+5 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on desktop computers of this age and type.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most comparable spec PCs that were launched more than a year ago. This DELL desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 SFF.
Desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020 SFF have depths of between 31mm and 590mm. At only 312 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 SFF is fairly shallow 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 SFF.
The narrowest PC of this spec and age is 33mm wide and the widest is 510mm. At only 93 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 SFF is fairly narrow compared to most of the other personal computers that came out more than a year ago.
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers 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.
There are a number of other HDD personal computers currently available which you might want to look at including cheaper personal computers such as the Fujitsu D556[plb_3119835_price], or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price].
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD) both from DELL which is also cheaper.
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The OptiPlex 9020 SFF has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory (only 1,024 megabyte) compared to most of the other personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020 SFF. Medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 SFF have discrete graphics adapter memory of between 4.9MB and 8.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 3GB.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 SFF is a one 3.5" bay computer.
6 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 SFF
Recent Price Drop of £12.10
The price of the OptiPlex 9020 SFF dropped by £12.10 in the last few days.
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer was released over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 SFF has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.
There are a number of alternative 3.3GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available which you might want to look at including the DELL OptiPlex 9020 SFF[plb_2414879_price] which is cheaper.
If this DELL desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (3.4GHz and cheaper).
+4 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 SFF has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price] (10GB and cheaper).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 SFF has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 SFF.
If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2556860_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the Asus M32AD[plb_2803229_price] (1TB and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The OptiPlex 9020 SFF has a fairly average hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 9020 SFF.
If this medium processor core desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2556860_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877470_price] (1TB and cheaper).
