4 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on 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.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other HDD personal computers and we think cheaper computers such as the EliteDesk 800 G1, and the ProDesk 600 SFF both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the DELL Precision T1700 SFF (SSD and higher rated).

Very Small Hard Drive Capacity

With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst medium processor core PCs of this age. Similar spec personal computers that have been available for more than two years have hard drive capacity of between 320GB and 3TB.

Other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available which you might also want to look at include cheaper desktop computers such as the EliteDesk 800 G1, the EliteDesk 800, or the 800 G1 SFF all from HP.

If this computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP Z230 (1TB and higher rated) or the DELL XPS 8700 (1TB and cheaper), or the Alienware X51 (2TB and cheaper).

User Reviews

Reviewed 3 February 2015 by Michael S.
(Verified Purchase)

I own an older Dell Optiplex computer, and it's been rock solid for about 8 years, so that weighed heavily in my decision...

I selected this machine for a couple of reasons. I wanted Win 7 Pro because of its XP mode so I can continue to use an older, very expensive scanner, and I needed a legacy PCI slot
I recently helped a non-tech-savvy person set up a "store bought" PC from another manufacturer, and I was literally appalled at the amount of junkware that was pre-installed on that computer. One item
This Dell arrived with ZERO junkware on it. That made setting it up a pleasure instead of an ordeal
I'm not a power user, and I'm not a gamer, I just wanted a good solid reliable machine for my home business and for my personal use. This one fits the bill nicely
The machine arrived with a bad CDDVD drive, but Dell sent me a replacement quickly with zero hassle
I also found the Dell website somewhat lacking as it made it difficult to find detailed technical specs on their products
