10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The OptiPlex 9020 is a two PCI Express x16 slot desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020 only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is a two DisplayPort computer. Most of the other PCs of this type and age have between one and three DisplayPorts.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 9020 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Eight Processor Threads
Most of the other comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 only have between four and seven processor threads, however the OptiPlex 9020 has eight processor threads.
Quite Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago. The processor caches of computers of this age and type range from 2MB to 10MB.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 9020. The maximum internal memory of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 2GB to 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The OptiPlex 9020 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
Medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago have depths of between 31mm and 590mm. At only 312 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020.
With a width of only 93 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020. Medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago have widths of between 33mm and 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The OptiPlex 9020 has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on similar spec computers 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 the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini ($882.55) (SSD).
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Across all the medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst computers of this age.
If this medium processor core desktop computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP Z240 ($1,211.00) (1TB).
Only One 3.5" Bay
Most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year have between one and six 3.5" bays, including the OptiPlex 9020 which has one 3.5" bay.
+2 More reasons against
Only One 5.25" Bay
The OptiPlex 9020 is a one 5.25" bay computer.
4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when DELL released the OptiPlex 9020.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020.
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the 800 G2 ($699.95) (1TB), or the Z240 ($1,030.98) (1TB) both from HP.
