L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on desktop computers of this age and type.
+9 More reasons for
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT has more PCI Express x16 slots than most of the similar spec computers that have been available for more than a year. Most of the PCs of this type and age only have one PCI Express x16 slot, however this personal computer has two PCI Express x16 slots.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
The OptiPlex 9020 MT is a two DisplayPort computer.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 9020 MT is a six USB 2.0 port personal computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 MT have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Two 5.25" Bays
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT is a two 5.25" bay PC.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT is a four USB 3.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the OptiPlex 9020 MT is more than most computers of a similar age and type to it. This DELL personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
Has One Memory Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago. This DELL PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on PCs of this age and type. 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 Slow Hard Drive Speed
The hard drive speed of the OptiPlex 9020 MT of only 5,400 revolutions per minute is one of the slowest amongst computers of this age and spec. Medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT have hard drive speeds of between 5,400 RPM and 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 7,100 RPM.
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The OptiPlex 9020 MT has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory (only 1,024 megabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT is 3GB.
Only One Mini DisplayPort
Most computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 MT have between one and three mini DisplayPorts, including the OptiPlex 9020 MT which has one mini DisplayPort.

5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT
Released Over a Year Ago
DELL released the OptiPlex 9020 MT over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.5 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a pretty typical processor clock speed 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.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Asus G20AJ (3.6GHz).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the Aspire TC-705 (£539.00) (12GB) both from Acer.
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the DELL 270 (£349.99) (1TB), or the Alienware X51 (£729.00) (1TB).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a relatively typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
