13 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 1,204 expert and user reviews for DELL personal computers and found that on average DELL has good ratings. We also found that DELL has good ratings specifically for its medium processor core personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version

This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The OptiPlex 7020 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. 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.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all personal computers of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 7020.

Amongst comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

Alternative SSD computers currently available which you might also want to consider include a cheaper personal computer such as the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2229911_price], or the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2564215_price] both from HP or you might consider a higher rated personal computer such as the DELL Precision T1700 SFF[plb_2676603_price].

5 Reasons Against

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

The smallest total storage capacity of personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 is 32GB and the biggest is 3TB. When compared to other computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 that we have assessed, the total storage capacity of the DELL OptiPlex 7020 of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 128GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229911_price].

If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2881924_price] (500GB), or the Lenovo M73[plb_3186300_price] (500GB) which is also cheaper.

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
