Medium processor core computers produced by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just medium processor core computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This 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 around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers of this age and spec.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on computers that have been available for more than a year.
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 desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020M the depths range from 31mm to 760mm, and the average depth is 350mm. With a depth of only 176 millimeters, the DELL OptiPlex 3020M is one of the shallower desktop computers of this age and type amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.
+3 More reasons for
The average weight of comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020M is 7.6kg, and the weights range from 38g to 23kg. The OptiPlex 3020M is one of the lightest medium processor core computers that were released one year ago (only 1.3 kilograms) amongst similar spec computers of this age.
The narrowest personal computer of this spec and age is 33mm wide, the widest is 510mm, and the average width is 190mm. With a width of only 36 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020M is one of the narrowest medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020M amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
11 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most computers of this age and type have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the OptiPlex 3020M which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of personal computers of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 3020M is 3.1GHz. The OptiPlex 3020M has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (2.2GHz).
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a similar time to 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.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu W530 (£127.99) (SSD).
Very Small Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020M is 2GB and the biggest is 64GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020M has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age.
+8 More reasons against
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
The hard drive capacity of personal computers of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 3020M range from 1GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 860GB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020M has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020M.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on personal computers of this age and type.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the OptiPlex 3020M is more than most similar spec personal computers that have been available for more than a year. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 3020M is a two USB 3.0 port personal computer.
Only One DisplayPort
The OptiPlex 3020M is a one DisplayPort desktop computer. Most of the other PCs of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 3020M have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Only One Storage Drive
The DELL OptiPlex 3020M is a one storage drive personal computer. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020M have between one and five storage drives.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The OptiPlex 3020M has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3 gigahertz) amongst comparable spec computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020M
Released Over a Year Ago
DELL released the OptiPlex 3020M over a year ago.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020M has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF (1TB).
