Reasons For

8 Reasons For
19% faster processor frequency Edit
The Apple ME253 has a processor frequency of 3.7GHz, however the DELL OptiPlex 9020 is only a 3GHz processor clock speed PC (0.7GHz slower). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

Bigger processor cache Edit
The Apple ME253 is a 10MB processor cache PC. That's 4MB bigger than the DELL OptiPlex 9020 (6MB).
0.2GHz faster processor boost frequency Edit
The Apple ME253 has a processor boost frequency of 3.9GHz, however the DELL OptiPlex 9020 is only a 3.7GHz maximum turbo frequency PC (0.2GHz slower). Read more

The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.

4GB bigger internal memory Edit
Apple ME253 is 12GB memory, but the DELL OptiPlex 9020 is only an 8GB memory PC (4GB smaller). Read more

A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.

A higher internal memory will allow the computer to run more quickly.

266MHz faster memory clock speed Edit
The Apple ME253 has a memory clock speed of 1,866MHz, whereas the DELL OptiPlex 9020 is only a 1,600MHz memory clock speed PC (266MHz slower). Read more

The frequency at which the memory (e.g. RAM) runs.

48GB bigger maximum internal memory Edit
The Apple ME253 has a maximum internal memory of 64GB, however the DELL OptiPlex 9020 is only a 16GB maximum internal memory PC (48GB smaller). Read more

The maximum internal memory which is available in the product.

Wi-Fi Edit
The Apple ME253 supports wi-Fi, however the DELL OptiPlex 9020 does not support wi-Fi. Read more

Popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio waves.

One more ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports Edit
