8 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of this spec and age. 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 personal computers and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL Inspiron 3647[plb_3110567_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a PC with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from DELL.

The OptiPlex 7020 has a quite small hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 7020.

We compared this computer to all the other 500GB hard drive capacity desktop computers and we think the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2793217_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877470_price] (1TB and cheaper), the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (1TB and 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
