15 Reasons For
DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers
On average DELL medium processor core personal computers have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all personal computers built by DELL.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers of this spec and age.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst PCs of this age. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of personal computers of this age and type is 1.3GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.5 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Alternative 3.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper desktop computers such as the HP 800 G1[plb_2554587_price].
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 400 G1[plb_3068314_price] (3.6GHz), or the Lenovo H50-50[plb_3738189_price] (3.6GHz).
Fairly Big Internal Memory
Across all the personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.3GB. The Precision T1700 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age.
There are a number of alternative 8GB memory computers currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper computers such as the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2395416_price], or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2408953_price] both from DELL.
If you want a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price] (10GB) which is also cheaper.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers that were launched around the same time as it.
+10 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on personal computers of a similar spec and age to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most similar spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the DELL Precision T1700 which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most similar spec PCs that were launched more than a year ago have between one and three 5.25" bays, including the DELL Precision T1700 which has two 5.25" bays.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The processor caches of PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 range from 2MB to 10MB. At 8 megabytes, the Precision T1700 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the Precision T1700 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago. This PC supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by PCs of this spec and age.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the DELL Precision T1700 is more than most computers that have been available for more than a year. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers of this age and spec.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This personal computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many computers that were released more than a year ago.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers of this age and spec. 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.
We compared this desktop computer to all the other HDD desktop computers and we think the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Precision T1700 the discrete graphics adapter memory range from 4.9MB to 8.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 3GB. At only 1,024 megabyte, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Precision T1700 has a fairly average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the Precision T1700.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 1TB hard drive capacity PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2556860_price].
If this DELL computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Alienware X51 R2[plb_2881842_price] (2TB), the Lenovo H50[plb_2963587_price] (2TB), or the Acer Aspire TC-705[plb_3095333_price] (2TB).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Precision T1700 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers that came out more than a year ago.
There are a number of other 1TB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available that you might also want to consider including the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2556860_price] which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Alienware X51 R2[plb_2881842_price] (2TB), the Lenovo H50[plb_2963587_price] (2TB), or the Acer Aspire TC-705[plb_3095333_price] (2TB).
