The narrowest medium processor core desktop computer that has been available for more than a year is 33mm wide and the widest is 510mm. At only 65 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
10 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec. 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.
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has one of the smaller internal memory amongst similar spec PCs of this age. Across all the PCs that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 4GB memory computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2457302_price].
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the DELL 270[plb_3068921_price] (6GB and cheaper).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 930GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2457302_price] which is cheaper.
With a hard drive speed of only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the OptiPlex 9020 has one of the slower hard drive speeds amongst desktop computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 the hard drive speeds range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM.
+7 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 has a greater number of memory slots than most desktop computers that came out around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
Only One 3.5" Bay
Most desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and six 3.5" bays, including the OptiPlex 9020 which has one 3.5" bay.
Very Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
The smallest hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity of PCs of this age and spec is 500GB and the biggest is 2TB. With a hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has one of the smaller hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacities amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The OptiPlex 9020 is a one 5.25" bay computer. Most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and three 5.25" bays.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a quite small maximum internal memory (only 32,768 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020. The average maximum internal memory of similar spec PCs that were released one year ago is 75GB.
