This personal computer was only released three months ago, so it is likely to use better technology than some of the older personal computers.
DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Personal Computers
We checked the expert and user reviews of hundreds of personal computers to determine an average rating for each computer manufacturer. On average computers made by DELL have good reviews from owners and experts.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on similar spec PCs that came out in the last year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on new few processor core PCs.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many new comparable spec PCs.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
+8 More reasons for
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
Most of the other computers that were released in the last 12 months only have one PCI Express x16 slot, however the OptiPlex 9020 has two PCI Express x16 slots.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most of the other latest few processor core PCs only have between one and five USB 2.0 ports, however the OptiPlex 9020 has six USB 2.0 ports.
The OptiPlex 9020 is a two DisplayPort computer. Most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were released in the last year have between one and two DisplayPorts.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 9020 is a four USB 3.0 port personal computer.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
At 32 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other latest personal computers. The maximum internal memory of newly released few processor core PCs range from 4GB to 64GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 has a greater number of memory slots than most latest comparable spec PCs. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 4x DIMM are also found on this computer.
The widths of few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 range from 34mm to 440mm, and the average width is 170mm. The OptiPlex 9020 is one of the narrower recently released few processor core PCs (only 93 millimeters) amongst desktop computers of this age.
3 Reasons Against
Only 4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
The OptiPlex 9020 supports a better on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version than most few processor core PCs that were released in the last 12 months. This computer supports a 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, whereas most recently released few processor core PCs support a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version.
A 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is in fact the worst supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version amongst all few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
The best supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version amongst similar types of desktop computer is 4.4.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Few processor core PCs that have been around for the last year have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.7GB. At only 1.7 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other newly released desktop computers.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020
Average Processor Clock Speed
The OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly typical processor clock speed (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the HP 400 G3 (£330.97) (3.7GHz), the Lenovo E73 (£278.99) (3.7GHz), or the Acer Veriton X2640G (£328.97) (3.7GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
If this few processor core personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the HP 460-p035na (£359.99) (1TB), or the Acer Veriton X2640G (£324.97) (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
If this personal computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HP 460-p035na (£359.99) (1TB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other new comparable spec PCs.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£299.99) (6GB), or the HP 460-p035na (£359.99) (8GB).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many PCs that were released in the last 12 months. 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.
Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the HP Chromebox (£644.98) (SSD), or the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (£386.98) (SSD).

The 23inch display is nice and sharp, featuring generous viewing angles
Stock performance is more than adequate for office multitasking
Durable build quality
Solid state drive as standard
Touch screen functionality is not available on the standard model
Included mouse and keyboard are lightweight and likely to have a short lifespan
OptiPlex is rather pricey when compared to other office PCs
