The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantity computer.

Chart Edit

DELL Has Good PC Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all DELL computers and also specifically for DELL medium processor cores computers and found that in both cases DELL had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

SSD Storage Media

The OptiPlex 9020 has a faster storage speed than most medium processor cores computers that were launched around the same time as it. This DELL personal computer has an SSD storage media, whereas most PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it have an HDD storage media. 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 personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor cores computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020.

The worst storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer is HDD.

Great PC if you do not planing on upgrading. I am extremely disappointed...

Good, well built machine. Workstation ready
Easy to setup and maintain. Simple case that's easy to get into to work on
Have not had chance to use
Proprietary, you cannot upgrade the power supply meaning you cannot add ANYTHING extra to the tower except 2 more drives. It comes with a low wage power supply that you can only purchase from this com
None that I can find. Though an internal USB port would be nice
Will not boot have to send back
