14 Reasons For
DELL Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all DELL personal computers and also specifically for DELL medium processor core desktop computers and found that in both cases DELL had good reviews compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on similar spec computers that were released around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other desktop computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of medium processor core desktop computers that have been available for more than a year is 1.3GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. The OptiPlex 9020 has a quite fast processor clock speed (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.
SSD Storage Medium
The OptiPlex 9020 has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most computers that are a similar age 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 actually the best storage speed amongst all personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020.
The worst storage speed across comparable types of PC is HDD.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include 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 desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on personal computers of a comparable spec and age to it.
+9 More reasons for
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
Most of the other computers of this type and age only have one PCI Express x16 slot, however the OptiPlex 9020 has two PCI Express x16 slots.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
At 4 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the medium processor core desktop computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on computers of this type and age.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most commonly found EPEAT compliance on personal computers of this type and age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 9020 is a six USB 2.0 port personal computer.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most medium processor core desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and three 5.25" bays, including the OptiPlex 9020 which has two 5.25" bays.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the OptiPlex 9020 is more than most PCs of a similar type and age to it. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
PCs of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
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 comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020
Released Over a Year Ago
This DELL PC has been on the market for over a year.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a relatively average internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core desktop computers that were released more than a year ago.
Personal computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the Acer Aspire TC-705 (12GB).
