19 Reasons For
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of this spec and age.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Precision T1700 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Precision T1700. Similar spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Precision T1700 have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 640MHz and 1,300MHz.
Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the Precision T1700 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 3.7GB. The DELL Precision T1700 has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (1.74 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.
DELL Has Good PC Reviews
On average DELL medium processor core PCs have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all computers produced by DELL.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of computers of this age and type is 3.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz. The Precision T1700 has a fairly fast processor clock speed (3.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Precision T1700.
Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the Asus M32AD[plb_2702522_price] (3.6GHz), the Lenovo H50[plb_2731658_price] (3.6GHz), or the HP ProDesk 400 G1[plb_3068314_price] (3.6GHz) which is also cheaper.
SSD Storage Medium
The DELL Precision T1700 has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as 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 across all desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Precision T1700.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of computer.
There are a number of alternative SSD personal computers currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper personal computers such as the Zoostorm Intel Core i5 Delta[plb_2756335_price].

The Precision T1700 has more processor threads than most of the medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Precision T1700. This computer is a eight processor thread personal computer compared to most of the medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the Precision T1700 which only have between four and seven processor threads.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
At 256 gigabytes, the Precision T1700 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Precision T1700. Personal computers that were released one year ago have solid-state drive capacities of between 8GB and 1TB.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the DELL Precision T1700 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other PCs that have been available for more than a year. Across all the comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the Precision T1700 the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.
Supports One Case Placement
The DELL Precision T1700 has a greater number of placements than most medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by desktop computers of a similar type and age to the Precision T1700.
