We checked 808 owner and expert reviews for DELL computers and found that on average DELL has good reviews. We also found that DELL has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and type.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 MT is 1.3GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. At 3.5 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 600 SFF (3.6GHz).
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The OptiPlex 9020 MT is a two PCI Express x16 slot computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020 MT only have one PCI Express x16 slot.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
+5 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT is 33GB. The OptiPlex 9020 MT has a fairly big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were released one year ago.
Has One Memory Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
6 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is Hybrid-HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on PCs that have been around for more than a year. 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 desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed
Desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT have hard drive speeds of between 5,400 RPM and 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 7,100 RPM. With a hard drive speed of only 5,400 revolutions per minute, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has one of the slowest hard drive speeds amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year is 4.9MB, the biggest is 8.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 2.9GB. The DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory (only 1,024 megabyte) compared to most of the other personal computers that were released one year ago.
+3 More reasons against
Only One Mini DisplayPort
Most personal computers of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 9020 MT have between one and three mini DisplayPorts, including the OptiPlex 9020 MT which has one mini DisplayPort.
Quite Small Hybrid Hard Drive (H-HDD) Capacity
At only 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT has a fairly small hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity compared to most of the other computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 MT. The smallest hybrid hard drive (H-HDD) capacity of medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT is 8GB and the biggest is 2TB.
4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 MT
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this personal computer was released.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the MSI B85C-060EU (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 MT has a pretty average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 MT.
If this computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Chillblast Fusion Sword 2 (1TB).
