This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of this spec and age.
On average DELL medium processor core PCs have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all computers produced by DELL.
SSD Storage Medium
The DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it. Most medium processor core PCs that came out around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 7020 SFF.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of personal computer.
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
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 PCs that are a comparable age to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on personal computers of this type and age.
+7 More reasons for
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on personal computers of this age and type.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The OptiPlex 7020 SFF has more PCI Express x16 slots than most of the computers that came out more than a year ago. This DELL personal computer is a two PCI Express x16 slot computer compared to most of the similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 SFF which only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
The OptiPlex 7020 SFF is a two DisplayPort computer.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF is more than most desktop computers of this type and age. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on personal computers of this spec and age.
The shallowest desktop computer of this age and spec is 31mm deep, the deepest is 590mm, and the average depth is 360mm. The OptiPlex 7020 SFF is fairly shallow (only 312 millimeters) compared to most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 7020 SFF.
With a width of only 93 millimeters, the OptiPlex 7020 SFF is quite narrow compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were released more than a year ago. The average width of personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 7020 SFF is 180mm.
3 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of medium processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 SFF is 4GB, the biggest is 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 820GB. At only 128 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 7020 SFF.
If this DELL desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the DELL Precision T1700[plb_2556873_price] (256GB and cheaper).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many PCs of this type and age.
Only One 3.5" Bay
Most comparable spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago have between one and six 3.5" bays, including the OptiPlex 7020 SFF which has one 3.5" bay.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF has a fairly average processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 7020 SFF.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 3.3GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the HP ProDesk 600 G1[plb_2319081_price].
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the Veriton M6640G[pl_3133375_price] (3.4GHz), or the Aspire X3-710[pl_3192159_price] (3.4GHz) both from Acer which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB memory personal computers currently available including the HP ProDesk 600 G1[plb_2319081_price] which is cheaper.
If this personal computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire X3-710[plb_3192159_price] (12GB), or the Asus M32AD[plb_2702522_price] (16GB) which is also cheaper.
