6 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro
Released Over a Year Ago
This few processor core PC was released over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.1 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released more than a year ago.
If you are looking for a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Asus BP6320[plb_3053675_price] (3.4GHz and cheaper).
Average Total Storage Capacity
The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a fairly average total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
We compared this computer to all the other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the HP HP 280 G1[plb_2692083_price] is also worth considering.
If this DELL computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Asus K31ADE[plb_3025428_price] (1TB), the HP 300-235na[plb_3818279_price] (1TB), or the Lenovo H50[plb_2845240_price] (1TB).
+4 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a relatively standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
Alternative 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available that you might want to look at include the HP HP 280 G1[plb_2692083_price] which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the HP 300-235na[plb_3818279_price] (1TB), the Asus K31ADE[plb_3025428_price] (1TB), or the Lenovo H30[plb_2938487_price] (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a relatively standard internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.
We compared this computer to all the other 4GB memory computers and we think the HP HP 280 G1[plb_2692083_price], and the Acer Revo One RL85[plb_2701760_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If this computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo S500 SFF[plb_3113305_price] (8GB and cheaper).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core 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 personal computers and we think the DELL Vostro 3900[plb_3018199_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If the storage speed of this few processor core PC is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP Chromebox[plb_2305242_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
