5 Reasons Against

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 2 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro. Desktop computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 3020[plb_2457302_price] which is cheaper.

If this DELL personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_3106865_price] (2.2GHz and cheaper), or the 800 G2[pl_3702771_price] (2.5GHz and cheaper) both from HP.

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers of this age and type. 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 PC to all the other HDD desktop computers and we think the 270[pl_3068921_price], and the OptiPlex 7010[pl_2903853_price] both from DELL or the Fujitsu P420 E85+[plb_1666245_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 9020 SFF[plb_2414879_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
