Across all the medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago the hard drive capacity range from 320GB to 2TB.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The total storage capacity of similar spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago range from 32GB to 2.3TB.
+7 More reasons against
Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed
Personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 MT have hard drive speeds of between 5,400 RPM and 7,200 RPM. The hard drive speed of the OptiPlex 9020 MT of only 5,400 revolutions per minute is one of the slowest amongst personal computers of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
Very Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
With a hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a fairly small hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type. The smallest hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT is 500GB and the biggest is 2TB.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The OptiPlex 9020 MT has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst computers of this age. Similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 1.8GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 1.5GB.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT is a one PCI Express x1 slot PC.
Quite Small Processor Cache
