+4 More reasons for
At only 240 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 is quite shallow compared to most of the other computers that were released more than a year ago. The shallowest comparable spec desktop computer that has been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 is 31mm deep, the deepest is 590mm, and the average depth is 360mm.
The average weight of personal computers that were launched more than a year ago is 7.7kg. At only 3.3 kilograms, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 is fairly light compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.
The average width of PCs that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 is 180mm, and the widths range from 33mm to 510mm. When compared to other medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 that we have assessed, the width of the OptiPlex 9020 of only 65 millimeters is one of the narrowest.
5 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers of this type 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.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many computers that are a comparable age to it.
Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has one of the slowest hard drive speeds (only 5,400 revolutions per minute) amongst medium processor core PCs of this age. The hard drive speeds of medium processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the OptiPlex 9020 is more than most comparable spec computers that came out around the same time as 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.
+2 More reasons against
Only One 3.5" Bay
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is a one 3.5" bay PC.
5 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
At 3 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.
If you want a personal computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Lenovo M91p (3.1GHz) which is also cheaper.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
Other 8GB memory desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper personal computers such as the HP Z230, or the DELL OptiPlex 9020.
If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire TC-705 (12GB) which is also cheaper.
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago.
We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity computers to this desktop computer and we think cheaper computers such as the ProDesk 600 G1, and the EliteDesk 800 G1 ($320.00) both from HP is also worth considering.
The OptiPlex 9020 has a relatively average hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
We compared this computer to all the other 500GB hard drive capacity computers and we think cheaper computers such as the ProDesk 600 G1, and the EliteDesk 800 G1 ($320.00) both from HP is also worth considering.
If this computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo X310 (1TB and cheaper).
