17 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

We calculated the average reviews for all DELL desktop computers and also specifically for DELL medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases DELL had good reviews.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on PCs of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Personal computers of this type and age have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 850MHz and 860,000MHz. 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 desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The slowest memory clock speed supported by processor of PCs of this age and spec is 800MHz, the fastest is 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,300MHz. When compared to other comparable spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Precision T1700 that we have assessed, the memory clock speed supported by processor of the DELL Precision T1700 of 1,600 megahertz is one of the fastest.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Precision T1700 has a faster storage speed than most PCs of a similar age and spec to it. This DELL desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most comparable spec personal computers that were released 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.

This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Precision T1700.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer is HDD.

We compared all the other SSD computers to this personal computer and we think the DELL Precision T1700 SFF (£597.39) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The Precision T1700 has a fairly big internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar type and age to the Precision T1700. PCs of this type and age have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB.

PCs with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the Apple Mac Pro (12GB).

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Six USB 2.0 Ports

Most computers of this age and spec have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Precision T1700 which has six USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Eight Processor Threads

The DELL Precision T1700 is a eight processor thread desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Precision T1700 only have between four and seven processor threads.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache

The Precision T1700 has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the personal computers of this spec and age the processor caches range from 0.51MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.8MB.

Chart Edit

Four USB 3.0 Ports

The Precision T1700 is a four USB 3.0 port computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

Across all the personal computers of this spec and age the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. The Precision T1700 has a quite big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Precision T1700.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Precision T1700 is more than most desktop computers of this type and age. This computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Precision T1700.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Precision T1700 is more than most PCs of this age and type. This DELL PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The DELL Precision T1700 has a greater number of included cables than most similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This personal computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

At only 256 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Precision T1700. The total storage capacity of PCs of this age and spec range from 32GB to 3TB.

Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Fujitsu P420 E85+ (500GB).
