8 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

DELL is one of the better rated personal computer manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and DELL also has good reviews for its medium processor core personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

Across all the desktop computers of this age and spec the depths range from 31mm to 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm. At only 176 millimeters, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Light

At only 1.3 kilograms, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro is fairly light compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago. The lightest comparable spec desktop computer that has been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is 38g heavy and the heaviest is 100kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

When compared to other desktop computers of this age and type, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro's width of only 36 millimeters is one of the narrowest. The narrowest medium processor core desktop computer that has been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is 33mm wide, the widest is 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.

4 Reasons Against

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

At only 2 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs that were launched more than a year ago. Medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz.

There are a number of alternative 2GHz processor clock speed computers currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (£166.80).

If this DELL desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£353.43) (2.2GHz and higher rated).

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year. 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 also looking at one of the other HDD computers currently available including the DELL Inspiron 3647 (£318.60) which has better reviews; or the HP 280 G1 (£343.19) which is cheaper.

If the storage speed of this desktop computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the OptiPlex 9020 SFF (SSD and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 7020 MT (SSD and cheaper) both from DELL.

Only Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro is more than most desktop computers of this type and age. This computer has a 1x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the desktop computers of this type and age the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz. The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency (only 3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.

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 fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.

If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the DELL PowerEdge T20 (£319.80) (1TB and higher rated) or the Asus M32AD (£356.87) (1TB and cheaper).

Average Hard Drive Capacity

With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for more than a year.

Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth looking at include the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£379.00) (1TB and cheaper) or the DELL PowerEdge T20 (£319.80) (1TB and higher rated).

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.

We compared this PC to all the other 4GB memory PCs and we think cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3020 (£166.80) is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the 270 (£349.99) (6GB), or the OptiPlex 7020 SFF (£478.80) (8GB) both from DELL which is also cheaper.
