8 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of this type and age. 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.
Quite Small Internal Memory
The average internal memory of computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 MT is 7.5GB. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 MT that we have assessed, the internal memory of the OptiPlex 9020 MT of only 4 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At only 1,150 megahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 850MHz, the fastest is 860,000MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 3,200MHz.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
Medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT have hard drive capacity of between 320GB and 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst PCs of this age.
Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Lenovo Thinkstation P500 (£1,454.22) (1TB).
+5 More reasons against
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of desktop computers of this age and spec is 1GB and the biggest is 2GB. When compared to other PCs of this spec and age that we have checked, the OptiPlex 9020 MT's maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 MT is a one PCI Express x1 slot PC.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a fairly small processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT. The average processor cache of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 6.8MB, and the processor caches range from 0.51MB to 10MB.
