To the reviewer complaining it only has VGA. That's not true. There's Displayport as well, which, with an inexpensive adapter will get you HDMI...

Wish I knew this before telling a client to purchase this exact model from newegg. There wasn't a review that listed this issue at time of purchase...

Good performance until you need to get it fixed quick
Inexpensive for what you get, has displayport. Great warranty
There is a proprietary power supply and proprietary power connector on system board. You cant just go to any store to purchase a power supply and install it. This is true for all Optiplex 3020
The proprietary power supply. Dell's at it again

Intel i3 processor which is not bad. easy to set up. and it's not that bad for the price you pay.

These machines are great. Small form factor, decent specs and amazing price. Just install in an additional 4gb RAM and an SSD drive and you have an inexpensive, fast, reliable family or office PC.
