We calculated the average reviews for all DELL desktop computers 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 desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The DELL Precision T1700 MT has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,200 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700 MT is 850MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz.
Quite Big Internal Memory
Across all the PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Precision T1700 MT the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB. With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 MT has one of the bigger internal memory amongst desktop computers of this age.
Has One Cable Included
The number of included cables found on the Precision T1700 MT is more than most personal computers of this age and type. This computer has an AC cable included, which is the most frequently found cable included found on medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of this spec and age.
+8 More reasons for
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 desktop computers of this age and spec.
Two 5.25" Bays
The DELL Precision T1700 MT is a two 5.25" bay computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for more than two years have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Eight Processor Threads
The Precision T1700 MT is a eight processor thread desktop computer.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The DELL Precision T1700 MT has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Across all the personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the Precision T1700 MT the processor caches range from 0.51MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB.
Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
At 2,048 megabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 MT has a quite big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers that have been around for more than two years. Desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Precision T1700 MT have discrete graphics adapter memory of between 510MB and 6.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 2GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the DELL Precision T1700 MT is more than most computers of this type and age. This DELL computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on desktop computers of this spec and age.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This desktop computer supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age.
4 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal 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.
If you want a desktop computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which is also higher rated.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The hard drive capacity of comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Precision T1700 MT range from 320GB to 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 800GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 MT has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for a similar time to the Precision T1700 MT.
If you want a desktop computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£295.17) (1TB) which also has a higher rating.
Only One DisplayPort
The Precision T1700 MT is a one DisplayPort computer.
Only Two 3.5" Bays
Most medium processor core computers that have been around for more than two years have between one and eight 3.5" bays, including the Precision T1700 MT which has two 3.5" bays.
+1 More reason against
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700 MT
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when DELL released the Precision T1700 MT.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the Precision T1700 MT has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out more than two years ago.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu Celsius W530 (3.5GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 MT has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Precision T1700 MT.
If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Apple Mac Pro (£2,289.06) (512GB).
