Based on 808 user and expert reviews, DELL has good reviews for its computers. DELL also has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core computers compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,200 megahertz, the Precision T1700 MT has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age. Across all the computers that were released more than two years ago the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 850MHz to 1,300MHz.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of personal computers of this age and spec is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8GB. The DELL Precision T1700 MT has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age.
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on computers of this type and age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers of this spec and age.
+4 More reasons for
Two 5.25" Bays
Most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Precision T1700 MT have between one and two 5.25" bays, including the DELL Precision T1700 MT which has two 5.25" bays.
Quite Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the Precision T1700 MT has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700 MT. Similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700 MT have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The Precision T1700 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of this spec and age. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been available for more than two years.
7 Reasons Against
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The average discrete graphics adapter memory of medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago is 2TB. At only 1,024 gigabyte, the Precision T1700 MT has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs that have been on the market 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.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 MT has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the Precision T1700 MT. Across all the personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Precision T1700 MT the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 2TB.
If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£292.59) (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The average discrete graphics adapter memory of medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 MT is 2GB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1,024 megabyte, the DELL Precision T1700 MT has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
+4 More reasons against
Only One DisplayPort
The Precision T1700 MT is a one DisplayPort computer.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Precision T1700 MT have between four and seven processor threads, including the Precision T1700 MT which has four processor threads.
Only Two 3.5" Bays
Most personal computers of this type and age have between one and eight 3.5" bays, including the Precision T1700 MT which has two 3.5" bays.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700 MT
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this medium processor core computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Precision T1700 MT has a pretty typical processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700 MT.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (3.3GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 MT has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec computers that were launched more than two years ago.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
