7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Medium processor core personal computers manufactured by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all desktop computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.

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 medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This PC 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.

Chart Edit

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

This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on desktop computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The number of placements supported by the Vostro 3900 is more than most computers of a comparable spec and age to it. This personal computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by comparable spec personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Vostro 3900.

Chart Edit

Short

The average height of personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Vostro 3900 is 300mm. With a height of only 175 millimeters, the Vostro 3900 is fairly short compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Vostro 3900.

Chart Edit

16 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The DELL Vostro 3900 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Vostro 3900 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Price Increase of £16.99

The Vostro 3900 has increased in price by £16.99 in the last 36 days.

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

PCs of this age and spec have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 640MHz and 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the DELL Vostro 3900 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the Vostro 3900 has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for more than a year. The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Vostro 3900 is 10GB/s and the fastest is 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At only 32 gigabytes, the Vostro 3900 has a quite small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Vostro 3900. The max internal memory supported processors of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Vostro 3900 range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 65GB.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago. 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 computer to all the other HDD PCs and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price] is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this DELL personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3106865_price] (SSD) which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Internal Memory

The Vostro 3900 has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The internal memory of computers of this age and spec range from 2GB to 64GB.

We compared this personal computer to all the other 4GB memory personal computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price] is also worth considering.

If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the 270[pl_3068921_price] (6GB), or the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2985619_price] (8GB) both from DELL or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (8GB).

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

At only 500 gigabytes, the Vostro 3900 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the Vostro 3900. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Vostro 3900 the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB.

We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers to this PC and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price] is also worth considering.

If this DELL PC hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877470_price] (1TB), the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (1TB), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (1TB).

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

The average total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year is 840GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the DELL Vostro 3900 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that were released around the same time as the Vostro 3900.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 500GB total storage capacity personal computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2325928_price].

If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2877470_price] (1TB), the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (1TB), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (1TB).

Chart Edit

Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The Vostro 3900 has one of the lower system bus data transfer rates (only 5 Gigatransfers per second) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The lowest system bus data transfer rate of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Vostro 3900 is 5GT/s and the highest is 8GT/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

The maximum turbo frequencies of computers that were released around the same time as the Vostro 3900 range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.4 gigahertz, the Vostro 3900 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

Computers of a comparable type and age to the Vostro 3900 have widths of between 33mm and 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.

2 Other reasons to consider the DELL Vostro 3900

Released Over a Year Ago

DELL released the Vostro 3900 over a year ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 3.2 gigahertz, the DELL Vostro 3900 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Vostro 3900.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available including the DELL PowerEdge T20[plb_2747980_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 SFF[plb_3154175_price] (3.3GHz), or the DELL OptiPlex 7010[plb_2903853_price] (3.4GHz).
