We calculated the average ratings for all DELL desktop computers and also specifically for DELL medium processor core computers and found that in both cases DELL had good ratings.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The DELL OptiPlex 7020 is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC. Most of the other medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The DELL OptiPlex 7020 has more PCI Express x16 slots than most of the comparable spec computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020. Most of the medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 only have one PCI Express x16 slot, however this personal computer has two PCI Express x16 slots.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
+8 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago.
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 medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
Most personal computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 7020 have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 which has two DisplayPorts.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 7020 is a four USB 3.0 port PC.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 7020 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago. This DELL computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020.
The average depth of desktop computers of this age and spec is 350mm. The DELL OptiPlex 7020 is one of the shallower PCs that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 (only 312 millimeters) amongst PCs of this age.
Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for more than a year the widths range from 33mm to 510mm. At only 93 millimeters, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 is quite narrow compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 7020.
4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable age and type 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.
We compared this PC to all the other HDD PCs and we think the M91p (£426.50), and the ThinkCentre M73 Tiny both from Lenovo or the HP 280 G1 (£343.19) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The OptiPlex 7020 is a one 3.5" bay personal computer.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The OptiPlex 7020 is a one 5.25" bay computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 7020 have between one and two 5.25" bays.
+1 More reason against
5 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 DELL OptiPlex 7020 has a relatively standard processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3.3GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Tiny.
If you would prefer a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the EliteDesk 800 G1 (£365.00) (3.4GHz and cheaper), or the ProDesk 600 SFF (£334.95) (3.5GHz and cheaper) both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 7010 (£379.99) (3.4GHz and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the OptiPlex 7020 has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec.
Alternative 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available that you might also want to look at include the Acer Aspire XC-605 (£399.00) which is cheaper.
Desktop computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth considering include the Lenovo H50 (£379.97) (2TB and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the Acer Aspire XC-605 (£399.00).
Personal computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Aspire T3-710 (£461.98) (2TB), or the Aspire X3-710 (£489.12) (2TB) both from Acer or the Asus K31AD (£722.38) (2TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other computers that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020.
There are a number of alternative 8GB memory personal computers currently available which you might want to look at including cheaper personal computers such as the Acer Aspire XC-605 (£399.00).
If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Asus K31AD (£722.38) (12GB), or the DELL Inspiron 3847 (£470.00) (16GB).
