We calculated the average reviews for all DELL PCs and also specifically for DELL medium processor core computers and found that in both cases DELL had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700 is 500MHz and the fastest is 1,400MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Precision T1700 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst similar spec PCs of this age.
SSD Storage Medium
The Precision T1700 has a faster storage speed than most recently released comparable spec personal computers. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most personal computers that came out around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed amongst all personal computers that have been around for the last year.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of computer.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on new medium processor core computers.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
+6 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
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 medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The DELL Precision T1700 is a six USB 2.0 port computer. Most of the other new personal computers have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the DELL Precision T1700 is more than most new medium processor core computers. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on new medium processor core computers.
9 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of latest computers range from 10GB/s to 77GB/s.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst computers of this age. Across all the comparable spec personal computers that were released in the last year the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 1.6TB.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of recently released medium processor core computers is 810GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.5TB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest comparable spec computers.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the HP 400 G2 (£449.98) (500GB), or the Acer Veriton X2640G (£292.80) (500GB).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on recently released medium processor core computers.
+6 More reasons against
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This desktop computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most commonly supported Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The DELL Precision T1700 is a one PCI Express x1 slot PC. Most of the other medium processor core computers that were released in the last year have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
Only One PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slot
Most latest medium processor core computers have between one and two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots, including the DELL Precision T1700 which has one PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
The slowest memory clock speed of personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 is 1,000MHz and the fastest is 2,400MHz. With a memory clock speed of only 1,600 megahertz, the DELL Precision T1700 has one of the slowest memory clock speeds amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
Quite Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
At only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the DELL Precision T1700 has a very low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers. The average system bus data transfer rate of new medium processor core computers is 7.1GT/s.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700
Released Nine Months Ago
This PC has been on the market for nine months.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the Precision T1700 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other new similar spec desktop computers.
If this DELL computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the 800 G2 (£539.00) (3.4GHz), or the Z240 SFF (£770.28) (3.4GHz) both from HP or the DELL T3620 (£774.03) (3.4GHz).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for the last year.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the 550-270na (£679.95) (12GB), or the 440 (£1,726.37) (16GB) both from HP or the DELL Precision T5810 (£1,438.99) (16GB).
