13 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

DELL has good average ratings for its medium processor cores personal computers as well as across its entire desktop computer range compared to other manufacturers.

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency (max)

With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max) of 1,200 megahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s amongst medium processor cores personal computers of this age. Computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)s of between 500MHz and 1,300MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Processor Frequency

The average processor frequency of medium processor cores personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 is 3.1GHz. With a processor frequency of 3.6 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a quite fast processor frequency compared to most of the other medium processor cores personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.

If you want a faster processor frequency then you might also want to consider the HP 440 MT (3.7GHz and higher rated).

SSD Storage Media

The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a faster storage speed than most desktop computers of this type and age. This personal computer has an SSD storage media, whereas most PCs of a comparable type and age to 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 PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor cores personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.

An HDD storage media is the worst storage speed across comparable types of PC.

We compared all the other SSD personal computers to this personal computer and we think the Zotac ZBOX BI323 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Quite Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has one of the bigger internal memorys amongst PCs of this age. The smallest internal memory of PCs that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 is 2GB and the biggest is 32GB.

If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Asus M52AD (12GB and higher rated).

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
