To the reviewer complaining it only has VGA. That's not true. There's Displayport as well, which, with an inexpensive adapter will get you HDMI...

Wish I knew this before telling a client to purchase this exact model from newegg. There wasn't a review that listed this issue at time of purchase...

Good performance until you need to get it fixed quick
Inexpensive for what you get, has displayport. Great warranty
There is a proprietary power supply and proprietary power connector on system board. You cant just go to any store to purchase a power supply and install it. This is true for all Optiplex 3020
The proprietary power supply. Dell's at it again

Works a treat a frees up a lot of space on anyone's desk. Even better once you've deleted Windows off it!
