Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro range from 750MHz to 1,200MHz. At 1,150 megahertz, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

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

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on personal computers of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

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

This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on comparable spec personal computers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a newer internal memory type than most few processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This DELL desktop computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most few processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. Across all few processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM and the best is DDR4-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a greater number of included cables than most similar spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago. This personal computer has an AC cable included, which is the most commonly found cable included found on few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec computers that are a comparable age to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 2x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this computer. The memory slots 2x SO-DIMM are also found on this personal computer.

Chart Edit

Shallow

At only 176 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is fairly shallow compared to most of the other few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro. Comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro have depths of between 33mm and 1,100mm, and the average depth is 270mm.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Desktop computers of this spec and age have widths of between 29mm and 660mm, and the average width is 180mm. When compared to other personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro's width of only 36 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of few processor core computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro is 100MHz and the fastest is 690MHz. The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (only 200 megahertz) amongst similar spec PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers that were launched around the same time as it. 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 this personal computer to all the other HDD personal computers and we think the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229962_price], and the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3068674_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a PC with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

5 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro

Released Over a Year Ago

This desktop computer was released over a year ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.1 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.

If this PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1[plb_2945530_price] (3.2GHz), or the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_2792845_price] (3.4GHz) which is also cheaper.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 3020 Micro.

We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs to this PC and we think cheaper PCs such as the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2229962_price], and the HP 280 G1[pl_2692083_price] both from HP is also worth considering.

Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3068674_price] (1TB and cheaper).

Average Hard Drive Capacity

The DELL OptiPlex 3020 Micro has a pretty typical hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB hard drive capacity desktop computers currently available including the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2229962_price], or the HP 280 G1[pl_2692083_price] both from HP which is cheaper.

If this DELL PC hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3068674_price] (1TB and cheaper).
