This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on PCs of this spec and age.
Medium processor core personal computers manufactured by DELL have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good ratings across its entire range.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The smallest internal memory of comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020M is 2GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8GB. At 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020M has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020M.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on similar spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar age and type to it.
+4 More reasons for
Desktop computers of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 3020M have depths of between 31mm and 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm. At only 176 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020M is quite shallow compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020M.
The weight of the DELL OptiPlex 3020M of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest amongst personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020M. The weights of desktop computers that were released one year ago range from 38g to 23kg.
The average width of comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020M is 180mm, and the widths range from 33mm to 510mm. With a width of only 36 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020M is very narrow compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020M.
10 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The OptiPlex 3020M is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The processor clock speeds of personal computers of this age and type range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 2 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 3020M has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age. 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.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
The OptiPlex 3020M has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. Personal computers that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020M have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 890GB.
+7 More reasons against
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the OptiPlex 3020M is more than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this desktop computer.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most desktop computers of this spec and age have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the OptiPlex 3020M which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Only One DisplayPort
The DELL OptiPlex 3020M is a one DisplayPort personal computer. Most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020M have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Only One Storage Drive
Most personal computers of this spec and age have between one and five storage drives, including the OptiPlex 3020M which has one storage drive.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The slowest maximum turbo frequency of computers of this spec and age is 1.8GHz and the fastest is 4.4GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3020M has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020M.
