+5 More reasons for
Six USB 3.0 Ports
The DELL OptiPlex 9020M is a six USB 3.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020M have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.
The OptiPlex 9020M is one of the shallower desktop computers of this type and age (only 176 millimeters) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020M have depths of between 31mm and 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm.
The weight of the DELL OptiPlex 9020M of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest amongst computers of this type and age. The average weight of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020M is 7.5kg, and the weights range from 38g to 100kg.
With a width of only 36 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020M's width is one of the narrowest amongst medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020M. Across all the similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020M the widths range from 33mm to 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.
4 Reasons Against
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
At only 2 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020M has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020M. The slowest processor clock speed of PCs that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020M is 1.3GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers that were released around the same time as 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.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The DELL OptiPlex 9020M has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs of this age and type. This DELL computer has a 1x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on comparable spec computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020M.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The maximum turbo frequencies of desktop computers of this age and type range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. At only 3 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 9020M has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.
