Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 Ports

The OptiPlex 9020 is a four USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

The number of included cables found on the OptiPlex 9020 is more than most computers of a comparable type and age to it. This DELL computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.

Chart Edit

Shallow

The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is fairly shallow (only 240 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020. Across all the desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 the depths range from 33mm to 690mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 3.3 kilograms, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 is quite light compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 9020. Medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 have weights of between 250g and 24kg, and the average weight is 8.2kg.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 2.9 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. Across all the computers that were released more than two years ago the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2.9GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3030 (£442.80) (3GHz and cheaper), or the Fujitsu P420 E85+ (3GHz and cheaper).

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers that came out more than two years ago. 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.

Chart Edit

Very Small Hard Drive Capacity

At only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age. The smallest hard drive capacity of computers that were released more than two years ago is 320GB, the biggest is 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the HP Z230 (£454.80) (1TB) which is also higher rated.

Great PC if you do not planing on upgrading. I am extremely disappointed...

Good, well built machine. Workstation ready
Easy to setup and maintain. Simple case that's easy to get into to work on
Have not had chance to use
Proprietary, you cannot upgrade the power supply meaning you cannot add ANYTHING extra to the tower except 2 more drives. It comes with a low wage power supply that you can only purchase from this com
None that I can find. Though an internal USB port would be nice
