12 Reasons For
DELL is one of the better rated computer manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and DELL also has good reviews for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on computers of this spec and age.
SSD Storage Medium
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a faster storage speed than most computers that were launched around the same time as it. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to it 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.
This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all personal computers of this type and age.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer.
If you would prefer a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash) which is also higher rated.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has more PCI Express x16 slots than most of the medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020. This desktop computer is a two PCI Express x16 slot personal computer compared to most of the computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 9020 which only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
+7 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that were launched more than a year ago.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 9020 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other computers of this age and spec have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Has One Memory Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers of this age and spec. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.
The average depth of medium processor core computers that came out more than a year ago is 350mm, and the depths range from 31mm to 760mm. At only 312 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
The OptiPlex 9020 is fairly narrow (only 93 millimeters) compared to most of the other computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020. Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 the widths range from 33mm to 510mm.
4 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 770GB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
If you want a PC with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Lenovo M73 (180GB) which is also higher rated.
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 medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Only One 3.5" Bay
Most personal computers of this age and type have between one and seven 3.5" bays, including the DELL OptiPlex 9020 which has one 3.5" bay.
Only One Storage Drive
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is a one storage drive desktop computer. Most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and five storage drives.
