We checked 808 user and expert reviews for DELL desktop computers and found that on average DELL has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that DELL has good ratings specifically within its medium processor core computers range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on new comparable spec personal computers.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of computers that came out around the same time as the Precision T1700 is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 500MHz to 1,400MHz. At 1,200 megahertz, the Precision T1700 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Precision T1700.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The Precision T1700 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.5 gigahertz) amongst similar spec PCs of this age. The processor clock speeds of comparable spec computers that have been around for around the same time as the Precision T1700 range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
If this medium processor core computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo H50-50 (3.6GHz and cheaper), or the HP Z230 ($695.00) (3.6GHz and cheaper).
SSD Storage Medium
The DELL Precision T1700 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most recently released medium processor core computers. Most latest comparable spec PCs 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.
This PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec PCs that were released in the last year.
The worst storage speed amongst similar types of PC is HDD.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other SSD computers currently available including the DELL 7040 which is cheaper.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on latest medium processor core computers.
+13 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
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 medium processor core computers that came out in the last year.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The Precision T1700 is a six USB 2.0 port personal computer.
The Precision T1700 is a two DisplayPort personal computer.
Two 5.25" Bays
Most medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months have between one and three 5.25" bays, including the Precision T1700 which has two 5.25" bays.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The DELL Precision T1700 has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity (256 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Precision T1700. The smallest solid-state drive capacity of latest medium processor core computers is 8GB and the biggest is 520GB.
Eight Processor Threads
The Precision T1700 has more processor threads than most of the PCs that were launched in the last 12 months. Most of the medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Precision T1700 only have between four and seven processor threads, however this personal computer has eight processor threads.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Precision T1700 is more than most personal computers that came out around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on latest comparable spec PCs.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This desktop computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
The narrowest medium processor core computer that was released in the last 12 months is 34mm wide, the widest is 7,100mm, and the average width is 200mm. At only 92.6 millimeters, the Precision T1700 is quite narrow compared to most of the other latest medium processor core computers.
6 Reasons Against
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory capacities (only 2 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the comparable spec PCs that have been available for the last year the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 0.5GB to 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 320GB.
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the slower max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Medium processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 10GB/s and 77GB/s.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The Precision T1700 has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor (only 32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Precision T1700. The max internal memory supported processors of latest medium processor core computers range from 2GB to 1.6TB.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst similar spec computers of this age. The total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Precision T1700 range from 32GB to 3.5TB.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny ($611.89) (500GB) which is also cheaper.
+3 More reasons against
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many computers that were released in the last 12 months.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This desktop computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as it.
2 Other reasons to consider the DELL Precision T1700
Released Eleven Months Ago
DELL released the Precision T1700 eleven months ago.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Precision T1700.
We compared this computer to all the other 8GB memory desktop computers and we think the Lenovo H50 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the HP 550-270na (12GB) which is also cheaper.
