On average DELL medium processor core personal computers have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all PCs built by DELL.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of this type and age.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,200 megahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 is 640MHz, the fastest is 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of personal computers that have been around for more than a year is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.6 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020.
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 personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
+6 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many desktop computers of this type and age.
Supports One Case Placement
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a greater number of placements than most computers of this age and spec. This computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by desktop computers of this spec and age.
Has One Memory Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
4 Reasons Against
Only One Graphics Adapter DisplayPort
The OptiPlex 9020 is a one graphics adapter DisplayPort computer. Most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and three graphics adapter DisplayPorts.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as it. 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.
If you want a computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3020 SFF[pl_2867167_price] (SSD) both from DELL which is also cheaper.
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1,024 megabyte, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 is 4.9MB and the biggest is 8.2GB.
Only One Storage Drive
The OptiPlex 9020 is a one storage drive computer. Most of the other PCs of this type and age have between one and five storage drives.

4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020
Released Over a Year Ago
DELL released the OptiPlex 9020 over a year ago.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price] (10GB) which is also cheaper.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2556860_price] (1TB and cheaper).
+2 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2556860_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.
