This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and type to it.
+5 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as it.
The DELL OptiPlex 7020 has more DisplayPorts than most of the few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020. This personal computer is a two DisplayPort personal computer compared to most of the similar spec desktop computers that were released one year ago which only have one DisplayPort.
Two 5.25" Bays
The OptiPlex 7020 is a two 5.25" bay PC. Most of the other computers of this type and age have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 7020 has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs that have been around for a similar time to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 4x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec computers 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.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative HDD PCs currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer Revo One RL85[plb_3132464_price].
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 1.024 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for more than a year. Few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 16GB.
The OptiPlex 7020 is one of the heavier few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 (9.4 kilograms) amongst few processor core PCs of this age. The weights of computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 range from 140g to 16kg.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020
Released Over a Year Ago
This DELL personal computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.5 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 7020 has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 7020.
