8 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its PCs

Medium processor core personal computers built by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The OptiPlex 3020 SFF has a faster storage speed than most computers of this type and age. This DELL PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 3020 SFF.

The worst storage speed across comparable types of desktop computer is HDD.

Alternative SSD computers currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper desktop computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3099420_price].

15 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The OptiPlex 3020 SFF is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

When compared to other personal computers of this spec and age, the total storage capacity of the OptiPlex 3020 SFF of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The average total storage capacity of similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 SFF is 840GB.

We compared all the other 128GB total storage capacity desktop computers to this computer and we think cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 7020 MT[plb_2788976_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Lenovo M91p[plb_2915922_price] (250GB and cheaper).
