5 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec. 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 the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price] which is cheaper.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3106865_price] (SSD and higher rated).

Very Small Internal Memory

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.3GB. The DELL OptiPlex 7020 has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

We compared all the other 4GB memory personal computers to this PC and we think the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this medium processor core desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the 270[pl_3068921_price] (6GB), or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2985619_price] (8GB) both from DELL or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (8GB).

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

At only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec. The average hard drive capacity of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 7020 is 930GB.

There are a number of other 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper personal computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price].

If you are looking for a PC with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the DELL Inspiron 3647[plb_3110567_price] (1TB and higher rated).

User Reviews

Reviewed 3 February 2015 by Michael S.
(Verified Purchase)

I own an older Dell Optiplex computer, and it's been rock solid for about 8 years, so that weighed heavily in my decision...

I selected this machine for a couple of reasons. I wanted Win 7 Pro because of its XP mode so I can continue to use an older, very expensive scanner, and I needed a legacy PCI slot
I recently helped a non-tech-savvy person set up a "store bought" PC from another manufacturer, and I was literally appalled at the amount of junkware that was pre-installed on that computer. One item
This Dell arrived with ZERO junkware on it. That made setting it up a pleasure instead of an ordeal
I'm not a power user, and I'm not a gamer, I just wanted a good solid reliable machine for my home business and for my personal use. This one fits the bill nicely
The machine arrived with a bad CDDVD drive, but Dell sent me a replacement quickly with zero hassle
I also found the Dell website somewhat lacking as it made it difficult to find detailed technical specs on their products
