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 all the other HDD PCs to this computer and we think because of it's better review score, the ProDesk 600 G1[pl_2265595_price], and the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF[pl_2402877_price] both from HP or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_1667245_price] is also worth considering.

4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020 MT

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when DELL released the OptiPlex 3020 MT.

Average Total Storage Capacity

The OptiPlex 3020 MT has a fairly standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs to this desktop computer and we think because of it's better review score, the ProDesk 600 G1[pl_2265595_price], and the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF[pl_2402877_price] both from HP or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_1667245_price] is also worth considering.

If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Zoostorm Intel Celeron 1037U[plb_2784636_price] (1TB) which is also higher rated.

Average Hard Drive Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 MT has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 3020 MT.

There are a number of alternative 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the ProDesk 600 G1[pl_2265595_price], or the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF[pl_2402877_price] both from HP or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_1667245_price].

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 MT has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020 MT.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4GB memory desktop computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the ProDesk 600 G1[pl_2265595_price], or the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF[pl_2402877_price] both from HP or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 SFF[plb_1667245_price].

If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP ProDesk 600[plb_2435689_price] (8GB), or the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2837780_price] (8GB) which also has a higher rating.

To the reviewer complaining it only has VGA. That's not true. There's Displayport as well, which, with an inexpensive adapter will get you HDMI...

Wish I knew this before telling a client to purchase this exact model from newegg. There wasn't a review that listed this issue at time of purchase...

Good performance until you need to get it fixed quick
Inexpensive for what you get, has displayport. Great warranty
There is a proprietary power supply and proprietary power connector on system board. You cant just go to any store to purchase a power supply and install it. This is true for all Optiplex 3020
The proprietary power supply. Dell's at it again
