13 Reasons For
DELL is one of the superior computer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and DELL also has good ratings for its medium processor core personal computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers that are a similar age to it.
SSD Storage Medium
The OptiPlex 7020 MT has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most personal computers of a similar age and type to it. Most desktop computers that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. 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 in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 7020 MT.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of desktop computer.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other SSD computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price], or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2985619_price] both from DELL.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 MT has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 7020 MT. The internal memory of similar spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 MT range from 2GB to 64GB.
If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price] (10GB).
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and type.
+8 More reasons for
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The OptiPlex 7020 MT is a two PCI Express x16 slot PC.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on PCs of this spec and age.
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 MT which has two DisplayPorts.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 7020 MT is a six USB 2.0 port PC. Most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 7020 MT have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 7020 MT have between one and three 5.25" bays, including the OptiPlex 7020 MT which has two 5.25" bays.
Supports One Case Placement
The OptiPlex 7020 MT has a greater number of placements than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by desktop computers that were released more than a year ago.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 7020 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it. This DELL computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on comparable spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 MT.
4 Reasons Against
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1 gigabyte, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 MT has one of the smallest discrete graphics adapter memory capacities amongst computers of this age. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of comparable spec computers that were released more than a year ago is 1.8TB.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The DELL OptiPlex 7020 MT has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of computers of this age and spec is 4GB, the biggest is 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 840GB.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 128GB total storage capacity PCs currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 9020 SFF[plb_2414879_price] which is cheaper.
If this DELL computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Fujitsu D556[plb_3186790_price] (256GB and cheaper), or the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2793217_price] (500GB and cheaper).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 MT have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 930GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 MT has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 MT.
If this DELL personal computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at 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).
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At only 1.024 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 MT has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of comparable spec computers that were released one year ago range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB.
+1 More reason against
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020 MT
Released Over a Year Ago
This computer was released over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 7020 MT has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that came out more than a year ago.
We compared this PC to all the other 3.3GHz processor clock speed desktop computers and we think the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2556629_price], and the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] both from DELL which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you want a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (3.4GHz and cheaper).
