9 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
On average DELL medium processor core PCs have good ratings as do all PCs built by DELL.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that have been available for more than a year.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the computers that have been available for more than a year. This personal computer is a three PCI Express x1 slot personal computer compared to most of the medium processor core PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3020 which only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most PCs of this age and type have between one and three 5.25" bays, including the DELL OptiPlex 3020 which has two 5.25" bays.
+4 More reasons for
The OptiPlex 3020 is fairly shallow (only 176 millimeters) compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. The shallowest PC that has been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 is 31mm deep and the deepest is 590mm.
Personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020 have weights of between 38g and 100kg. When compared to other medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020, the DELL OptiPlex 3020's weight of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest.
With a width of only 36 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020 is one of the narrowest desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 3020 amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. The average width of personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 is 180mm.
5 Reasons Against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 2 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3020 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3020. The processor clock speeds of PCs of this spec and age range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If this desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the EliteDesk 800 G1 ($451.81) (2.2GHz), or the 800 G2 ($549.99) (2.5GHz) both from HP which is also cheaper.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been available for more than a year. 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.
It may also be worth considering one of the other HDD desktop computers currently available including a cheaper PC such as the Fujitsu P420 E85+, or the DELL OptiPlex 7010 or you might consider a higher scoring PC such as the HP 400 ($329.99).
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers that came out around the same time as it.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the DELL OptiPlex 3020 is more than most personal computers of this type and age. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3020 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. The OptiPlex 3020 has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency (only 3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020.
4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when DELL released the OptiPlex 3020.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a pretty average total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020.
We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers to this computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the Fujitsu P420 E85+ is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo H50 (1TB) which is also cheaper.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other PCs that were launched more than a year ago.
We compared this personal computer to all the other 500GB hard drive capacity desktop computers and we think cheaper PCs such as the Fujitsu P420 E85+ is also worth considering.
If this medium processor core personal computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo H50 (1TB and cheaper).
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that have been available for more than a year.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4GB memory desktop computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the Fujitsu P420 E85+.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 270 (6GB) which is also cheaper.
