5 Reasons Against

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 is 2TB, and the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 1GB to 6.2TB. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020, the DELL OptiPlex 9020's discrete graphics adapter memory of only 2 gigabytes is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

Only One Graphics Adapter DisplayPort

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on comparable spec PCs that have been around for 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.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative HDD computers currently available including the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_1589712_price], or the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2457301_price] which is cheaper.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229911_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

Medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 3TB. At only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity computers currently available including the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_1589712_price], or the ProDesk 600 SFF[pl_2689934_price] both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2408954_price] which is cheaper.

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
Will not boot have to send back
