9 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Computer Reviews

Based on 1,204 user and expert reviews, DELL has good ratings for its computers. DELL also has good ratings specifically within its medium processor core personal computers range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Three PCI Express X1 Slots

The OptiPlex 3020 has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the PCs of a similar age and type to the OptiPlex 3020. This desktop computer is a three PCI Express x1 slot desktop computer compared to most of the computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020 which only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots.

Chart Edit

Two 5.25" Bays

Most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020 have between one and three 5.25" bays, including the OptiPlex 3020 which has two 5.25" bays.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The OptiPlex 3020 is one of the shallower personal computers of a comparable type and age to the OptiPlex 3020 (only 176 millimeters) amongst personal computers of this age. The depths of medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 range from 31mm to 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm.

Chart Edit

Light

The weights of personal computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020 range from 38g to 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg. At only 1.3 kilograms, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 is fairly light compared to most of the other computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 36 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020 is very narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020. The average width of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3020 is 180mm, and the widths range from 33mm to 510mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

The OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020. The average processor clock speed of personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 is 3.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.

If this medium processor core desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (2.2GHz and higher rated).

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on desktop computers of this age and spec. 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.

We compared all the other HDD desktop computers to this desktop computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (SSD) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slot

The OptiPlex 3020 has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec PCs that have been available for more than a year. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this DELL personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3020 the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020

Released Over a Year Ago

This medium processor core desktop computer was released over a year ago.

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020.

We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers to this PC and we think cheaper computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 is also worth considering.

Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the DELL PowerEdge T20 (1TB) which is also higher rated.

Average Hard Drive Capacity

The OptiPlex 3020 has a pretty standard hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year.

Other 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available that you might want to look at include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 which is cheaper.

If you want a PC with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the DELL PowerEdge T20 (1TB) which is also higher rated.

These machines are great. Small form factor, decent specs and amazing price. Just install in an additional 4gb RAM and an SSD drive and you have an inexpensive, fast, reliable family or office PC.
