Medium processor core computers manufactured by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just medium processor core computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The OptiPlex 7020 SFF has more PCI Express x16 slots than most of the comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 7020 SFF. This computer is a two PCI Express x16 slot computer compared to most of the comparable spec computers that were released one year ago which only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
+5 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the OptiPlex 7020 SFF is more than most comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on PCs of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 7020 SFF.
Across all the medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 7020 SFF the depths range from 31mm to 760mm, and the average depth is 350mm. At only 312 millimeters, the OptiPlex 7020 SFF is quite shallow compared to most of the other computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 SFF.
The average width of comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 SFF is 190mm. The OptiPlex 7020 SFF is quite narrow (only 93 millimeters) compared to most of the other personal computers that were released one year ago.
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs that are a comparable age to it. 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.
If you want a computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the Fujitsu W530 (SSD).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The OptiPlex 7020 SFF is a one 3.5" bay computer.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when DELL released the OptiPlex 7020 SFF.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 7020 SFF has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 7020 SFF.
PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the HP Z230 (3.4GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 7020 SFF has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
+3 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF has a relatively typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been around for more than a year.
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age.
If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the DELL 270 (6GB).
