year. The slowest maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is 1.8GHz, the fastest is 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro
Released Over a Year Ago
DELL released the OptiPlex 3020 Micro over a year ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
If this computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP 400 G2.5 SFF (£359.99) (1TB and cheaper), or the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99) (1TB and cheaper).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a pretty standard internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
We compared this PC to all the other 4GB memory personal computers and we think the HP Z230, and the Lenovo M93p SFF which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB), or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (8GB) which is also cheaper.
