11 Reasons For
Based on 1,204 owner and expert reviews, DELL has good reviews for its computers. DELL also has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core personal computers compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many desktop 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 typical of many PCs that were launched around the same time as it.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
Most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were released more than a year ago only have one PCI Express x16 slot, however the DELL OptiPlex 7020 has two PCI Express x16 slots.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
+6 More reasons for
The OptiPlex 7020 is a two DisplayPort PC.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most personal computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 7020 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the OptiPlex 7020 which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most desktop computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 7020 have between one and three 5.25" bays, including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 which has two 5.25" bays.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the DELL OptiPlex 7020 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it. This computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 7020.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 7020 has a greater number of memory slots than most comparable spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020.
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).
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the PCs of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 7020 the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB. At only 1.024 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020.
+2 More reasons against
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 7020 is a one PCI Express x1 slot desktop computer. Most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 7020 have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The OptiPlex 7020 has a pretty typical processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3.3GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available including the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price] which is cheaper.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The OptiPlex 7020 has a relatively standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 7020.
We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity personal computers to this personal computer and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price] is also worth considering.
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Asus M32AD[plb_2803229_price] (1TB), the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (1TB), or the DELL 270[plb_3068921_price] (1TB).
