10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The OptiPlex 9020 is a two PCI Express x16 slot PC.
+7 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on computers of this spec and age.
Most comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the OptiPlex 9020 which has two DisplayPorts.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 9020 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the OptiPlex 9020 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of a comparable age and spec to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it.
6 Reasons Against
Recent Price Increase of £83.47
The price of the OptiPlex 9020 has increased by £83.47 in the last 31 days.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year. 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.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative HDD computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price], or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price].
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from DELL.
Only 2 Audio Output Channel
The OptiPlex 9020 has a 2 audio output channel which is better than the 2.1 audio output channel found on most desktop computers that came out more than a year ago.
This computer's audio output (2) is actually the worst audio output across all PCs that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020.
Across comparable types of computer the best audio output is 8.1.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 is 4.9MB, the biggest is 8.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 3GB. The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has one of the smallest discrete graphics adapter memory (only 1,024 megabyte) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has one of the smaller hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities (only 500 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 have hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities of between 500GB and 2TB, and the average hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity is 900GB.
Only One Storage Drive
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is a one storage drive desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of this type and age have between one and five storage drives.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this desktop computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3.3GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2413133_price], or the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] both from DELL which is cheaper.
If you want a desktop 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).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020.
If you want a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price] (10GB and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 9020.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Asus M32AD[plb_2803229_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877470_price] (1TB and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a pretty average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.
If this PC hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877470_price] (1TB), or the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
