13 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Personal Computers

DELL medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all personal computers DELL is one of the better rated manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers that came out in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of comparable spec desktop computers that came out in the last 12 months is 500MHz, the fastest is 1,400MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. The Precision T1700 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Precision T1700.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Precision T1700 has a faster storage speed than most recently released similar spec personal computers. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core 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 medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.

Amongst comparable types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
