12 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.
Medium processor core personal computers produced by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.
SSD Storage Medium
The OptiPlex 9020 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it. Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to 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.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all PCs of this spec and age.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of PC.
If the storage speed of this computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Zotac ZBOX PI320 ($189.26) (Flash and higher rated), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (Flash and higher rated).
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many computers of a similar age and spec to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on desktop computers of this spec and age.
+7 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 9020 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
The OptiPlex 9020 is a two DisplayPort desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the OptiPlex 9020 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on desktop computers of this age and spec.
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is fairly shallow (only 312 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020. The depths of PCs that were released one year ago range from 31mm to 590mm.
The OptiPlex 9020 is one of the narrower computers of this age and spec (only 93 millimeters) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 the widths range from 33mm to 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.
3 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 128 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a very small total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020. PCs that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 800GB.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is a one 3.5" bay PC.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this personal computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The OptiPlex 9020 has a relatively average processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020.
Average Internal Memory
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire TC-705 (12GB).
